9/7     You know how they say stocks always outperform everything else over
        30 years?  We may now be entering that period where it underperforms
        for several years.
        \_ What will it underperform? Real estate?
           \_ bonds, CDs - assuming you bought them three months ago
              \_ Heck, if I can go back in time, why not just buy winning
                 lottery tickets?
                 \_ hey, you asked me about historical performance
                    \_ "...will it..." What part of that sentence is past tense?
                       \_ okay fine.  why don't we just say CDs may outperform
                          stocks from the present time.
                          \_ They might, but I doubt it. What do you think?
                             I am about 20% in muni bonds and 5% in CDs, but
                             the rest is in the market.
              \_ The bond market is not looking too good right now. All
                 analysts say blue chips are the place to be. They are
                 historically cheap.
                 \_ is it time yet to buy buy buy?
                    \_ Not as good as a year ago (when they were even
                       cheaper) but still good, yes.
                       \_ That is what I think, too. -pp
        \_ You can make more money in the slave trade.  Just join the UN.

7[31    Suppose you have a few hundred thousand dollars in the bank earning
        minimum interest rate and you're not sure whether you're going to
        buy a house in 1-5 years. Should one put that money in a more
        risky place like Vanguard ETFs and index funds, given that the
        horizon is only 1-5 years?
        \_ I have a very similar problem, in that I have a bunch of cash

5/17    Tech stocks at all time high & Bay Area traffic and housing crisis
        is now worse than 2001. BUBBLE 2.0 BEWARE!!!
        \_ This time it is no bubble, at least not yet. Wake me up again
           when the Nasdaq hits an inflation adjusted record.
        \_ I don't know if this bubble qualifies as a tech bubble or a bubble
           at all.  Last weekend I saw hiring signs at McDonald's, Macy's and

2/16    Stocks for the long run? Maybe not:
        \_ um, ok, so what are better alternative investments?
           \_ Real Estate? Gold? Bonds? CDs?
              They all whooped stocks in the last decade.
              I believe in a balanced approach.

1/18    I own a bunch of NFLX stocks bought at several different periods
        (from high $200 all the way down to $80). I dumped a few and
        still have a few. Why the hell is Reid Hastings still making
        $500,000/year? How do I join the pending NFLX Class Action

12/9    A public company (NASDAQ/NYSE) needs to publicly disclose
        important information right? Is there a way to find data that
        shows who owns most of the stocks, when they're dumping (to measure
        their confidence in the company), and how many people are shorting?
        \_ It has been a few years since I took a business organizations
           course, but from what I remember, there isn't a requirement for
