I have a refrigerator box Cav can live in. So no worries there.

He can room with @UniAlias.  Actually that sounds pretty great.

Cool. Also let's not bring up long ago, likely drunken posts where we talk about our spouses

Let’s get serious. It’s a message board, don’t post stupid things if you don’t want people bringing them up. Sorry I remembered some of his (or your?) posts and legitimately wondered if he was doing something way too risky. Maybe I actually genuinely worried. If I was an #######, I’d be hoping for a huge dive and then reply to his post with a 🤣

I bought 4-5k shares on NVDA on the recommendation of another poster, I don't know 7-8 years ago or something, maybe a 20k total investment, and another prominent poster that hasn't been around in many years PMed me I was crazy and to dump it.  The person who PMed had made a fortune in the stock market so I valued his opinion and sold.

 

STILL

 

 

HURTS

No I don’t, but I do legitimately worry and/or have a bit of disbelief. It’s an anonymous message board and I take a lot with a grain of salt.

Also, I’m not judging, just saying that in reading some of his posts and threads that if true, seem to make it more risky than others in here.

Anyway, I’ll refrain from making anyone all upset. If he loses his shirt somehow, I won’t care, it’s could be his last shirt or maybe a tiny portion of his huge wardrobe of shirts. I won’t care and won’t comment. Sound good?

Why do you hate Cav?

I live in NYC, unfortunately my house is comparable to a shoebox. I can rent out some space behind one of my strollers under the staircase in the hallway for about $1,700 a month. If a garage is a must, this one sells spots for $200k and they only have a monthly carrying charge of $300 a month on top of the initial investment. Norah Jones lives across the street, so you've got that going for you.

As I live in So-Cal your offer makes living in the tunnel below freeway look pretty attractive.  Though the Norah angle does give me pause.

If CYDY crashes maybe we together could kick out the current “residents” and take it over.  If we sleep in shifts I think it’s relatively safe.

Don't. My first post may have been a bit mean I guess, if you read it that way. When I saw that number and tied it to the thread about gambling behind his wife’s back (said she would be mad so obviously a problem before) and losing almost everything in the crypto thread, that amount did give me pause. I could be wrong and honestly at this point with two people saying to back off, I don’t care anymore. If it does well and he actually has that much he’ll have a nice pay day. I’ll be happy as well but if it bottoms out, not a big deal to me.

I’ve got a big house with enough room for a lap pool. Even though I should have used your bagging on Shopify as my confirmation to invest, I’ll still let you crash if you sell your parking space and put in the lap pool.

Hey! FC and I were working out a deal and you come in here all Johnny come lately with your safe investing and big house.  Not cool buddy.  Now I’m going to have to defend the tunnel all by myself.

I'll put the lap pool under the tunnel, but since I'm the proprietor of said lap pool, we split the security 80/20 instead of 50/50.

On a stock related note, CNBC is going to need to hire new writers for their headlines. Every day for the last month:

Only one data point among many out there but read that Greek 10 year bond yields fell below 1%. A country that defaulted just a few years ago that still has a 16% unemployment rate in a “booming economy” can borrow cheaper than the US, makes tons of sense right?

I used to do pharma bus dev and valuation. Its so difficult to assess market value of these pre launch companies as they don't need to convince 50 companies they are worth $x billion, they just need to convince one.

Barrick Gold increases dividend, brings debt down to a little above $2B, it was around $12B in 2012. Symbol is GOLD if anyone is interested. Nice earnings this morning.

I mentioned them in this thread a couple of weeks ago. Them and FNV and NEM. 

Has been a really good group of gold investments for me lately.

As someone who's actually hung with Cav... 

From what I understand, He's got a pretty solid nest egg, as well as appetite for trolling and ####### with people.

Stupid question maybe:

If we’re confident that the market will continue to go up over the long haul, why shouldn’t I be putting all or a large chunk of my portfolio into an ETF like UDOW, Pro Shares Ultra Pro Dow 30, which tracks the Dow but gives you 3x the movement in either direction.  I look back just 10 years on that and if I got 15 or 20 years of that return before I retire, I’d retire a pretty wealthy dude. 
 

What am I missing here?  Why doesn’t everyone do this?

20% corrections are not uncommon, let's say the market takes a 30% downturn, how would you feel turning on CNBC watching the market go down like this and losing most of your portfolio?  Sure there's the potential for big gains and maybe it would even work out for you but would big gains really change your life that much?  What about big losses?

Really tough.  Alternative energy growth rates are down, but energy demand is still increasing.  Yet we have huge pawns all over the board moving with respect to oil prices, which makes it incredibly hard to see where that market is going.  XOM is pretty debt heavy and RDS has a massive debt load (right there with T in the "oh crap" pile).  CVX has been driving theirs down (I own a decent bit of CVX). 

Honestly, my little personal perspective - right now great swing trade.  I think oil companies will reflate after the virus item.  Once CVX hits 120+ again I'm selling and waiting until it drops near 110 to buy again.  I see a lot of yo-yo in this market continuing.  

Just a public service announcement that RBS B is going ex-dividend today (and markets are getting beat up) so the share price will drop a nice chunk. Anyone wanting to buy would be getting a near 52-week low price.

Elon Musk on the last earnings call two weeks ago when asked why he doesn't raise capital now with the stock price being so high.

Quote

So -- but we're spending money I think efficiently and we're not artificially limiting our progress. And then despite all that we are still generating positive cash. So in light of that, it doesn't make sense to raise money because we expect to generate cash despite this growth level.

Tesla today

Quote

Tesla Inc said on Thursday it plans to raise $2 billion by selling shares through a public offering.

I honestly don't see how anyone can feel comfortable investing in this company. I'm sure the cars are great and all that, but when I think of Musk, I don't think, "Responsible, honest financial steward."

Yet if I was running that place I would have done the same thing - an opportunity to raise capital doesn't come around like this very often.  After going parabolic the valuation was insanely high, so a perfect time to issue shares.
