  • Why I Will Start Social Security At Age 62 [View article]
    The less I need, the less time I need to wait.
    The less I need, the less risk I need to take.
    The less I need, the less yield I need to "chase".

    Bloody brilliant!

    I don't believe a "dismissal" is the same as an "acquittal". Any lawyers care to clarify?

  • 3 Things To Like About Atlantic Power Corporation [View article]
    FYI: my Roth shares were getting taxed, so i sold there and bought something else, but bought this in my taxed tradeking acct and will let my tax guy deal with the forms next year. YMMV. HTH.

  • Conversation on Coca-Cola takes a private twist [View news story]
    Interest rates are low now. I can't imagine WB using flexible rate loans that would increase in the future. Also, I can't imagine Coke's current debt would be variable rate either. So, I think interest rates are a non issue.

    I think WB could handle the deal, but WB probably questions the possible fall out from health concerns, changes in eating habits, etc. affecting long-term growth prospects. If he does nothing now, he just has a huge cash cow throwing him dividends every quarter. If takes Coke private, then he has those headaches to take on and pass on to his business heirs.

    Long KO with a whopping 40 share stake. :)
