I just could not make it pencil out. I kept the money in my FDIC insured bank deposit, not sure what to do...
I have some friends with rooftop solar. If they care about the environment, or they want to have a Status Symbol on their rooftop, or if they want to provide economic stimulus for the jobs they provide, then God Bless Them All, Mister Scrooge. But, "INVESTMENT?" Hahahahaha!
Folks rationalizing to me, what a Savvy Investment they made on their rooftop, sounds so much like folks rationalizing the Time Shares they have. Only once did a Solar Homeowner, a retiree in the Walnut Creek area, share with me any downside. When I was considering getting one a bit more than a decade ago, he said he was overall pleased with it . He also told me that he noticed a loss in efficiency / generation of it over time. He said if he went up on the roof and washed off the dust and bird poop he'd regain MOST of the lost capacity. As it turned out, they sold the home and moved to Vegas, "Sunk Capital" on his rooftop.
Ahem, the federal rate on Ordinary Dividends is 15%. If you have a high income, 18.8% with the Obamacare surtax. The top California rate for most of us is 9.3%. 18.8 + 9.3 = 28.1%. Not 50%.
OccasionalCortex saysYeah, so? We'll just walk away when the time comes. Sucks to be the People's Bank of China, eh?Surprising to most people, we don't owe much to China.Most of our debt is owed to ourself.

I bought a 12 X 20 Tuff Shed for my backyard with my Tax refund. That's on top of getting an extra $120 every biweekly paycheck. The Shed will be great, insulated electric outlets customized windows and doors. I'm moving my Man Cave/Office/Studio out there. The family is growing and we need my room inside the house. Thanks Donald Trump! Good looking out!
2018 Leaf @ 3.75 m/kWh: $400/yr = 6,976.74 miles/yr @ $0.215/kWh
Taking money from other taxpayers/ratepayers to finance your new car just causes taxes and rates to rise, and is fucking THEFT!
Where exactly are you taking delivery of electricity? PG&E minimum EV-B rate for off peak is $0.12452/kWh. 12,046 miles/yr, if you limit your charging to 11pm to 7am. You're getting free electricity to charge your vehicle from work? Bully for you!
Dude, where are you buying your gas? Are you buying 87 octane or 91?
But we must pony up over $2k for the extra meter for the privilege of the EV rate.
It's not hard to understand this stuff, I get it quite well. Cherry picking data during a period of ownership and saying, well fuck, I didn't have to deal with it, while disregarding what will happen to resale price due to depreciation is ridiculous.
So in a two year bear market toilet, you've just expanded your holdings from a meager 500 shares to almost 600. That's like being able to grow a business by 20% by doing 0 work for it. Even investing in a McDonald's franchise can't compete against that.And since no bear market lasts forever, eventually, you'll get back to $82 per share but with many more shares under your belt and a greater equity stake plus dividend payout.
Elgatouno saysPelosi didn't surrender to Trump.She proved that she would rather let Federal employees become homeless slaves, let people on welfare starve, and let the nation burn before she would give Trump the tiniest bit of a win. And they say that Trump is deranged. Fine leaders you people pick!
Pelosi didn't surrender to Trump.
the Boomers saved, scrimped and put money away to pay for their bills in retirement
Of course the ETF also fell by 10% to compensate. I got a check for my 10%, which you might think makes it all fine, but then I owed tax on that.
This one is a Goddamn lie there isn't even any data for 1975 as the earliest UAH Sat data is from 1992https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UAH_satellite_temperature_dataset
ThreeBays saysThe Troposphere just expelled the built up trapped heat, and brought us the Polar Vortex and a Hate Hoax. You should expect a downward trend from here.
You and your is so transphobic-it should be they and theirs!
4.6% is big money?
The left, and the left alone, created Trump and got him elected.
