  • First US Swine Flu Death

    The first death in the United States attributable to the swine flu has now occured, and conditions seem to be escalating around the globe too.


    France is expected to ask the EU to ban travel to and from Mexico, while Austria and Germany confirm cases within their borders.  Obama has even talked about shutting down schools that face infection problems or fears.


    Though travel-related stocks like CCL rebounded yesterday, I would still avoid them.  To read about what other stocks to avoid and why, I direct you to my blog, The No Buy List.

  • Continue to Avoid VMWare

    I have previously written about VMWare on my blog, Student Stocks. VMW provides many different IT services to corporations and consumers, primarily focusing on virtualization and cloud computing.

    I last wrote about them exactly one year ago on the day of an earnings release; back then, shares traded at $56. Today shares only fetch $26.

    I published a brief article about the challenges that VMWare continues to face.  Even at $26, shares still look overvalued. Check out the full post at The No Buy List.
