WE ARE THE LITTLE PEOPLE, Jim Cramer! We are the coupon-clipping Hobbits of the world who revel in saving a few bucks at Kroger. And we're the majority that cry inside when we check out are portfolios at the end of a wild day. We get hair-splitting headaches, we can't sleep, we eat obsessively to dull the pain. Our guts are being wrenched out of our bodies by these swings in the market. Who cares about ISIS when you have a select group of New Yorkers reaching into our minds with their trading trickery and sending us into a depression. This is terrorism that affects MILLIONS. Some people would rather be shot dead than take a 50% loss of their net worth. Ask them, do a survey. Wall Street is clearly the true enemy of the American people.
In their stories about today's huge rally, they show pictures of floor traders positively beaming, BIG smiles over what happened today. Then the little investor who has been riding this emotional roller coaster and maybe even whipsawed if he/she decided to trade-out, believes exactly what they should.....These Wall Street #$%$ liberated them from their peaceful lives and perhaps their money...and that low-yielding CD just looks better and better.
That's the old school Mr. and Mrs. Public. The internet-savvy ones are checking their portfolios EVERY SINGLE DAY. Are you saying they're oblivious about their net worth, when they're looking at TMZ.ocm anyway? No, everything comes right up on their home pages and then they sign-in and check-out of their stock mutual funds. It's just a click of a mouse.
We're up on the day, until Mr. and Mrs. Public transmits orders to move their mutual fund money from that Stock fund over to that short-term Bond fund....until the media says that the coast is clear. Mutual Fund managers HAVE TO sell to meet the redemptions. Gains for the day....GONE
Best Buy's CEO is a Cheerleader and part-time Sociopath....IWatch's are selling "like crazy"....that's a pretty solid value. And just so you know, he's garnering most sales by offering that $100 BB Giftcard to move those IWatches out of his inventory. Good Day to YOU, Sir!
Tim Cook is not the best CEO in the world....Reed Hastings is the best CEO in the world....Compare Apple TV streams to an open-sourced powerhouse like Netflix. It's no contest. I would take a Roku over Apple's wonky device any day of the week. Hey Timbo, how's that car coming? The only way you're getting into the car business is an outright purchase of Tesla, so open that big fat wallet and make it happen.
TC said in the email, he receives DAILY sales reports from China, and then he shared those results EXCLUSIVELY with Cramer. Do you see why investors reliant on other news media outlets are crying foul? Cramer gets the email, Bloomberg does not? If TC had gone on Mad Money as a guest for all-to-see, nobody would say a word. It's a good time for Tim to leave anyway, the IWatch is a phenomenal Dud. Fire him now.
After the Apple Board of Directors fires Tim Cook for displaying such an epic lack of judgement awarding Cramer a scoop, I think it's only appropriate that CNBC award Tim a Morning Squawk coffee mug signed by the whole gang.
Apple can revolutionize anything it puts it's collective mind to. You listed exactly the things you would not find at an Apple theme park. Apple reinvented the cellphone. Now reinvent Disneyland Timmy.
But we're a consumer products company Tim cries. Opening a Theme Park to celebrate the Apple experience and it's impact on American's lives is clearly beyond their capabilities....real sad.
Don't get scorched by the Big Dragon.
The dramatic "journalists" of CNBC will throw kerosene on the fire to get those sell-orders flowing. That way they can have a stellar ratings day tomorrow (for a change). Lackluster markets, like we've been experiencing is not good for them, they need a nice high VIX to keep people interested. After all, you can only have Cramer yelling THEY KNOW NOTHING only so often.
unfortunately we've all seen this dance before, a miserable Friday, investors spend the weekend stewing over the thousands they've lost (whether actual or not...losing out on not-having-sold for a profit even having part or all of that profit evaporate counts too). They get anxious, it ruins their weekend, they decide they can't stand the heat and want out of the kitchen. The sell orders come flying in, the Quant-controlled computers go bananas and start short-selling and there's the death-spiral my friends.
Please upload your headquarters visit to YouTube. Woodman is Lance Armstrong. He'll deny everything and then when exposed, apologize and ask for a second chance....This is a $20.00 stock, sell and don't look back.
The beautiful thing about it, is there are zero lines.....
Purchasers of Hero cameras actually believed there would be more interest in their home movies because the product they used was so good. Now they know that the CONTENT is exactly what it was when their parents whipped out the Super 8 camera or the Sony HandyCam. You're taking home movies and they are just as boring as the ones on bottom shelf of your garage. It boils down to the fact that you're still boring, GoPro and Woodman cannot change that.
People are drawn to Apple Stores, but ultimately learn that it doesn't satisfy what they're craving....an Apple Experience tied into the products that they love. There's a need to be filled there, but it's not electronics, so Apple mgmt probably feels that they can't handle it. It's just too-much-for-them....pretty sad.
