Thanks Retired. I know what you meant in some of your other posts. It takes time and effort to contribute something useful. It takes no time at all for some loser troll to bury it.
I find myself putting less and less effort into relaying what I've learned to others because it's just not worth the aggravation sometimes. I can make money without the headache of some creep stalking me on the internet.

Being negative all the time also pushes people away from you. Which makes positive outcomes less likely. Negativity is a downward spiral, Winnie.
Exactly. There's no such thing as being "overdue" for a correction. The market doesn't correct just because it's been a while since the last one.
Corrections happen on average every 20 months, but they are not evenly spaced. For example, 25% of all corrections during the last 100 years occurred during the 1970's. Another 20% occurred during 2000-2010. The remaining 45% were spread over 80 years. And no matter when they happened, every single one of them turned out to be a great buying opportunity.
Sorry mingetoat, but there is no magical inverse relationship between borrowing costs and the stock market. Borrowing costs have been increasing since June as the 10 year went from 1.5% to 2.7%. Yet the stock market pushed through to record highs. Reality is a stubborn thing, isn't it?
Oooooooh, scary. The Fed raised rates several dozens times during the last 100 years and the Dow still managed to go from 50 to 16,000.
I believe so, but it was Combs or Weschler who bought it, not Buffett. The filings are available in the SEC's EDGAR database if you want to double check.
I still think mixing the rail and cloud would be best. It's like a business burrito. If there are two things in this world investors are willing to pay 50x earnings for, it's cloud computing and burritos.
AHAHAHAHAHA. I literally just hit "refresh" and watched as someone busily signed into and out of 4 accounts in order to give me thumbs down.
It's Valentine's day. One of us is smart, witty, and just got a massive bonus and pay raise. And the other spends his free time following around a guy who calls himself Sharkbite McNasty. Which one do you think has a better chance of getting laid tonight?
No minge-toat, I've got tiger blood in my veins and I'm whip-smart. It's a combination lesser men find intimidating.
You see, nobody wants to buy CSX these days, because railroads are considered old tech. Investors want to own something they can brag about owning at cocktail parties.
I know Carl is reading this. Carl, this is what you should do: Rename the company CloudSX, hook up a few servers in the shipping containers, put it on the rails, and BANG! You get a mobile play and a cloud play. Winning.
CSX management no longer has to worry about making the numbers every quarter. Because cloud and mobile startups aren't hot because they make money today. They're hot because they might make money... someday, maybe.
I just have to wait for someone else to deny being racist before answering your question. It's a political thread on the internet. It won't take long.
