I'm happy today, though only in the short term. ATCO was my sixth-largest holding at the end of last year (https://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/show...#post16043631], and today it skyrocketed by 23 percent. However, it skyrocketed because apparently there's talk of it going private, and I don't like that. It's a great dividend stock for me that I've held for a long time.
So they are adjustable rate? I was thinking I could put them in ten years for my kids.

My FIL told me he had a CD that was rolling out that he had for 15%. I almost shit my pants. 15%???!!!! Obviously he got in at the top in the 80s. But holy balls. That's incredible.

He told me he didn't think he could get 15% return on his farm, which I have no idea if it is true, but getting something locked in here on at a high rate isn't the dumbest diversification.

Sold 7billion worth of shares right after the shareholders meeting and after saying he wouldn't sell any more a couple months ago. He must be losing the Twitter case.

Elon is a headcase.

I'd say it's schizophrenia but he's too old for that.

They have a fixed component w/ a variable inflation component that get updated biannually. The fixed component has mostly been 0 since the GFC. Though with rates getting jacked there maybe a bit of a fixed amount next refresh.

I think just stocks or real estate would be better for the kids 10 years down the road.

If you had I series bonds from the 80s still you're probably collecting 20%+ on govt backed bonds that aren't liable to state taxes and can defer fed taxes and keep compounding until maturity. That would be reason for a happy dance lol

This market is slowly bleeding down.

September is traditionally a bad month for stocks.

Anyone trying to bottom feed?

Anyone about to throw in the towel?

How are you investing any new cash?

I'm getting ready to get long with a bunch of long term call options. So many beaten into the ground stocks.

Yes, I know they can get cheaper but things are getting really valuable.

I got a job offer that's going to pay me more than I've ever made in my life (I'm a few years from 40 so I guess it's about time) I figure I'll have about 10-15k I want to invest my first year. Is that a good amount? Where should I begin?

Real Estate, buy you a rental. Best thing I ever did.

Oh wait, you probably rent , Buy your own home , get a fixer upper , live there for a year while you get it fixed up and then move to another house and rent that one out. that's how I did my first three.
