    WaPo article on that topic from a couple days ago: https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...=.6addb7fa7874

    clifs notes version: china can makes things difficult but their percentage share of production has gone from high 90's in 2010 to I think 71% now. That, coupled with difficulties they would have regulating trade in the materials, make the whole thing less likely to be a huge problem than most believe.

    It’s one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. I watched it recently after people here were raving about it in some thread. About 20 minutes into the movie my wife was like, WTF are you watching this shit? I couldn’t answer, ha. Right before she said that I was thinking how I wasted my money renting it. Frat boy shit.

    Well shot, well acted: sure. Beyond that I have no idea why people like the characters.

    It really isn't a movie, it's better understood as a play that was put on screen. It's a character piece, a small slice of weird situation. And yeah, you are absolutely not supposed to like anyone, there is no hero, no true main character you fall for.

    If I stuck with it and watched the whole thing, yeah, most likely I’d get the appeal of it all (not saying I’d actually like it though) and understand what the writer was trying to say, but I really fucking hated the first 20 minutes. I didn’t give it a chance at all. And I’m fine with that.

    It was depressing to me, kind of like Death of a Salesman in the portrayal of a futile struggle. The underbelly of capitalism.

    That's exactly what it is. Death of a Salesman is a good comparison.

    Alec Baldwin's character has been taken as a template for a certain subset of finance/sales bros. Much like Gordon Gekko from Wall Street or anything from American Psycho, meant to be parody, has been taken as a template.

    That makes sense, but while his 5 minutes on screen were powerful, it just seemed an odd way to characterize the movie.

    Still no one with the balls to play in the beyond meat trade. I thought when it retraced from 150 or so it was lights out and the shorts would pile in, but it hit 200 today.

    The only reason it went over 100 is shorts. There're too many of them so they squeeze each other. Has nothing to do with the business.

    Where would you put 50% of your portfolio now if you wanted to keep it safe(ish) for retirement. Or, at least safe for the next 2yrs (after election cycle). I'd like to lock up some of these gains. This is stuck in my 401k options

    Bonds? - US or Global are my options
    Treasury Money Market?
    "Stable Value"?
