    No matter how many times they try to retire it for a 'sexier' option, it proves its worth. I love the 'hog.

    Hey there 'Gades. Saw something on ZH today that I thought I'd throw up for consideration.

    "...thanks to more documents published by Wikileaks, and analyzed by the NYT, it appears that "big pharma" is once again pulling the strings, this time of the Trans Pacific Partnership, which if passed will "empower big pharmaceutical firms to command higher reimbursement rates in the United States and abroad..."

    Shady dealings, but if there's a profit to be made...

    Hope all is well with you all!

    And from the banking point of view, 20% is industry standard where we start asking for personal guarantees from small businesses. 20% seems to be the tipping point to where you're considered having enough of an interest in the business to make, or at least affect the direction of the company.

    Seems like there should be a Renegades ETF. Y'know...for those of us that would like to ride the coattails of the immense knowledge and investing savvy of this diverse group. :)

    And they wonder why consumer spending hasn't picked up. Everyone is spending their new-found dollars on Obamacare. Sorry to hear about your struggle, Maya. We're going through something similar, having to switch to a HDHP (the only plan my company now offers due to costs), and we're looking to try for another kid. It's gonna be way more expensive than the first one.

    The Credit Union I work for starts at 9.25% and tops out at 18.00% for the lowest credit score band of 600-630.

    Happy Holidays all! I may be back to lurking a bit. You guys have always been on top of things, and I now find myself with a little actual time to pay attention again. At least a little. I missed you guys... :)

    I can tell you, living in Colorado, the craft brew industry is so competitive here that they are coming up with more and more creative brews daily it seems. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout, however, I will NOT be trying...

    Glad to see you guys are all still at it. Although, it's too bad you guys hadn't made your millions over the past couple years, enough to retire to a lavish estate in the Mayan penninsula, that is.

    I think it goes "No guts, no indigestion". Does that sound right?

    Did this get moved? When I click the link, it goes to your instablog list, not the actual insta.

    I'm feeling the need to bookmark yet another Renegade thread that I no longer have time to follow!! ;-)

    Haven't you heard? This is the new way for the CME to give their 'preferred partners' good entry points on a market that has nowhere to go but up!

    What you may call manipulation, they call Preferred Pricing. ;-)

  • Sen. Chuck Schumer advocates an HFT tax to pay for the added regulatory oversight these transactions require. "If the SEC lacks the ability to oversee high frequency trading, then this needs to be corrected" via such a tax, Daniel Indiviglio writes; it might also curb equity markets' headlong rush into becoming "high-speed casinos rigged against individual investors."   [View news story]
    More likely they'd be handed a fine of two fitty...

    Thanks HT. I've been absolutely swamped at work, and barely have time to goof off anymore! Hopefully, as I get to work into a routine with the new responsibilities, I'll find time to keep up with you guys. I miss being 'in the loop'.
