  • Gramercy: Is This Small Cap The Greatest Alpha Opportunity In REITs? [View article]
    "Get mortgages in the 5% range during a time of rising interest rates."

    Why do we so blithely assume interest rates must rise? The 10-year is off 50 basis points in less than 2 months and back to 2.5% this morning. The Fed has an incoming chief who appears to be in hurry to tighten policy. One could make a pretty easy case we'll be sitting with ZIRP three years from now.

  • New Guitar Investment And New Guitar [View instapost]
    I should add that I owned a beautiful Gibson SG in college and sold it for a woefully low price to help fund some silly trip that I can't even remember now.

    "Are" is probably the wrong word as I play little to none nowadays. I do still have my Fender from back in the day, though there's little special about my particular model.
