Thing is though the amount of money made on the "I" bonds will re-occur every 6 months (in varying amounts), eBay sales do not. Plus no loss to inflation in the I's.   If or rather when inflation does drop to near zero then rejoice and move the money elsewhere.

 

....and yes I do get a commission on every Series I Bond sold :)

Oddly enough, one of the great non-comic topics on this Board is the financial commentary people offer. Thankfully, my wife is the mastermind with our investments - but I always come at her out of the blue with financial tips here and there as I read them in these threads.

I'm in charge of the 10-year comic/art portfolio. She's in charge of everything else.

I'd be curious to see whose portfolio of the two of you has the greater ROI. 

Comics or investments?

My comic and art portfolio have another 9 years to go before I look at it. My wife is in charge of the investment side - and she's pretty good at it. She kicked our broker to the curb three or four years ago to manage it herself and just in doing that saved us a boatload of money.

She us up and working on our investments when the market opens and she's on that for a few hours each day before she comes into work. Off and on, of course - depending on what's happening in the market. Some days are busier than others.

It's now on ComicLink. Will it make the $5K point to cover half the cost of the pair? It's at $1100 at this writing.

I don't think this is exactly a flip, more just shady. The descriptions are exactly the same too.

A couple of weeks later, a new seller, BIN but amazingly in the same city...
