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

Comments Off on Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan Has Been Selling Some Shares
So, a while back, quite a while back, Brian Moynihan said all his net worth is tied up in Bank of America shares. It was said to affirm just how much he believed in Bank of America. This was back when it wasn't really known whether Bank of America would survive the Great Recession and the housing collapse and paying all those legal fees and settlements. But now, with Bank of America actually doing fairly well, you can't blame CEO Brian Moynihan for selling a few shares worth in the range of a couple million. Although you'd think

Comments Off on Janet Yellen’s Biotech Call
So Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen said that it was time to sell biotech stocks back in July of last year. She was wrong or at least way too early, but is now time to head her call? This is what she said this past summer about biotech stocks being stretched:
“Valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially stretched–particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year,” the Fed said in the report.

Comments Off on Henry Blodget’s Thoughts on Starbucks’ Stock
So Starbucks hit a 52 week high today, edging closer and closer to $100 a share. Henry Blodget shared his thoughts on why Starbucks' stock is doing so well. You'd have to say he pretty much nailed it. Remember when Starbucks was trading for $9 a share around 2009? Wow, what an opportunity as you look back... Yeah, Starbucks was closing shops around that time when the Great Recession hit. There were so many, there was that joke about Starbucks opening a Starbucks in the bathroom of a Starbucks. There were just too many of them on nearly every corner, but

Comments Off on Will Apple Design a Marijuana Pipe (Medicinal of Course)
Who cares about the Apple watch or the Apple car or the Apple TV, I wonder if Sir Jonathan Paul Ive is interested in designing a device to deliver THC...it's legal in Colorado, Washington, and Oregon. Heck, I think you can even smoke marijuana in Washington, DC. But Apple's new watch does track some medical and health information, perhaps Apple would start with a pipe for those with a medical need for smoking weed - cancer patients for instance. Can you picture Apple CEO Tim Cook saying one last thing, and then introducing the iPipe or iVape...

Comments Off on Oil’s Shark Teeth Pattern
So the "shark teeth" oil chart pattern is coming true. If you look at the price of oil the past few months you see it shoot up and then shoot right back down, just as Paul Sankey predicted...is there a way to trade this? What's the low in oil that we'll bounce off of? If you only had a crystal ball....perhaps though it's time to build a long term position in oil?
All the additional supply waiting in the wings creates more volatility and uncertainty. Global prices should average $56 a barrel this year, with ups and downs making a “shark’s

Comments Off on Everything You Need to Know About the Apple Watch
I think these two tweets pretty much sums it up as far as the Apple Watch goes....really, who's going to pay so much money for the first iteration of the Apple Watch? Yeah, a lot of people, but is it something you really need to buy on the first go around? I know the Apple Watch and the iPhone work "together", but is that what we want...? I thought

Comments Off on Warren Buffett Loves the Geico Gecko
In his latest shareholder letter, Warren Buffett talks about how much he loves the Geico Gecko. Why? Can you guess? Yes, it has something to do with saving money. It's because the Gecko is cheap and doesn't ask to be paid more money no matter how popular he gets. Who came up with the Geico Gecko ad campaign, The Martin Agency. Not sure how much Buffett or Geico's marketing department paid the Martin Agency to come up with

Comments Off on Does This Chart Say Buy or Sell Oil?
Here's the ten year chart of the United States Oil Fund (ETF), after taking a look at it would you buy or sell oil? Just before the Great Recession, the USO ETF was trading at a high of $117, today it's just above $18 a share. That's quite a drop. And even during the world wide economic slow down the USO ETF hovered around $35 a share. Now, what with the U.S. economy back on track, the USO ETF has tumbled down to as low as $16 a share. Sure, there's a lot more oil on the market what with the
