#1 If so, investing conservatively will be profitable enough, and I’ll sleep better at night.

But this will be fabulous for the retired cohort living off their investments. My mother has had no interest to speak of over the past eight years, and dividends have fallen as well, so she’s had to dig into her principal. This makes her unhappy. Granted, at 91 this is less of a concern than it might otherwise be, but her uncle lived to 107. It will be even more important for the Millennials, who’ve fallen so far behind older cohorts at the same stage, both in terms of wages and investment growth.

#2 For what it's worth observations:

No dividend... no buy. Stock pays moderate dividend (1.5% to 4.0%) for over 15-20 years without interruption? Good to go. High dividend payers can be very risky. Sector diversification is key. Don't become wedded to any individual stock or sector. Re-investing dividends allows dual track growth. Market futures investing? - no way Jose.

One man's definition of success is achieving a return 2-3% above bank passbook rates. Bottom line, monitor your portfolio, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose, and keep cash on hand (in bank) as well.

#6 Even with decent earnings reports, forward P/E rations are still at or above 22, way above the historical norm of 15 or so.
