Personal finance and investing megathread extravaganza

I know lewdog (and maybe others) have mentioned the desire to have a place to chat about personal finance stuff. We'll see if there's enough interest to keep this going in the long-term, but at least for now, here's a place to chat about whatever personal finance topics come up.



If you're just getting started thinking about saving and don't know where to begin, this flow chart can help. Ask for advice in the thread for more help!

The Chinese are supporting the 7 level that everyone freaked out about them breaking today. Futures were down 600 several hours ago. Now down 185. China will **** itself raw if they let their currency go down. It will collapse. Literally.

Goddamned sister****ing USDA.

****ing corn down the butt****ing limit 2 minutes after the report today.

Giant portion of the cornbelt got planted late. Conventional knowledge says planting delays in the cornbelt cost yield. Unless it's 6 weeks late, then there is super high yields according to USDA.

So either every delayed planting weather rally there has ever been ever, not to mention a forest of paper worth of university research is flat wrong, or this yield number the USDA puked out is wrong.

Goddamned sister****ers.

/rant

tl;dr If you were short corn at 10:59 AM, you've made money.

If I knew how to pick an absolute bottom I'd be wealthy. But unless you're buying 50,000 shares I don't see much difference in 11.60 and 9.00.

I don't see it really rebounding until the china trade war is over and China is content on waiting until the next election before it gives in. Just my opinion.

At some point and time I can see X going back to 30-40 but that may be 1 year and it may be 5 years.

Don't ever mention Entravision or Thor RVs to me in a conversation, please. Those two stocks have been killing me for a year now and I keep thinking they have to rebound.

Sell them and give yourself a tax deduction.

Might be a good time to take that cash and put back in a fund while the market is tanking.

Thor is in an IRA, but Entravision is on shaky ground with me right now. I might have to do that.

The weaker outlook for iQiyi (IQ), Baidu’s majority-holding video-streaming subsidiary, was one of the factors contributing to the lowered expectations for Baidu. There has been a delay in the launch of some broadcasting content due to increased regulatory scrutiny from the government, which could result in lower-than-expected growth in iQiyi’s paid subscribers and thus membership revenue in the second half of 2019. Chung lowered his price target for iQiyi, which is listed separately on the Nasdaq, to $19 from $21. The stock currently trades at about $17 per share.

Another headwind for Baidu is the continuously low demand for online advertising in China, driven by the slowing economy and uncertainties in the macro environment. The recently escalated trade war between the U.S. and China, especially, could hurt sentiment, wrote Chung. He lowered the revenue estimate for Baidu’s core advertising business by 0.7% and 1.6% in the third and fourth quarter, respectively.

Er mer gerd!!!!

I could have told you a week ago we were heading for a down swing. Let me help paint a picture for you as understanding why the market is really down makes it better to sit through and take advantage of:

1. Hong Kong is bad. Really, really bad.
2. It's August. Summer trading is volatile and sucks!
3. It's August. Traders coming back from vacation add to the volatility
4. It's August. Traders will run shit down to get shit cheap going into the 4th Q.
5. Trade tensions are overblown but playing a part
6. Global rates are coming down because the rest of the world half-ass embraces capitalism
7. People are emotional and scared creatures that suck ass and can't see past the nose of their face

Now let me help make that all better:

1. It's only August and that's a volatile time in general
2. Rates are going down which will force people into the stock market to find yield. Much the same as during the Obama era
3. Fed is going to cut rates some more making #2 even more powerful
4. The trade tensions will be dealt with. China will come to the table or watch their economy tank
5. Europe is going to have to eventually shit or get off the pot regarding China and their economies
6. Earnings are and will remain strong
7. Consumer spending is strong
8. Jobs are still in good shape
9. Housing market is in good shape
