If there's a Wall Street. If there's a stock market. If there are stocks to trade. Then these stock tips will hold true at any stage of the market and you're free to use them to your advantage to buy stocks. Although they might seem vague and a bit hard to decipher, they are spouted out of the mouths of people on financial television hundreds of times a week if not a day. In other words, you can't go wrong if you follow one of these axioms of the stock market whether it's a Bull or Bear. Well, at least
Something refreshing from Jack Welch for a change, although some Apple shareholders might not want to hear this right now what with the stock down so much. But for long term Apple stock holders, who want to see the company keep growing in the next ten or twenty years, this seems like a smart take.
On CNBC Jack Welch said
Apple needs to have the cash and the flexibility to move on an acquisition in a turbulent market. "He's got Samsung and everyone nipping at his heels. And he risks running, rather than a sexy company, a commodities

Well, well, looks like this turned out to be quite the call by President Obama. Back in March of 2009, with the stock market on shaky ground, the Dow Jones at 6726, Obama said
you should look to buy some stocks. Today of course the Down Jones is well over 14,000.
“What you’re now seeing is profit and earning ratios are starting to get to the point where buying stocks is a potentially good deal, if you’ve got a long-term perspective on it.”

I actually thought this was a little bit tame for Jim Cramer's Mad Money show. I mean come on, it was good but why not have Cramer dancing like a Mad Man pouring cans of Red Bull on top of his head as he does one armed push ups.

On Wall Street, it seems, the more aggressive and reckless the stock trader the more money he's going to make - the bigger the bonus. And, even if he loses a lot of money, it's not his money and he's then potentially valuable to another trading firm if he does in fact actually get fired for losing said money.
The incentives are horribly skewed towards risky trading. The stock trader who loses money might go to jail if they're caught doing something illegal (even jail time is rare though), but if they're just making risky trades, which the firm he

Apple CEO Tim Cook, speaking at the Goldman Sachs conference today, said if he's feeling bad he'll just go into an Apple store and it's like taking Prozac. Once you walk into an Apple store ten thousand angels descend down to sing to your heart and lift up your soul - well, he didn't say all that but you get the idea:
Apple stores aren't for just for selling, but for service. Get more out of Apple products over life of them. It's a gather place that has important role in the community. If you look at agenda, might be youth

Really, this seems like a strange story to me. Why would an actress get into day trading stocks and try to gain publicity or attention for it? Doesn't Rachael Fox want to focus on acting?
Or is this a way for her to get exposure and more acting jobs...she could have just traded stocks without seeking out exposure for it. Instead, she seems to be trying to start a business and company around it, with a website (www.foxonstocks.com
) and so on.
She's only 16 years old. Who's behind this - there must be someone behind the scenes sort

It would be nice, particularly for current Apple shareholders, if Apple surprised everyone with a Superbowl commercial on par with their ad for the Mac back in 1984. Wouldn't that be awesome. Blow everyone out of the water with a surprise ad. Samsung certainly has been targeting Apple with some ads the past few months, saying Apple's not cool anymore and saying their trademark cases
against them are just foolish. What if Apple released an ad for the new Apple TV today. Come on, I hope they do. Still, don't think any thing can beat this ad:

The E*Trade baby is back just in time for the Super Bowl. The E*TRADE Baby has a couple ideas up his sleeve for spending the money you could be losing to hidden fees in your 401(k). In the end, the Baby offers an even better idea, "come to E*TRADE, and Save It." If only it were that easy. What would be helpful for many is if the E*Trade baby could tell you when or if Apple's stock is going to start going back up again.

After the lights at the World Economic Forum dimmed on Friday, Facebook billionaire Sean Parker threw the most talked-about party in Davos. It featured a "taxidermy" theme where the heads of the animals had green laser eyes. Not sure if he killed some of the animals himself or not.
The guest list included billionaire bankers mingling with music stars - John Legend was on the piano. The head honchos of Goldman Sachs were there, newly bearded Lloyd Blankfein and Gary Cohn, along with Yahoo's Marissa Mayer, hedge fund manager Dan Loeb, and Jimmy Wales, creator of Wikipedia.
The party really got
