What do you all think about trimming VP stocks after the midterm elections?
Go RealInvestmentAdvice.com, subscribe to the weekly Newsletter, and use the Real 401(k) Manager (at the bottom of the weekly newsletter) to manage the VP. Lance Roberts will advise you to be 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% of full strength. It's free.

Or, use my blog. Subscribe to my GEM blog, and use the signals for managing the VP. Not as nuanced as Lance Roberts, all-in or all-out.

I am super glad I ran into trend-following. I think it was Machine Ghost who tipped me off.

Now that's a rally. Might even last through the day.

I'm glad to hear it. My family has done well with Netflix but I'm below breakeven myself, on that one.

NFLX is up there with AMZN on the number of people who have been bashing it for burning cash for years but they have yet to stop going up. And the people who bash have not stopped bashing. One in particular I recall was calling to short AMZN in the $600s a couple years ago.

I don't really understand the passion some people have with their positions on certain stocks (or gold, or bonds). Why beat yourself up with the wrong analysis, day after day, year after year? Yeah, maybe one day you'll be right and AMZN will lose 50% of its value but that will be to a level higher than when you called to short it.

Just own some of all of them with the PP.

In the late 90s and early aughts, it was short sellers on AOL and Yahoo Message Boards trying to convince everyone to sell.
this bloated pig is going down!
Now, there's no excuse. O0

Yeah, saw that on Bogleheads. Now they’re resuming that perennial argument about international vs all U.S. Why do I even lurk.
