Re: Investments Trade Log

I sold UTX. It has nothing to do with the fundamentals it is just that they are splitting up the company. Spinoffs actually tend do do well, but I don't have the scale to make it work in this case. The reorganization fee for tdameritrade is $48 and since the number of stocks goes from 1 to 3 commiss...

Re: Architecture / Environmental Engineering

Have you considered teaching? Sounds like a way to use the degree you've worked toward with only a little more education.

Re: Dealing with abuse at work

Scott Adams discussed Trump's nicknaming at length in his book win bigly. He calls it a linguistic kill shot. Apparently it is best to use something that reinforces itself visually every time you see them like low energy Jeb or Little Michael Bloomberg. Not all the nicknames followed that pattern bu...

You could also increase how fancy your meals are and rub it in. "I'm having some sirloin steak and steamed asparagus with garlic parmesan hollandaise sauce. What are you having?"

Plus one to finding what he's insecure about.

I guess a less congressional thing to try is to explain "I would spend more, but I don't want to work here forever and when I leave I probably won't make as much money." No need to say anything about retirement.

Re: extremely frugal vegan keto,keto, and carnivore diets

Back to the original question, just plain keto would be the cheapest and least likely to lead to nutrient deficiencies. You would have the flexibility to get the meat on sale, the cheap eggs and vegetables when they are in season and therefore inexpensive. You could even garden. Both the vegan and c...

Re: extremely frugal vegan keto,keto, and carnivore diets

Since humans are large mammals, and the population of humans is at all time extreme high, favoring other large mammals (even herbivores) in the mix may not result in best-case short-term equilibrium. Well, the thing is that pasture land is not easily converted to growing crops. Usually they are rai...

Re: Do people just give up after 25?

Youth hides those particular shortcomings. Of course that 19 yo has a shitty job she has no experience or degree. He doesn't have money, but he is just starting out. They aren't fat yet because their bodies have been using the caloric surplus to grow taller not rounder, but that stops.

Re: Dividends are psychologically more robust than buybacks

There is an argument that a buyback shows that the management has no good ideas. In that case it is a 'sell' indicator. One can always find a way to be cynical. For instance you could say a company can't afford to pay a dividend or do a buyback because their position is precarious and they are afra...

Re: Anyone else feeling depressed about global equities 10 year outlook?

(sigh) Experts do not have a good record of accurately predicting the future in the stock market. Still, if you think growth is too slow where you are invested why don't you change it? There is always a bull market somewhere whether it is a fast growing emerging market or a trend tied to a specific ...
