re: Anyone trade these LEAP calls before? - Iowa Golfer
Yes, to answer your question. It allows a long or short position for less capital outlay in its simplest form, and it allows a loss certain in each case. The loss certain is obviously much less than either buying, or short selling the underlying security, or commodity. It allows a whole bunch of...

re: Nate Silver Out with State by State Projections, HRC sweeps swing states - Iowa Golfer
Paid poll. Won't be released. If you look here: http://www.p2016.org/trump/trumporg.html I can tell you the people running the Iowa portion aren't really these people. Eric Branstad is running it. I know him, and his dad through him. So all you're going to get is some hints, which I've alr...

re: Elon Musk Says Tesla Will Be $1 Trillion Dollars Soon - Iowa Golfer
Inputs and infrastructure. All the ones you mentioned above still need silver until a replacement is found. They all need infrastructure. What I've been doing some of is buying property (bare land) where there is a sudden infrastructure explosion. I know a guy that lays fiber optic cable...

re: Nate Silver Out with State by State Projections, HRC sweeps swing states - Iowa Golfer
[quote]While I think this is an accurate reflection on the current race, given the current data, Silver himself would caution against extrapolation given the time before the election. In addition, the state-level polling just really just getting started so it's still somewhat minimal at this time. T...

re: Elon Musk Says Tesla Will Be $1 Trillion Dollars Soon - Iowa Golfer
I listened to the clip. I'm neither a bull, nor a bear for the record. I'm like the Italian guy in the book Catch 22, I'm whatever I need to be in order to attempt to be on the correct side. Having said this, Peter Schiff has some interesting points, but I don't follow him, or any talking heads, esp...

re: Elon Musk Says Tesla Will Be $1 Trillion Dollars Soon - Iowa Golfer
I read stuff like this, and not based on anything, I assume the market is due for a huge correction sometime soon. I could see a Clinton administration artificially pushing the valuations of publicly traded companies like this however. Unfortunately for "them", events in Great Britain placed ...

re: Donald Trump Econmic Policy Speech, Monessen Pennsylvania – 2:30 PM EST - Iowa Golfer
I'll allow it for several reasons. Mostly, Naval medics, or Corpsmen, or whatever they are (can't remember) went and took fire with us. So this was Desert Storm. Marines took fire for about a week before the ground war really started. Actually, before that. We also bailed out our "Arab" partners...

re: Donald Trump Econmic Policy Speech, Monessen Pennsylvania – 2:30 PM EST - Iowa Golfer
I'll allow it. You didn't downvote, or insult, even after I baited you. I am somewhat impressed, and a bit ashamed of my post now. I voted for John McCain, Mitt Romney, and a huge number of other imperfect candidates. They all had the best chance, albeit small, of defeating the alternative. It...

re: Hillary will be the POTUS - Iowa Golfer
It's not over. But you're right. The powerbrokers want Hillary. And some establishment people delude themselves into thinking they are "principled" by voting for Johnson. But almost to a person, Trump supporters voted for the hot pile of crap the party served us for decades. I've prepared my...

re: S&P downgrade UK's credit rating in Brexit aftermath - Iowa Golfer
It is already more expensive for GB to borrow anyway. Starting Friday, although it was inching up for a while now. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone paying even a small amount of attention. ...

re: John Oliver on Brexit referendum. - Iowa Golfer
In practice I'd have to partially disagree with this Mr. USSR. I think EU is going to do everything they can do to get GB to not invoke Article 50, and so I think they have some indirect control over GB. But I'm not disagreeing with your post, I'm just evolving it a smidge. ...

re: John Oliver on Brexit referendum. - Iowa Golfer
The reason I can't agree with 100% is that politicians egos are involved. I'd say 25-30% chance it doesn't happen is generous. FWIW, I think GB made the correct choice for a variety of reasons outside of the short term economic impact we might see. One thing we might see going forward is a d...

re: John Oliver on Brexit referendum. - Iowa Golfer
I'm not a fan of the EU. It is strange that I find myself agreeing with you about some of the uncertainty of it however. GB is going to have a lot of work with respect to legislation, agreements etc in the next two years, and there will be some fallout to their financial services industry. I don...
