Re: Synchrony Bank raised HY Savings to 1.15%

Barclays also raised theirs to 1.05% recently. Good to see some improvement, even if slow.

Finding historical bond data

I am trying to do some archeology in the corporate bond market. Is there a tool to find historical issues that have already matured? Something like "find me all the bonds issued by IBM between 1990 and 2000". I found the link below, but it seems to only have issues that are still being tra...

Re: Seattle Area Chapter Meetings - Master Thread

I'd be interested in meeting in downtown Seattle too. As a compromise, what about alternating between the Eastside and downtown?

I took the mechanical exchange to be light-hearted small talk.

Re: Buffett interview Monday 2/27

Are these interviews usually posted somewhere afterwards? Preferably the whole thing, not just the highlight reel.

Re: downhill skiing

Here, 70+ patrons get fantastic rates. $15 instead of $75 for a day pass. Season passes practically given away.

I have about 4 decades to go but I sure hope to take advantage of that.

Re: Mega backdoor Roth IRA across multiple jobs?

1) It all depends on the plan. My employer lets me contribute only after tax money if I so desire, so long as the combined percentage of pre-tax, after-tax, and Roth contributions do not exceed X% of my pay.
