In fairness, the S&P isn't "best and brightest" companies, and isnt a slam-dunk to invest in. The Dow creates a manageable list of companies for an individual investor to follow and weight as they see fit.The distinction might not matter much for mutual funds, as charging 0.5-2.0% of assets held gives you the ability to have a lot of resources to evaluate 500-2,000 companies.S&P is a better proxy for the state of broad economic growth, but as an investment benchmark it...
I actually bought some short term options myself last week, after largely switching to a longer term investment profile. My take was that the stock will be at $150 by July, so it is pretty low risk. I would take a 10% gain in a week or hold out for 100% at expiration, not worrying about which outcome happens. Recent volatility relative to the broader market seems to validate the thinking of shorter-term mindset with Apple. It wasn't much money I put into it, but would...
$143 is easy... I'm still hoping for the Trillion Dollar Company. ($170)Will be interesting how the global economy impacts things.
Here's to hoping for a reasonably priced 1TB drive.
Are they doing this to mitigate currency risk on their holdings, or just to tap multiple markets?
Funny, these videos make me less interested in owning a drone rather than more. When I first saw someone flying a Phantom I had a period of a month or so where I wanted one as a bit of a toy. These videos with the fisheye lenses and jumpy panning effects limit my interest considerably though. Now, as a reward for watching the video I am getting DJI ads on every page I visit... Further turning me off.
It seems to be underway. The Manhattan Village Store used to be one of the worst I had been in, but they expanded before Christmas and really change the tempo dramatically.I generally don't like change, but I think the Apple Store motif is overdone at this point. The original clarity of the vision: iPods on the right, Macs on the left-- is gone. I actually wish they had more accessories; there are simple things that I need to support my computer that aren't easily...
Depends on what you are using it for. Time Machine is great for snapshots and version control, but when you look at things like the ransomware Bit Locker, that type of backup is useless-- you either need a pulled backup that your computer only has read-only rights to, or you need an offline backup like rotated USB drives.The GP sounded like his use was version control as it was a development machine.
I will admit I thought it was odd that there were no references to Monster when the Beats deal was announced; I thought they still had a stake in the company. BUT, the reality is that Beats of 2014 was purchased by Apple not for their hipster headphones, but for the curated playlists. Many analysts valued the headphone business at under $500MM, which basically makes it sound like Monster came out ok in the end. I'm sure they have some reasonable claim though; he should...
Does rotating the unit to portrait fix it? I have to do that on a number of Safari pages to get it responsive again...
