Re: The GOLD scream room

Based on his posts, it seemed that Budd's primary reason for being here was to be reassured that he is a WINNER. WINNERS don't make the mistake of investing in strategies or assets that underperform. Underperforming strategies or assets are simply LOSERS. LOSERS that SUCK! The dollars aren't the iss...

Re: BOA - $20 an hour

I have teenagers, so I see the inside of places like McDonalds and Taco Bell more often than I'd like. Both restaurants (at multiple locations) have added self-service kiosks with touch screens for ordering. I'm always sure to ask my kids the rhetorical question: "You think they're paying these kios...

More information is at www.partnershipforlongtermcare.com.
People should also look for information on their state's official website. The website above seems to be run by an anonymous third party.

If nothing else, good fences make good neighbors. A good fence clarifies things.

Re: Google Sheets hasn't pulled PHYS price for a long time

I figured out what's going on with this. Google Finance now uses PHYS.U for Sprott Physical Gold Trust. PHYSX is PIA High Yield Fund Institutional Class.

So just enter PHYS.U and your spreadsheet should update again.

But quickly close it before you see your new total portfolio value. :)

Re: The GOLD scream room

It’s good to diversify, but not at the cost of realizing enough gains to reach your goals that only will come with a higher stock allocation. I am quoting Budd here to illustrate a point, but my comments are not specifically about or directed toward him. Something I have noticed over the years is t...

Re: The GOLD scream room

I’ve sat through a decline in Gold on par with any market crash. I also had about 900K invested in 2008 so I think I qualify as living through a market crash. I didn't say you hadn't lived through one, I said you had not been sufficiently scared by one. And 900K invested when you were 11 years youn...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Budd has not yet been sufficiently scared by a major market crash, that's really all there is to it.

Re: Google Sheets hasn't pulled PHYS price for a long time

Yeah, I'm not sure what's up with that. I just paste the current price into my spreadsheet temporarily so that it can update and then ctrl+z to go back to the formula hoping that the issue will eventually get resolved. Or at least that's what I would do if I was checking, which of course I am not......

Re: An excellent article on TDS

2. Intelligent men are rightly scared to go to college in the US because of the complete lack of due process if they are accused of sexual misbehavior. N=1 and all, but as the father of a teenage son who is starting to look at colleges, I don't think (and he and his friends don't appear to think) t...
