CAPS Outperform Pitch

GLW Outperform

Well managed innovative business with R&D plus profitable deployment of developed products, its business is built to last for decades Adding to my position on slight weakness, this is a long term investment.

Re: Millennial Musings

Re: August Sales

Yes I have "occasionally" dabbled in options. Usually covered calls, but I find they require more attention than I am willing to give them. I'd really rather be fishing, making wine, drinking wine or otherwise ditzing around. [more]

I am semi retired and F is taking the place of Bonds with pitiful returns and HUGE downside price risk. So far I am MORE than satisfied with 4.8% considering the application and the risk....as long as the risk remains low due to good management. [more]

Re: August Sales
