Re: YouTube Junkie

The Cranberries - Dreams (live 1994 London) :D :D :D A local band I've seen many times (and have taken innumerable pictures of) used to have two excellent female singers. They did this song. Thought their version was better than what I saw in the above. You can be the judge. This is them doing the ...

Say you’ve identified an asset allocation that has returned an average of 10% nominal over the last 50 years ( std dev 8.8 ). ...

Re: When will indexing blow up?

LEXCX holds a sizeable proportion in Union Pacific, and some Berkshire Hathaway stock. Initial equal weight not rebalanced will tend to end up like that, more average weighting in the stock(s) that did well. Rebalancing has a tendency to reduce the concentration risk, whilst still tending to achiev...

Re: Is anyone else buying TIPS?

Cash investors should consider taxation as well as inflation. I-bonds have superior tax treatment compared to TIPS: I-bonds come with 30 years tax deferral, interest compounded semi-annually. TIPS do not. I-bonds create extra tax deferred space. TIPS in tax-advantage accounts take up that space. I-...

I own some of the Vanguard short-term TIPS fund, but, not increasing my allocation


Isn't that a totally different investment from actually holding the TIPS and holding them to maturity?
