re: Yellen let the cat out of the bag - Jag_Warrior
[quote]They do expect inflation and do expect to have to raise interest rates sooner rather than later. [/quote] That’s fine. And it would be worth noting if the statement came from J. Powell. But Yellen has little to do with fiscal policy and nothing to do with monetary policy. ...

re: What formula do you use to justify how much car you can afford? - Jag_Warrior
[quote]Also, invest in your health. Work out. Eat right. Spend money on experiences, not things[/quote] While I agree with that last part, understand that some of us use cars as part of our life experiences. My free fun time revolves around track time at VIR and Summit Point. But those experience...

re: I own a truck, should I buy a commuter car? - Jag_Warrior
[quote]Buy a sports car to go with the truck..[/quote] I kinda did that backwards... and then some. Bought a truck to go with the sports car, then bought a race car so the truck would have something to pull and not feel under appreciated. :lol: When I write my book, The Top 10 Ways to Burn Up ...

re: Wingstop took a big dive this morning - Jag_Warrior
[quote]It depends on the location.[/quote] Right. It’s all about location and management. Same with McD’s and other fast/casual restaurants, especially with the shortage in wait staff and cooks these days. I’m not currently long Wingstop, but it has been on my watchlist for awhile. ...

re: what do you consider a properly sized position? - Jag_Warrior
[quote]Generally, I buy things in $5,000 increments, with $5,000 or $10,000 being the norm. [/quote] Not trying to give you a hard time… I’m just curious as to why?

re: what do you consider a properly sized position? - Jag_Warrior
You’re talking about an investment, not a trading position? For an investment position, I try to keep the total position to no more than 10% of my total account. So when it gains (or other positions lose), I have to factor that in. For trading, I try to keep the total ticker position (long equities ...

re: Age at which you really dial back your in investments in equities and equity funds? - Jag_Warrior
[quote]Don't go by age. Go by time horizon (when you're going to be using the funds). If you're 90 and want to leave your portfolio to your grandchildren, invest like you're 40. If you're 50 and want to retire at 55, invest like you're 60.[/quote] This. Time horizon and/or life situat...

[quote]I'm doing the same with PLTR[/quote] I’m also holding a smallish position in PLTR in my investment account. Because it’s a long term hold, I seldom look at it - that makes a person tempted to act. :lol: All I’ve been doing is selling some covered calls and sometimes selling strangles aroun...

re: Strategies for Bear or reversal market - Jag_Warrior
[quote]I'm pretty new to investing... I know I can't predict the market but do any of y'all do puts or short selling during this time?[/quote] Stay FAR away from hedging with derivatives and short selling unless you are a VERY experienced trader. For the most part, these strategies are for tra...
