WannaBe: Kings wallop'd them Boston Bruins last night 9-2, what is really strange is that nine different players scored goal for LA. With 9 goals scored, you'd think someone had a hat trick, or two goals scored. But nope!

Feb-07-16  chessmoron: Happy New Year!, <Wabbit>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <chessmoron> Thanks!! (where's my red envelopes)??????
Feb-07-16  chessmoron: Here's you go:

FYI, it's empty.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <chessmoron> Oh, geeze, I was gonna retire on that!! =))
Feb-08-16  Jim Bartle: <I believe all players are allowed to wear the visor, if any, of their choice.>

But I have never seen a QB wear one of those dark visor where you can't see his face.

Now maybe they limit vision a little, so the QB can't see the field as well.

But it would seem to be a big advantage when DBs and linebackers can't look at his eyes on pass plays. It would add to the deception.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Jim Bartle> After some googling, I found out that in order to wear tinted/darken visor, you must have medical clearance.

If you want to wear clear visor, go ahead.

Feb-08-16  Jim Bartle: Interesting. Thanks.

  WannaBe: Looks like I can kiss off that $12.25 strike call option expiring this Friday.

Good-bye, adios, sayonara!

  WannaBe: Purely amazing, at the 7 minute mark, you can see he broke an hair on the bow, very young I. Perlman.

Absolutely pure gold.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Joshua Bell is famous for finishing a concerto with half of the bow hairs gone. Great Tchaikovsky!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: It's rare that an audience applauds between movements but in the Tchaikovsky above the audience breaks out in a huge applause for Perlman after the first movement.

  WannaBe: Sheeeeeeeet, this is nothing:

You know how many Chinese Restaurant actually have egg inside their egg roll?! We've been doing this for centuries!

Don't even get me started on Spring Rolls, never found any Spring inside, either.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Must I instruct a Chinese man about Chinese food?

Spring Rolls are made only in the spring.

There are no such things as egg rolls. It's just a Spring roll made after Spring. I know because I invented take-out.

  TheFocus: Y'all didn't even make mention of summer rolls.
Feb-11-16  thegoodanarchist: TWTR is under $15.

Anyone wanna catch that falling knife?

FWIW, I would never buy TWTR. I don't see how retail investors could make money in the stock. Traders yes, but not investors.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Total utter blood-bath on Wall Street. My portfolio have gone down 40% in the last 6 month.


Feb-11-16  thegoodanarchist: I am about 54% cash right now. Just waiting for more reasonable valuations.

By any measure, valuations are too high. Use PE, CAPE, dividend yield, EV:EBITDA, Market Cap:GVA, what-have-you.

My portfolio is mostly dividend aristocrats, so I am not down 40% over all, but I took a bath on 3 or 4 holdings.

Fortunately I got some good advice to stop buying stocks last year.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <thegoodanarchist> 401K & (Roth) IRA doing OK. Shouldn't have bought CHK & X on my trading account...

At least X is very volatile, making some money back selling covered calls on that. Bought F 2 years ago, and held onto it, but it's now down ~4.00 per share from my original purchase price. Ugh!!

Feb-11-16  thegoodanarchist: <Wannabe>

JNJ, my favorite stock, closed 2015 at $102.72.

Today it closed at $101.70, down almost exactly 1% on the year.

Wish I had bought more on Jan. 20th, when it got below $95.

This is when those defensive stocks really shine.
