Re: any fund or ETF that tracks Valueline?

Fuskie,
as BTC says, http://vlfunds.com/ has funds like VLIFX that do use the Value Line data (like timeliness) to invest. What BTC wants is to eliminate rank 3 companies.

3 letters repeated

We all know words in which the same two letter sequence repeats. For example, ALluviAL, baNANA, a lot of CH and SH words (CHurCH, SHuSH) etc.

Bought CHK, INTC; reduced KO

Everything old is new again... :-)
I had gotten out of CHK in 2006 and INTC in 2009, 2012 and 2014 (with small profits - it's a dating stock, not a marriage stock.)

Re: OT: Which account to invest in?

I'd still go for non-retirement accounts. Foreign taxes vary from about 15-25% (with outliers like Switzerland) and can be claimed as a credit (not just a deduction but a $1-to-$1 reduction in taxes) on your 1040. So losing this benefit by putting [more]

An Open Letter

Dear Apple,
I am never going to buy your watch. What makes you think it's OK to create an undeletable watch app on my iPhone? Are you trying to be the next Microsoft bundling its unwanted products together with essential ones? Think different.

Re: IBM price speculation

Jtrau: Buffett has said in the past that he would not mind if the market closed for ten years after he bought a stock.

I would say, give it ten years. "Dead money" is a false concept if you invest in stocks. You never know

IBM price speculation

What is a reasonable number of years for Berkshire to hold on to and add to IBM before declaring it a dud?

IBM has been dead money for 4 years. No doubt at some point the stock will shoot up if only from the increasing EPS / decreasing P/E [more]

Anyway re homeopathy. I suspect the ingredients are helpful but the dilution theory (less concentration = more potency) makes no sense to me. So homeopathic medicines that happen to get the [more]

Re: Learned Something

How could I have sold it at $94 when the low for the day was listed at $98?
