    Lost 4.55% today.

    Doesn't sound like we're done yet. Rebound tomorrow, but expect more blood towards the end of the week.

    Information from the Covid fueled capitulation selloff in February - May of 2020 ended up - according to data released - with nearly 1/3rd of investors age 65 and older selling 100% of their equity holdings in 2020, and 18% of all investors doing the same: https://reversemortgagedaily.com/2020/0 ... s-in-2020/

    Will be interesting if this is dead cat Evergrande or Xi realizing he can’t actually let it collapse (interesting for Chinese economy in its own right).

    There are going to be some traders with balls of steel out there who made some bets over last 3-4 trading days that have huge windfalls riding on Xi deciding to pull this thing out of the fire.

    So I logged onto my SoFi account and saw I had MMTLP in my account. I sold my TRCH shares at end of June. Is this a mistake or because I was holding at merge date, I get them?

    It’s because you were holding on the ex dividend date. Now those shares are tradeable - but you have to hold them to get the dividend. We don’t know the value of the dividend yet.

    This commodities super cycle will be sweet. Here’s the path: commodities—> miners —> Jr Miners.

    SLB, FCX, SBSW, Vale, OXY. Most have solid dividends. The PE for SBSW is 3.5 and Vale is 4.5. Cash flow ain’t a problem.

    If the equity doesn’t appreciate, you’ll still get paid 10%+ annualized for bag holding.

    All of them. But this one has been solid for holding a week. It’s actually at 2.90 now. So about 35k.

    Call options will be exercised and converted to shares hopefully. Would love a nice rev stream via dividend with what’s upcoming

    I'm betting on any commodity that is a basic utility and has been hit with red tape in the past 20 years. We're not caught up from a green energy standpoint to be renewable energy independent, but we've been early on restricting supply through regulations. We're reliant on fossil and trying to turbocharge the economy via spending, this requires energy. Emerging economies - India, Sub Saharan Africa (Population growth rate exponential) will have to rely on fossil bc they don't have the infrastructure or capital to become green, demand is going to increase.

    If natural gas comes down another 15% I'll buy. Half of the electricity in the US is generated from Natural Gas turbines.

    Transportation costs are an issue too.

    Rates can't be hiked, it'll limit short term lending during a supply chain shortage.

    We're going to keep printing money, and the commodity markets love money.

    Ibonds are jumping from a 3.54% interest rate to a 7.12% interest rate. Inflation is booming.

    Since they are tax-free if used for higher education, I might look into mixing some of this with the 529s as a hedge.
    My Ibond knowledge is limited- Anyone have an opinion on that?

    That's where I keep part of my emergency fund. If you are going to buy some, do it in November, not now. Otherwise you'll get the lower interest rate for the next 6 months.
