San Francisco

I'm glad I don't live in San Francisco. When several major conferences move to other cities because of dirty streets this is telling... But that would be a topic for a separate thread. Here's the new thread. Can you elaborate on where you see this going? How much convention revenue (which is a sh!t...

Re: Why Obama won

If they drive the top 1% of taxpayers out, their fiscal situation will totally collapse. Maybe that will finally make them reform. Since the wealthiest people in CA are Hollywood elites and Silicon Valley millionaires, all of whom vote very Liberal, the collapse may drag on a lot longer than you th...

Re: Where did you go to School?

So during that hour my friends and I smoked a lot of marijuana. I seem to remember us listening to "A Child's Garden of Grass" record. One of the friends wanted to steal a scale from one of the science buildings (for use in his marijuana dealings). I swear this was also an early episode of Louie (L...

Re: Larry Swedroe's Comments on the Permanent Portfolio

I'm not talking about TIPS as a replacement for gold, but as I think Larry meant, as a replacement for Long Term Treasuries. I would highly recommend TIPS as superior to other Fixed Income investments for tax advantaged accounts as they hedge both inflation and deflation, while LT bonds only hedge d...

A thread about car-less living.

Way to rub salt into my wounds, guys. ::)
You could even change the subject line to Careless Living, and it would still be a burn. O0

Even in the burbs, you would have a really tough time without a car.

Re: Larry Swedroe's Comments on the Permanent Portfolio

I would highly recommend TIPS as superior to other Fixed Income investments for tax advantaged accounts as they hedge both inflation and deflation, while LT bonds only hedge deflation. And the literature on the subject is all on that side, TIPS should be the preferred choice for tax advantaged acco...

Re: Fidelity - SHV BIL or TBILL ladder (auto roll)

Cash sweep question... what is the difference between FDRXX Fidelity® Government Cash Reserves and SPAXX Fidelity ® Government Money Market Fund They seem very similar to me. FDRXX has a tiny bit higher 7-day yield at this time, and a tiny bit less "repo". I just changed my cash sweep option to FDR...

Re: Best account for trading options, from a tax point of view?

Anything but the taxable account is better.

If you know they are going to be winning trades rather than losing, use the Roth. But if you know they are going to be losing, then don't make the trade. :o

Re: Stock and ETF brokerage costs plunge

Accounts landed very quickly at Fidelity. Trying really hard to find where things are and get used to it. I think it'll be fine. I am going to not take any calls which say SCHWAB on my Caller ID. Don't need the harassment. I wouldn't worry. When I moved most of my money out, I never heard from them...
