Re: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

According to Tucker, NPR was also reporting that her dying words were that she wanted her replacement picked by a new president. I dunno. Delaying a Supreme Court nomination another 4 years is a pretty big ask. ;) (But all jokes aside, the callous spin here is pretty insane. I wish people who claim...

According to NPR, there are at least 5 republicans that will not vote until after Jan 20.
We're just a few hours in. I'm not buying that NPR has a hard count either way before the bargaining and arm twisting even starts. We'll see.

I feel like my timeline crossed somewhere and I jumped into an alternate universe where everything is the same but people call me Taylor. ;)

Re: An odd choice for a VP: Wellesley

Taylor, I know I have asked about this before and no doubt have no idea of how hard and complicated it might be but since there is a lot of historical data for the Wellesley fund (and the Wellington fund), could it be possible to add these funds to your portfolio charts options and see if how they ...

Re: An odd choice for a VP: Wellesley

Of course the fund is narrowly concentrated in handpicked IT corporates and dividend stocks and with U.S. valuations being so rich a fund that holds no international seems somewhat suspect (but of course the PP doesn't hold any either). If you like Wellesley and also want international exposure, th...

Re: Factor investing

I'm a fan of stock factors in portfolio building, but I absolutely agree that they're commonly abused and misunderstood by laypeople and professionals alike. Personally I think two areas that lead many overzealous factor investors astray are: 1) Unrealistic academic definitions that pump up numbers ...

Re: Politics

While I'm not opposed to political discussion in moderation, since I generally surf the forum by selecting "active topics" on the top left the number of political posts can be overwhelming. One technical request would be an "all investing topics" option that shows the results for every forum BUT the...

Re: Winkelvoss Capital says Bitcoin is a 10x better inflation hedge than gold

Men working to start a bitcoin ETF promote bitcoin.

I don't completely dismiss Bitcoin as an upstart alternative currency. But I will say that if the only points in the section "the problem with gold" are asteroids and the third-best Die Hard, then I'm not too worried about gold in my lifetime.

Re: Tyler hits it out of the park - again!

I figured the crew here would enjoy that one. :)

It took a while to put together, but I admit it's kinda nice to finally document everything. I'm glad to hear it makes sense!

Re: POLL: How did you overcome the fear of tracking error?

Though I have one question: 1) For longer duration bonds, once the interest rate is getting lower and negative , their values can appreciate at a much greater pace, and act as a nice protection to the portfolio. But one concern raised by some investors like Ray Dalio is more about how low the yield...

Re: If you're planning to flee a blue state, don't wait too long

Yeah, I don't see how collecting state taxes from someone who hasn't set foot in the state for years can possibly be enforceable. But the simple fact that a state assemblyman thinks it's something he can pull off is sure to chase off even more taxpayers. It's a classic lose-lose political move. ::)
