Capital has really been boosted by these policies since 2008. Which one could say benefits and does not benefit stockholders. It would depend on when they purchased. Definitely a pile of capital which is what the govt wanted to protect the system.
I try to refrain. That mb warps the minds of our children and weakens the resolve of our allies. Besides it is just stupid.
now now now. unc demo. I am trying to be helpful Ask anyone it did happen. Don' take unnecessary chances. I can tell when people's bp gets to rising because of their nasty tones.
yahoo is a third rate internet service provider which is run by two lone individuals who lack advanced programming skills on another continent. It seems like a lost cause.
L,bnl , lets not get judgey with my bff galpals. She is one in a million. Pedro truly missed the boat on Holly C. I presume he is kicking himself.
LbnlOTW, we missed you. Hope you are doing well. Thanks for adding some financial intellectualism to the list of offerings here. Other than the financial posts that Gillie attempts to put in the mix from time to time, the cupboard of financial topics on this mb seems to be bare.
Welcome back, and tell my girlfriend that she's been missed also.
on your stock picking question, I will add my take which seems to be more and more the norm. Index funds, diversified over time and space. While it is fun to pick individual stocks, and a thrill to pick the immediate winner, the risk is also to be considered. There is so much risk in individual stocks from multiple factors we can't foresee. As long as there is the big broad wave of improving economy, it has been hard to beat the index funds.
I see this same sentiment playing out in the mutual funds vs. index funds also.
Keebon, I will say this as politely as possible. Gillie is not the issue here, nor am i, nor is Billion. . Gillie has shown enormous forbearance in putting up with the constant petty attacks, as I have, and as have others. It is inappropriate to blame Gillie, or anyone else for the faults and shortcomings of a couple of hyenas.
unc-dimo, who is rating your posts with such high ratings? the mystery readers? there are only about four or five people reading this board and most of them don't like internet trolling.
its funny but sad that grown people are reduced to pushing these buttons repeatedly to pretend that someone believes what they say and that they have any sense at all. It is really sad. I fear that a couple of these are living in a paranoid delusion of meglomania. The kook from the wfc board was scary and there's one here who is also one brick short of a load.
