Re: Trying to make sense of PRPFX performance

PRPFX has been something of a thorn in my side when I'm trying to sell people on the PP strategy. They often do Googling and point to the performance of PRPFX as a reason not to invest. I always have to remind them that PRPFX is not the true PP. That find just annoys me. So much active management a...

Re: Stock scream room

Bogglyhead panic build... forum titles. Everyone has a plan until they get stabbed. Have we hit bottom? Time to buy? Selling 100% stocks on a bounce Why isn't this time different? Do ppl who rebalance annually do anything different in this type of market? Why not stand on the sidelines for a little...

Mike Maloney used to make this joke all the time.

Not Federal. No reserves. Not a note.

It's counterfeiting and illegal.
Sorry to have to correct you, but it is legal counterfeiting.
Unfortunately.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

...according to people like Bill Gates, it looks like an April reopening of the economy is no bueno. What exactly did he say? When does he expect the lockdown to end? https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/03/27/bill_gates_returning_to_normal_life_in_april_is_not_realistic.html It was this ar...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Day.... 14 of self-isolation? I am playing through the game Uncharted 4 during lockdown. As a PP investor the game has extra appeal since the whole object of the storyline has been to recover a lost pirate treasure of gold that amounts to some $400 million. Also, Better Call Saul is an excellent sho...

Lily indeed does get regular claw trimmings. And she uses them!

When you're petting her and walk away too soon, she chases you and swipes at your ankles. ;D

Re: Desert Portfolio vs PP

The desert portfolio... particularly one with factor tilling in the equity, is what I consider to be a gateway drug to the PP. 25% gold is too bitter a pill to swallow for many people. 10% just gets them in the door. So I guess 10% gold is marijuana. 25% gold is hardcore Breaking Bad levels of drug ...

Re: Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

Going to put this out there -- I LOVE conspiracy theories. For entertainment value... mostly. O0 I'm personally 100% of the belief that COVID-19 has totally natural origins where the wrong, say, bat came into contact with a human. The Joe Rogan podcast with Michael Osterholm was very insightful. The...
