Re: Top 3

AMZN, since '97
AAPL, since '08
NFLX, since '12

Re: Foolish Wisdom?

The topic is OT and will likely get a gentle boot if it goes on, but from my experience since my '91 start, it does work. And almost comparable gains without doing much. Stock picking and timing are extremely important for best results. This is a [more]

Re: Why I pay little attention to EV/S evaluatio

Dancing like Chuck Prince carries risk; the music stops one day. You are right until you are wrong. Play the game but keep your eye on the location of the exits from the ballroom.

The music stops, but it starts back up in the not too [more]

Re: TMF - paid member ?

Interesting link, thanks. 21 years here for me, and it works for me...but I'm seasoned :) The debacle that was MDP changed my view of MF for good, with the marketing thing a close second. I find it all pretty interesting from a human behavior [more]

Re: Winners and Losers in a concentrated Portfol

Mercatorn,

Re: How to Grow Basil

You have a lot going on with those veggies! Sulfer will work, but it takes time...a couple years or so. In your sandy? soil, it will be relatively fast, maybe a year.

Re: Real estate profit and AGI
