Comments Off on Yes, “The Number” Is An Awesome Book & You Should Read It
Yeah, so Mark Cuban already gave his take on the book, The Number, saying before you even think about investing in the stock market you should read this book, and he's very much right. This is one of those times where all the hype around a books is true. And even though the book's popularity might have come ten years after the book was written. "The Number" is very detailed in its analysis of how companies feel like it's within their right to fill their pockets while emptying the pockets of its shareholders. The books goes into

Comments Off on Jimmy Johnson Is Selling Today’s Stock Rally
Former Dallas Cowboys head coach and Fox NFL announcer, and oh yeah, first person to get voted out of Survivor Nicaragua, Jimmy Johnson, thinks today's stock rally based off the coordinated central banking rate cut, isn't going to solve the world's problems. Coach Johnson took profits and sold the news. He tweeted so this morning while perhaps catching some fish it seems like based off these tweets. This is the good life. Catching fish on down in sunny Florida and selling stocks for a profit.

Comments Off on Chinese Cave Listed on the Stock Market
I'm wondering if Muddy Waters is going to come out with a research report about this Chinese tourist attraction cave that's listed on the stock market. I'm guessing it might just be too easy for them though and they'll pass. This cave of course is easily muddied with a bit of rain or even, God forbid, a flood let's say. The cave is sort of like a mini Disneyland underground, with multicolored lights and an "exciting" luge ride". I think they even hand out free candy. The Chinese cave is known as the "Underground Grand Canyon". I'm going to

Comments Off on NY Post Says Stock Market is like a Hooker’s Drawers
This is from a few months ago but think it still rings true. The market fluctuates more than ever. I'm thinking hookers are offended with how much it's going up and down - they don't even take their drawers off that much.

Comments Off on Quote: George Clooney Says Stock Market Is Vegas Without the Girls
George Clooney talking about his villa on Lake Como in Italy said he'd rather by land than stocks:
How did you come to buy this villa? I was riding a motorcycle through the Alps [in June 2001], and my bike broke down. I knocked on this door, and they were nice enough to help out. The Heinz family owned it and offered to sell it to me. I said, “You think I have more money than I have.” [laughs] I bought it as an investment. I never liked the stock market-—to me it’s Vegas without any of the fun parts, the girls in

Comments Off on Twitter Moods Predict the Stock Market
What do you think? Does this have wings....or is it just a bunch of bunk? Everyone's looking for that extra edge in the market though. In the past there was talk of looking at trends on search terms in Google to gauge how the stock market or a certain company/sector was going to perform.  Now that's distilled down even further or faster with Twitter, where reactions and information is exchanged immediately about stocks and the economy in general.

Comments Off on Jim Cramer: Accepting It’s a Grim Stock Market
Jim Cramer joining the consensus and saying the stock market could go flat for the year before it finds a bottom. No jobs and no insight from the government into how to get the job market going again has left the caffeinated Cramer with no other choice. Maybe Cramer should call Jon Stewart and let him know he's not so mad all the time. Cramer's final thoughts in the piece were these: "Nevertheless, it is important to be realistic so as not to lead people astray, and to accept that it is possible that the market goes flat for the year
