Seriously, Dualstow is a great guy and his absence has me kind of worried. Praying that you're okay, my friend.

Sell In May?

There's an old adage for the stock market that says
"Sell in May and walk away."

Has anyone actually researched this to see if it's good advice?


If it is, this might be a good time to rebalance the portfolio away from stocks.

Take from cash first to avoid tax implications. Then rebalance when cash reaches the bottom of the band.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

I just purchased a fairly sizable amount of GBTC to supplement my gold holding. It's sure looking like bitcoin is replacing gold as an inflation hedge.

Note: This will probably be the absolute top of bitcoin's rise. Lol.

Re: Does anyone om know anyone that is even sick?

I believe a better question is are the Covid numbers over inflated? Why are there virtually no cases of the flu? These are fair questions.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Cuomo is being driven out by progressives because they want to have control of the tens of billions of dollars that will be incoming from Washington. It's a bonanza for them and they want to use it for their social experiments.

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I got my 2nd Pfizer shot 2 days ago. Arm is still sore but diminishing. I definitely felt weak, kind of like flu symptoms and I'll take it easy for another day or two. I can still feel the effects from the shot.

Re: Vanguard Treasury MM investing in repo agreements

@ Maddy: The risk of using a Treasury money market fund that employs repos is very small. I use FDLXX, Fidelity's Treasury money market fund specifically because it does not invest in Treasury repos. However, kevin K is correct: FDLXX has a 0.29% net expense ration, or slightly more expensive than ...

I have a lot of research to do first, but the idea keeps nagging at me to buy an airline stock and hold it for a year or 2, or 5. Like Southwest.
Is that nutty? Or does it make sense.
I'd probably buy it 2 to 4 weeks from now.
Don't buy airline stocks. Ever.
