    Use Lightbeam/Collusion to see just how bad your data is being tracked and you can also take control over it :

    Costco sells Mexican Coke in glass bottles. At least in Southern California, not sure about other ones as I have no experience with them.

    So we need a new vehicle or index to capture this low payout ratio. Wonder if it's possible?

    CRLPX

    Cranky Low Payout Ratio Index

    Would also be curious to see the Debt/Equity numbers as well if there is a correlation also

  • 17.8%-Yielding CEFL - Diversification On Top Of Diversification, Or Fees On Top Of Fees? [View article]
    For those that want to hold long term, a good strat I borrowed from someone here is to wait for the RSI on any of the "L" funds to dip below 30, then buy, wait for it to hit 50 or 70, then sell.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Love Kickstarter!

    Has done so much to spur organic innovation in our economy over the past 5 years.

    I need to go over there and do some more funding.

    Seriously, Total Recall is becoming a reality (pun intended).

    On the other hand, this purchase is so 1990s .com bubble-esque.

    Yep you are right Tales, it's been around forever, the problem with bringing it to market was always that it made too many of the wearers have the equivalent of motion sickness (nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness, headaches).

    So now I wonder what Sony and Oculus have done to crack this code and make it marketable to the masses.
