Re: Davita

I am not yet confident enough in the outlook for kidney disease demand and Davita's future. I get the obesity trends and diabetes link to kidney failure.

The lack of a dividend is also concerning to me.

More broadly, the U.S. [more]

Re: OT - Safe Value - BP or IBM?

I am confident there must be some thoughts on BP as an investment within this generally well informed and thoughtful group!

OT - Safe Value - BP or IBM?

I have limited dry powder, in fact we are moving things around just a trifle in order to get any right now. I respect folks here and wondered if anyone else is considering these two at the moment or wants to strongly argue for LUK or yet another [more]

Re: Roth Age calculation

Thank you. I suspected as much, but my loophole loving maximization hindbrain wanted to see if we had an option there.

Roth Age calculation

Boy Howdy tax folks,

Let's say in some hypothetical future year my wife turns 50 in January and use 2015 as that hypothetical year despite her being far, far younger than this would imply...

Can she make a $6.5k contribution to a [more]

Re: Daughter's brokerage acct, advice?

With kids in college myself, I think about this a lot. FWIW, I think the most important element here is to try and help your daughter build good habits.

If anyone else is trying this for the first time, herding cattle can be a costly pain. Try not to make my mistake of accepting a quest to herd 8-10 cattle to village X, not realize the price of 190 was per cow, and then lose the stupid animals [more]

Re: CBI: Not Exactly OT

It bears repeating, I greatly appreciate the quality leads associated with this board. Digging into a contractor's accounting is a real tough nut to crack, I do it as part of my day job from time to time. Doing it right requires an enormous amount of [more]

Re: Noob Mount & Blade Questions

Appreciate the advice!

To anyone who is thinking about trying this game, the demo on steam has a solid 10-40 hours of game play for free. It is a bear to learn some of the techniques like using a lance, for me. Still, you can just dismount [more]

Noob Mount & Blade Questions

So, I can listen at least once a quarter (mark the calendar).

I tried the M & B Warband demo last night and found it more than a little challenging. My ability to hit something with a lance approaches absolite zero. Getting off my horse, [more]

Re: Oh this is NOT good news....

So...

I will confess I have not played Mount & Blade I or II, and get the distinct impression I need to fix that. I tried years ago, found it a bit hard, and got distracted by some other new, shiny game.

Which would be the [more]

If SP500 overvalued, and you have a 401(k)...

This will be a long winded request for advice and commentary. Let’s imagine for reasons detailed at glorious length by industrious and wise folks on this board, you believe the SP500 to be overvalued to a significant degree.

Re: Late to the party but...Clash of Clans?

Re: Anyone try Tera? Thoughts?

I only spent four hours or so in the game over the weekend. Overall, it seems like World of Warcraft recreated by some fairly pervy twenty year old guys who daydream of busty women wearing wild outfits. That does not bother me personally, but both [more]
