Some of my lower cost Altria shares for a small gain.

Still believe CEO & BOD are idiots.

Why do you sell your lower cost shares ? You should sell your high cost shares, perhaps take a loss and either wash sale it by parking in another tobacco stock or just rebuying 31 days later.
To be a realist, one has to believe in miracles.

Spekulatius,

Back in November 2018 - here - Jeff contributed in the ACA topic with a post, based on his personal & actual situation :

My previous employers obligation to provide me with COBRA insurance came to an end on 30 September.

Faced with the need to mitigate the potential risk to all that I've worked for & saved, I stopped in
at the BCBS service center which is conveniently located right across the street from school.

I had been paying Chouest $437 a month for the same great coverage which had previously cost me $104.30
(I thought the higher premium was still a bargain, thank you Gary Chouest!) & I expected to have to
start paying the same or more for a significantly higher deductible.

Instead, the ACA will provide assistance, which will result in a monthly premium of just $22.55 with no deductible &
a $2500 annual max out of pocket expense.

If you make less than $12,060 per year you get zip.

Passive income counts & I qualify for 2019 with the following projections:

$8,200 - Pell Grant estimate
$12,000 - expected dividends & cap gains

I expect to take advantage of this until May of 2022 when I'll earn a Bachelors degree & get back to work.

---

I thought this might interest anyone who has a friend or relative who needs assistance but hasn't yet gotten it.
Open enrollment is going on NOW.

Anyone who feels like I'm a slacker for doing this should examine whether they enjoy professional musical entertainment after a hard day at the office.
(They should also follow me around for a week to see how hard this stuff actually is...)

So much for the US Health Care System. If you are a healthy person in good mental shape, alone maneuvering this system may eventually put you on medication.

The amount of brain damage that single payer system would save US citizens alone makes it worth it.  ;D

I'm single & was paying for drinks at the FloraBama last night.

I feel a lot more sane today.

That is all.

I'm deeply distracted by the sunk cost fallacy & find it difficult to sell shares of MO which are slightly underwater.

I know that I should sell if I don't believe that management is making good moves (and I don't.)

I should turn that into an if/then statement & see if it's a tautology.
Or would it be better to use a Venn diagram?
