Re: Any recommendations for Best Online Broker?

I like TDAmeritrade. I also have Fidelity and Vanguard accounts. I don't trade as much in the Fido account, so I've had less opportunity to directly interact with customer service. The few times I have, I've been less impressed with them than TDA. [more]

Re: Accuracy of financial data

FCF,

Are you manually reading and copy/pasting? If you are then EDGAR provides clipped out data from 10-Ks. Click the "Interactive data" tab after a company or CIK search in the 10-K listing. That will expand out and allow you to [more]

Re: $1000 to invest

AI,

Paul's right that an S&P 500 tracker, either Vanguard's or the SPY ETF is probably the best place to start.

If I had $1000 to put to work and was forced to in this market, I'd buy Berkshire-Hathaway, BRK-B.

Can LINN Energy Cover Its Distribution?

Dsandman,

I read that capex line from the JP Morgan report second hand. I haven't found the report on line. Sometimes people sneak them on to file sharers, but I haven't been able to google a copy up.

Can LINN Energy Cover Its Distribution?

Skepik,

The point is not that production growth is irrelevant. It certainly is, and LINN will grow production in 2014. The point is that focusing on raw production headlines can be misleading since they blend

Can LINN Energy Cover Its Distribution?

Dsandman,

The $93 per barrel used is based on LINN's Q4 pricing. The gas price used is also what they received in Q4. Rather than try to guess what LINN will get, I felt it best to anchor the analysis on last

Can LINN Energy Cover Its Distribution?

There's considerable concern that LINN Energy will be able to cover its distribution after the Berry deal's dilution. The high value of Berry's liquids-rich production makes that probable.

Re: Starting Over Again

Ronny,

Since you're interested primarily in ETFs, kahuna's suggestion of a larger broker makes even more sense. Many of the larger brokers give free trades on opening and more importantly, access to ETFs at no trading cost. Zero is even [more]

Re: Expenses on short positions

Ben,

Yep. All makes sense now.

The broker that had shares was TDAmeritrade. I don't know how many, but it was less than 500 shares. Scoop 'em up if you wish.

Thanks again for your help,

Peter

Re: Expenses on short positions

Guys. Thanks for the replies. I'm surprised that there's not a cost to loan shares in all situations. What's in it for the lender? I realize that the broker is just using its own retail inventory. But still, I don't see what they get from it, other [more]

Expenses on short positions

I've never, ever in my life shorted a stock. I've shorted plenty of options, but never an individual stock. I'm certain that folks here have.

However, it's a big factor. There are other things to consider. How much of the cost do [more]

Re: Inventory Turnover BWLD

JK,

I'm not sure about the inconsistency either. But, 81% turnover for BWLD is impossible. If they turned only 81% of their inventory per reporting period, they would give a lot of people food poisoning!!!!
