If you still exist in the metaworld, your 28 year old stockbroker (now 37), didn't really help much, nor hurt you.
Nice dividends, but
CLCT went private in 2021. Probably did well?
COP has done little
MCD would have been a good one
PFE up about 100% in 9 years...so about an 8% return + the dividend.
VZ...nope, no good.
Looking at CLCT, the chart shows it doesn't move much in price and every blue moon they raise the dividend. I just don't care for the lack of decent research available on it.
Also, while the industry has a ridiculously high mark up on its' products, it will tank if the economy does first. Or who knows, maybe people start selling off their collectibles and they make more money? (nope, just checked the charts again, when the market drops, so does their stock).
Maybe he gets a commission from it. There are certainly stocks with much higher dividends than that list but he says the key is the consistency. Being 28, he can afford a long-term perspective.
I am going to use your earth years age conversion, much better than dog years. Hope you don't mind.
Never heard of CLCT. Looks interesting, but nobody follows it. Nice dividend though.
What are you talking about? I'm only 14 in earth years.
I think that attitude is the 9th sign of old age!
Anyway, keep in mind that this guy is 28 so he doesn't have the advantage of your, let's say life experience.
Collector's Universe CLCT
possibly Verizon VZ
edit - he suggests these due to their steady, dependable performance.
I'd love to see the list. This may be even more exciting than a tryst!
Hold onto that secret tryst fantasy. It is probably far superior to any real secret tryst you might have.
And, I renewed my paid status today, my arm was twisted to attempt to save another true long. So, I can post anywhere now.
I will be back on your board next time it's cold out or I sit in front of my computer for more than a couple of minutes a day.
My broker gave me a list of his top dividend stock suggestions. I was going to save it for you. I'll send it to you, if you're interested. I did ask him if he would make out better than I would on the deals and of course he gave me the usual BS about my best interests, etc.
Hey, long time Derfie! I am busy catching up. If it's any consolation to either you or Churak, according to my PM's I am either the product of an incestuous relationship or a female body part that, while it has a mind of it's own, has no measurable IQ!
My theory is that the mullets have found one Admn with a weakness for moonshine or crack and they are taking full advantage of the situation. Will Matt even recognize Hubville when he returns?
I would say he's screwed until and if Matt comes home. Much like working at a place that hires a new boss and you're not one of his hires, churak no longer carries any mojo. In fact, posting to me probably costs him status daily.
Good thing for you, the admin don't know this board exists.
So, it seems that Churak has recently forfeited his golden key to upper class status here. Is there a bidding process for the masses or will the key be retired like the jersey of a much revered pro athlete?
Yes. She allowed me to take her to dinner nightly. It was nice as we don't get to talk all that much. She is so much like me it's scary. But she would deny it.
I guess there are factors that point towards political motivation, but attacking innocent citizens seems like a poor way to protest.
I am wondering if there will be background checks for everyone that purchases a pressure cooker or bottle of ammonia after this? It will be another distraction so that our government doesn't need to spend time solving the real problems we face. Even our mourning is politicized these days, another sad comment on our culture.
You got to spend time with Daughter Derf too? You did have the best week ever then! I hope you spoiled her appropriately! I will catch up on the happenings in the Grotto later tonight.
It may start happening more frequently as more and more people are displeased with our government, and add to that movies advocating rebellion.
The Masters was great. And spending time with my daughter was a very nice added bonus.
I hope you had a great time at the Masters! I wanted Cabrera to win just because his swing reminds me of some regular duffer, and he's an old guy! My second choice was Day because he's married to a local girl but it was Scott's day, I guess.
I'll become and official Hubber again when I have more time for it.
Today was an awful day for Boston and the country. We live in a violent culture and it seems that any weapon will do. I just wonder why all this is suddenly starting to happen so frequently.
LOL! That's just wrong.
Did I ridicule you? That doesn't sound like me at all.
First, since you ridiculed me for paying again, I have let my paid membership lapse and maybe I won't renew it.
Anyway, I wanted to tell you to have a great time this week and I hope you run into this guy:
One day, a man was golfing when he hit his ball into the woods. When he went to retrieve it, he found that it had hit a small man in green tights.
"I'm so sorry!" the man said.
"Don't worry about it. Anyway, you caught me. I'm a leprechaun and you have managed to stop me. You get three wishes."
"Oh, no, I don't want the wishes. Just as long as you're okay." The leprechaun thought the man was so nice he decided to grant three wishes for him. He gave him unlimited money, terrific health, and a great sex life. The man came back to the golf course the next year and recognized that same leprechaun.
"How're you doing?" asked the leprechaun.
"Oh, terrific. Everytime I stick my hand in my pocket a 100 dollar bill comes out and I've eaten nothing but Snickers bars for a year and I'm at my ideal weight and can run a mile faster than anyone."
"How's your sex life?" asked the leprechaun.
"Fantastic! I'm up to twice a week now!"
"Twice a week? Why so little? I gave you a great sex life wish!"
"Hey, it's not bad for a priest!"
Well, that's when it all started actually. Some pumper clown took the name Gone4ever and I was upset because people kept PMing me asking why I was pumping gray sheet garbage. So I asked the powers to make her change her name back to Narnia. That wasn't possible so that is the reason for the new name. And then someone started following me and deleting posts and then I was restricted due to the number of deleted posts. I narrowly avoided time in the clink. I don't do well in enclosed spaces.
You're not? What the heck did you do? Apparently it was bad as you've had to change your name. Did you get a new social security number as well?
I am not in the good graces of the powers that be around here. I'll apply though.
You should apply to be mod then read it to me.
You should ask one of the mods to check the deleted posts for that person, it might be interesting. I was thinking it was someone you knew and he/she was providing a place for you to post your stock selections.
Edit - I didn't mean mods I meant Ihub Admins.
Apparently it was started by The_Fast_One, who was then booted outta here. Weird because that person had a lot of posts before setting up this board and immediately getting booted. I wonder what info was deleted from here?
Seriously, I have about 20 abandoned boards marked. Sometimes it's interesting to see what is posted on them when something finally is. I think there are more abandoned boards on the Hub than active ones. Do you have any idea who started this one or what the purpose was?
You don't have to. I'm not sure what the purpose of it was, but I'm not kicking you out. Just curious as to how you came across it?
I posted to Susie on your other board last night. I am just not always around during the day. So, we will abandon this board again!
So, what's the story here? Is this our very own little secret rendouvous place? Are we hiding from the others by posting here? I don't recall banning you from my other board. Does this all coincide with your name change? You're now living a secret life? If so, we could be doing this all by PM's and you could be sending me pics as well.
Most who have researched MTL have concluded that she was, at the least, bi-polar. And, it is true, I cannot imagine losing even one child. She endured losing 3 of her 4 before adulthood. But, and this isn't meant to sound cold, it was not so uncommon in those days. There were not many families that did not lose one or more children to disease. It was part of life and more easily endured because it was so common.
If you are a history buff, and I recall that you are, she is an interesting character.
Looks like the market opened and closed today and stocks either went up or down and some had news. Exciting stuff, sorry to have missed all the action, not!
No, the spousal_unit can cook. Just not a sedar. The spousal_unit does not do religious events. More of a golden rule type.
How do you know Lincoln's wife was crazier? I know she was put into an asylum, but who knows what it took to get that in those days? Apparently, she didn't handle the loss of a child well. I thought they both suffered from depression?
I thought his acting was well done. I found the movie interesting, but wish they had covered a bit more of his life.
I am sure the spousal has many other attributes that you find much more appealing than cooking then. You should have the meal catered and do a Sedar. Your perspective as an adult will be much different. Enjoy the wine!
Just watched Lincoln. His spousal was much crazier than she was portrayed in the movie and we all know Sally can play crazy, not sure why they downplayed that aspect of Lincoln's pressured life. Anyway, I thought it was an excellent movie.
BWHAHAHAHAHA!! My spousal doesn't know a lamb shank from a hedge hog.
No, I haven't done a Sedar in years. I used to hate them as a kid because they took so long and I'd be starving.
Perhaps I'll have a glass of wine and call it done.
I can't dispute your allegations.
We are suing our Groundhog here. He predicted an early spring. Last night 4 inches of snow with another 3 on the way tonight. I think we have a strong case.
No Passover- is your spousal cooking something special and won't you have special wine? I dated a Jewish guy and the traditions are beautiful. You shouldn't skip them.
BWHAHAHAHAHA!!! You renewed your subscription here??? SUCKER!!!!
Which holiday do you speak of? For Groundhog's Day I rooted around under the blankets in my bed, then slowly arose to see if I would find my shadow.
Just call me Lemming. I will come back, I just took the summer off and let my Ihub lapse but I have given in a renewed so I will post there again.
How have you been - doing anything special for the Holiday?
Of course it was. No one ever follows my lead.
Well you ran off so I thought I should emulate the master. Was that wrong?
So how come you ran away from the other board? Did we finally scare you off?
Darn, it would be more interesting if you were clairvoyant. Waiting for someone to leave the room and then talking about them is so completely normal and boring.
Nice catching up, Derf. It's been awhile. I need to go now, maybe we can talk again soon - say HiYa to the Grotto for me!
clairvoyant? No, I just wait for people to leave the room then talk about them.
I am not an Ibox expert, generally I just hide them so maybe you could take the same approach with your package. Just keep it hidden.
So you give wise advice to the departed? Are you clairvoyant?
And I spelled clairvoyant without hearing google groan! Proud moment.
An onion a day would keep everyone away!
I was doing fine until we started discussing my lack of package space.
So, tell me about your friend. If an apple a day kept the doctor away, what would an onion do?
I have much wisdom to impart. Although most of my wisdom is more useful if you depart.
I only follow boards that are never posted on. It gives me a sense of accomplishment to log in once a week and see that I am all caught up on my reading here. I just hate it when someone actually posts and I really need to read.
How have you been Mr. Derf?
Yes, we could discuss my good friend who married a doctor a couple of years ago. Things were fine at first and then, for some unknown reason, she started eating an apple a day. And, well, you know what happened next. I have been consoling her. Do you have any wisdom to impart?
I would, but the size of the Ibox would make my package look too small, and I'm not sure how to magnify a pic big enough.
Perhaps you have something you'd like to discuss? And why do you even have this page marked?
If you would like to stimulate that discussion, you should update the ibox.
Oh, I was hoping this was a porn site to discuss my package.
What are we discussing here?
