Re: Shark Tank

Thanks Freddie, Bob, and Value. It makes sense to me now. This all ties into "pre-money valuation" and "post-money valuation". In an equity sale, a company worth $100K owned by 1 person selling 50% would still be worth $100K and the seller takes $50K for himself. In a dilution sa...

Taxes and ETFs

So... If I buy and hold a mutual fund, I will periodically get hit with a tax obligation despite the fact that I have not bought or sold shares.

Watching the flow of money

Hi All - I frequently see news reports saying something like "X millions of dollars is flowing out of the bond market". Is there a good source for aggregated data on the flow of money into and out of equity and fixed income markets? How about specific sectors within each? Or do people just...
