  • Danger ! Stock Market Top Might Be In Sight 0 comments

    The news this weekend that Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Company - KKR - are in advanced talks to buy Brickman Group for 1.5 billion marks a turning point for the Stock Market.Brickman is the largest commercial landscape company in the United States with operations in 29 states.Private equity firm KKR either is making a huge bet on the U.S. economy or trying to corner the lawn maintenance of a large sector of the country.Back in the day before trading stocks, I was a Landscape Supervisor with a small but powerful outfit that worked all over the state of New Jersey.The Boss had the Midas touch when outbidding other companies for lucrative Landscaping contracts.He rode a high horse making his name known throughout the state.Some of what I observed during those years watching him has contributed to my success as a business owner.I never forget those years as they prepared me for the rough world of trading stocks.Finally his success reached a peak the day that Brickman entered the state with their ubiquitous Brown trucks.I remembered a joke at the time that one could not drive down the road without seeing a Brickman or UPS truck every five minutes.We know how it turned out for United Parcel Service - UPS - will KKR hit a home run here? Maybe they will or this may end up as a Stock Market Top.Either way the Brown trucks will continue to roll down the lush green highway.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in KKR over the next 72 hours.
