Surely no one in America wants reporters in these awful places. I'm going to stop reading first hand articles by them, and maybe they will stop going.
You are adorable, jimmmeyoncrack, no matter what anyone else says.
Just read something about CMG growth. They've targeted millenials with short, sweet 15 second ads, Willie Nelson, fresh local food sources, and treating their chickens kindly before hacking off their heads.
I remember that. Tony and Ziva got locked in the crate, lit the bills and sent them out the window.
FB seems to be the go-to stock on red days. Buy, buy, buy!
One article says options is the holy grail, another says it doesn't have to be. So I was feeling better with this piece, because not doing options does things to my self-esteem. At times.
Sorry about the TDA platform. It really does look impressive. And like nothing could ever go wrong using it...
This article makes me feel fabulous for shucking the idea of options to the wind. So here it is in part, especially for those OTHER cowards who have not ventured into the arena of what makes this bizarre world go 'round. (So they say).
"Maximum Pain is one of those lovely/wacky theories out there in options-land: unproven, anecdotal, sometimes true & awe/fear/anger-inspiring. It’s essentially a big #$%$ YOU‘ to the option-buying public from the Market Makers/assumed option sellers/hedgers. Yes, the market is indeed out to get you. Depending on your mindset, that may strike a cord…
The theory mostly stems from the general assumption/old-wives’-tale that [make up a percentage, say 80%] of all options expire worthless on Expiration Friday (like today). While this is patently untrue (the vast majority of options are traded, rather than held, well before expiration), the idea/myth/legend remains.
And sure, no doubt there’s something to it. Afterall, most options are sold by the BIG BOYS who leverage them against vast quantities of underlying stock…so, theoretically, if they wanted to truly manipulate the market, they could sell/buy the underlying as needed. As net sellers of options, they would definitely have vested interest in seeing as many of those expire worthless as possible."

Active versus index investing:
"The major point is to consider with active versus index investing is apples-to-apples, that is, with each adjusted for the risks involved. Since the index investor gets the market return at the market level of risk, active managers must outperform consistently to overcome the down years they experience, times when their strategies fall out of favor.
But let's assume they do that. And let's assume that the active fund somehow beats its benchmark by 0.5%, year after year. Even so, Ellis explains, such a fund charging 1.25% in fees and a 12b-1 fee of 0.25% as a percentage subtracted from assets is in fact asking the retirement investor to accept a constant 75% hit on the return."
from MarketWatch, Charlie Ellis, "Active Managers Take 100% of Your Gains"
I would vote for the party who could eliminate all of the useless daily mail. That would include all of the redundant BCBS, etc. stuff.
What I have done to enhance the quality of my routine is brilliant imho. But it has come out of desperation. I go to the curb mailbox maybe 2 X a week now (actually more like 1 and a half). It's a beautiful thing. If you need me - call, and to hell with the rest.
As I was saying before being so rudely deleted. . . "He" does reply. Maybe not to you. Oh well.
