This is shaping up to be one of my best starts to the year ever. The stocks I bought were most likely to be up even if the markets were down but looking at those futures this morning, that's going to add more rocket fuel to them. I love this game and I'm already loving 2015.
Got rid of a bunch of them just in time before the markets starting going down. What a great great start to the new year. I've only got one that didn't fire so that's great. Normally I don't have as many stocks as I did this year going into the new year and have two or three that don't fire. This year I only have one. Normally I just sell them if they don't fire quickly but I made hold onto the one that didn't fire, long term. I'm talking about holding it for as much three or four weeks. The only reason I'm holding it is because its BCOR and the first quarter is their big quarter of the year because of their TaxAct software, so I'm going to give this one more time to respond. Been such a good year that what one of the stocks does really doesn't mean anything. I love this game.
Few people realize it but Carter did one of the masterful jobs of all time, handling the economy. He was handed the perfect storm. Millions and millions of baby boomers hitting the age where they all needed cars homes and everything that goes with it. The only way to keep things from running so fast that it would end in a giant collapse was to work with the FED to increase interest rates to whatever was needed. Many men would not have had that courage. This country would have been in major trouble if interest rates had been kept low. Its because of that, that I consider him one of the greatest of our presidents. One has to have a deep understanding of economics to understand that and thus, we have a lot of republicans saying he was a bad president. What he did for this country is immeasurable but he gets no credit for it because of low IQ, uninformed people.
What's wrong with those people. They should be shooting relatives in a Walmart store or chopping their family members heads off at home like a good republican does.
To clarify, the other GOP choices are just as bad. The Democrats have a vast stable of capable people who could do a great job.
Is that the same genius Milton Friedman who said that supply side economics lifts everyone? Now, how many decades of supply side economic failure before you finally admit it is a disaster. I know some people are a bit slow, but geeeez.
Got rid on another one. It was up a bit not doing too much after being up 4+% Tuesday but suddenly, somebody started dumping big money into it. Most likely a hedge fund. It suddenly jumped an was up 11% today and I dumped it. Its now traded over four times normal volume after a very slow start, based on volume. You just gotta love this game.
This is going to be a very enjoyable weekend but I must admit, I can't wait until Monday comes around. As they say, this is more fun than playing the sax, or something like that. Hope everyone has a great weekend and see you Monday.
Have you checked the cost of building a bridge today or the cost of building a road. Its sick that this country can't spend as much on its roads as it does in defense spending a year. We need the roads but 70% of that defense spending is unneeded and just political payoff to those that support the parties.
Did you take it out of the campaign contribution coffers? I'd like to know why he felt compelled to donate to the family of those two slain officers but didn't contribute a penny to the Cliven Bundy supporters that murdered the two Las Vegas police. Does Jeb live by a double standard?
Is anyone surprised that WMT gas is lower quality? Their motto should be
ALWAYS LOWER QUALITY, ALWAYS
By the way Carl, thanks for that post. I never gave it any thought. I usually buy my gas at Costco but sometimes from an Arco station around here and I just checked out the site and it told me that both sell top tier gasoline but occasionally I'll travel across town and if I need gas I stop in a 7-11 because its in a convenient location. Their gas is not top tier so I won't be buying gas there again. If anyone knows this, why would they buy lesser quality gasoline for their car, which is a big investment for most people? Glad to see someone posting useful information on this site. Welcome to my club.
President Obama. We only have a couple years left with him we all need to make a conscious effort to cherish every moment we have with him. We may get other great presidents but I doubt we will ever find one so good, again.
Could we say that WMT sells the pink slime of gasoline?
Former Republican Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell will learn how long he will spend in prison as he will be sentenced. Too bad Bush isn't still in office. He'd see a pardon quicker than you could say republican sheep are brain dead.
Of course, the republican sheep know that some places had snow last year so it has to be a lie. The republican sheep bring new meaning to the word dumb.
Do they know that if you also add water to the gas, you can make even more money? Or is that like telling a robber that you can get more money robbing rich people than homeless people? LOL
