Comments Off on Martha Stewart Called the Oil Drop with Her Tweet….
Martha Stewart tweeted simply, " Oil". She was a bit early, but it appears Martha Stewart called the oil drop with this tweet a few years ago. Whenever there's a big change in the price of oil, really up or down, this tweet gets tweeted around financial Twitter. I could picture Martha Stewart in my head, you know, "that women who does cooking shows and home decoration type of stuff and spent time in prison for insider trading", but just couldn't think of her name. So I had to Google "insider trading cooking lady" and the first result was Martha

Comments Off on When Chipotle’s Stock Caught E. Coli
This is a 5 year chart of Chipotle's stock from Bloomberg. Back on August 14th the stock hit nearly $750 a share but then the E. coli bacteria scare happened and is still happening and there's really no telling when it will end. Who's willing to step in and buy Chipotle's stock when every few days there's a new state saying they have an outbreak of the E. coli bacteria at Chipotle. Moreover, what effect does this have on Chipotle's brand for the long run....who's claim to fame is their high quality food. Chipotle isn't like other fast casual restaurants,

Comments Off on Trump Says Amazon’s Stock Would Crash If It Paid “Fair Taxes”
After going after Macy's stock over and over again, Trump decides to take a shot at Amazon.com and Jeff Bezos. Now Trump says Amazon's stock would crash if it had to pay, "fair taxes". So, when Trump is president of the United States Amazon.com will pay "fair taxes"....is that what he's saying or does he really even have any idea what he's saying anymore. And I wonder how many of Trump's The Art of the Deal books are bought on Amazon.com...? Of course, Amazon doesn't just sell books anymore, they pretty much do everything. Oh, and maybe Trump isn't

Comments Off on The Black Swan’s Feats of Strength
Who's the strongest man on Wall Street...? Is it Nassim Nicholas Taleb? Author of the book on risk, The Black Swan. Is this something that Fox Business reporter Charlie Gasparino can do? Gasparino is known to work out in the park during his breaks, running and doing pull ups. What about Mark Zuckerberg....? He sometimes looks like he's been lifting.... He explains the lift further in another tweet: "The idea is to deadlift 450 one-max-rep and 350 for 3 sets of 5 *after* the age of 60. Not what happens before."

Comments Off on Trump Still Pleased to See Macy’s Struggling…Calls Macy’s Disloyal
Why is Trump happy to see an American company struggling? And shouldn't Trump worry about his daughter's brand, which is still selling at Macy's? It's nice to see Trump take time to tweet about Macy's stock while he's running for president. Disloyal....is Trump some kind of king? They sold his ties, not some ingenius device he created. Ties that weren't made in the United States, but in China, a counrty he disparages. For Trump, it's all about loyalty, no matter what, even if Macy's did the right thing by discontinuing their partnership with Trump after his comments about Mexican immigrants.

Comments Off on What Price Does Twitter’s Stock Want?
Should you buy shares of Twitter? It seems like Twitter's stock is still trying to find a price or value. Right now it trades around $25 a share but not sure if that holds. There's no doubt Twitter is a very useful and amazing tool but it just doesn't get as much respect as Facebook in terms of pricing power for its stock. And deservedly so, it just doesn't make as much money. But Twitter is the future, right? Twitter's not going away. I'd argue that people will get bored of Facebook although maybe not Instagram... But Twitter's not going anywhere

Comments Off on Area Man Buys Ice Cream at Shop That Uses Square
President Obama bought some ice cream at an ice cream shop that uses Square for its payment system. Square, cleverly and smartly, tweeted out this picture of Obama and his daughters buying said ice cream with the Square payment device front and center. A nice ad for Square's merchant services. Square has a market cap of 3.84 billion right now, supposedly that were worth $6 billion less than a month ago before going public. How popular is Square? How will their loaning money to small businesses work out? Square claims to have the ability to use all the data they collect
