    Now is the time to buy not sell

    Inflation, record gas prices, record food prices, falling markets, and political turmoil. In the short term this all looks bad. But what is your reason for investing? Are you investing for the quick buck? If so, you’ll be tearing your hair out as you watch thousands, perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands, evaporate from your […]

Arrow Financial Corp (AROW) has a current dividend yield of 3.47% and is rated as “Very Safe” by SimplySafeDividends. I hold AROW in my Low and Medium Yield Portfolios. […]

    Having another rough day in the markets

    I’m not doing better than the Dow today but I am still out performing the S&P and Nasdaq. Here’s to hoping that people start bargain hunting and bring things up a bit towards the end of the day. Personally I’ve felt the Dow in particular is still double where it should be naturally. Something changed […]

    My dividend stocks are out performing the market today

    The inflation numbers came out today and the stock market started dropping like a rock. All the indexes are down over 2% with the Nasdaq getting clobbered at 3.27% as of this writing. My three portfolios are down today as well but not nearly to the same extreme as the rest of the stock market. […]

    Markets drop over 1% at the end of the day

    Stock losses accelerated toward the end of the trading session, leaving major indices around session lows by the time the market closed. The Fed minutes, released Wednesday afternoon, showed most officials believe the economic recovery has advanced enough that the central bank could begin the tapering process sometime this year. That put some pressure on stocks, which […]

  • Inflation remains a lingering problem

    Inflation remains a lingering problem

    I wish the federal government would back off a bit. Then we might know exactly where we stand. Eviction and foreclosure moratoriums, a $1 trillion plus infrastructure bill, and now a $3.5 trillion budget blueprint will only cloud things on this economy. The Labor Department reported Wednesday that its consumer-price index rose 5.4% in July from a […]
