US exchange regulations, limit to show indexes

I have receipt today this message from Trading view:

As per exchange regulations, S&P and Dow Jones indexes can be shown ONLY to users who are NOT logged in, or who are logged in and have paid for a real-time package. We cannot show them to all registered users. We do not understand this policy, but must follow it regardless. So, if you want to see real-time S&P and Dow Jones indexes, either log out of your account, or purchase the package through your User Settings.

This is interesting, you can be anonymous or pay for it…

I need to find what’s going on, this is very weird.

Tool “Pedestrian Aggressiveness Syndrome Scale” to measure how aggressive you are in your moves.

Basic strategy principles

The investment strategy has three pillars that are summed up by the acronym ODD:

  • Only invest in good companies.
  • Don’t overpay.
  • Do nothing.

“We limit it to a few sectors which have the characteristics we seek: consumer staples, some consumer discretionary products, healthcare, and technology being the main sectors.”

About Brexit: Better A Painful Ending, than An Endless Pain.

When there is not the perfect company in a sector, we pick two to look for that perfection.

Biogen

This company has lights as shades, there are things that are convincing for the medium term, but the past performance does not convince me for the long term portfolio (buy & hold). I will start checking it to see the evolution.

AT&T Vs VZ

Analyzing basic data from these 2 companies I did these 2 pictures that enable me to understand a little bit better their behavior. The key is to me the long term debt, where the acquisition of Timer Warner by AT&T is making the fundamentals to be eroded.
