Re: Stock Indexes Seem Busted. 20% in 4 stocks

It seems pretty goddamn wild, but I'll keep my vanilla PP, and I'll nudge my VP every once in a while. If I had a 100% VTSAX portfolio like so many people nowadays I'd be more nervous knowing stuff like this.

I saw an advertisement on YouTube recently that included Paul Krugman as the instructor in economics for the Masterclass series. Immediately I went "Ummmmmmm. Nope."

Re: The tech-dumbell portfolio

There's something to what mathjak. . is saying too. Having a safe and secure PP combined with a VP that can be more aggressive when you want it to be is the way to go, IMO.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Hot and muggy here in NYC today. I went outside for a walk early this morning, before it got too hot. Heading out of town for a day trip tomorrow. I was checking out cars on the walk too, as I'm considering buying one. Between the endless lockdowns/remote work and the breakdown of public transporta...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I heard Tim Pool talking about moving out of the city (with its CHAZ b.s.) and even out of the suburbs, and growing vegetables in a garden instead of just green lawns. He's speaking your language again, Kriegs. Maybe you are secretly Tim Pool. O0 :D :D ??? ;D "He" just got some guns too. When you h...

Re: Trump's Phone Calls w/ Foreign Leaders

Here's what would make me vote Democratic instead of for Trump: A new candidate in place of Biden who is a centrist/moderate Democrat. That person explicitly repudiates most of the extreme Democratic positions on immigration, green new deal, BLM/reduced policing The person makes a statement that ra...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

For what it's worth, I saw a recent email thread (forwarded to me by my retired physician dad) about ICU capacity in which a PACU nurse pointed out that her medical center runs its ICUs at full or near-full capacity "virtually all the time." It backs up the ER and bleeds into the PACU, which then h...

Re: Meritocracy's Miserable Winners

Over the past few decades, we find that about 80% of the widening residual wage inequality to be within jobs. Furthermore, performance-pay incidence is the single largest factor behind that, accounting for 42% of those changes. Of course this brings us back to the least popular explanation for grow...
