re: Do I need to re-season my Cast Iron Skillet? - PlanoPrivateer on 8/31/15 at 1:26 pm
I have two tips. One, I started making my roux in my skillet. This seems to help keep in seasoned. Two, I find it best to clean the skillet as soon as I remove the food while the skillet is still hot or warm. It cleans up easier this way. I usually just need water and a cloth rag. I then put i...

re: Vanguard Fund Allocation advice - PlanoPrivateer on 7/27/15 at 7:01 pm
The 3 funds that you listed you have practically zero international exposure. Sure many of the companies in them do business internationally. If you want some international check out VWIGX. Vanguard has others but I like this one. Full disclosure, I don't own any at this time. I do own some indi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Vanguard Fund Allocation advice - PlanoPrivateer on 7/27/15 at 12:21 pm
The Total Stock Market Fund and the Index 500 Fund are probably 90% the same. Both have the same 10 stocks as their top holdings. The top 10 represent 14% of the VTSAX and 18% of the VFIAX total holdings. I don't know for sure but I would guess that the approximately 500 stocks in the Index 500 m...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Blue Buffalo IPO - PlanoPrivateer on 7/17/15 at 11:44 pm
Blue Buffalo is a fast growing company. That being said one of the leading companies in this industry is going after them for false advertising. I don't know the details but I believe is has to do with Blue Buffalo's claims about the ingredients in some of their foods. I am hazy on this so please...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
