I purchased three new polos from S&M, while the quality is great I ordered a size too big. Then due to some unfortunate family events I sat on the return and passed my 30 days.     In size small I have: White Polo - Shirt Collar Heather Charcoal Polo - Shirt Collar Marine Blue Polo - Shirt Collar   They are all unworn and two still in their plastic, although one was tried on inside for a few moments before realizing it was too big.    I'll let them go for $60 USD...
Looks great. I like the sock choice too. 
A bit out of my current price range. 
I love that Drake's tie. 
They have a lot of debt and leveraged companies are not in favor.  Especially with government contracts from Iraq and Afghanistan roll off combined with a declining media market.  Declining markets and very high leverage wipe out shareholder equity. 
There is no more math to it. You have always taken a loss on that tranche. Quote:Originally Posted by lawyerdad If you believe strongly in the long-term (whatever that may mean to you) value of the security and see interim drops as opportunities to pick up additional shares at nice discount that you believe makes the new purchase an attractive investment, that's rational. To a certain extent, that's at least one of the rationales behind just making steady contributions to...
No it is a very real loss. One can continue to invest to make up for it, but it is still a loss.  The problem is if you are holding the securities when the market begins to price in higher rates. You will take a capital loss. 
You still take the loss. I'm thinking on a portfolio level. None of the tools available to me likely have a negative correlation with rising rates.  mREITs do in a way because they are hedged and steeper rates bring a greater yield, but there is no way to know what the yield curve steepness will look like in the future. Also I can only buy a REIT fund that has eREITs and mREITs. 
Yes you do.  Can't put it in cash though, so not much I can do there. I believe the current government spending patterns will lead to a tax increase bar anything unforseen happening. I'd rather lock in the tax rate now.  I still don't fully understand the mechanism by which mid term bond funds operate. I presume they are selling bonds as they get closure to maturity to maintain their average maturity so there is a risk of capital loss. Need to go through a fixed income...
My Roth 401k is actually 90% bonds at the moment.    I want to put as much as I can in there without risk of loss. Will re-allocate when valuations become more attractive.
