Re: Commissions

Yes, I would suggest keeping your purchases to a minimum of about $500. Then commissions are 1%. And of course larger purchases are even better.

This is a common problem with beginning investors. But then $5-10K will get your 10 to 20 [more]

Re: Netflix

The right answer depends on your circumstances. First, keep an eye on commission costs. Small purchases can be expensive. You'd like to keep costs as low as possible.

Second, how much do you think Netflix share price will change over the [more]

Re: Plumbing Fixtures

At the time they were known for larger tank drains which allowed the toilets to clear much better (as I once heard it said, "you could flush a turkey"). I think more manufacturers are doing that now, so it probably isn't unique to [more]

Re: NY Times: "Green" Germany and Coal

Still when you travel in Europe, they have lots of smokestacks, but no smoke. I would assume that means their reserve fuel is natural gas. And yes there are large wind farms at sea.

They do have domestic reserves of brown coal. They probably [more]

Re: Plumbing Fixtures

It would be interesting to learn which of these products are still made in USA. Ceramic toilets are heavy and probably expensive to ship. So should still be domestic.

Re: Should I wait a bit??

We seem to be in the midst of a correction. No one knows how low things can go. So best is to wait until at least things seem to bottom.

But false bottoms are not unknown. So you never know for sure. Of course, once you have some gains you [more]

Re: What to do with a company pension?

First, consider rolling the pension funds over to IRA accounts. They are individual. So you and your wife will have separate IRAs, but you can name each other as beneficiaries.

Re: OTC stocks to NYSE listing

Yes, your shares are the asset. The listing has nothing to do with their value. The listing merely shows where the current market price is reported.

Re: Trump's Coal Plan...

Given time, most can adapt to changes in the economy. But sudden changes can be painful.

When it comes to reducing coal usage, I think the answer is more go slow (to allow time to adjust) than lets not do anything.

Re: OTC stocks to NYSE listing

Yes, the stock market listings merely show the market price of the shares. The exchange used or their ticker does not affect the shares you own. If in a broker account, the ticker will change automatically. If you hold the certificates, it does not [more]

Re: Stalling in wet weather

Of course humid air in your gas tank can condense out water on a cold day. I think most cars these days are equipped to trap vapors from the gas tank and that should also keep out humid air.

But you might check for a leaking gas cap or [more]
