Re: 5 ticket punch card.

Interesting, here are my picks.

BRK.B
JNJ
PG
KO
NESN

I think there is a strong likelihood they will be round in 30 years.

The python code is to make current picks. The model has 6 parameters and I have workable values for four of them. To find workable values for the other two I need the historical EPS and ROE data. It looks like I might be able to use GTR1 to do the [more]

To be able to run your own backtests at Portfolio123 is $1k a year, which is more than I'm willing to pay.

Re: Oh No! Another Amazon Post

I think it would be awesome if everybody that worked at Amazon got tattoed with the company logo. It would make the eventual cleansing so much easier.

Historical EPS and ROE data?

Any suggestions on where to get downloadable historical EPS and ROE data? Historical price data is easily available and free, but I would like some quarterly EPS and ROE data to grind it against. Free is best, but not outlandish pay would be [more]

Re: "Frozen": $400 million?

Disneyland has a theater on Main Street, but it shows classic black and white Mickey Mouse cartoons. Nothing showing current movies.

One Investing Strategy I'll Likely Never Employ

I have used stop losses and they uniformly stopped me out at exactly the wrong time. I don't use them any more.

Value Invasion, Episode #2: Krispy Kreme (KKD)

This is good. My only request is shorten the title segment at the beginning. There is about 30 seconds of placards and another 30 seconds before we get to anything substantive, which felt kinda long. Once you get to the actual

Re: Stop Loss

I never use stop loss orders because I found that I got stopped out at exactly the wrong moment.
