re: Best use out of Chase Sapphire Card - homeskillet on 8/26/13 at 4:57 pm
I have the Chase Sapphire and have used points for a car rental. I have points saved for a future vacation.

if you do online purchases from Home Depot or Lowes, or if you have the time to start doing some, you can always get 5%, sometimes 10% cashback on your Discover. When I have a big project I am planning, or when I buy a new tool that is 100 or more, I order online and do in-store pick up. You have ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]True story. Several years ago I bought 300 shares of Apple at $15/share. Gradually over 6 months it climbed to $22 or 23 a share. One day it dropped a coouple of points, and worried that I might lose my profit, I called in a stop loss at $20/share. Next day it dropped to $19 and a fraction fo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Stop Loss/Limit Orders - homeskillet on 7/30/13 at 10:54 am
So how do you determine the right percentage? Is a higher or lower percentage appropriate based on your investing strategy or the volatility? Or is it more closely related to your risk tolerance? ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

We have 529 plans for each kid (2). They will probably fund a year of college at Alabama or another state school. Our deal to them is if they earn a scholarship, they go where they earned it. If not, it is two years at a community college, living at home, then two more locally at a four year college...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Apple is approaching $400....would you buy it before earnings? - homeskillet on 4/17/13 at 11:48 am
So do you think poor earnings are already priced in? I have been thinking about taking the little I am still up and moving over to vanguard funds. I don't think I will do any better as an individual investor, probably worst honestly. Felt like a genius when it was way up, but there is that realit...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
