Yes this is semantics. I like semantics. I interact with computers a lot. Computers are really interested in semantics. Drives my wife nuts.
Warfish is one of my favorite posters. I have to antagnoize him a little bit now and again to get his attention.
Semantics. No problem. I define (for myself) ALL activity which is in financial instruments or INTENDED for financial instruments as investments.
All my monies are "compartmentalized" in defined areas. Different accounts for different concepts i.e. stocks, munis, corporate bonds, annuities, etc. And my wife and I have separate accounts under an umbrella trust. The sign of a overorganized sick mind. LOL
