Comments:
  • Our contractor fumbled for a bit because he thought we did not have a 16v transformer. He wasted about 2 hours before he figured this out. A voltmeter would have saved him that time (not the fault of Ring.com)
  • One he ascertained that we had 16v ... the install took about an hour
  • The App setup on the IPhone was EZ. I fumbled because I had forgotten the WIFI password and had to search for it
  • The contractor asked for $ 80 bucks ... I gave him $ 100.

Euphoria Investing?



Investors are nearing the ‘point of maximum financial risk,’ says this chart

Excerpt:

If you’re looking for warning signs in this market, you don’t have to look too far. The Fed winds are no longer at our backs, equity valuations are getting increasingly stretched, and the political climate isn’t exactly stable, to name just a few. Yet, investors continue to feast on a steady diet of new highs, with the Dow continuing to break into uncharted territory even as tech stocks come under pressure. Not a huge surprise, really. As Bob Farrell, the Merrill Lynch investing legend, once said about stock-market trends: “The public buys the most at the top and the least at the bottom.” It remains to be seen if the market is anywhere near a top, of course, but if this chart, which Steve Blumenthal of CMG Capital described as an illustration of Farrell’s views, is any indication, we are approaching the “point of maximum financial risk.”
