damnit I shouldn't have sold part of my AMD holdings now that rumor has it going around Apple might be putting Ryzen CPUs into mac laptops and desktop.

I hope the rumors are true. It would be awesome to see a Threadripper 3990x in a Mac.

Looks like references to AMD CPUs is already in the source code. So the rumor is credible.

This is why you listen to enginerds digging in the trenches and not some wall street analysts who are clueless.

I should have bought Sprint, I knew the merger would go through.

Well hopefully I will get a better signal at the house now, Our T-mobile gets lousy coverage at the house but Sprint phones had a good signal at the house.

They are mandated to improve coverage in more rural areas as part of the merger.

I bought some PG&E when it was.$7-8....I sold when it was $17. I'm waiting for Newsom to say something awful again so that it goes back down to $13

I bought some GE after earnings.

I might do the social irresponsible thing and buy Altria. I don't think things can get much worse for them.

I didn't think this Coronavirus would affect the US markets. SARs didn't either.

Me thinks dumb money is going to capitulate after sitting out the markets for some time and gradually start moving money back into the markets.

Asian markets, on the other hand , are a mess, and indexes have not recovered there unlike the US.

Fall apart? Flu, If anyone can argue there is no falling apart, you can. I am sure that in 2008 you said that everything is fine even though the Western liberal order almost fell apart.

But yeah, a recession is only 2 quarters of negative growth and life does go on.

Recession or not, Im sure you will use the opportunity to brag about your stock prowess and then sing the praises of index investing.

Shoveler, you may want to look into a new phone with 600mhz band for better Tmobile coverage.
I would not count on the merger for better coverage. It took years for Cingular and ATT to merge their networks. They had separate blue and orange networks and phones would not automatically connect to the strongest.
