Re: A new book on intellectual property

Before I blew up the cover image, I thought that was a cow wearing a weird mask, and a calf on the left.

Re: The GOLD scream room

I ditched the SGOL in my IRA yesterday. Leave it to me to wait until it sinks down to breakeven. ($50 profit).
It was not NOT part of my pp gold. That gold I have left alone.

Re: Tax implications of reinvesting dividends

I think the IRS is only looking to have brokers track dividends to ensure tax reporting in the year that they're generated. There's nothing that says they have to track reinvested dividends over the years to add into your cost basis when you sell. And it appears they are NOT doing that. I agree, ex...

Re: Tax implications of reinvesting dividends

... " The new reporting rules, signed into law as part of the big bailout legislation in 2008, are being phased in over a few years and don’t necessarily apply to all of your taxable holdings: banks and brokers were required to begin tracking and reporting the cost basis of stocks in taxable accoun...

Re: Tax implications of reinvesting dividends

Where available, I try to stick with two options: average cost per share when I accumulate fund shares, and first-in-first-out (FIFO) when I sell shares of funds and individual stocks. (Note: there are at least a few voices at bogleheads arguing for selling specific lots and not selecting average co...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Wow, I was way off. I was thinking Greece, because all the Greeks I know can write native-like English, + you know, the Greek physique.

Do you have more of a British accent or Afrikaans like the guy in District 9? (I need to hear the proper accent in my head when I read future posts).

Re: The Bond Dream Room

I've owned VCIT for a few years and had no idea what the recent yield was. Nice. - - - By the way, Vanguard seems to be going in the same direction as bank websites: a big stupid screen that looks ok on a phone but not as good as it used to on a desktop monitor. And, some columns have been removed, ...

Re: vanguard vs fidelity

Sorry to hear that. I have little dealings with them these days. I used to put money into a solo 401(K) every year in person, but they annoyed me. (Ok, and my accountant talked me out of it. Don't ask, it's already in some other thread). Vanguard is a bit clunky, and they have no physical branches, ...
