  1. Has anyone read this book? Its a good read. My dad owned it and I read it twice. A #1 bestseller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice.Pulitzer Prize–winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the eighties’ biggest names on Wall Street—Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine —created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America’s most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice.
  2. Nuckin Futz Sorry for the late response. This has to be one of the best replies I have ever seen on CDC Thanks for the information. I have been digesting some of it and have started watching some youtube videos on the subject. Its a whole new area I never knew much about. Thanks!
  3. Cool I was just reading how hydrogen will be the future and not electric. They just need to get the cost down of producing hydrogen through electrolysis using renewable energy rather than converting natural gas which is cheaper now. they figure 10 years.
  4. I know insurance companies are driving up premiums... because they are losing money on the investment side due to low interest rates and on the claim side due to the high number of claims that may or may not be caused by climate change such as increased flooding, hurricanes, Forest Fires etc. I thought of picking up an insurance company down the road a s a hedge against inflation and rising rates. If interest rates climb they will start making more money on the investment side. Is this a thing or am I wrong?
  5. Im likely to never be a day trader but I am curious about it. Would you care to explain why you stopped (no worries if you dont)? what does it take to be a day trader? Any online resources or books you recommend?
  6. Should be the Skate logo instead of the Orca
  7. Hunters on Amazon Part Schindlers list, part Inglorious Basterds, part Oceans Eleven, part comic book hero, add in some seventies vibes Hard hitting scenes of holocaust, mixed with over the top violence, mixed with some camp If the first scene puts you off then you should pass on the rest. The second scene is a discussion on Darth Vader.... enough said Some great acting and some of the most vile characters I have ever seen, Including the Secretary of State and the American Nazi psychopath.
  8. Island cases going up now to 111. Right after Long weekend. Coincidence? .... maybe May long weekend we should shut ferries down to non-essential travel. I know Easter long weekend travel via ferries was very low despite news reports and social media saying otherwise. 15,000 people only which I think was 90% of normal but still those all cant be essential trips. Geographically we have an opportunity to shut Covid down on the island and start reopening the economy. One of the steps would be shutting down the ferries to all but essential services. Even if it is just an experiment it would be worth trying.
  9. What's next storage in rail cars? If it's not already done?
  10. Does anyone have insight into the renewable energies sector? What about TransAlta (RNW). Has rebounded off its lows however Dividend is around 6%.
  11. I see a few posts on people using TFSA accounts for day trading/short term trades. Makes sense however if you are not into day trading but rather long term investing what are the best strategies in your opinion. Dividends, Growth?? I was thinking of investing in dividend stocks in my TFSA for some tax free income in the future.
  12. Obviously it wasnt the only problem but it was the first problem and sharing a border with China they decided to shut it down early. There is a reason why their outbreak is delayed. Unfortunately many other mistakes were made (like all countries) and now it looks like they are going to be in real trouble like USA and Italy.
