Re: Florida Insurance

Insurance I'll stay out of but talk to your CPA/EA about personal and family use of rental property. The IRS may well disallow deductions for expenses if you or your family occupy a rental property more than an incidental amount of time. I don't [more]

12 years on, it's upgrade time ... I think

I'm not a downloader, cloud user, online bill payer or tax software user, just an old fart who likes having all his data in one readily accessible place. Ergo I've been using Quicken Deluxe 2003 since I pulled it out of the shrink wrap twelve years [more]

Re: Concentration ...

I'd approach it thus: Assume that all your holdings are in cash. Which of them would you buy today with that cash? If you wouldn't buy it today there must be a compelling reason to hold it today.

Re: Greenbrier (GBX)

Article says inability to supply cars meeting the new not yet announced specs could mean oil must be shipped by truck instead of rail.

That isn't going to go very far. It may serve small users but in railroad-shipping quantities, [more]

Re: Location of a value in a worksheet

Thank you! My little list of Excel "try-em" functions and VBA is filling up. Between the holidays I'll spend a day to go through them. That's a recreational day for me but my wife says I'm nuts. Beats shoveling snow, though, [more]

Re: Location of a value in a worksheet

rharmelink's INDEX() function does the deed I need, thanks. I'd used that function just once before, many years ago, so it simply didn't come to mind.

Radish, you're right, MATCH() returns #N/A because of the rectangular range, therefore [more]

Re: Location of a value in a worksheet

The function =MAX(H9:BL1866) returns the value of the cell with the maximum value in both the Win7 with Office 2007 system at the office and on my Win7 with Office XP here at home. I'm back at the office later this week so I'll try your MAXX VBA over [more]

Location of a value in a worksheet

We have a large worksheet that is populated with data in the course of a laboratory operation. Incoming values are entered in the cells corresponding to the column and row headings. At the end of the operation the data is tallied and graphed in a [more]

Re: Owner finance rental property to renter

Talk to a real estate lawyer before you take any action at all. This is a situation where your obvious lack of knowledge WRT real estate law can effortlessly dig you a costly and permanent hole.

Re: Help understanding the 17% NAV drop for PSPAX

Given that it's December I'll bet they just made the mandatory distribution of dividends and capital gains. You now have either more shares or more cash than you had just before that NAV drop.

Re: Allocation of Mutual Funds in IRA

The very aggressive allocation for someone aged 61 is a bit telling, as is the "ugh" WRT bonds. It may be likely that you'll reach retirement before the market rains on your parade but, retirement being five years out, it's also likely [more]
