V6 BEEN FIGHTlW IN SCHOOL Q. I notice that many of your readers are interested In reliremeDt Income. But what about those who are under 40 and want to take an aggressive position In hope of capital gain? Several years ago I bought some airline bonds at HO. The broker told me they were risky, but felt I was In a posltlou to recover my losses. The bonds now trade at 48 and I am still holding some which I plan to pledge for a loan so that I can buy more stocks, bonds. I'm also "heavy" on options. Heel I should take an aggressive position In the market In the hopes of producing large gains. A. You're correct, of course, when you say thai much of this column is income-oriented. The reason is obvious: Relatively safe and generous income today can be produced from high quality bonds, preferreds, commons, savings accounts and Treasury and U.S. agency bonds. Generous capita I gains are no easier to come by I they were in 1676,1896,1946 or 1966. Anyone who goes out for capital gains is obviously taking a higher risk than someone who is content to receive quarterly preferred dividends or semi-annual bond interest. Secondly, this column has no qualms about telling anyone who wants 5H-6 per cent interest (as this is wrillen) and 100 per cenl assurance Ihe money will be returned in December that a Treasury bill due Ihen will fill Ihe bill 100 per cent. U you ask me what slock will show a 5% or 10 or 20 per cenl gain by December, 1 don't hear you. Nor should I hear you. I think the SEC would, properly, lake a dim view of such a n item. Yel, even though 1 am not going to get specific, I agree with your goals 100 per cent. A physician under 40 should... must... be aggressive in his securilies investing. You certainly were being aggressive when you paid 140 for a convertible debenture yielding aboul3 per cenl. Whelher it was explained to you then or not, you now know you were speculating — all out — on the common slock of that company. O.K. your loss won'lscar you for life. The problem arises in trying to answer: What now? 1 recall talking to a senior p«rtMr of i large bond trading houM one morning when a young, while-faced broker rushed in and exclaimed: "Mr I'm down 125,000 already on those Norfolk & Westerns." To which the senior partner calmly replied: "Just go back in there and trade." Which is about as much as I can say to you. Except that I hope you aren't asking me to hold your hand while you lake these risks. You have the youth and... I suppose...can count on having the money. That's sufficient basis (or matriculating in a hard knocks course in "slock market dangers. 1 ' One comment: If you go into options "heavily" be sure you have a broker who not only knows that market but pays close attention to il. U can be tricky. And if you run into further reverses in speculating, remember you can always turn lo a long-term program of steady acquisition of quality growth stocks. On Kcogh and IRA Pension Programs: I've been gelling some pretty tricky questions on how one may qualify under either of these two private pension plans. I must beg lo be excused. The Internal Revenue Service, or your own accountant or lawyer are the places you must go for advice on "iffy" situations. q. I have $15,000 Invested In eight slocks. A broker wants MOO lo sell all of IL I think It Is too much. A. So is 75 cents a pound for collage cheese, and $4.50 for replacing a fuse, and W.OOO for painting a house. Shop around and see if you can do belter. Brokerage rates are now up for grabs — there is no longer a fixed charge, or even a Slock Exchange minimum. 1 litrr.pl terdv D'tJI* In I7no ihe I'S land area totaled (KYOTO square miles and Ihe number of persons per square mile was ( 5. according lo ihe Census Bureau's new "Historical Slalistics of Ihe I'mted Slates.
