  1. All I know is the one on Coburg Rd by my place must have had 15 cars in line yesterday as we headed to the Duck game. And the Sheldon High kids are lined up outside the walk-up window at lunch time.
  2. To make sure I'm understanding - Rates are set in May and November. If you buy in October, your rates are set in October (3.54) and April (7.12%) If you buy in November you know your rate is 7.12% through April 30, but the new rate is set May 1 for the following 6 months (unknown) Interest is compounded semi-annually, so by buying in October you get 10K plus the accrued interest when that 7.12% kicks in on April 1 So if you think we'll be at lower than 3.43% next May, you'd buy in October instead of November. Did I get that all right?
  3. Shockingly, it looks like the media didn't quite get this one right. What Really Happened at the 2021 DC Peaks 50 Mile Race? And another quote: “Over 70 runners made it off the mountain that day on their own two feet…. Some runners were very ill-prepared." If anything, it seems like the race directors were a little overly-reactive to the weather that rolled in by ending the race and calling in SAR that quickly. But as I said earlier, with what happened in China earlier this year I'd rather see that than the alternative.
  4. Doing some research into commodities mutual funds, specifically looking for an option or two that have little-to-no precious metals exposure. Anybody have any they like?
  5. My freshman daughter is still “my little girl”! It does go fast, that’s for damned sure. Enjoy every moment you can.
  6. Tough question for those of us that had to go through this the past two years with covid, when most schools (at least out here on the West Coast) at best didn't have guided tours and at worst wouldn't let you on campus at all (Pepperdine). So we only visited a few of the 10 my daughter applied to. Santa Clara and UC Davis we just walked around on our own. St. Marys let us drive through early on then later opened up one-on-one tours, which is the only guided one we took. She also drove through Chatman and USD with her mother. She had seen Oregon's campus several times before, but she never considered that one seriously anyway. All of these visits started spring break of junior year and carried through into her senior year. If your kid is looking at a wide variety of schools at least get a sampling of different environments, especially early in the process. Small college town vs urban school, private vs large state university, that kind of thing. I thought for sure my daughter would end up at a small private school but after visiting UC Davis she loved the vibe of a real college town and bigger school, and that's where she ended up.
  7. After what happened in China, I think any race that deals with that kind of weather is going to shut it down and get people out of there as quickly as possible. I'm just glad nobody was seriously hurt. And congrats @tri-man 47 and @Steel Curtain!!!!
  8. Thanks, I think I have found it on Fidelity and am going through the set up now. Even found a "compare to your online brokerage" screen that showed Etrade (my current taxable account) doesn't offer it. Appreciate it!
  9. No worries, appreciate you chiming in. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but at just hundreds of dollars it seems fractional is important for DCA. For example, let's say I want to invest in SPY, currently at $441 and change. So if I want to invest $750 every paycheck, I'm only getting one share. It can go up to $500, I'm still getting one share, or drop to $400, still one share. Whereas if I can buy fractional I'm getting the full $750 worth every time, and getting more shares on dips and buying fewer as it goes up. I guess the other way to do it would be to target ETFs with lower prices, like SPLG which is a similar ETF that's currently trading at $51 and change. Not as ideal as fractional shares, but at least it gets me closer to true DCA.
  10. Isn't DRIP just dividend reinvestment? I'm looking to invest new money on an automatic basis, and to get true DCA it would seem you need the ability to buy fractional shares since I'm probably looking at <$1000 invested per period.
  11. Posted this in the stock thread but no replies yet..... Anybody have an auto-investing setup in an after-tax account? I'd like to find something I can set up that allows fractional shares of ETFs/MFs so that I can dollar cost average in. I've poked around Etrade (didn't seem to allow fractional, so it kind of defeats the purpose of DCA) and Fidelity (so far all I've found is a pdf form to complete).
  12. Well it's in a Roth so no tax benefits of the loss. I'll just forget it's there and see if it hits - it's only a quarter position so not a big deal.

  14. We still believe there might be something here? Or is joke the key word and I should get out and take my 49% loss and move on.
  15. I really only bought it because I wanted to be able to say I own 20,000,000 of something. Sounds cool. Maybe I should tell my lady, maybe she'll get excited!
