Hmmmmm...

So I did my taxes this weekend and submitted an e-filing…. NOT.

My filing kicked out and the error message said someone using my Social Security Number had already filed a refund request. Good luck, since I owed the IRS.

Re: Noodles NDLS $19.57 Down 29%

I'll be watching in case Sweet Green ever decides to IPO. Ten dollar salads, healthy food, crazy long lines.

There's a salad place near my house called Chop't (the parent is a private company).

The place serves those [more]

Re: Noodles NDLS $19.57 Down 29%

I found your post interesting. There's a Chipotle around the corner and it always has a line. Don't know from noodles.

I was sort of applying your method to Coach as I was walking the mall near my house to escape the bitter cold weather. [more]

Re: Lots of 'o's in those balloons

Don't get me wrong, Goofy, they had to do it and I am glad they did, but, in doing so, they created moral hazards that will play out over generations.

Here's a great book, in part, about how moral hazards play out over generations. [more]

Re: Best Investment Idea of the Day

I thought Naj's Plan B was to become a stake horse for tournament poker pros in a reprise of George C. Scott as the evil Burt in that old classic The Hustler.

Re: Lots of 'o's in those balloons

Congrats, Goofy. 2014 was a tough year for retirees. Along with 2008, it is one of the only two years since I retired in 2001 when I finished with less money than I started with.

Had a lot of dental work. Put 25K into some house stuff. Went [more]

Re: MCD

maybe you get your food without anything in it, but the idea that Chipotle is 'healthy' alternative to McD is obviously an urban myth.

Re: MCD

There are a lot of reasons to be negative on McDonalds. They are established as a low priced producer of unhealthy food. To reposition, they alienate their base customers. Stay the same and they have low margins and a tired menu of stuff we all want [more]

Re: Hey Teddy!:sp500

I don't like the up-down volume. Transports very negative. There's a lot I don't like.

Also can't eat on zero interest rates.

REITs have been beat up recently. Not sure why.

MCD looks like a sell but yields 3.4%, paying [more]

Going Nowhere… the Hard Way

OK, so BA, MCD, MO are probably three of my top ten positions.

All that means is I am up maybe ten bucks on the year.

I could do that well in cash.
