Re: New Gold ETF - GLDW

I'd guess it's for people who thing global demand for gold will go up, but don't want additional currency exposure?

Re: PP Performance for 2016

So if I've stuck with the PP through it's dog years, I'll probably also stick through a 100% equities portfolio through it's inevitable dog years?

Re: Renewable electricity sources are now a no-brainer

If you bemoan the poor state of political discourse nowadays but can't resist making bitter, snarky comments about your political opponents and their follies, foibles, and failures, understand that you are part of the problem . Be the change you want to see in the world. Are you talking to me? Beca...

Re: 20% annual returns over 40 years...interested?

I did rebalance into gold/TLT but so far it's overall negative. Nice to beat the S&P over a 2 month period, but that can happen with almost any holding

Re: Renewable electricity sources are now a no-brainer

I sense that we are about to have a climate change thread. :) Improved air quality and a layer of protection from widespread grid outages are reasons enough to pursue local wind and solar installations. Extra benefit if costs are lower. Uh, air quality and grid outages are just an invention of the ...

Re: Renewable electricity sources are now a no-brainer

Who's fighting solar? I'm not a fan of rooftop solar (so ugly) but I'd love for my utility to build plenty of solar and give me a fat discount. If they need funding, they can offer a deal where I pay for the panels and they give me the output.

Re: Is America Safe, Or Not?

I think the comment is forgivable if not intended to be be offensive, but the correct response is to apologize not rage quit and imply that the offended party is wrong.

I say this because it didn't initially strike me as offensive either, but dualstow made it extremely clear with his analogy.

Re: Google Sheets pulling wrong price for TLT

Google is missing TLT data in general for the last few days. I like Google's portfolio viewer the best for interface and features, but their historical data is kinda crap.

Re: PP Performance for 2016

I mostly use a PP (last year included some 2xPP), but this is IRR of my entire net worth and savings, so it includes some other returns over my entire assets (real estate, cash on hand, etc.). 1 YR - 9.3% 3 YR - 4.8% 5 YR - 5.6% "lifetime" 4.6% (CAGR) - it was up to something like 8% lifetime earlie...
