  • The Grandson Project, Part III [View instapost]
    Thanks for stopping by! Appreciate the comments! Yes, I could have established a separate account in my name and made purchases with the intent to 'pass them on' to my grandson upon my death. However, having the account(s) established as custodial accounts, puts the tax burden on my 3 year old grandson. Not on me. To date, he has not had to pay any taxes on those accounts. Eventually, he will as the dividend total will put him above the IRS $1000 unearned income level. He may even qualify, as he gets older, to have that unearned income reported on his parents tax return, per IRS publication 929.

    Thanks again for the comment and stopping by! I'll be posting up a two year follow-up this fall.

    "By the way, you did not call LINE correctly as the SEC eventually showed you wrong"...

    Yeah, and you're lucky the present and recent past SEC has been asleep at the wheel. Had I been running the SEC, Hedgeye and Barron's would've been the only folder on my desk.

  • Will Windows 9 Be Able To Save Microsoft? [View article]
    Funny.

    I have one laptop running Win 8.1, two with Win 7, and two desktops with Win 7. Of the lot, the laptop with Win 8.1 is the problem child. Why in the world would either MS or HP not allow me to turn off the touch pad???? I use a wireless mouse, and every time I wake up the computer (after having to put in an annoying PIN - gotta figure out a way to get rid of that), I still need to disable the touch pad. Or I'll activate all sorts of computer crap when I type.

    Exactly. I've been 'banking' the dividends for the past several quarters.

  • Retirement Strategy: Is It Time To Dump Everything? [View article]
    I just think the market has started to outrun itself.

    Problem with cashing out a taxable account is that it creates...a tax event. Selling high, buying back (more) low in a taxable account means waiting for the prices to drop below the tax adjusted share price before repurchasing.

    Having attempted this in the past, with mixed results, I don't think I will go 100% cash. I may start selling covered calls again.

    Thanks for the article RS. I'm not fearless or fearful, but I have tossed around the idea of liquidating my taxable portfolio before the end of this year.

    Just want to know what engineer at Microsoft though it was a cool idea to change 'My Computer' to 'This PC'?

    It's annoying crap like this that caused many consumers to hate the transition from their older OS.
