Comments Off on President Obama Wearing a Fitbit Surge
So what is President Obama wearing on his wrist? What kind of watch is that? Is it an Apple Watch? No, it's actually a Fitbit Surge. Can hackers hack into a Fitbit device...? I hope not. But to get to the point, if the President of the United States is using and wearing a Fitbit, does that mean the stock is a buy? Does it mean that more people are going to try wearing a Fitbit...? Who knows. Obama's still using a Blackberry, mainly for security reasons, but it certainly hasn't meant that everyone is using a Blackberry, just look

FitBit’s the Top Free App, Is the Stock a Buy?

Comments Off on FitBit’s the Top Free App, Is the Stock a Buy?
Should you buy FitBit's stock? It looks like a lot of people got FitBit's for Christmas. The stock has been beaten down, is it time to buy it? There's been talk, by Jim Cramer for one, of Apple buying FitBit, which would be amazing and also unlikely to me since they're still trying to perfect the Apple Watch - which will become a fitness tracker and health band too, right... Just in my daily goings and comings around town I've seen a lot of people wearing FitBit bands and talking about how many steps they need for the day and so

GoPro CEO Nick Woodman Buys Yacht

Comments Off on GoPro CEO Nick Woodman Buys Yacht
It's all fine and well if GoPro CEO Nick Woodman wants to use his money to buy a 180-foot yacht from Dutch yacht-builders Amels, but doesn't it take some gall to buy the yacht when GoPro's stock is getting crushed. What about those shareholders who bought shares of GoPro when over $80 a share? The stock trades for $18 now and has a market capitalization of $2.5 billion. Is it a sign that Woodman believes GoPro's stock is at or near a bottom? Is it a sign that the company can grow once again? I say this because

Comments Off on Isis Pharmaceuticals Changes Name to Ionis Pharmaceuticals
There's actually a company called Isis Pharmaceuticals.....? Not anymore. Isis Pharmaceuticals has finally changed their company name to Ionis Pharmaceuticals. And their stock ticker is now IONS instead of ISIS. Can you blame Isis Pharmaceuticals, I mean Ionis...? I just wonder why it took them this long to change their name? How come it took them a whole year to change their name? After all, their stock dropped after the Paris attack that ISIS claimed responsibility! I guess that was the last straw, not all the beheadings ISIS was doing before. And they had to "deliberate" about this. Well, Isis

Comments Off on Howard Lindzon Is Buying More Under Armour Shares
The great Howard Lindzon, creator of StockTwits and famous for calling CitiBank sh$tty bank live on CNBC, is buying more shares of Under Armour right here and now as it dips below $80 a share. This is for his long term position. Interestingly, a little over six months ago, Jim Cramer was saying you should buy Under Armour under $80 a share, too. Actually, I guess Howard thought that Under Armour's stock moved too much so

Comments Off on Is Jim Cramer the Last Man Eating at Chipotle…?
You have to think this E. coli scare will go on for some time for Chipotle and also hurt its healthy food brand quite a bit. But, while people have gotten sick, I don't think anybody has ended up in the hospital and Chipotle is doing their best to be out in front of this crisis - they're not trying to hide. One man who's supporting Chipotle with his stomach is CNBC's Jim Cramer. Who's still eating Chipotle's burritos. Cramer ain't afraid. Not sure if Cramer is buying the stock though, as it goes under $500 a share.

Comments Off on Jim Cramer Didn’t Hire or Work with Martin Shkreli
Did Martin Shkreli work with Jim Cramer at his old hedge fund? There are all sorts of financial blogs/websites saying Martin Shkreli was Jim Cramer's intern or protege but Cramer tweeted out a different take on this. In fact, Cramer says he wasn't even at his firm when Shkreli was hired....

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
