Re: Biggest Number in Medicare-4-All Plan

Dear Notehound,

As I say, if stockpiles of wealth are destroyed (or chased away), then the plan is imperfect, as the wealth it depends on to function is no longer present. Regardless of one's political or moral impressions or [more]

Re: Biggest Number in Medicare-4-All Plan

I found Warren's proposal to tax the wealth -- the total wealth -- of those worth more than $50 million at 2%, and the wealth of those worth more than $1 billion at 3%, provocative. Steep, but doable, and something at least some billionaires have [more]

Re: Mid-Month Portfolio Update

Thank you Saul, for your kind reply. I appreciate your clarifications. I regret I was not more clear in my question, as I was asking only about your mid-month update trade regarding ZS, and not your initiating positions. I agree that your [more]

Re: Mid-Month Portfolio Update

Saul,

Your ruthless momentum is part of the recipe for your remarkable outperformance, unless I miss my guess. By that I mean that you sold down ZS substantially because momentum in the bounce back wasn't there, but it was for [more]

Re: What I've done today

I sold 20% of my AYX holdings and purchased AYX options with the money, some today, some at the end of market yesterday. AYX is down 3% or so further as I write this from when I purchased those options.

After ZS went on sale, I did the same. [more]

Re: Corrected SSA-1099 for 2018

My apologies. The Social Security benefit isn’t much, less than my Medicare premiums, and I’m sure their numbers are correct. Now that I’ve done the amended return, the difference for having received about $800 more than had been stipulated for my [more]

AJ,

Quite right -- the form (in all caps, but I'd prefer not to shout) is titled:

Corrected SSA-1099 for 2018

I just received a form indicating that my benefits are now thought to have been higher than they were when I first received my SSA-1099. So, now that I have more benefits than I filed for, what am I supposed to do? I assume I have to find a form and [more]

Re: EGO Landscaping Tools Review
