but he lost 40% in one fund? not so cool
No. Definitely NOT Kablamo.

As a gold fan for decades, I NEVER was considered "cool" at any point in my life. That's OK though.
I now have a family, a business, no debt and gold.
I LIKE it: TF Market Advisers...

ah you know i'm still not sure...i'm working right now, for the city... i'm thinking of holding on to the job for a while...it's like, you know money in my pocket...

THE MARKET keeps reminding me of bad sharts.
Im sure the majority of readers can understand the comparisons in this article as most have likely been on the margin most of their lives.
The Bible and my therapist have helped me get through the emotional issues.
after going to catholic school pre-school through college, atheism has helped me through but we each have to find our own path
Yeah, like me. But at 55 now, I don't have to be cool.

The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have raided the offices of Solyndra, the now bankrupt solar energy company that the Obama administration helped secure $500 million in federally-backed loans.
Think Obamatron will pull a Nixon and appoint a special prosecutor for this?
The US is all about groups, not individuality.
Naively, this article shows up as a nice token to it.

Event Horizon Breached, bitchez!
Sorry for OT, I need some advice.....meeting with Bank tomorrow in regards to purchasing house next door. We knew the owner like a member of the family, she passed and was left to her son. He is offering it to us for $200K and it is easily $300. 15 ajoining acres and we are raising cattle on side.
We owe $80K on our current mortgage.
Have $136K pre tax in CD, liquidate and ~$65K
Combined Salary $160K, no other debt, $15K cash, $10K PM.
Ideally, cash out CD, pay of existing, "own" current home, take $200K mort on 2nd and and rent it.
Won't have a DP, but mortage is ~30% under value.
Or refi combo $280K (don't want to, but option)
Please advise OH great ZH blog. Thanks!
Here's a reply with ammendment to questions from previous thread
The house is a good deal that has presented itself at an especially bad time in history. It is a gamble. I'm not a gambler and would put it all on PMs (which is exactly what I did). However, you left out important information.
What is the rental situation in your area? How much can you rent it for and are similar rental properties remaining empty? It's a 1976 4 bedroom, $2500sqft raised ranch , new siding, roof, windows, boiler attached 2car garage, hardwood floors. Assuming ~ >$1000/month
Is the job market in your area dependent upon one or two big companies, and if so, how are they doing? Albany/Saratoga Area upstate NY.
Has your area already taken a huge hit in real estate, thereby making an argument why you won't get hit as bad by the next wave of recession/housing collapse? I would say less change than 80% of country
Will the owner of the property consider a rent to own? In that case, it takes a lot of risk off your shoulders. He obviously won't worry you will trash the place.He lives 3rhs away ion Long Island, wans it off his plate.
Will he sell you the excess acreage and not the house? It sounds like that is a big motivation for the purchase. Acreage is main reason, Could flip house.
How secure are your jobs and your health? Those answers can change everything. Both mid 40's no issues, relatively secure jobs (engineer's)But nothing is 100%, that's why owning current house outright is priority
Thanks for your Help!
"Have $136K pre tax in CD, liquidate and ~$65K" why not get a loan against the CD instead of taking on the tax liabilities?
you are missing numbers for someone to be able to put together a plan of action..
You owe _______________? in total.
You owe _______________? on the house.
You owe _______________? on a 2nd? piece of property?
You have "X" amount of whatever that has value.. Gold, Cash on Hand, Equity in Property(s)
start there and I will do my best to provide you with good information that is sourced and sited so that you can read and decide yourself.. as well maybe some other ideas that I dont agree with but I will once again source and site the info so you can be informed as opposed to in the dark to what the details are all about.
You owe __________83K_____? in total.
You owe _________83K______? on the house.
You owe _________None______? on a 2nd? piece of property?
1. _____136K CD_______________
2. ______15K Cash______________
3. _____10K PM_______________
the most important factors may be your age, your health, and how you are insured for life and health, and the make-up of your family in these respects
why do you "own" a pre-tax CD? are the reasons valid, and if so, why sell out now?
if you borrow the "money" on your CD, you will pay it back post-tax. ouch.
this is pretty complex, and this is what CPA's are for. i always do my own taxes, but i also know several CPA's and use them for planning/designing ventures and to do tax planning. not "certified financial planners", certified public accountants.
i would advise you the talk to your own banker about who would be the best CPA in town for you and then get two other opinions, maybe from your doctor, and from another cattle producer. you will need to make an appointment for the one you choose and pay him/her the hourly fee for advice on how to set this up. maybe even talk to two CPA's, to see what the second says after you are a bit more up-to-speed from the first, then go back to the first if you have any "questions" from the second
don't be in a hurry to make a mistake; if you keep the new property as a separate business, you might have the best tax advantages
get the escrow open with a deposit and tell your banker you need some expert advice to find the best path, here, for yourself and your peeps
also, you can use a title company which your bank works with, and maybe keep realtors outa the deal
after your banker helps you set this up shop his deal and confront him if he isn't giving you the best deal by more than a few thou$. see how badly he wants you in his/her bank
ur most welcome, Pinktipped zeroHead!
one more thingy, which i'm sure you already know, do NOT talk abt this deal! until it is closed. loose lips sink ships, and even with an accepted Purchase Agreement and an earnest-money deposit, daddy warbucks can and will take you out if he can get to the young (?) man who is selling
banker, CPA, title company (see the poss downside there?), they all need to be told , every time you transact w/ them, to keep their mouths shut. if you have any RE experience or even if the seller doesn't own the piece outright, you may not need a title company to start, just a standard Purchase Offer and Acceptance form and a cancelled check, and you have legal contract. but you will still want to search the title for any encumbrances/easements/liens/boundary disputes which the seller may not know of if he just inherited it as "surviving joint tenant"; so be careful, there may be a reason he is selling low
for example, in CA if a person is on state medicaid and dies, the 'estate' owes the money(all of it) to CA [if you're poor you can get medical tratment, but when you die, the old mobile home belongs to the state]. so make sure all the bills have been paid; if they haven't been, there may be a judgment coming down the pipe against the property, which the seller will hafta pay at closing. anything that can go wrong will go wrong. shit, man! you're a rancher! you wrote that line, i'll betcha! L0L!!!
again, best of luck and prosperity to you & yours!
You might not be cool, but at least people will be nice to you if you are serving them their food.
I personally like the three golds. Gold, Poorman's Gold, and the Golden Arches
I don't mean to be an ass, but I ass-ume everybody here is cool.
I'll be the guy that walks around with a boner all day long.
Wait, I'm that guy already.
An empty bottle of tequila may have brought clarity to all this but the benefits are transitory.
Small hedge fund shops that I deal with are having great returns. I think these big funds move too slow and have gotten complacent in their strategies.
I loved high school...
