re: The SEC has charged Houston resident with insider trading by spying on wife's Zoom calls - Decisions
[quote]he grew a conscience and confessed to her, who reported it to BP, who then canned her arse [/quote] Is this not a microcosm of current gender relations? A woman who is more loyal to a company that gives zero shits about her than she is to her husband. What a fool....

re: If buying now .. What 10 Ai stocks will people wish they had bought 10 yrs from today - Decisions
[quote]AI will be built into most products. Hell, Deere is arguably using AI and automation more than any other company, but dk they count?[/quote] Even with AI on every tractor Deere wouldn’t qualify as an AI company in my book. Their base is still agriculture and its facilitation, not the AI. ...

re: If buying now .. What 10 Ai stocks will people wish they had bought 10 yrs from today - Decisions
I will be surprised if there are ten true ai companies/stocks which are of significant value in ten years. Tech tends to be a “winner-takes-most” sort of market. You’ll have other industries adopt a bit of it to build efficiencies, but it won’t be the centerpiece. If I were a betting man, thoug...

re: Regional banks - Decisions
My biggest evaluating factor would be seeing how much they have tied up in CRE, especially in certain vulnerable cities. That’s probably the most toxic asset in the market atm. ETA: I just looked and CRE is [b]exactly[/b] why NYCB is cratering atm. They have CRE holdings as a proportion of thei...

[quote]Joe needs to stay healthy. As of now he is made of glass.[/quote] Have you seen how many sacks and hits he’s taken? No one can stand up to that for long. If they don’t get it down soon he’s going to be done at a young age just like Luck....

re: Banks’ Retail Footprints Getting Smaller - Decisions
[quote]I find “meeting with a banker” to have no value.[/quote] That’s because the major branches with officers aren’t for your every day depositors. They’re for people running real, complex businesses with large amounts of borrowed capital usage who need to have at least some access to meet and...

re: If the Fed were dissolved tomorrow - Decisions
[quote]Just a more stable currency and more volatile economy? Or something dramatically different?[/quote] The Fed is only part of the currency problem. Congress’ spending habits is the other part. You really need both reined in. Also, calling the short to mid-term economy “volatile” if it wer...

As the Tide Rolls Out: All Those Who Have Left - Decisions
I believe that this historic moment we are living in needs to be preserved for all to appreciate later. To this end I decided to compile a list of all those fleeing the S.S. Alabama as she goes under. Please feel free to post names I might have missed so that the list may be updated or persona...

re: The DowJones Industrial Average AND the S&P500 Index both closed at record highs today - Decisions
Conjoined those graphs give an idea of wage inflation from the start of COVID through 2022. Naturally the data hasn’t all been compiled and made public for 2023, but it gives an idea as to what wages have done in the time period we were discussing for the market growth and overall inflation. [qu...

[quote]the broad market is also up considerably since 2021 - RSP is the equal weight S&P 500 and it’s up 28% over the same 3 years. [/quote] It certainly is. What do you think fueled that surge? Productivity and efficiency increases? Expanding, new markets? Or currency debasement? [quote]I...

re: The DowJones Industrial Average AND the S&P500 Index both closed at record highs today - Decisions
[quote]Let’s ignore CPI and look at something that is very public and very easy to check - gasoline. The S&P 500 has outpaced the price of gasoline by 6% in the last 3 years. [/quote] That’s fair. A solid point. What about food, rent, and vehicles? I would say they’ve all at least kept pace wi...

[quote]The other poster already noted that the SP500 outpaced CPI over the same time period.[/quote] To be fair, we all know the official CPI is a lie and hard assets (especially those which generate income) have gone up at LEAST 35%. I’m not against celebrating the small victories, though. T...
