Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Interesting legal discussion on your rights in Australia.

IIRC, the total stock + smallcap value combo is more of an equal weighting across the spectrum of stocks.
I aim for 20% total stock and 20% small cap
Basically vti and vb ETFs

Basically golden butterfly but I decided I would rather just have all the small stocks than just value.

I've often wondered about this. I think others have too. My best guess is that as long as the PP has not been broken, he wouldn't...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I guess I wish more people out there knew they already had the virus and got over it. Our backwards regulations are not looking at real science showing this is the best protection. This doctor in Australia hints he would think about trying to get infected after being vaccinated. Although says to fol...
