re: Year to date returns are in. - CharleyLake
It is not my goal either. I just referenced it as a popular benchmark. Would you agree that investing isn't about beating others at their game? It's about controlling yourself at your game. ...

re: Year to date returns are in. - CharleyLake
I could not agree more with you. I have been at this for a while and payroll deductions (dollar cost averaging) has proven itself. For the long term horizon one of the IRAs initially started as non-working spousal IRA which had a maximum annual investment of $250. My wife has simply automatically...

re: Craps: An expensive habit - CharleyLake
Certainly cannot disagree with that concept. Never a bad idea to put some chips in your pocket if you get ahead. Dice players tend to leave their winning bets up too long as some people keep their winning stocks when they are so high that they would not purchase them at those prices. Taking a profi...

re: Craps: An expensive habit - CharleyLake
That is wonderful. I have never met anyone with those qualifications that always walked away with that kind of profit. What is his bankroll? (buy-in money) What is his average bet? What type of bets does he make? Does he hedge bets? i.e.Any craps with a pass line bet) Does he have a loss lim...

re: Craps: An expensive habit - CharleyLake
I cannot speak to being like "herorin" but do agree with your other three points. My visit to Coushatta last week: Typically I saw several players exit the table after making too many place bets when three shooters went point seven. I started playing the DON'Ts until the table resumed the nor...

re: Is there ANYTHING LSU could show you tonight... - CharleyLake
Sure. As mentioned meaningful playing time for Brennan would be a priority and no injuries for anyone. Additionally I would like to see TDs for Washington and Ducre and a few reps for the senior walk-ons....

re: Rice beat LSU in 1961 or 1962/ - CharleyLake
I happened to be in Houston at the time and was surprised to see that there were more LSU fans in the stadium. I also recall that the Owls had a decent field goal kicker who was a starting offensive lineman. The Tiger fell a long way since that Carlos Carson game. ...

Quite the opposite. I have only upgraded my basic stupidity to the disability level. Perhaps my comments will benefit someone. My search for relevance pushes on I suppose. ...

re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake
Per my post of 11-06-18. I made the redistribution yesterday. On 10-24-18 I transferred the balance of my stable value fund to the S & P index fund. The amount of this transfer was 24.6% of my portfolio. I returned this amount and its gain to the S & P yesterday at the market's close. 58.44 S & P po...

re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake
Same here. I moved the balance stable value fund to the S & P index option at a decent discount. When the market returns to its highs I will simply redistribute. On the other hand three of four IRA's are in the bucket. Nothing I can do beyond waiting. ...

re: What is the singular most important factor to beating Bama? - CharleyLake
The collective wisdom of the Rant says "red zone offense." It is reassuring that no one thinks that coaching decisions as opposed to execution could be the single key to winning. ...
