Haha we have 2 of the “same” car but different colors and 7 years difference in model year so completely different body style....
I buy most of my wine online from Casemates and de Négoce. Sometimes you get a dud but in general you get well made wines at <$20 bottle that beat anything you’d get off the shelf at the grocery store in the sub-$40 range. Casemates is a daily deal site that sends bottles ahead to the community ...
Ping hoofer, sun mountain 2.5, Titleist stand bag all good options. Plenty of room for two sleeves of balls, a handful of tees, a light jacket, and a couple cans of zyn. It’s lost on me why some of you nerds need a golf bag that can accommodate a family of 4. But please don’t stop bc it’s helpful fo...
No. Sometimes there are fees associated with buying mutual funds but my intent wasn’t to say ETFs are better than mutual funds. Just a suggestion for this kid. As long as you’re not trying to stock pick and are in quality diversified funds with low fees then you’re good. But I suspect you knew that....
You don’t need a financial advisor. This is the playbook for you, each subsequent step pending there’s still extra money to put into each one: - Contribute to 401k to the extent your employer matches - Max out Roth IRA - Contribute to taxable brokerage account In each account put funds into ...
The stuff that rots and dies has to be in sufficient accumulations, at a sufficient depth and temperature to cook into oil and gas and trapped in a geologic formation such that it is recoverable. Typically this occurs where shallow oceans used to exist - all the organisms in the shallow water die an...
Anyone else getting constant crowd noise on the audio? It never stops. Driving me nuts like the constant whine of the vuvu-whatevers at a soccer game. ...

The main difference is that a margin loan may be used to buy securities while an SBLOC can not be. The interest rates on a margin loans are approaching credit card levels - 10+%. SBLOC will be more in line with mortgage rates. ...

I shopped for one of these this year. I think it’s possible you’re misreading the interest rates - that is likely SOFR plus 2-3% which puts you in the 7.5% range. We ultimately opted to pay cash for the home improvement project we are now working on....
No crumbs but most likely your house smells like dog and you’re nose blind to it....

I posted a “looking to buy” thread on Craigslist for a concert ticket. Trying to get something last minute for less than face value. Had success doing this for years but when ticket transfers went digital, a scammer responds saying he has ticket but you Zelle the money first. I said I would Zelle ha...
I think SPYs market share is driven by the depth of liquidity in the associated options. It is the highest vol on options contracts of any ticker on any given day. I think long-only investors are smart enough to realize that there are substantially identical alternatives with lower fee....
That’s a single weekend of travel ball. ...
Yes, the leaderboard at golf a tournament changes as golfers play more golf. ...
Good point. I’d probably change the channel if they sprinkled in a few shots from WGR #1. ...
And there’s Scottie finally. With birdie to get to -6....
How/why do they choose to ignore some guys? I get that it’s the Rahm v Koepka show at this point but I haven’t seen Scottie, Cam Young, Reed or Theegala hit a single shot and all are right there at -4/5....
I drink 3-4 liters of water each day. And a Diet Dr Pepper in the afternoon. These things are not mutually exclusive. ...
I don’t let my snot-nosed kids ride in my Maserati. My chauffeur doesn’t complain about the kids’ van....
