Keystone approval in SECONDS!!! The US has tens of thousands of mile of pipelines. Who cares except for the democraps? Ed
What do ya know? Yahoo is working today and I can post! Best of all Yahoo is honoring my ongoing "ignore" request on Mike which for days has'nt worked which wastes my time sifting through his nonsense and all the posts addressing his posts. Not much of a message board.......... Ed
The trading is a joke shorts covering and new shorts selling imaginary shares. Churn, churn, churn......until some good news comes out .Yahoo continues to be dysfunctional most of the time. ed
This is one of the few days Yahoo seems to be functioning. On this thread ALONE I'm able to skip over 10 messages from the troll in Iggy land. Ed
Ever wonder why Diamondcutter297 has not posted lately? He is probably very busy. Most likely he hooked up with the Houston group and were in discussions with HERO. He's working on something.
A dividend would be nice............Ed
Harry, finally after days Yahoo is allowing me to post. About the 0% tax.... That is a Bush tax cut that became permanent when congress raised the maximun tax rate tp 36.6%. Beginning in 2014, those in the 10% or 15% bracket pay NO capital gains taxes on LONG TERM gains and QUALIFIED dividends. So Harry all your short term trading profits will be taxed and so will the dividends if you fail to achieve the holding period for stocks. Stop trading and get off margin. Go have a gimlet or two. Limes are on sale. Ed
Gee, Yahoo is working today. I can actually post a message. It's a ABOUT TIME! Now "Mike" is on ignore again. Thank goodness! I don't have to wade through his dribble. 1/2 the messages on this board are his worthless garbage. What a loser! Ed
The bottom line
If you qualify for the 0% rate, congratulations. Thank George W. Bush, because the 0% rate was part of the so-called Bush tax cuts, many of which are still on the books. Ed
You may owe 0% on your investment profits
Despite the tax hikes included in the misnamed American Taxpayer Relief Act, long-term capital gains and qualified dividends earned in your taxable brokerage firm accounts are still taxed at 0% when they fall within the 10% and 15% federal rate brackets.
Many more people than you might think occupy these bottom two brackets. Remember: your bracket is determined by the amount of your taxable income, which equals adjusted gross income reduced by allowable personal and dependency exemptions and by the standard deduction amount (if you don’t itemize) or your total itemized deductions (if you do itemize).
Say you are a married joint filer with two dependent kids. You claim the standard deduction for 2014. You could have up to $102,000 of adjusted gross income (including long-term capital gains and dividends from securities) and still be within the 15% rate bracket. Your taxable income would be $73,800, which is the top of the 15% bracket for joint filers in 2014.
Thank goodness Yahoo seems to be working a little. When NOT working, Mike comes back off "ignore" and I must sift through all his garbage BS to keep current with the board. Ed
Interesting "Fool" article on FCX. It seems: "Freeport-McMoRan is increasingly interested in developing its Gulf of Mexico business, even at the expense of its copper assets." It appears FCX knows the GOM is the place to be.. Maybe they might need to contact some old rusty rigs or maybe.......Ed
