Re: Poll: Your Page Test for a New Book

I couldn't answer the poll, because it really varies for me. I read as far as I can tolerate it. Sometimes that takes me to the end, sometimes halfway or more, and sometimes I can't make it out of the first chapter.

Above Suspicion I think was the first series I watched on Acorn. I just wish there was more than just the one season.

Re: acorn.tv

I agree about Line of Duty; I'd missed that in making my list.

I see that it's available for free (but with commercials) on Hulu. I'm happy to pay $5/mo to watch it commercial-free, though -- such a better experience.

Re: Pick 6 for 2015?

Did I miss the contest for this year? Has it faded away?

Re: NRF/NRF-E

Yes, UBTI can be a problem in an IRA, although I've never earned enough that it ever approached the limit ($1K?). I don't think a REIT has ever generated UBTI, but if it has, it's extremely rare (since I don't recall hearing about it). It can be an [more]

Re: NRF/NRF-E

With regards to NRF common - I'm noticing that their distributions regularly consist of dividends and ordinary income and return of capital. Would this be something that would rule them out for part of a ROTH IRA? I vaguely remember something odd [more]
