Randoms for the Road


May peace be with you!


  • I don't have much juice left in the tank but I couldn't fa'shnizzle the end of day column. Hence the quick randoms...

  • There aren't many reasons to support a Snapper--crude is up 5+% (not a typo), internals are fugly and leadership is being hung by its toes.

  • Talk about shrinkage!

  • We knew it was coming--Hoofy is convinced that this is a healthy and necessary precursor to the year-end romp while Boo is sure that the bovine denial is rich, thick and in the early stages.

  • Elmer's Brew!

  • It is estimated that millions of trees are accidentally planted each year by squirrels who bury nuts and then forget where they hid them.

  • Volatility measures are a far cry from panic.

  • What the heck is a far cry?

  • I've learned a ton from the horse regarding corporates and a ton from Succo on the FX food chain.

  • The definition of an investment should never be a trade gone awry.

  • Citigroup (C:NYSE) pinnin' $45. Shocker!

  • The opposite sides of a dice cube always add up to seven

  • The first time Neil Glassman ever tried a S'mores!

  • I understand that lotsa trends are still favorable. Just remember that if (when) they become unfavorable, prices will already be much lower.

  • Fannie (FNM:NYSE) doesn't matter because the price says it doesn't. Enron only mattered after the price said it did.

  • Judge Toddo!

  • Is Minyanville too bearish? Perhaps, although it's not by design. We're always looking for smart, sharp and honest columnists. If they happen to be bulls, FANTASTIC! But WHO they are is more important than how they lean.

  • The Raiders are only three games outa first. (I know)

  • I'm rolling down my "mental stops" on the bear costume but 'may' take a leg out depending on the close.

  • NDX 1548 'fills' the gap created by Wednesday's opening jig.

  • I'm gonna post this, hop back to the Buzz and ride out November expiration. Man....where did 2004 go? Couldn't tell ya, but it seems like the years are racing by while we're staring at this flickering ticks. I'll say this---when it's all said and done, the last thing I wanna be remembered for is being a trader. I wanna be remembered as a good grandson, a loving child, a supportive brother, a true friend and, one day, a great dad and husband. THAT is the true definition of success. Everything else is the gravy train.

  • Have a peaceful weekend.
