    Quoted from scarybeard:

    I've gone 75% cash until we get a pull back. With the market as overpriced as it is, and the tax reform stuff not a sure thing, I'd rather miss out on a minor bump up than be on board for a big drop

    I've move around 75% to cash as well. I'm extremely long in the market 30 years or so. I'll let %25 of my money grow. The market will correct on the next 3 years then I'll slowly drop my money back in.

    I did buy Verizon yesterday after the 4% drop. I'm long on VZ.

    Awesome site. Thanks for sharing.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    What is the exit strategy from 401k for someone hoping to stop working before 50yo?

    Do you have a roth IRA? You may want to start one, if not. As far as hitting 50, what does your day look like when you hit 50? What does your life look like? Answer those questions on a sheet of paper. That'll help you figure out your finances. Also, will you be working part time? Volunteering more? Madison will provide you endless possible part time gigs.

    Quoted from uptownsinclair:

    If the broker continues to lose her money she can fire him. If you lose her money, she has to stay married to you

    Exactly! Or she'll never forgive you and divorce your ass which will be EXTREMELY costly. Let her do her. It sounds like you'll be fine either way if you've been saving for awhile.

    Quoted from Trekkie1978:

    Trades I made last week

    How do I learn to do what you are doing? Book, YouTube, podcast suggestions? I have a small satchel of money to be gambled and I want to paper trade in the meantime as I build up my funds.

    Bought 1,000 shares of Starbucks at $82.55

    Quoted from investingdad:

    This is the first trading day of the month, so I bought the usual (for us) monthly amount.

    Quoted from ovfdfireman:

    if the market is down tomorrow 1000 points, I know I can buy at a 1000 point discount

    Buy the best companies & never sell! Well maybe when you die but even then, never sell!

    Quoted from Zablon:

    I work too hard for my money to let someone elses emotions wipe it out in a minute.

    But then where is your money? In a saving account? That's like saying I work too hard for my money to grow so I'll leave it in my sock drawer. You only lose if you pick a terrible company and they go under or if you sell your stock. Review post #1515 & #1532

    Quoted from Zablon:

    If you get sick you won't know, and the likelihood you could give it to your sick grandma is high (just an example)

    Objection, Speculation. You're assuming A) Trekkie catches the Corona Virus, B) has no symptoms whatsoever, C) has a Granny who's alive, D) sees Granny and infects her.

    All HIGHLY unlikely. Granny's more likely to catch the flu from the casino or venereal disease from shacking up at the old folks home.

    Back to STOCKS please. Is big oil really dead? Is XOM toast because of their debt load?

    #1669 4 months ago
    Quoted from Richthofen:

    if one of the two presidential candidates or another world leader succumbs to the virus

    I was worried about the same. Supposedly Ted Cruz has come into contact with someone who tested positive. If several members of Congress or the president or candidates would come down with it, I think there would be mass panic.

    #1692 4 months ago
    Quoted from Zablon:

    Go do some actual research

    Trekkie: claims media is fake, lists media as research resource.

    Zablon: claims media is NOT fake, discredits same media as fake.

    God I love this thread. What are some really big brands names of Australian companies that I could dump some cash into?

    #1699 4 months ago
    Quoted from PinHigh1:

    I bought XOM and GE today. What did you buy? Thanks for letting me share

    BAC - bank of America. I'll buy some VZ - Verizon soon and lock in that divy

    Quoted from Jimmyhonda:

    I feel for the folks that were looking to retire right now and their 401k’s have been hammered

    Yes. I'm of the opinion that one needs to have three years worth of expenses in cash. If the market returns 4% or more, you pull that out. If not you use cash. For example, last year there was a period where the market was up 20%. If you live off of 4% in retirement, that's 5 years worth of income without touching principle.

    #1834 3 months ago

    Yeesh, President just announced travel ban to/from Europe, excluding UK.

    #1842 3 months ago
    Quoted from noob-a-tron:

    Australia down over 5% today so far

    But what should I buy from Australia? What is your largest, best run, cash in the bank, company?

    #1847 3 months ago
    Quoted from DBLM:

    NBA just suspended the season

    oh FUCK! ESPN just put it up. Suspend the season. WTF!

    #1886 3 months ago

    Any thoughts on SLB or HAL? SLB for $12 & HAL for $7. Yeesh! I like SLB a little better because of HAL's debt load. I don't know if HAL will make it long term. On the fence

    Quoted from Zablon:

    Honestly at this point, who is buying?


    Disney, Bank of America, and whatever else is good. I'm not buying too much but a few hundred$$$$ worth a week. Let em all drop. I've got 40 years left in the market.

    Buy and never sell!

    #2428 3 months ago
    Quoted from boscokid:

    . Cruise Lines with no cruises are worth zero , Airlines with no passengers are worth zero, restaurants with no patrons

    Cruise ships can go straight to hell! Don't care of they go under.

    The airlines will get a bailout package. Many of the restaurant owners I talked to won't make it two months shutdown. I think alot of restaurants will go under. Support your local Mom and Pop places!

    #2446 3 months ago
    Quoted from Rondogg:

    That took two years to reach bottom

    I'm not really looking for bottom. I'm looking to buy quality brand named companies. If someone was paying $140 for Disney three weeks ago, I buy it for 87$ then $64 then $32. It's a win win win for me. Nothing has really changed. Disney will be fine.

    Also I have cash in my 401k, & IRA. I'll buy S&P and individual brands. Then two years from now I'll have cash cash to invest in my fun account. I'll buy more of the same.

    That's my plan and I'm dumb enough to stick to it.

    #2447 3 months ago
    Quoted from cottonm4:

    . What is that called? Is it called insider trading?

    Question, did they ever change the law to stop this? Up until, I believe a few years ago this was totally legal and abused by alot of Congress.

    They should lose their jobs. The intelligence committee & DOJ should be up their ass. Not to mention the SEC

    #2523 3 months ago
    Quoted from Methos:

    inflation is staring us in the face with all this $ being pumped in

    - The $$$ is king right now, so I don't see inflation being a problem

    Quoted from Methos:

    the national debt is going up faster

    - this could be a problem if and when gdp sinks. Last year around this time we could borrow indefinitely with our GDP. Times have changed obviously

    Quoted from Methos:

    Any signs of hope are far and few between.

    - It will be interesting to see in two weeks time. Realistically they need to get out a rapid test to the masses. This and only this will likely cut down the virus & infection rates drastically. Right now no one knows if they have it and are not symptomatic.

    I'm curious to see how a months shutdown affects restaurants. A lot of small businesses I spoke with don't have unlimited funds to pay their bills. Replacing the gig/service economy is going to be challeging.

    #2693 3 months ago
    Quoted from boscokid:

    Just talking out my ass here as I have no idea. If the Govt wants to stabilize the markets wouldn't it be a good idea to cut or eliminate long term capital gains?

    Say any money put into the market between April 1 and June 30th and held 10y+ is exempt from gains tax. Seems like that would greatly incentivize Buy & Hold investors and take some of the shine off this trend of buying and flipping. Obviously another benefit would be it wouldn't cost anything in the short term only missed tax revenue 10 years from now.

    Except they don't want you to invest. They want you to consume! Consume, consume, consume!

    #2729 3 months ago
    Quoted from DBLM:

    God, this thread is so much civil than some of the other threads here. I asked the mods in the Covid thread to voluntarily eject me from that thread so that I would not fall into that cesspool of a thread. Thanks to everybody for keeping this one so much nicer.

    Stick with the cash money! There are a ton of people with really bad takes in that covid thread. Bought a little more BAC & F & T today. Gunna buy some IBM later after a drop. Should have bought DIS at $88. FML

    #2939 3 months ago

    So what does the stock market look like when 250,000, 500,000 or 1Mil people in the US have covid 19?

    #3150 3 months ago
    Quoted from taylor34:

    here's still a pretty significant chance we don't have this under control by the time school starts.

    You might be on the sidelines for a while. The most likely scenario is what you described above. We get things under control for the summer months, then explosion again with the flu season. A double dip if you were. That's when the real unemployment begins.

    Quoted from DCFAN:

    Some of the advantages to the retailer are that the customer is more likely to spend more

    And large retailers are credit card companies now. So you spend more & they make money off of the interest. Always ask for cash discount at smaller businesses.

    Quoted from barakandl:

    try paying cash (write a check entire balance) at a car dealership. they will hate your guts and give you the run-a-round. "What kind of monthly payment do you want to make" ugh.... none. "WHAT! f- you, list price is best we can do

    Lol. You're doing it wrong! First step, research car you want and find dealer with car. Second, have sales person show you around for like an hour, test drive some other cars. Third, arrive at car you want but make sales bro think it's his idea. Inception type shit. Waste more time. Fourth step, negotiate what's the price? Oh you gotta talk to your manager, fine. Fifth step, this is the best you can do? Brah, I'm outta here. Sixth step, what's the price if I finance thru you? Seventh step, that's way too much still, my wife will kill me. Eighth step, close the deal. You've been at the dealership for three hours at this point. You ask for cash price and if a payment plan is cheaper or gets you more perks, you do that for two months and then pay it off. Boom Tomahawks guide to buy a car.

    Or you buy a car online and never talk to a soul.
