  1. Speaking of Tilray, what are your thoughts on this stock now? I bought some in August at $7.00 a share and can’t decide if I should let it run or take some profits. It was more just for fun money than anything, so tempted to let it run despite it likely being massively overvalued at this point
  2. Yeah - I wish they would be a little more clear with what they are thinking. I understand it’s a moving target, but no way will they be at 100%. Waste open had 5000 on Saturday. In 2019 they let in 200k. My guess is 10-25% capacity by then but not sure how they will determine who that 10-25% are. Luckily I can cancel the Airbnb I booked for full return up to a month out (one of the main reasons I picked the house I did).
  3. Apologies if this has been discussed but any new news on attendance at events this year? I got tickets for Saturday and Sunday of the PGA championship this year in SC but can’t imagine it will be full capacity in May. That said I’m not seeing any news when I google it. Anyone hear anything?
  4. Haven’t posted in this thread in a long time, but thought I would check in as I am happy with my 2020 results, but really want to take the next step in 2021. I have gone from weight 212.3 lbs on Feb 3rd with a body fat of 21.4% to 176 lbs and body fat of 13.5% today. Ive learned a lot of the last 10 months or so (not all was just learned, but finally applied some of it) so thought I would share a few things that I continually tell myself now: 1) Stop making excuses - for years I would always say “ill start dieting when xyz happens” or “ill start on Monday” and it would just be a cycle
  5. If you end up doing the charitable donation thing as I suggested, just ignore my suggested charity, The Human Fund. My friend George did it and got into a little mess with it. He is always getting into silly hijinx though.
  6. I think a charitable donation in lieu of a gift may be the way to go this year. Maybe a donation in their name to “The Human Fund”
  7. I think there is a good balance to find here. I certainly spend. Vacations (going to Maldives for 12 nights in March), snowboarding, golf, etc. But, when I was 22 and started out by putting 5% of my paycheck into my 401k and upping that 1% each year you don’t even notice it. Next thing you know, by 40, you have 500k for retirement. I have plenty of friends who didn’t do this, made similar money as me, and have done less trips/nights out and have next to nothing saved for retirement. So save early and save often comes with a caveat to still live your life. Just be smart about it! Everyt
  8. I’ve been very fortunate with work to be able to set aside some other retirement money, it’s not a ton more than this, I just expect it to be able to grow quicker with no restrictions on what I can put in. One thing I always tell anyone who asks me about their career is to “save early and save often”.
  9. Hi everyone - love this thread, read everyday just to watch and learn and hope to start contributing more. Question for you all, which could either go here or the retirement thread, but since stock specific, im brining here. I just rolled over my 401k from my old employer to a tradition IRA Had around 470k. I took 350k in a 2060 target date, 60k in an emerging markets fund (both these funds are i shares because of my work) and then I have another 60k I’d like to buy 5-10 stocks for a long term hold. I keep bouncing around names like, amazon, apple, docusign, zoom, netflix, Disney, wou
  10. Anyone doing any of the snake drafts on FD? Last two weeks I’ve done two a piece and have won all four. This week was able to pair Mahomes/Hill in both for easy wins (one 8 team draft, one 2 team). Could just be luck, but somewhat seems like weak players in them
  11. I went Kupp over Reynolds, others the same
  12. Thanks. And thats funny, im at my in-laws for the month and just today started using their ottoman and a few dumbbells I brought with me since i had no other option
