Re: A reminder for those worried about valuation

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]

Re: Corrected SSA-1099 for 2018

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: Blackrock proposes helicopter money

Re: EGO Landscaping Tools Review

So you bought the 40V trimmer with it's own battery, rather than buy the 80V trimmer that could use the same battery as your mower? Did you go with GreenWorks for that as well?

Goldman and Master Card are irrelevant here with no meaningful face to the customer or the merchant, so Apple will replace them as soon as they become annoying. It will be beautiful to watch.
