NVDA?

Anyone follow Nvidia? Got any thoughts (ie, guesses) on how their earnings will go on Thursday? Charts showing anything scary, for you technical traders?

With all due respect, you're scaring me. Seems like you are throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks... or thinking of swinging for the fences. Most of us are just investing our retirement stash in boring index stocks and CDs... 15% YTD.

Thinking I may like to dabble a little and see if I can get the hang of it, once I have more free time. DH just ordered a CD from some guy we saw on TV that supposedly is a wizard at it.

How did YOU learn?

Just wondered if anyone here has started an online business, either before or after RE.

One of the causes close to my heart these days is helping widows. Two of my three sisters lost their husbands unexpectedly at young ages, leaving them needing help with a lot of things their husbands used to do. I've thought of setting up something where people could volunteer to help widows with things like home repairs, lawn mowing, moving things, etc.--but the security issues give me pause (ie, identifying someone as a widow who lives alone, AND giving strangers access to their homes, among other things).

Not sure--still pondering all the thousands of possibilities. But I'd love to hear others' experiences with this.

I have $315K in one IRA and $140K in a 401k.

I'd like to have the IRA generate a passive income of $10k-$12k/year.

Is it possible to generate that kind of an income by putting the entire balance of $315K into a single income-producing mutual fund?

How to Retire on Dividends: Earn a Safe 8%, Leave Your Principal Intact

I guess the gist of it is investing in closed-end bond funds and REITs, etc. I just skimmed the portion they allow you to see on Amazon.

Sounds interesting (but the last time I owned a REIT I hated it because it did absolutely nothing).

What's the deal with closed-end bond funds? Anyone here invest in them?

I’ve been in and out of it for many years (not with my retirement money). Last time I bought was “unfortunate timing”, before it fell off a cliff, so I’ve been patiently waiting for it to recover. Almost there.

Just was curious if there’s anyone here who watches it and cared to share an opinion.

If I had had the foresight I would have bought into NVDA before the whole bitcoin thing, but then really it would have been better to just buy bitcoin.

I make my money in biotech for now. I am currently sitting out but would jump back into Merck or possibly BMY or Gilead on a big drop. All you have to do is wait for some politician to say something and you can buy in at a 10% discount, then sell a few days later. I have done it about 10 times in the past two years.
