Comments Off on Marc Andreessen’s Not Wearing an Apple Watch….
In the great Tad Friend piece in the New Yorker on Marc Andreessen, the accompanying photo of Andreessen shows him wearing a watch, which turns out, surprisingly, NOT to be an Apple Watch but a Resco! Andreesen, perhaps the most famous venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, the man who is said to predict the future in technology, is not wearing an Apple Watch? The article is titled, "Tomorrow’s Advance Man": Marc Andreessen’s plan to win the future"; I guess the future isn't here just yet for the Apple Watch...

Comments Off on Warren Buffett Goes After Citadel’s New Hire
I guess Warren Buffett doesn't think Citadel made a good decision in hiring Ben Bernanke. But Bernanke is more than just any old economist, right. He was chairman of the federal reserve....but maybe that's not even good enough for Buffett, who says there's no need for an economist on a company's payroll...a lizard, yes, but no economists....Buffett is an anti-economist, as they might say on a Seinfeld episode.

Comments Off on Jim Cramer Likes Under Armour: Buy It Under $80
After studying their must recent quarter, Jim Cramer likes Under Armour. Cramer says you might get a chance to buy it under $80 a share. It's been moving lower since it reported but hasn't yet breached the $80 market. Today it sits at $80.55 a share....if you believe Under Armour is going to compete with Nike and Adidas for the long term, then this might be a good time to get in. Under Armour is still a young company, going public, I believe, about ten years ago. There's no dividend yet and they only have 177.30M shares outstanding. You'd have

Comments Off on Goldman Sachs Traders Gets a Twinge
So who is this trader at Goldman Sachs who can feel when the stock market is going to move? I'm guessing a lot of other hedge funds and financial firms would want to hire him and his twinge. In fact, I'm sure they'd pay him a lot of money. I picture investment firms hiring him and keeping him cozy and comfortable, feeding him grapes or whatever he desires and just waiting for that feeling or sensation to come that tells him which was the stock market is going to move:
Workers at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. are folding into the lotus

Comments Off on Cha-Ching! Ben Bernanke Joins Hedge Fund Citadel
So the former chairman of the Federal Reserve has found a job at Chicago based hedge fund Citadel. Thanks to the help of darth, the Twitter based Photoshop guru, Bernanke has been added to the homepage of Citadel's website. Looking good Mr. Bernanke.

Comments Off on Lynn Tilton – “Secret” Lives of the Super Rich
I'd say it's never a good idea to go on a show called, "Secret Lives of the Super Rich". It's just not. What does it say about you? You want to show off your wealth...for Lynn Tilton, billionaire private equity executive, it doesn't seem to have been a good idea when the SEC is interested in knowing your secrets...she is know as the "turnaround queen", but maybe should be known more as a reality TV show "star"....And if you're an investor, maybe don't put your money into funds of firms where the CEO is on reality TV shows about her
