Comments Off on Donald Trump Says Wall Street Banks Are Wimpy
Donald Trump says Wall Street banks need to fight harder against lawsuits and not settle so easily. Trump also says that all those regulations from Dodd Frank need to be repealed. So is a vote for Trump a vote to make Wall Street great again or is it the path to another financial crisis in the future? I wonder if Trump would loan out some of his attorneys to make all these lawsuits against Wall Street banks miraculously go away...?

Comments Off on Netflix Hasn’t Won Yet (They don’t have a monopoly on online movies)
Remember when Netflix sent DVDs in those red envelopes in the MAIL. Yes, the mail. And they still do to some people, but surely an increasingly smaller and smaller number. But I bring this up because that was the time to buy Netflix shares. Yet how did you know they were going to pretty seamlessly transition to the web and start to create their own content, like "House of Cards"? You had to believe in the stock and Reed Hastings. Now, while Netflix does have competition, they are building a strong brand and customer loyalty. What's more, they're creating content that's

Comments Off on Nordic American Tanker CEO Herbjorn Hansson is a Legend
If only more CEOs on Wall Street were like Herbjorn Hansson, CEO of Nordic American Tanker. Just take a listen to him in the video below. He speaks candidly. He's not borrowing too much money, he cares about the employees on his ships, and he cares about the environment - doesn't want any of his tankers to crash, of course. No wonder the stock went up as he spoke on CNBC. However, what am I missing about the dividend, which seem absurdly high at nearly 15%....? I wish they'd asked Herbjorn Hansson about that.

In the stock market, if it's too easy it probably is. When buying stocks, if something comes right to you like it's served up on a platter to smash for a home run, then it's probably too easy and too good to be true. Take FitBit, remember when they were the leading free app just after Christmas, and the stock seems like a sure buy? Well, it's only been cut in half since then. Remember when oil couldn't go lower? It went lower and lower. Remember when the Fed was going to raise interest rates and that would be

Comments Off on The Amazon Chart Everyone’s Talking About…
When will Amazon start making money...? Well, Amazon does make money but nearly as much as they should or could or someday will. But will that day come...? Sales for Amazon are going start up on the chart below but the net profits line is nearly flat. Right now, all Amazon cares about is growing in size and getting you products faster and faster with Amazon Prime. I guess the idea is that once they take over every market they'll have a monopoly and then they can start raising prices when everyone else is out of business....is that Jeff Bezos' plan
