Right- if the market for is position is $60k and he is currently getting $45k and the other company is offering him $60k, he is justified telling his current company he would like to match it.
On the other hand, if he is currently getting market (in this case, $60k) and the other company is offer...

All I can say about this is that I have gotten raises that have my salary way above what it would have been if I had left for 5% raises at other companies. If you work hard and add value and your company is reasonable, it will pay off to be loyal. Now, if tehy aren't willing to promote or pay you wh...

If you leverage an offer to get a raise and don't get a raise, you pretty much have to leave. Otherwise, you would have a very complicated relationship with your employer if you stay.
If you get more money using another offer as leverage, you will 1) have communicated to management that you are o...

Personally, I don't like accounts that you can't touch. I'd just invest in an account you can use for other things and take the tax hit as the cost to have flexibility.

I got scared with that kind of run-up on nothing new and dumped at $8.45.

In my opinion, not alot of good cheap properties listed in the big LV. You're betting that in 5-6 years the appreciation will beat the 7% you are going to lose in closing costs.
You'd need a good discounted property (perhaps the incentive for the seller is that you can do a cash deal?). Then, yo...

True story- I've been trading GDP the last 2 years. I buy then sell every time it shoots up 10-15% then buy on a pullback.
One time my dollar cost average was about $12 and I sold some 6 month $15 strike calls and it gushed to $28.... it pulled back to $17 by the time they executed. Capped my ga...

Net assets of $2.5 million. I could cashflow off of real estate and stock dividends to live comfortably off of that without having to worry about anything.

The "dumb" process is the reason why the program had 180 internships lined up for my class before the program started that year, which is way more than any other IA program no matter what school you are talking about.

False. It is a brilliant way to attract more internships for students. Instead of every company fighting over the top few students, you have an internship lottery for all of the companies. That way, they might or might not get their first choice. However, they are guaranteed to get a quality student...
