    Also, the top 1% has a networth of 4.4mil. So, owning 1.1 "liquid" and lets say another 300k in RE equity, puts todd and wife around one third of what it would take to be in the 1% in their mid 40s. Again, not that outrageous, and certainly not close to 0.1% territory by any metric (he'd have to be earning around 2mil/yr to qualify based on income fyi).
    And the top 1% of net worth individuals has an average age of? Hint, its almost 70.

    Dude it is 100% outrageous to expect that as any sort of reality for 99.9% of people by 40 years old. Over half the country can't make it 3 weeks between paychecks at any age let alone 40.

    Don't you assholes have a thread to argue about college degrees and why you don't have any money? Maybe the "Whats the number" thread?

    Tried to add to the ATOS YOLO position, tried to sell a boatload (50) of the 7/16 $6P @$2.6 but never got filled after it bounced back from 3% down. Even chased the bid down towards the eod to $2.4 and never got filled.

    Made back a ton of ground on CC that were deep ITM, have quite a few positions that I want to get called away but just can't seem to make it happen.

    first one. We aren't quite at the bottom (the other one you mentioned). My father still thinks i build skyscrapers, dams and bridges (no one realizes structural/geotech engineers are a thing apparently). Its always so disappointing to people when i describe what i actually do- make shit flow downhill.

    This is TGR....there are two police behaving threads ONE GOOD and ONE BAD....but both are littered with BAD....

    My suggestion....start a new thread called "TGR daytraders thread"....seriously. will weed out the general market folks and the boomers too of course.

    haha, it doesn't bother me that much. The daily chatter mixed with larger market/financial planning ideas is a great blend IMO. Leave it to Bunny to come in and fuck it up after a Meme hurt his feelings.

    Speaking of Bunny, did we ever get the ticker for his super secret squirrel fund that he was outperforming everything with???

    And they got there with a college degree, through hard work, frugal spending, and responsible financial planning for 20+ years?

    -Actively manages a $67,524 portfolio

    -Spends 4-5 hours a day researching stonks and options

    -Up 48.1% in the last 14 months and six days

    -Bangs his wife regularly, beats the kids occasionally

    -15 Twitter followers

    -Is an idiot

    Been trying to buy more EPD for the last couple weeks, was determined to buy at $23 for a bit, moved up to $25 yesterday and still no dice. I may just throw it in XOM like Lee says, I just have trouble buying at that price when I’m in my 310 at $40.85. It’s a state of mind I have to get out of, I know it’ll go higher and I’ve also read a dividend bump is probably coming. FCF at these prices will be through the roof, especially when Guyana comes on-line.

    Up on all my sold covered calls, I always struggle whether to buy them back or let it ride. That quick cash is tempting, but I’m gonna ride these.

    That Oct. 15th $30 strike on CCL looks pretty good when I read stuff like this:

    “Some of the biggest borrowers during the pandemic, according to figures from financial-data provider FactSet, have been those hurt most by it. Carnival Corp ., the world's largest cruise operator, had around $33 billion of total debt as of Feb. 28, almost triple what it had near the end of 2019. Boeing Co .'s total debt more than doubled during the pandemic, to $64 billion, while Delta Air Lines Inc .'s doubled to around $35 billion.

    With cruises canceled around the world, raising money early last year wasn't easy for Carnival. Chief Financial Officer David Bernstein said he spent two weeks in March 2020 to try to put together a bond sale, only for debt investors to balk because the company wasn't also planning to issue more stock.

    It took him another 10 days working nearly around the clock to put together a deal that included a stock offering. In early April last year, Carnival issued $4 billion of secured bonds with an 11.5% interest rate—a level typically associated with businesses with rock-bottom credit ratings—along with $500 million of stock and about $2 billion of convertible bonds.

    "Somehow I managed to raise $6.5 billion," Mr. Bernstein said. "I was amazed."

    From then on, though, as investor demand for corporate debt rebounded, borrowing money got easier. Carnival sold bonds or obtained loans from investors five more times over the next 10 months, finally issuing $3.5 billion of unsecured bonds in February at a 5.75% rate. In April, Mr. Bernstein said Carnival had raised enough money to last until it resumes full operations.”

    With the stock dilution and debt Carnival is a ways down the road. I’m betting I get to keep my shares and the $325.

    Wrong moron Benny. My old boss graduated from UMass boston. Bought a 200k 2 family and 25 years later it's worth over 2.5M. She also made a mint on that UMass degree.

    Started digging into this TRCH nonsense after hours. Seems a bit complex and nuanced. Reverse merger to get another company (MMATF) on nasdaq and share holders as of 6/22 get special dividend of sale proceeds from old company selling off oil and gas leases/projects. Could be anywhere from $1-$50 per share? Oh and of course a short squeeze is imminent

    Fuck it Iím inÖmaybe.

    BTW, I too would like to know this Benny aggregate ETF. I looked for CRMDGN and couldn’t find it. I’m pretty fluent in SFB fish/life lingo, but Benny finance advice eludes me.
