I doubt a radical " bomb thrower" like Bernie Sanders will accept the will of the voters. There are two probable messy conventions this year.
I are no issue with anyone,s trading claims or programs as long as they don't use my Capital. Everyone has something valuable to offer on occasion .I added a little VRX and TZA this morning. Currently holding XLE,MMP, TZA, VRX, RSOC and over 70% cash. January Calls sold on XLE and MMP. Having a good time at the beach while realtors try to sell my house. Best of luck to all.
Paul, people are no more or less kind now than they ever were. The internet does present a platform that allows base expressions that most would not use in face to face contact with people they know.
Ockie, while showering with Janet this morning she dropped her soap and expressed concern about the rate of my junk rising . Not sure if her expression was market related :)
Bigbear, Best recognize defeat without agonizing over it and enjoy the life that's left to us. Bolshevik forces control a major political party. The Dim forces will win elections often enough to chip away at societies foundation and replace it with a socialist crutch. Citizen voters get used to the crutch and the opposing party can't or want fix it for the thought of losing votes. If Obama had been more inclusive in putting this program through more of it would stand ,but most are likely to be swept away. After realizing my agonizing was not doing any raging but making me ill, I now vote on Election Day and otherwise give it little thought for worry .
Will be talk endlessly about what she might say? Or what she might mean about the things she might say? Probably. Do you give a damn ? If the market swings big before or after her speech it might be a good time to buy and or sell something unless of course it isn't :)
Trump does like to brag a bit but he is a person who has been successful in working with people of all stripes in his various projects. IMO handouts to the poor do them no good. Being poor needs to be painful so they will do what is needed to pull themselves up and become productive members of society . The ever generous Bill and Hillary only donate to one charity, The Clinton Foundation that serves mainly to benefit the Clintons at the taxpayers expense . I do wish the IRS would objectively look at the Clinton Foundation.
Every time Dim supporters or illegals start a fight or riot or the news media shows it leanings Trump picks up votes. By the way what would happen to a American that went to Mexico and tried to get a job or get involved with politics? Likely to "disappear " for sure a nasty prison .
I,m looking for a new house and started paying attention to area real estate values. I have noticed many home repositions in my neighborhood , two on my street and six on the feeder street. Most of these are houses bought cheap in short sales and repo but are on the market again . A near neighbor was a cute Chinese girl from near Hong Kong. He said $125k for a house in extremely poor repairs and worked tirelessly fixing it up and now lost it and gone. Since I only started paying attention resently not sure if a trend is developing.
The riotous crowd sounds like Bernie Sanders in his bomb and brick throwing youth. Perhaps Obama will dispatch Bill Ayers to lead them to greater Marxist glory.
Bayman, I,m from Copper Hill,Va about 25 minutes from the VT campus. I might rather pay the 15% Capital Gain and enjoy life rather than live on the place two years. As I remember it's cold in the Winter and hot in the Summer. Some people set up LLC and other straw entities but I prefer to pay what is due and not be looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life. Best of luck to you in Hokie country.
Rich, I learned early on not to trust StealingAlpoo or any financial media outlet. They are either idiots or trying to move inventory or both. Better off starting early and learning the lessons from your experience. I condider MAIN a better BDC than average and if someone wants to sell there shares at a discount I gladly take a few. Best of luck to you.
