    Cards - Saints GAME CANCELLED

    A plane that size, I would have thought so. You can't just lay claim to whatever airspace you want. But I don't really know.

    Cards - Saints GAME CANCELLED

    The plane actually turned around mid-flight? I didn't think you could do that. Aren't there a whole bunch of protocols about who can be along which routes when, and the timing of arrivals, and all of that?

    Retirement Planning Thread

    I agree. Usually Fool resists presenting any real information, but they managed to divulge some solid advice this time. By the way, for those of you familiar with the Rule of 72, here's a cool nuance: An investment growing by 8.5% annually will double in 8.5 years.

    Trevor Bauer Serious Accusations

    Ah, I did not realize that. Makes sense. I would say "good to know," except that that information will never be directly relevant to me. I haven't seen the text messages themselves.

    HELOC

    AMC is absolutely a meme stock. It's pointless to claim otherwise. You may believe that you are holding it for non-meme reasons, but it's still on everyone's short list of most prominent meme stocks. Yes, there will probably be another round or two of the short squeeze game, but that's...

    HELOC

    I think a lot of people hold meme stocks for the entertainment value, and not really as investments. You're down $30k over the past two months. That sounds like a lot, but if you didn't have a clear idea of what you'd have wanted to do with that money, it's not a big loss. The "enjoy the...

    The Market 2021

    A tiny bit. If I'm choosing between two mutual funds that have vaguely similar investment profiles, I'll probably opt for the one that's stronger on ESG. An example would be PRBLX, which Morningstar describes this way: "The managers employ a firmwide philosophy and approach. They exclude...

    HELOC

    I wouldn't do it at 5%. Under Biden, I think it's reasonably likely that capital gains taxes will go up, which tilts the numbers toward spending your savings (whose growth would be taxed) rather than adding more debt. If you're prepared to make interest-only payments to the tune of $2000 a...

    The Market 2021

    As amazed as I am to be saying this, you do not seem to have answered my question. How much did you make these past two days?

    That's cool, I appreciate that. So how much did you make these past two days? Those swings must have presented some great profit opportunities for those who saw them coming.

    Russell 2000 up 3.3% today. It sure feels like the big-money guys are jerking us around.

    The Market 2021

    My guess is that investors are worried about inflation and are interpreting the most recent "not that bad" numbers as spin. One of my alternative energy ETFs is down 12% in a week. The covid resurgence and the problems in/with China are taking their toll also.
