re: Anybody know anything about construction contract laws? I have a situation - LSUTOM07
Hard to say without seeing the contract.. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that nothing stops you from breaking the contract. You will likely owe them for any work already performed and any material that may have been procured for your job. Don't offer this up, but if this is the case, make sur...

For those who fall into this category, do you use a backdoor Roth? Any tips or suggestions? Also, do you have any other tips on how you minimize your tax bur...

Just stating the obvious. From what I've read, there seems to be some good hunting out here. Not sure how to get started finding a place. Someone else has to have gone through the same thing on here.. ...

Northern California Hunting - LSUTOM07
Just moved to the Bay Area and I have see a lot of ducks and a few turkeys since I've moved to the Bay Area. Do any of you happen to live in the area, and have any leads on places to hunt duck or turkeys? I don't know a soul out here, and there aren't many people that share similar interests. ...

re: Cost of living - Oakland, Ca vs BR - LSUTOM07
I had a similar decision to make about 1 month ago. The wife and I decided it was worth the risk for the potential career growth opportunities on the west coast. We will be just above the base range you provided, and living in the south bay. Our base pay also increased by exactly 40%, but we were in...

re: Selling Covered Calls - LSUTOM07
[quote]Sell covered calls at a strike slightly high than your sell price[/quote] In this scenario, if I hit my sell price before contract expiration, I would have to hold until contract expiration, correct? Why wouldn't I sell a covered call just below my sell price? Some premiums going out as fa...

Selling Covered Calls - LSUTOM07
I have a stock in mind that I plan to sell if it increases another 3-4%. I am considering selling June2017 covered calls with a strike price equal to the stock price that I am looking to sell at. My goal is to maximize my premium on a stock that I already plan to sell. What am I missing here? ...

Is it time to take some gains? - LSUTOM07
The market has been on fire the last two days. Are you taking gains, buying more, staying in cash? Personally, I'm getting nervous with the quick move up. I'm considering reducing my position in financials and airlines. ...

re: Entry level jobs with a MBA but little job experience - LSUTOM07
To put it bluntly.. Decide what you want to do and go get it. You can't be this passive in today's job market with an MBA. Develop one hell of a resume and a great elevator pitch and put yourself out there. Networking events, career fairs, applying online. You would be surprised what doors you can o...
