I second that comment. ALLIND, please call in!! I still have a lot of money in RERGX (Europacific Growth R6) and RNPGX (New Perspective R6) in my TIAA and Fido accounts.

Several posters didn't move over to the new Discussions - ALLIND, Delo..., etc.

This may change as some who previously said that they won't move did - RetiredLimmoman, Avvocato, etc.

Re: Where's ALLIND? Miss his Input!

It would be nice to see ALLIND on this new forum.  I always enjoyed reading his posts, and for sure he helped a lot of us out by sharing his deep knowledge of American funds.  I always had the impression that he enjoyed helping out, and his posts were insightful and easy to read and understand.  I asked him for his thoughts on INPAX, one of the portfolio funds, and his response was extremely helpful, I printed it out and put it in my Big Book of Investing Stuff.

I'm pretty sure ALLIND coined the priceless phrase,

"Volatility is the price you pay for growth."

I always knew that but never reduced it to that level of simplicity.

I got away from that universal truism for a couple of years after retiring, but got back to it in a big way after reading it posted here many times.  It's been a godsend to my retirement investment strategy and a big boost to my portfolio.

Re: Where's ALLIND? Miss his Input!

   I had the Honor of starting this thread/topic, and am very happy that all of you share my sentiments.

I echo the above observation[s] as to the clarity of his postings.

From my perspective, his greatest attribute other than constantly exhibiting character, class, and never, ever engaging in coarse, base  arguments Ad Hominem, is that I actually understood en toto, his analysis and advice.

I am in no way suggesting he ever ' dumbed-down ' his comments, he rather had/has the talent to make a  complex subject-matter understood by the average investor.

Truly wish him well, wherever he is in Life's Journey.
