  • barry?
  • Folks, have I missed something here.

    Clearly, this cannot be the result of anything that Trump may have done.

    Did barry pop up in front of a teleprompter today?

  • Exactly, and that was my implication to Paul, who seems to be what I call a ticker tape watcher, both financially and politically.
    The drop on Christmas eve, did not upset the most excellent Christmas dinner we had here, with 10 other friends.
    After too many meetings I finally learned, you win some you lose some. Some days are better than others, and decisions are made by those who attend the meetings.
    Not ticker tape watchers yapping in the side lines.

  • You could take that view, or you could be practical and face reality.
    In my post I said we learn, some days are better than others. We could expand on that thought, and conclude some years are better than others.
    Previously you have said you are living the dream. But if you expect the markets to have a steady upward climb, I would conclude you are a dreamer. Markets go up and down. When they are down, to quote the world's greatest investor " All the good things you wanted to buy, are now on sale. What a wonderful buying opportunity " WB.

    Further, some stocks, if based mainly on capitol gains, do need a steady increase in share price, to make $$, but as has been demonstrated, can lead to some creative bookkeeping. But quality dividend stocks, do not require an increasing share value, if paying out decent dividends.

    We need a more long term view of the markets, to make an informed conclusion. Something you are not prepared to do, based on what you have written so far.
    As a socialist, you have not mentioned the low unemployment rates, which should bring some happiness to so many. Rather you have been focused on a capitalist point of view, and then buggering up your interpretation.

    The markets usually look ahead for input. Given the House has much control over financial activity, maybe some are spooked when considering 03 January.

  • Re: barry?
  • Paul, I am detecting a trend from your end. Doom and gloom, misery and shame. To quote Hee Haw. Coupled with short term thinking. Good luck with that.

    Frankly the Sidney to Hobart Yacht race has more to offer for me.

  • Paul, do you follow sail boat racing. And or do you have a sail boat?
    Maybe you can help me with a couple of things. I noticed exhaust smoke, and water coming from the back of Black Jack, while it was racing. How can that be? Two. How many spreaders does Black Jack have?

  • Re: barry?
  • Paul, I wish to acknowledge your civil discourse regarding this non-political topic.

    We DO have something in common.

  • Re: barry?
  • I was thinking the same thing.
    We got a civil and what would appear to be, honest answer, to my off beat question.
    I had figured looking up the race info was simple enough, but the questions I asked would require some in depth knowledge, and not readily available thru Google.

  • Re: barry?
  • Well thought, Mike.

    I'm willing to discourse politely with Paul about tractors, etc., despite our probably insurmountable political differences.
