Re: A Weighted* View

Hi Elan, I do lurk here off an on. Enough to get the gist of the posts, but not enough to understand who's doing what as far as investing with any of the screens. I do understand why not everyone is anxious to share their experiences and results, but [more]

A Weighted* View

Hi guys,

In attempting to give weight to not only the number of screens a company passes but also the PLACEMENT RANK it passed in, I came up with the following table where the “Score” is the “reverse” of the sum of all the places of a stock. [more]

Hot Swap Drive

What makes a hot swap drive hot swap? Is it just the case? My newest pc has a 3.5" hot swap drive bay and case. When I look for drives for it, is any 3.5" SATA drive compatible, or does it somehow have to be special to be hot [more]

Re: Windows 8.1

I bought a new high-end Lenovo gaming pc awhile back and couldn't get any OS other than Win 8.1. I hate it, it must have been designed for first-graders. I recently bought Win 7 to replace it, but someone here turned me on to Classic Shell and now [more]

Poll: Weekly Value Hounds Screen

It occurs to me that we could build a custom screen for VH candidates (not to limit them, but to find them.) Has this been done before? Anyway, in SIPro, there are 10's of thousands of data points at our disposal on a weekly (not daily) basis, [more]

Re: Musings Unlimited

Denny, if we could get our time machine to spit us out 10 years into the past, I would settle for buying your beloved AAPL with every dime I could beg, borrow or ... well, I don't steal. :) Every $1,000 would become 26,666.67.

Re: Musings Unlimited

Hi kelbon,

You're absolutely right. I'm not trying to sell the stock, but share info and gain feedback. It worked; you give good feedback. This isn't a 'typical' holding for me in that I would normally buy it, watch from a distance for a [more]

Musings Unlimited

Unless a company falls down and get hurt, as Value Hounds, we avoid some terms like the plague much of the time. We avoid them so ardently that often phrases like these are seldom in our company-specific analytic vocabulary:

To Serve or Not to Serve

Hi guys,

I have an old Dell computer that still rocks. Rather than pitch it to the recyclers, I’d like to use it to become a server for our other pc’s and maybe to the internet for my own files as well, although that’s a wish only and not a [more]

Re: Creating a hierarchy of rate risk.

Hi Hound,

I'm not a guru, sorry, but I strongly believe in one thing: One day does not a market make. Crazy things can happen in one day, one week, month or decade. Things that we can't even see and maybe never will. I would humbly suggest [more]

Re: Fourth Bank Dies

FMike,

I traded thousands of shares of Doral way back when, just to get above the water line in an experiment with the BMW method, so I feel like I know it fairly well.

Re: A stock I intend to buy...

I did indeed mean SWKS. In a more normal market I would not let my position get so large. In the current market however, I don't mind letting such a small company grow to be such a large part of my portfolios. Hopefully they will continue to kick [more]

So all METaRs are idiots that can't pick stocks. You're smarter and more talented by far (and polite too!) so you don't pick stocks yourself, but hire others to manage your money. Did I miss [more]
