Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Kapids Gazelle: Tucs., Mar. 5, 1974 I he Investor's course, some mutual funds will accept us little as al- By Sam Shulsky Q We are a young couple, during a market slump, on the; assumption that the market will! The Cedar Itupids Ciazelle: Toes., Mar. 5, 1974 cit HAWKEYE impressed with two small A I'd say you were an ex- cellent example of young people who should begin to invest and, Sam Shulsky what's more, invest in some thing in which you have specia knowledge. Assuming you have alreadj set up a life insurance program and accepting your savings ac count as sufficient for j'our emergency needs, I'd say star now whether the market is high or low. You mention two small com- munications companies which have impressed you. I certainly would not presume to argue with an expert in the field, bul will point out that both are ex- tremely volatile price perform- ers, have had wide-swinging earnings records in fact, one now shows a small deficit. That, -however, should not deter you if you feel the compa- nies are on the uptrend. Your only decision is not whether you should or invest now (answer to both is but whether you feel confident to make, a big commitment or prefer to set up a program for gradually acquiring the stocks, all the while keeping close track of the companies' progress. As to making assumptions that stocks bought in a slump will recover: don't.. Not unless you have definite answers to a lot of problems overhanging (he stock market. Q A friend who invested in a mutual fund re- ceives a month income. Shouldn't she also be receiving additional dividends and stock certificates? A The monthly income must come out of whatever the fund can earn in the form of dividends and interest on securi- ties owned, plus whatever capi- tal gains it can make in suc- cessful market operations. Or, out of capital. In such a level withdrawal program, the fund pays out only the requested amount in this case, If it generates more than a year in income and capital gains, it reinvests this excess in additional shares. If it generates less, it draws on capi- tal. No additional payments are called for. Q I am a widow, 71, with 100 shares of an airline stock which has dropped from my purchase price and which has halted dividend payments. Should I hold on? Will it come back to my cost price? A Lacking a crystal ball, I can't tell. All I can tell you with any conviction is that it suits your lifestyle about as well as a pogo stick. The money should be in safe, generous, dividend- paying utility preferreds. Q Do you think it's a good idea for a 19-year-old to give a broker a month? A Under the stock ex- change's monthly investment plan, the minimum investment is although it may be made once in three months. Some commercial banks are now ac- cepting cash for purchase of' stocks on a periodic basis. Ofi Q _ To m s s thc most money in ,he next ,3 years should I buy a retirement policy or utility stock? A Neither sounds like a gung-ho way of building a for- tune. The annuity plan can pre- dict to (lie penny what you would have. The utility stock is hardly a fast mover. You'll have to take your chances with riskier growth stocks. Mr. Shulsky welcomes written ques- tions, but he will be able io provide an- swers only throunh the column.

He notes further that he is sure to get the lead with his (ing of diamonds so that if he does not hop up with his ace of spades his partner won't be lurt. Then he plays his eight of spades. South can do no better nan win the trick with the queen or 10. He loses the dia- mond finesse. East cashes his ace of spades and leads the four spot where- upon West takes two spade ricks.
