Arsenio, Fallon, Kimmel, Seth, Conan or Letterman
The madness and the mania are here. It must be spring because all that is coming through clearly is a letter. That letter is M, which is the stock symbol for Macy’s. Macy’s has had a good holiday, and is poised to move higher. Macy’s target 63 color yellow and black.
Short, Short, Short
Here comes the bear. One stock in the healthcare sector that is overheated and due for a pullback is Athena Healthcare (ATHN). Look for it to drop into the low 100’s and possibly a lot lower.
A Penny, Penny, Penny for your thoughts
One stock that may be foreshadowing what is to come is JC Penny. Penney’s has always been a store for simple people. Yes you can find your gold toe socks and you can also find great merchandise at a great price with the St. Johns Bay and Worthington lines. They are working through their strategy, and they have stopped the Stafford Prep line and replaced it with the Talor (SP) line which is just as trendy but gets rid of that old school feeling of the name Stafford. St Johns Bay, Worthington, and the latest white sale can’t save JCP but if you pray enough and you shop there regularly, maybe you can.
These are two words that no one wants to hear. So if you are on the bubble because you did not get a raise or you did not get that bonus, start checking the job boards. Once you find a new job, hopefully one that pays 10%-20% more than your making now, resign from your current job. This is where a college degree comes in very handy. People with college degrees earn more.
It’s Go Time. Time to celebrate and have fun, and find that special someone. Saint Patrick’s day is around the corner, so here are some pick up lines for your amusement:
1- Hi, my name is__.
2- Make a comment about the clothes they are wearing- ie That’s a sharp red dress. Did you get it custom made? It looks great on you. How about “Where did you get that Guinness T-shirt?”?
3- Do you like cake? Cause one day I’m going to feed cake to you.
4- What’s your sign?
5- Let’s just get it out of the way – Gay, Transgender, straight or married?
6- How many guys/gals think you are the one that got away? – This is a good conversation starter, follow it up with #9
7- What are you drinking? Yum that looks good.
8- Always the bridesmaid/usher never the bride/groom? Works only when they are drunk.
9- No game required-The one that always works is – Is anyone sitting here. You look like you could use a friend.
10- Magnum certified- At last call, you don’t need a pickup line. Be direct. Just remember to do your happy dance if you end up on Maury ;-). If you need a line try: Are we getting Irish breakfast here or at my place?
Grab some buds and make the rounds of your favorite bars/pubs, restaurants, and yeah that Miller place. I’ll be the one drinking a pint of something black and tan.
There are too many people that I want to thank, and I have been thanking them along the way. Thanks Shirley, Bella, Natalie, Reg, Frank, Oscar, Sam, Tom, Omar, Ramon, Josie, Ken, PJ, Karen, Don, Donna, Chris, Diane, Rice, Keegan, Bert, Lincent, Linda, Mary, Matilda, Janice, Amber, Ryan, Brian, Erin, Bobo, Vazquez, Romero, Jerry, Kayla, Gill, Jack, Yost, Olivia, Cooper, Emily, Emma, Gwen, Janet, Avery, Elena, Roscoe, Cody, JB, Tory, Carol, Sharon, Jeff, Linda, Shannon, Loretta, Curtis, Kevin, and Gabriel for your help with this.
Light em up! Let it Flow! Please drink responsibly!
She’s my blessed baby girl Genevieve- The road less traveled
You know 5 years ago I never listened to country music. Then one day a blonde girl shaked her #$%$ in front of the camera and sang a duet with JB Jovi and I couldn’t get enough (Leann Rimes did too by the way but no #$%$ shaking LOL). “Who said you can’t go home” led me to a song that was just as precious called “Baby Girl”. The band of course is Sugarland, and the lead singer is Jennifer Nettles. Jennifer Nettles is out with a solo album, because everyone needs to take a break. This album includes fun songs like Moneyball, Know you Wanna Know, Like a Rock, and Thank You a song that you might dance to with your mom(s) and dad(s). It also includes the ultimate sad country bar song: A good time to cry. Be a fan for life because there comes a time when everyone faces their demons. It could be someone on one shoulder playing the lyrics to living on a prayer and someone on the other playing losing my religion. Search deep, and you will find what works best for you.

Remember to pray. If you forgot how, you don’t need to fold your hands, and you don’t need to go to temple or your place of worship. Say it with your heart your soul and believe it and end it the way you were taught. Amen? (Don’t worry I’ll get around to everybody… God willing.). If you find it difficult to pray for yourself, then pray for your friends. You’ll feel better.
NO APOLOGIES So help me god! Love it! Blue It! Bombard E-A it!
Make sure to come back on or around February 27th for my next post.
It’s Showtime- It was a great season of Homeland. House of Lies, Nurse Jackie and Ray Donovan return for a new season on Showtime. The Good Wife continues to amaze Sundays on CBS. There is nothing hotter than a woman with a gun, Person of Interest continues Tuesdays on CBS and Intelligence Mondays on CBS. Catch up now on demand or online.
Diamond Ring- Everybody is getting married and some of us are planning on popping the big question in a few day. Here’s a wicked cool idea: how about taking them to dinner and a Broadway play, and then maybe pop the question at one of the many place around the city that have a spectacular view.
Orange, White and Omaha
The healthcare sector is on fire and one of the gorillas of the industry is Glaxo Smithkline. GSK has great brands like Aquafresh and Breathe Right. It also has a host of items available for prescription including Lovaza and asthma blockbuster Advair. With the affordable care act, healthcare stocks should continue to outperform. GSK Colors Orange and White target $57. Consider this, the hint of the century: January Omen-This is going to be a very volatile year. While there are many stocks that are cheap now, they might be on sale for less later in the year. One option is to stay out of the market, the other is to jump in and set protective stops along the way, another is to stay all in, and the last is of course to hedge your bet.
