  1. Filled up the IRA and cash account with as much MO as I could buy today. If it drops into the mid 30's, will sell half of my GE position to buy more.
  2. It boils down to the FOMO principal "Fear Of Missing Out"
  3. Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. Eat like no one is going to see you naked.
  4. Here is a print version of the 18 biases. Very nice read and summary. https://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/06/10/charlie-mungers-18-biases-that-cause-you-to-fool-y.aspx
  5. I empathize... But securities fraud and conspiracy unfortunately means that he's going to Club Fed. Would have been a lot of fun to get a social media feed of Shkreli in maximum security. i know it's wishful thinking.
  6. Thank god!!! That fucker has cost me enough $$$ that I hope he a very hard time is prison. And it better be a maximum security prison.
  7. Understand where they are coming from and doing this in order to build their brand. At the same time, a very slippery slope and people will always expect their money back if they lose. Personally think this is horse shit, allowing people to talk on more risk thus supporting the idea that the price can only go up.
  8. Just bought my first Fairfax shares also. Are we suppose to get a free t-shit or something? :D
  9. Inshoring has been happening for awhile now. The 1st time I had heard of it was back in 2009, when a few companies moved their technology and call centers from overseas to Arkansas. The service was more reliable and also wages were cheaper then average, not to mention the real-estate . The tax benefit from the state was an added bonus. Basically just move your company to a town that is heavy manufacturing and semi close to a college and you will get more then enough qualified and well motivated employees. If they want to quit, sure have fun in a factory bc they have a list of people waiting for a job. With telecommuting/work from home becoming more popular over the last several years a few call centers have moved to this model. A person just logs into a special computer and the company saves on real-estate.
  10. Halfway through this book and so far think it provides some great insight into the upcoming artificial intelligence age and how it could affect peoples lives. Discusses advancements in the fields and how it could affect the economy, help us benefit, etc. I have problems trying to keep up with all the changes that occur and the shifts that are caused with technology advancements. This book has helped open my eyes with the advancements and how it could impact society. This is not a investment book in the traditional sense. However, could help in identify trends that occur over the next several years. Have already found several examples from the author, that upon further research has blown my mind with how far the technology has advanced. https://www.amazon.com/Augmented-Life-Smart-Brett-King-ebook/dp/B01GV9OUWW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496674738&sr=8-1&keywords=augmented
  11. lookup the ticker symbol on seeking alpha. If I remember correctly, it has a few articles talking about the spread and how people think about it.
  12. Found this article where the DTCC had a successful proof of concept test for derivatives. Plan on rolling out the technology in phases beginning in 2018. http://www.coindesk.com/11-trillion-bet-dtcc-clear-derivatives-blockchain-tech/
  13. Think someone drugged my breakfast this morning. It's the only thing I can come up with to justify my actions for a retail buying spree. RL, ICON, FOSL
  14. Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE:DY) Took a small position since guidance for 4th qtr isn't what analyst were hoping and the stock got hammered today.
  15. Ahh, thanks for those videos. Now beginning to see how this could be used for places like a hospital. Gives me a completely different perspective of what is going on. Am I correct with the following statement? Don't focus on the cryptocurrency value attached to to the blockchain technology. Focus on the specific blockchain technology and what it's intended to do. The release of cryptocurrency is more or less a test of the validity of the underlying blockchain technology. Companies will then use the underlying technology (the blockchain copy) for their intended use.
