I inherited my ABT 11 years ago @ $14 cost adjusted and have collected nice divys.Now what if I sold @ $14 paid 36% Fed/State Tax and put it all in INTC,MSFT,CSCO,LU,SUNW,Nortel,etc I would today be in bad shape. I am not greedy that triple + HSP spin +Divys satisfy me.Now tell me your return of last 11 years trading frequently.I do not expect ABT to triple by 2016 to $126 and I have been reducing my holdings over last 5-years annually to pay kids colleges,house downpayments,etc.You forget I have 3 COLA pensions coming in each month which equate to about a $5 Mil lump sum.Now Persh may be nimble and Aok quick but I have enough 'Jack' that I don't have to jump over the candlestick.Check 6
Now I remember that.
Drug sales people are the worst doctors, even worse than the guys with the masks and the grass skirts /witch doctors/ because........they actually "know enough to be dangeruos to themselves and others"!
With that caveat; I would tell you if you have any more irritation than you would think normal or any swelling, discoloration, etc you need to make a beeline to the Doctor or ER and tell them exactly what BIT you!
They will take it from there, antibiotics, tetanus, etc...we cannot have Garrett's 'papa'
on sick list!
In church, if I was squirming or bothering my brother, mom occasionally pinched me hard. I was to cowardly to scream out. Nowadays a little crumb snatcher would cry out moms pinching me.
<In Calif there is an income tax plus a 10% sales tax. Nissan moved there HQ's to Nashville, So are a lot of others.>
The income tax is somewhere around 9.7%.
Actually, the sales tax on hard goods, cars, nuts and bolts and so forth are 7.75%, but they are always fiddling with that one.
