The research that I did with WP....

Rob, your name doesn't appear anywhere in Wade's paper. I think it's fair to say your claim to be a "co-author" is just another delusional component of the Fables of Hocomania. You poor thing. You've been a Habitual Liar for so long that you've actually come to believe your delusions have some basis in reality. :roll:

Both Michael and Wade know about you Goons. They know about the death threats. They know about the board bannings. They know about the tens of thousands of acts of defamation. They know about the threats to get academic researchers fired from their jobs.

Why don?t they TELL people about these things?

Because they know those are merely the beloved delusions of the mentally ill Internet troll Rob "hocus" Bennett. Since they're delusions by definition they have no basis in reality. M and W are serious individuals with solid careers, not buffoons endlessly trolling the Internet as does Rob "hocus" Bennett as he seeks self-aggrandizement. They have no interest in helping the Johnny Appleseed of Hocomania disseminate his Fables of Hocomania across the land. That's your "job," hocus. :roll:

These are the things that people need to know about for us all to join together and bury the smelly Buy-and-Hold garbage 30 feet in the ground, where it can do no further harm to humans and other living things.

Hocus, I think it's fair to say the results for buy-hold-rebalance portfolios clearly show your Bat$hit Crazy mischaracterization of them is just more garden variety hocomania.

The Power of Diversification and Safe Withdrawal Rates

As WP says;

Thank you to Geoff for emphasizing the important point that portfolio diversification matters, and with better diversification even in the current market environment, it may still be possible to put together a portfolio that will more confidently sustain the 4% withdrawal rate.

Unlike mentally ill Internet trolls, academic researchers are able to assimilate new information.

academic researchers are able to assimilate new information.

Especially when internet goons have threatened to get them fired from their jobs if they continue doing honest work and when they have seen that big names like Jack Bogle and Bill Bernsteinzzz and Larry Swedroe and Rick Ferri are not willing to do anything about it.

I objected. So I won't be going to prison, Yip.

If there ever comes a time when I can do anything to help you, please let me know.

My best wishes to you.

And neither will I or anyone else since the prison sentences you dream await people who poke fun of you and your delusions on the Internet are just more Bat$hit Crazy hocomania. You apparently are destined to spend all the rest of the days of your pathetic pitiful existence in the prison of your mental illness. Rob, forget about helping me. For the sake of yourself, your children and your (ex?)-wife, please seek the psychiatric evaluation and treatment you so desperately need without further delay.

Hocus, I take it you've still got your panties in a bunch because WP wasn't interested in filling the shoes of your Deceased Pensioner Trolling Pal John Walter Russell. My oh my but you ARE a vindictive, spiteful, mentally ill Internet troll! :roll:

Yes hocus, it's not wonder you get your panties in such a knot when presented with real data. The chart above shows just how much money you left on the table by making a poor decision back in 1996. And it shows just how Bat$hit Crazy your peculiar delusion about buy-hold-rebalance never working truly is.

Not to worry, dab. Old Farmer Hocus is either living off the inheritance he received from dearly departed mom & pop or income from a working wife. And he is "working." He's providing us with some cheap entertainment live from the state-of-the-art Hocomania Production Studios located in the basement of 160 Hatcher!
