Good morning. Have you been able to research the HAS management 'feud' ??
TELL … looks like there will be some movement….IMHO.

“The big development is that Tellurian has finalized liquefied natural gas sale and purchase agreements with Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A, NYSE:RDS.B) subsidiary Shell NA LNG.“
October will likely follow in the foot steps of September concerning Market volatility, as I am fearful of the negative likes of...government and debt, inflation (HYPERINFLATION), U.S. / Global economies and the Market / FED complacency, as the FED has lost control...hence just look at their chatter on inflation?? Yes..October could be be very scary indeed imho.
Adjusted my portfolio of investments to cushion against a potential Market correction of 20%-30% and economic collapse due to all above aforementioned negatives.
REIT's and TIPS are some tools for reducing the loss of assets..they'll cushion the blow if or when the economic collapse and potential hyperinflation rear their ugly heads. The FED will have to take action much sooner than they and many others think.
Cheers and best regards

@Novavax Op Warp Speed I can't disagree with your points. Not sure about a 20-30% correction. I'm still heavily invested but anticipate a drop as you do. Still, TINA.
@Novavax Op Warp Speed and where would you propose reinvesting your proceeds? China, Europe? I think not, no, US still best place to invest in.

@wiredlitigator As long as the incompetent current administration is in power in America the economy is in dire straights without a doubt. Their budgetary, tax and proposed regulations may well lead to an economic recession. Their politics are not designed to create overall growth and prosperity but aimed a redistribution of wealth IMHO.
