Re: Big Changes At Ford

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]

Re: August Sales

Re: August Sales

So how about a longer commentary Rob? Should I take this as early warning of management faltering? Or is it as good as one should expect given lack of growth and cautious consumers ( less than 1% GDP revised down again)?

Re: Mutual Funds: Sustainability + Low Turnover

I've owned this fund in the past. I dumped it in favor of dividend objective funds and other broad based portfolios because of what I saw as indifferent performance and high cost fees (relative to other Vanguard funds). Its objectively a low .5 % [more]

Re: Louisiana Flooding

You would all profit from avoiding the "denier" or denyer labels and reading or re-reading Nate Silver's eminently readable book on statistics and their application.

Re: ESG Investing Trending Upward

Thanks, much less ambiguous.... Tho I cannot resist wondering how its even possible "Green Bonds" can be "socially responsible" and financially irresponsible at the same time ;-)

Re: ESG Investing Trending Upward

I have to admit, that I am uncertain as to your basic suggestions here Ro. Perhaps it is merely an observation on trends. Though one could take your post as seriously considering or recommending "green bonds" as an investment. Its all too [more]

Re: CEO Pay vs. Stock Performance
