Re: Poll: Have You Thought Of Leaving Forum Because Of Politics?

I’m visiting Bogleheads more often as this site has devolved into a political forum. That’s all there ever is to read about around here. I HATE politics so maybe I’m biased. I’m grateful this site started around the time I began investing in the PP else I never would have ascribed to the philosophy ...

Re: Seeking alpha looks at tlt

I’m out of TLT entirely at 160.xx
Personally feel as if I am sitting on a 3 legged stool although 1 of the legs is as thick as an OX (cash)

Well done, Budd. You should be very proud.

Solid portfolio, BTW. It's nice to see young investors appreciate the value of commodities.

Re: Stock scream room

I don’t disagree but certain areas of the market are either still -ve YTD or only slightly positive <+5%.
REITs fall into the first camp and SCV in the latter.

I’ve lightened up on SPY and kept investing in SC, SCV and REITs.

80/20 VTI/IAU for my 17YO

Had to share with the only group that might consider this a milestone for father and son. The boy started working at Walgreens and has been averaging 20-25 hrs/wk for the last few months. Friday I transferred his funds to a custodian account at eTrade and bought VTI/IAU 80/20. He’ll be adding ~1K/mo...

Re: The Bond Dream Room

The question for me was how far yields would climb before they fell, not if they would fall.

Re: How the legislatures can stop the stealing

Seems as though a few networks are calling the Presidency for JB this morning. I personally despise government politics and, following retirement, can look back on my career and state with certainty I hated office politics as well. Too many get wrapped up in this idiocy and with a split presidency a...
