[quote]Commission costs are also negligible as you are jumping in an out of a the market maybe a couple of times a year. $7.99, or whatever you pay per trade with your broker, would matter very little in the long run, as was discussed earlier in the thread.

re: Timing the market - RedStickBR
Are you using total returns? Because the power of compounded, reinvested dividends needs to be accounted for in the buy and hold scenario. You also need to account for commission costs and the massive short-term capital gains taxes over the time period. Finally, too much of your gains are ...

Sorry to hear this. He was a colorful poster, and his passion for LSU was never questioned.

re: Holder says no AG has been treated as badly as he has - RedStickBR
Let's just strip out the politics here and boil this down to complete pragmatism, and I'm referencing both Holder and Obama: Why on earth would we want to elect "leaders" who view themselves as beyond reproach given the color of their skin? How will that EVER yield the best outcome, unless sa...

re: Short and sweet perspective on the labor market - RedStickBR
Part of me agrees with you. On the one hand, if there have been no structural changes to the economy, we should be able to fill that slack eventually as the economy continues to heal. In other words, the growth trajectory should remain the same, despite the fact the economy will tend to oscillate...

re: Lawyer question - RedStickBR
After circling back with him, it appears the issues lie with the insurance company. He initially said he was being "billed," but by that I believe he means claims were being processed against his policy. From what you guys have said, it sounds like he needs to get more aggressive with the insuran...

Short and sweet perspective on the labor market - RedStickBR
We're back to where we were before the recession, but still some 5.9M jobs short of where we would be had the recession not occurred. While it may be unreasonable to assume we will get back to that prior growth trajectory, given we did have a recession, we still have a lot of making up to do to get ...

I only post this here because I'm still slightly scared of the OT. I have a friend who keeps receiving bills from United Healthcare for someone who has the same first name as his child, but who is not his child. Apparently, the company has his child confused for someone else. And apparently, this...
