Why no mention or use of any of Vanguard's various ETF offerings? In most cases the lowest fees available and for Flagship clients no commissions. Results in most cases are competitive on a lifetime basis.

An excellent article, but the individual still has to determinr what his overall objectives are and which ETF's are most appropriate. This article should be read and reread.

Great Article!
I wish you could list all of the ETF's in a separate column so that I can copy them and paste them directly into my trading software .

Some good specific suggestions of ETFs for specific purposes. Discussion of Vanguard ETFs would be useful

Charles Rotblut from IL posted over 2 years ago:

Hi,

Real estate ETFs are included in the annual ETF guide, which is also in the August issue. They are also discussed in the September Journal, which will we have up soon.

Why no model portfolio for ETF's? You have one from Mutual Funds and Shadow Stocks.


Charles Rotblut from IL posted about 1 year ago:

Leonard, the Model Fund portfolio holds both ETFs and mutual funds.

Have you considered SYLD, the Cambria Shareholder Yield ETF?


Russell Chevrette from OR posted about 1 year ago:

Max Isaacman cites a Guggenheim study that states bear markets last, on average, about 18 years. But Mark Hulbert, in an article entitled Bear Markets by the Numbers, states "The average bear market since 1900 has lasted 410 days, according to calculations conducted by Ned Davis Research." (By comparison, Guggenheim looked at the last 50 years.)
So why the difference? Perhaps the time period examined? Perhaps different definitions of what constitutes a bear market? You can't tell from these soundbite articles. One can write an article that produces anxiety, while another can produce Stoic resolve. Unless the fundamental assumptions are defined and clarified and defended, I can't help but be skeptical about any conclusions derived from them.
