re: Expectations for PENN - AlexLSU
I owned it at $11 and sold around $15 in search of greener pastures and assuming consumer discretionary would continue falling. Now, I own a smaller position at $24 and could run the numbers easily to see my strategy was a mistake, but instead, I’ll just stroke myself over my new 15% return ...

re: Airbnb/rental covid relief - AlexLSU
[quote]It is due to the government shutting everything down that the STRs are losing money. Not because of anything the owner did.[/quote] Sounds like the owner in these cases didn’t have any plan for 1-2 months vacancy. Who buys a second property for rental purposes (whether it’s a STR or a year...

re: Rates on investment properties - AlexLSU
I was thinking about this the other day. The real estate market will have to pull back since there will be less people employed and no wage growth for most people that keep their jobs. Obviously certain areas will be hit harder than others. Potential new home buyers should dip considerably over the ...

re: I remember - AlexLSU
This market is almost indistinguishable from crypto. Huge swings based on slivers of news and optimism/pessimism. Hard to imagine that the gains will continue in the immediate future but who knows when you’re dealing with an unprecedented situation ...

re: Plays that kept LSU 15-0 - AlexLSU
Honestly, there’s very few plays that I think we absolutely needed to make. If LSU didn’t make some of the crucial plays they made this year, I feel like we would’ve just made another crucial play after to still win the game. Especially if the ball was in Burrow’s hands. That being said, 3rd & 1...

re: Which LSU recruiting class was the best so far ? - AlexLSU
2001 and 2017 have been our best if you’re looking at what they amounted to, followed by 2009, 2014, 2016. The 2017 class will likely produce a dozen NFL players ...

re: Who were the top 5 Tigers of the last decade? - AlexLSU
Feels weird to include PP7 since he played 2/3 years in the 00s, but he won a Thorpe award and was one of our best players ever: Burrow TM7 Devin White PP7 Claiborne OBJ, LF7, Guice, Adams, Chase are all elite players worthy of consideration. Don’t feel like Delpit is in the conversation d...

re: The defense if fine 90% of the time, it's the big play that's hurting us - AlexLSU
This is a good post and perspective. We’d all like to have a dominant defense to go with our dominant offense, but it’s not happening. The silver lining is that the defense has great series and halves, and it also comes up with big stops. We give up an insane amount of explosive plays for TDs, typic...

re: Has anyone gone the path of these new electric push mowers? - AlexLSU
I have the mower and weed eater. I have a quarter acre lot, and the battery life for my equipment is just fine if the grass is a reasonable height. The first time I cut it the yard was overgrown, and the battery died about 85% of the way through the cut. I think they advertise that the charge will l...
