re: Year to date returns are in. - CharleyLake on 1/20/19 at 9:46 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Year to date returns are in. - CharleyLake on 1/20/19 at 8:18 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Year to date returns are in. - CharleyLake on 1/20/19 at 6:41 am
All of my stock market investments were in the bucket for 2018 by under performing the S & P Index benchmark of -4.38%. 401K plan -6.16% 4 IRAs -11.4% I have a non tax deferred Dodge & Cox Mutual Fund that was down 7.08%. I hope that you all did better. January returns are off to a g...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (8)
re: Per Aranda: Stingley was best corner in bowl practice - CharleyLake on 12/29/18 at 5:13 pm
Agree. I immediately thought of your first five arguments. Certainly not ready to hand anyone the 2019 position the position at this time. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Craps: An expensive habit - CharleyLake on 12/16/18 at 3:22 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Craps: An expensive habit - CharleyLake on 12/16/18 at 1:08 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Craps: An expensive habit - CharleyLake on 12/16/18 at 7:34 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Is there ANYTHING LSU could show you tonight... - CharleyLake on 11/17/18 at 11:21 am
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....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Rice beat LSU in 1961 or 1962/ - CharleyLake on 11/13/18 at 6:51 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake on 11/8/18 at 8:26 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake on 11/8/18 at 7:29 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anyone else’s 401k being rocked? - CharleyLake on 11/6/18 at 7:17 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What is the singular most important factor to beating Bama? - CharleyLake on 10/25/18 at 5:50 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
