re: TCL 6-Series 2018 - lynxcat on 3/19/18 at 9:57 pm
I'm torn between the MU8000 65 inch for ~$1,000 right now versus waiting for the TCL 6 Series 65 inch ($800?). What's this board's thoughts? I've been tracking deals on slickdeals for about the past month. Also considering a Sony 900E 65 inch if I can find a hot price...lately the best I saw ...

re: Another LBO goes bankrupt - iHeartMedia - lynxcat on 3/16/18 at 9:32 am
Agree completely. Those golden parachute clauses are a great way to sail into the sunset. Unless the combined companies have terrific FCF, I'm not in favor of the LBO method. Straddling a new firm with billions of debt is not a great wedding present. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: In this age of smartphones, do people even remember phone numbers anymore? - lynxcat on 3/13/18 at 12:38 pm
I know maybe 5. I actually was just joking about this with my mom because she is one of the few numbers I can say from memory. Only reason I know it is because I needed to memorize it before cell phones existed. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: What are some hard skills younwish you had learned for your career? - lynxcat on 3/11/18 at 3:59 pm
The skills needed change so much after the first ~7 years professionally. Kickass Excel and PowerPoint skills are very valuable at the early stage but those skills will quickly lose relevance for me. My ability to instruct my directs on how to use them more effectively will be the extent of how ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: College choices for finance - lynxcat on 3/9/18 at 3:40 pm
Yes, I went to Rhodes. Completely agree that they are powerful programs for someone driven to pursue them. The social pressure is likely the biggest barrier to overcome. I’m unfamiliar with the Columbia program mentioned in this thread but that’s an elite opportunity for the right person. Every...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: College choices for finance - lynxcat on 3/9/18 at 2:34 pm
Honestly, very few students actually take advantage of those programs. We had one with WashU for Biomedical Engineering and I don’t know anyone in my class that did it. It’s a bit awkward because you graduate from the first school in 3 years typically which is when you have really strong relatio...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: College choices for finance - lynxcat on 3/9/18 at 1:54 pm
UGA vs LSU is not going to open doors that would otherwise be closed unless it’s something specific in Atlanta. It he wasn’t looking at UVA, for example, then I would say he should go there. The comparison schools just aren’t that much better than LSU if money is a consideration. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: College choices for finance - lynxcat on 3/9/18 at 12:06 pm

re: College choices for finance - lynxcat on 3/9/18 at 7:59 am
Those alternatives aren’t good enough or different enough experiences from LSU to justify that cost difference. If he wants to live in Dallas, then what would it cost to go to SMU? ETA: Damn autocorrect :lol:...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
