Re: Linksys Extender

I did a quick search on "Linksys Extender 06941"

I can't find that model.

Most wifi extenders usually only work if both the router and the extender are made by the same company.

Since your router is a DLINK, ask [more]

Re: NRF and NSAM

hamamoto

Re: Realty Income

I think the price movement over a 5% yield has been mostly by the influx of new money, using O as a bond proxy, so I expect prices to fall at least until dividend yield moves to 5%.

If we see deflation, expect the price to increase, as long [more]

Re: Fastenal (FAST)

FAST came to my attention around the 2009 crisis, but had no money to do anything. Nothing has changed. :)

So I like that the management is honest, dividend is nice, growth is fast, management is laser focused on customers.

Re: AXP Anyone?

IMO,

AXP is still important with 2 demographics:

- Affluent strata of society

Both of them are big spenders and therefore most places that want their business will still accept them.

Re: Stock buy backs killing economy

Do you think Obamacare made it easier to hire people and expand US operations? If so, why are so many of the 'jobs' being created of the part-time variety, such that they are exempt from Obamacare?

Re: Stock buy backs killing economy

CairnDad,

There is no: "fiduciary duty of the CEO and Board of Directors is to maximize shareholder value"

Re: Codecs

I've met many people who downloaded Codec packs and got infected with malware.

I usually recommend just downloading VLC and using it to play back media. It works with almost 99% of all the media I've come across.
