  • The Case For A Black Tuesday [View article]
    Frankly, whether you are proven exactly right or wrong, I really appreciate and admire your specificity. I get so sick of qualifications and disclaimers tacked onto predictions and recommendations. Refreshing to read someone who is not more concerned about covering his ass than advising.

  • This Is When The Bear Growls [View article]
    Thank you for pointing this out.

    Let's try to have just one oasis from snarky replies on social media, please. I mean this is not politics or religion, after all.

    This is (or should be) a site where people try to help each other by sharing information and opinion. Which can be wrong or right. No one is forcing you (one) to follow such advice.

    It's your money, folks, do as you like. But try not ridicule others if you disagree with their thoughtful conclusions. It's counterproductive and meaningless.

    Well, my friend, I doubt there are many people over 50 and still walking this earth who do not have a laundry list of things they wish they had done differently in life. So don't feel like the Lone Ranger (as kids used to say).

    As I always say, "I always know what I should have done after the cards are dealt. It's beforehand that I have my problem."

    "No Signs Of Impending Doom"?

    There rarely are.

  • Washington State's Minimum Wage Experience [View article]
    Really? Is this another example of "settled science"?

    Actually, I for one cannot agree. For the reasons I stated.

  • Washington State's Minimum Wage Experience [View article]
    What exactly is a "living wage"?

    What may be a living wage for you may not be for me, or vice versa, depending on your life style, responsibilities, spending habits, etc.

    If I am a 20-year-old college student living as a dependent at home and working a summer job for pocket money and you are 40 supporting a family of 3, what constitutes a wage I can live on will differ greatly from your requirements.

    This kind of one-size-fits-all attempt to homogenize wages never works fairly and never will.

    I live near Seattle. And I can tell you this: The day my server or whatever gets 15 bucks an hour is the day I stop tipping.

    The current, flimsy rationale for "gratuities" will be obliterated.

    I'm sure many others feel the same.

    Perhaps you should consider that in your argument.

  • My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 6th Birthday Report [View article]

    If the stock goes UP: Why didn't I buy a thousand shares instead of a lousy hundred.

    If the stock goes DOWN: Why did I buy that piece of #^%~.

    C'est la vie.

    Sometimes this old adage is the most profitable advice: "Don't just do something. Stand there."

    Go to finra.org

    Fil lout paperwork for mediation/arbitration, naming Scottrade, Inc. as respondent.

    That's waht I did and it's in works.

    May not recoup much but it's your only shot.

    I am not involved in a class action and doubt one will ever happen, since the co. has no resources to attach. I have initiated the mediation/arbitration vs my broker thru FINRA. Different matter.

    Arbitration or mediation thru FINRA does not require an attorney. In fact I am representing myself. My lawyer says that is best anyway. Only cost is a reasonable administration fee. Well worth it for me. My lawyer thinks the likely outcome will be a settlement before arbitration.

    Correct that a class action will not yield much relief, if it happens at all. I have, at my attorney's advice, initiated arbitration proceedings vs my broker. Best chance for redress.
