I could use some hugs...but I've just about had enough squeezing.
- Boo needs a lady friend to calm him down. We'll call it the Taming of the Boo.
- IF (big if) the market was going to close lower on the day, it needed to be up in the morning.
- Hewlett Packard (HPQ:NYSE) earnings tonight.
- A dead cat dollar bounce (and a corresponding correction in gold) shouldn't shock anyone. The only question is one of degree.
- The financials aren't giving a solid read yet. The brokers are heavy but the piggies are holding on to Cliff Branch.
- Quotas on lingerie? Looks like Daisy's getting appliances this holiday season.
- "The winning political formula is to promise everything to everyone. Meanwhile, the first law of economics is scarcity. Paper money is the bridge between politics and reality."-- Porter Stansberry
- Don't think, Meat. Just throw.
- Breadth is trying to creep "better" and currently stands 4:3 positive.
- I don't wanna know where the phrase "dead cat bounce" comes from.
- The story on the dollar and the China trade restrictions got surprisingly little play on television last night.
- Is everybody trading the same levels?
- Europe, while off its lows, is down about .5%.
- Rizzo's got a bun in the oven!
- I applaud weeding out the criminal element on Wall Street. I do think, however, that we have to be careful of a witch hunt. Not everyone is a "bad guy" (although there are plenty of 'em).
- Are the bad guys the "pricks" that pop the psychology bubble?
- The homies have come in after the housing start pop.
- Beeks will drop off the initial claims (exp. 365k), continuing claims (exp. 3515k), leading indicators (exp. .2%) and the Philly cheese steak (exp. 25) tomorrow.
- If you work out twice as hard for half the time, is it the same thing?
- The internets, biotechs and semis bode well for the bounce holdage. To fade--or not to fade--is a function of time horizon and risk appetite.
- Hey you in the back with the French braids--what do you want to be when you grow up?
- Does money buy happiness? Some of the richest people I know don't have two dimes to rub together. I also know rich people who are absolutely miserable (and are intent on making others miserable as well). I won't belittle its importance in society (we are in a capitalist business) but it's not everything, cookie. Sometimes it takes real hardship--such as illness or death of a loved one--to make us see that light.
- If you haven't visited Main Street lately, please take the time to check it out in time for your holiday season. 10% of the net proceeds from Harrison's Department Store will be donated to the Ruby Peck Foundation for Children's Education.
