re: Defensive Line Depth Seems like the biggest concern for this season - austiger
Linebackers are going to be great. Back 7 fantastic. 85 scholarships means you have to avoid injuries at ONE position... this year it's DL....

re: Best Vanguard funds for an investing novice - austiger
@bayoudude send them a check, have it all go into money market then invest in whatever you want or set up automatic transactions/exchanges to put $ in the market over time if you'd like. you can even do the same w/ withdrawals. the options are many and very straightforward. put it on auto-p...

re: Best Vanguard funds for an investing novice - austiger
I think the answer really depends on how complicated you want to get. I have gone around in circles on this @ Vanguard & have settled on the following. Start w/ Total Stock Market and Total International Stock Market. They're great, low cost ways to get your portfolio started. You really can't go...

re: Let's talk about BP - austiger
The BP bet is that they won't pay out nearly as much in settlements as they expect. It's a house bet... a bet on our government ultimately being a corporatocracy. Worth a few sheckles in my humble opinion. austiger...

re: Swinging by to say congrats to State - austiger
I'd slow that roll a bit Duckie. That porous Tiger front 7 is going to give up a historical amount of points and yards to anyone who commits to the run. Big win for State, but I'll believe in them when I see Dak defeat a competent front 7. From my vantage point, the Tigers got rolled by the...

remember Iowa's 2 TDs - austiger
One was from a pick taken to the 1 yd line The other was a 4 yd drive after a long kickoff return No sustained drives of any significance if those things don't happen, we win 21-0 or more and they don't score. and that was with AWFUL QB play....

re: Thinking about quitting stock picking - austiger
I have more or less quit -- the logic being that I suck at it. My returns are lower than playing the market. It's the vanguard chronic indexing solution. I've slowly converted half my portfolio to this. I'll probably keep some of my best dividend yielding stocks and sell the remainder, dollar cos...

re: Brief Wisco Breakdown - austiger
I''m sorry, but no rational LSU fan can confidently tell you that we can stop a tough running game. Last year's d-line and linebackers sucked out loud. We lost two starting interior linemen -- both overrated IMO -- and have a lot of questions still up the middle. Hell, Alabama ran the ball up...

re: what are you guys looking to buy during this little dip - austiger
There is nothing wrong with a yield strategy. Bonds don't have a lot of room to run. There is a large & growing community of older investors seeking yield. There are certainly stocks among the div yielders that are overvalued right now, but if you're investing on even a 10 year horizon, those ...
