Re: NGVC free fall

Hi KC,

I successfully traded in and out of NGVC a couple times a year ago, but thankful to be watching from the sidelines this week. The one store that I visited in Eugene just had a "dead" feel to it that turned me off, and I [more]

Re: CMG

I'd be interested in the 200 - 300 range. There's a chance we get there after earnings in a few weeks. I'm betting Q1 is going to look BAD.

The next CMG earnings and subsequent market reaction is going to be one of the most [more]

Re: Staying Fully Invested

There is definitely an "other side of the coin" to be looked at.

Re: Does SRI Make Financial Sense?

Re: A 403 (b) is like a 401 (k) except it's not.

• Single vendor plans, which would greatly lower costs and simplify matters, are not required in 403(b)s

Re: All in or dollar cost average

Way back in the day when TMF first started, they had an article similar to your question. It paired to investors putting money into their IRAs. Person A had perfect timing and bought the S&P at the bottom every year. Person B had the worst [more]
