Re: What's going on with silver?

Excellent. I was hoping for an opportunity to add to my physical collection today. ;)

Joe Biden had better not be the Democratic candidate...

His creeping on little girls alone would torpedo him amongst the liberal base.
Biden is way past his sell by date
Agreed.

If you guys haven't seen the Sarah Silverman special A Speck of Dust you should. It's also excellent.

Re: Netflix junkie

lol that Chapelle set is hilarious...

My favourite joke is when he tells the story of a vagrant that offers to perform unspeakables on him for five dollars.

He retches in total disgust and just says..... "Two."

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

Right, thanks for the input. I, too, lost interest in doing any kind of financial analysis or looking at companies for a couple of years. Over the past little while my fascination with security analysis has made something of a comeback. The VP is a perfect place for me to partake in this mental exer...

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

Graham and Browne The more I read about the stock portion of the PP, the more I'm convinced that Craig and Tex may have taken a slightly wrong turn in their book. Browne has said in both Fail-Safe investing and How the Best Laid Plans that the stock portion of the PP should have greater volatility ...

Melding Graham and Browne: My PP + VP Approach

Hey all. I just wanted to share my latest thinking in approaching the PP and Browne's investment strategy. I don't want to write a wall of text in one post, so i'll separate this into two posts. Thoughts on VP and PP The first thing I'd like to note is that the discussion around the PP as of late ha...

Re: It's all about China

I've had boots on the ground here in Vancouver looking at the housing market for the past several years. It's not quite as bad now, but yeah, for a while it was unbelievable. An entire mcmansion would be, allegedly, owned by a single asian person who listed their occupation as "student at UBC". The ...

Re: Netflix junkie

Hmm, I’ll have to check that person out. She is utterly hilarious, and as far as stand up comedians are concerned, is my current favourite. Outside of comedy though? She's made some comments during interviews (she has several Joe Rogan podcast episodes) that have made me think she's a little uncout...

Re: The Bond Dream Room

One thing that I really love about the PP is how it makes it so that I don't have to think about interest rates, yield curve inversion, credit risk, or anything of the sort. A while ago I was talking to a few coworkers and they kept trying to game up strategies and discuss what the yield curve and i...
