Re: Risk control

The yields are sustainable only if the leverage party goes on for the next four years. MORL's two biggest holdings are... NLY and AGNC! Leveraged themselves, and then 2X minimum via MORL.

Re: Where to put $10,000?

Instead of just sitting on it, I would buy Canadian Silver Maple Leafs or US Silver Eagles.

Oh the irony.


I was not ironizing.

If all I had to invest; all I had invested; was $10,000, I would not do that.

Re: For-Profit Health Insurer Denies Coverage

We need single payer.

I didn't know Single Payer allowed you to have infinite health care at no cost. What a panacea. Expensive surgeries for everyone! Why save money for medical emergencies when someone else can foot the bill?

As a thought exercise, and a first approximation, what would have happened to the IBM stock price in the last 1.5 years, had a rising tide not lifted all boats? (Sidebar: let me clarify that I am a human despite possibly having used the subjunctive [more]

Re: Top Ten List of America's Stupidity

It's a humor board and the OP was funny if not 100% accurate (esp the math on the gas tax vs Marathon's profit margins, which was spectacularly wrong.) What the eh, every beady-eyed Canadian (See South Park) is entitled to their opinion.

Re: OT: Posco poscibilities

Re: Poll: IBM - odds for WEB's change of heart

After 61 votes, "very low" has won by an 8% margin over "low". Together they got 77% of the votes.

Poll: IBM - odds for WEB's change of heart

What odds would you give FOR Mr Buffett having a change of heart about his IBM investment and sell it off like Conoco-Phillips or Tesco?
