where is LB headed?

This summer, LB gave dismal guidance for the near future....so of course, that caused the share price to go up over the next three months....from $30something to $57. Go figure. The numbers that LB reported last month did beat expectations, but were [more]

Re: ACEYX

ty for the correction

ACGYX is the correct ticker. Tickers should be restricted to 3 alpha/numeric/special character/hieroglyph/petroglyph characters (IMHO).

ACEYX

I've owned this Alliance Bernstein income fund for 4 years, gotten an average annual net return of 9.21% (some of that is unrealized capital gain).

Looks like it has a top rating from Morning*...and it has trounced its aggregate bond [more]

I'm planning on calling my county office tomorrow, and asking them how far out in advance can I pay my property tax (I live in California).

doing taxes on intuit site or downloading TT

I've always bought the TurboTax CD, or downloaded the program directly.

I see that I can also just do my taxes on the Inuit webpage, and pay when I file.

Just wondering if anyone has done that in the past and had any issues [more]
