re: Alright, all of you guys that are pros or tenured in this stock game help us youngsters - Ingloriousbastard
I like VOO (or a similar ETF) for people who don’t have a ton of experience. It’s an S&P 500 ETF (which means it’s essentially a stock that owns the stocks that comprise the S&P 500). It’s pretty basic and well diversified. You could always start there and then diversify a bit in the future, on...

re: So what happened there in the last 30 minutes of the market? - Ingloriousbastard
Probably uncertainty about the weekend. I’d ignore it. Just invest with a long term outlook (5+ years) and none of this matters. Right now stocks are almost assuredly a bargain vs what they will likely be in 5 years. ...

re: local dentist office has about 25 employees, they do pretty well - Ingloriousbastard
Wouldn’t necessarily go that far. Just seems like a terrible decision and potential fraud. ...

Well, if they’re trying to take grant money for a purpose that it’s not intended for, then they deserve to pay interest and get no benefit. It’s just a loan at that point. Should probably be penalized too for fraud. ...

Yes. Seriously. If he can get a loan that turns into a grant, then why even pay them less? Part of the problem and not the solution. ...

Why did their income drop if you can get a loan that turns into a grant?...

Sounds like ole baw is taking out a loan that he will have to repay, with interest. And that’s how it should be if he’s doing this!...

People aren’t looking at the big picture. Bet some might change their minds if they realized what doing nothing would do to the value of their houses. ...

re: Regarding the bill: this board has no idea what is happening in people’s lives right now - Ingloriousbastard
I agree. There is no way we can have all these mandated closings without some form of compensation. The impact to the economy would cost far more if we did nothing. ...

I keep hearing this, but virtually everything is shut down. What exactly are all these people doing?...

re: Predict how things will start to look in this timeline March 30th-May 15th - Ingloriousbastard
I’m still betting this thing peaks in the US relatively soon (like days). Hell, we may have already peaked if you exclude NYC. My guess is that many places open (slowly but intelligently) on April 6, and a ton of others will be open by April 13. Obviously, it will be on a state by state and county b...

re: UPDATED: Daily COVID-19 Stats as of 1:25 AM CST 3/28/20 - Ingloriousbastard
Good point. I’m hoping that we are currently getting close to the top. I’d also be curious to see what the numbers would look like minus NYC. I’m not asking you for that though. I really appreciate all of your work here. ...

re: UPDATED: Daily COVID-19 Stats as of 1:25 AM CST 3/28/20 - Ingloriousbastard
Once that daily new case number starts staying the same, we can probably reasonably expect to be about at the peak. One could argue that we’re almost already there (especially if you treat NYC as an outlier), but that’s yet to be seen. Hopefully the numbers stay down. ...

re: Lockdowns are coming. - Ingloriousbastard
Shelter in place (or whatever variation of the name used) is NOT nearly the same as a lockdown most people seem to be imagining. Most places are still open, and you are free to leave your house. ...

re: Looks like the vote is set at 9:30 - Ingloriousbastard
$600 is a bit much, BUT a lot in this board are ignoring the fact that many people have lost their jobs due to the government requiring that their business shut down. These people still have to pay bills and will likely have to pay out of pocket for health insurance (not cheap). The governme...
