    Yes sir... 401k mostly indexes bonds 80%stocks20%bonds. Private portfolios usually bought individual bonds. Sometimes preferred stocks or stable income stocks. I just hate to pay all those funds fee and at end performance worst than indexes

  • Hi Mark,

    I'm building a portion of my portfolio with individual stocks to generate income. It's hard finding any good deals in this market. I've found two that I thought I'd share:

    UMPQ ( regional bank in Oregon, WA, and Idaho ) that yields 3.7%. I'm waiting for a pullback before buying. Hoping to start position around 16 per share

    SNY ( you probable know about this one )

    Take care
