Re: Melding Graham and Browne: My PP + VP Approach

To be young with so much energy... I have adopted the PP + VP approach but the VP is 2x the size and definitively not money I can afford to lose. If these stocks truly represent a fraction of your wealth in relation to the PP then it’s a hobby and the results are only meaningful to you and your psyc...

Re: Stock scream room

There was basically no point to getting out of the market before the crash. (I didn’t). Amazing recovery. I’ve been trimming my vp, though. Seems logical to trim some gains on shares purchased during the decline (no tax implications). I convinced myself to at least rebalance to the more aggressive ...

Re: Stock scream room

Rebalanced out of an International Growth fund that has risen 25%+ YTD (top holdings include Alibaba, Tesla and Amazon - 11.4% in North America). Felt like the wrong move so hopefully its the right one ;D

Re: The tech-dumbell portfolio

I am VERY drawn to a portfolio of cash and gold right now along with paying off all of my existing debt. The PP has served me well. And I am well aware of the money lost over the years thinking "this time is different." I didn't think this time was different in the tech bubble nor in 2008. But I ju...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Big V, If my math is correct, you’re approaching 60+ Switch from softball to golf and you’ll hit the ball further haha...but maybe not at first. Just returned from the driving range and they want 30 feet between players. That’s not even possible unless only one person is on the tee box or green at ...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I ALWAYS walk 2-3 miles post DL workout to maintain flexibility and reduce lactic acid build-up. Next day is light stretching and an upper body workout to stay mobile. Vinny, do what makes you happy and set achievable goals irrespective of what others are lifting. Thor recently deadlifted 1000+ lbs...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

It’s a full body exercise - here is a diagram of the muscles involved during the DL. They don’t highlight the brain nor the muscles in my face that strain under each lift but I feel light-headed and sometimes my teeth ache later in the day. Next day I’m fine.

Nice to see you doing your thing, Budd! People on forums and on the radio never look like what I imagine. I pictured you as a blond, almost Dutchman 😂. Probably because of ZA. Boy was i off.
