1/25    Is there a site that tells you the % of people shorting
        on a particular stock? I'm trying to see if I can gauge
        "confidence level", that sort of thing.
        \_ http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/intc/short-interest
           I'm not sure how to read this, I'm guessing the higher
           "days to cover" the more short activities there are?
        \_ http://www.shortsqueeze.com/?symbol=intc&submit=Short+Quote%99
        \_ days to cover means how many days it'll take to cover assuming
           the volume of the given day. it's a ratio of number of
           shorts on that day divided by the volume that day.
           the higher the number the more interest there are on
           shorting. high means not confident about the stock.

        not just my wife!
        \_ People have been using the term "millionaire" as a synonym for
           "rich" for a very long time.  But there's this little thing called
           inflation.  Having a million dollars in 1900 is roughly equivalent

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?

1/16    Fred Wilson says you should focus on the cash value of your
        options, not the percentages:

        \_ Or at least, so says a VC trying increase his profit margin...
        \_ A VC wants to keep as much of the stock for themselves (and give
           as little to employees as possible).  That maximizes their return.
