Curious what items we purchase are considered to be ones where we really need to see, feel or touch and try it before buying. Cars, electronics, clothing, fruit and vegetables? Sometimes shopping is about the interaction with the merchandise and the merchant or employees, not just about stocking up.

True enough for some items, but I do remember reading an article about Best Buy's biggest problem: Consumers who visit, put their hands on products and ask questions, etc. then purchase online.

One might suspect that the higher end the product for the buyer, the more incentive to put hands on.

There is a debt bubble hidden in the price of our stocks. Lets take our favorite company for example

https://simplywall.st/news/2017/04/18/is-corelogic-incs-clgx-financial-health-a-matter-of-concern/

"CLGX’s current assets ($392 Million) are less than half its total debt ($1.60 Billion). The company’s current assets to total debt ratio isn’t at a satisfactory level." As long as rates stay low, like almost 0% by the FED they can buy their own stock shares and increase the price!

Corelogic. Not even on the list of potential favorite companies.
Not that I have a list.
Well... I do love their burgers.
