    the risk/reward ratio is exceptionally good. What else

    Uhh.... Follow my strategy and eliminate 95% of the stress your ideas would cause 99% of people who are investing for a retirement. Currently our (my wife and I) managed retirement accounts earn a yearly dividend income that is over 25% of our total retirement income which includes both of our SS payments my USPS retirement payment and $650. a month from Treasuries investments that are not in our "managed" retirement accounts (The treasuries are held in the USPS Thrift Savings Plan - TSP G fund).

    I have listed our holdings and every transaction since I started posting the information a few months ago. How about you doing the same? "Talk" is cheap and that is all I have seen from you....

    Look at some volatility ETF's .
    YTD some have fared better than 20 %. Their outlooks are even better.

    Yes, but it is important to recognize this sale is simply 2% of his FB holdings. He is doing a MINOR change to his portfolio with even this size of a sale!

    Exactly - at some point one must ask "When is enough - enough?"

    The Gates set up a multi-billion dollar charity and Warren Buffet added more billions to their fund so that there would only be one administrative group to further ensure more of the billions went to the charities not overhead. Hopefully at some point as he gets older Mark Zuckerberg will see fit to do the same.

    You almost got me with this one but I did a bit of background checking and found out this....

    Mark Zuckerberg has sold $357 million of stock this month, part of plans to unload up to $12 billion

    Mark Zuckerberg sold $356.8 million worth of Facebook shares this month, ramping up his regularly timed stock selling to fund his philanthropic efforts.

    The CEO and founder has executed seven sale transactions in February, according to his latest securities filings.

    Zuckerberg said last September he would sell 35 million to 75 million shares over the following 18 months to help fund the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

    The planned sales, worth $6 billion to $12.5 billion when announced, would be worth up to $13 billion at the stock's current price near $185 a share.

    According to Zuckerberg's latest statement of stock ownership, filed earlier this month, he still controls 87 percent of Facebook voting shares.

    FB ship has more or less .. sailed. Philanthropy is just where some of these guys go when they need good PR, not all but many. They have accountants, financial advisors, and lawyers telling them how to go about things. Around 20 to almost 200 in 5 years?, it's not a bad time to sell.

    Morgan Stanley: stocks are in a hidden bear market.
    The rolling bear market is fooling everyone at the index level.
    All sectors are down 11 % or more.

    Mark Mobius has the same opinion.
