re: Paying off mortgage - slackster
[quote]For those who want the freedom to not worry about maintaining specific income levels and what not, it is a life changing event to be mortgage free. Such a stress reliever.[/quote] I’m sure it is, but having the ability to pay it off and instead watching it grow faster than the debt is pret...

re: Former Employer 401K accounts. How best to handle consolidation? - slackster

re: Holding AMC Thread- Diamond hands unite - slackster
Volume has been way down lately. On one hand, doesn’t appear a ton of apes are bailing. On the other, doesn’t appear the buying is happening either. I’d say a net positive for longs. :dunno:...
