I’ll say prices down in the near term at least.

Re: I shared fake news and feel like an idiot

My dad shared fake news all the time. I joked about it at his funeral. :)

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Cruise ships. I would guess the ships are foreign flagged, but the US cruise companies are US companies paying US taxes on applicable income. They probably are able to minimize that through various internal arrangements though. The reaction you are having can also be applied to any company that has ...

Re: The GOLD scream room

I can’t foresee any good reason to sell gold in the PP. Say it goes up to 40% of your PP. You really want to rebalance out? I don’t think I could. This is what the book says. Actually up to 35%. :-) You’re right but I just can’t see myself selling even at 50%. Or any level. I’d be more likely to ju...

Re: Fed Going Nuclear - Will the PP get radiation poisoning?

ACE Inhibitors and CV

Has anyone been looking into the theory about patients who take ACE inhibitors having worse outcomes due to the way the drug works on cells? I don’t have a link off hand. My diabetic wife takes Lisinopril for healthier kidneys. I’m in the info gathering phase before I take on the thankless task of s...
