Do you think Huel Howser would love the California Gold of ZNGA?
He appeared to be the eternal optimist, ever cheerful with folk wisdom, and not a bad word came from his mouth. He did pass on to the next world this last Sunday. Were he yet alive, I think he would issue a major buy signal on ZNGA. However, if you remove the rose colored glasses, even Huel had a dark secret side to his life, which was seldom removed from the closet. The cause of death was not disclosed, and he was relatively young. There was also that very remote desert compound of his where he carried out his drill sergeant exercises, reminiscent of his days in the Marines.
Moral of the story: With stocks and celebrities, things are often not as they appear to be. In the end, the veils are almost always removed.
