  • Wall Street Breakfast: Here Comes The GDP Revision [View article]
    I was hoping that Good News Thursday would be enough positive news to carry us through negative days Husker Bob.

    Gloom and Doom Friday is getting in the way of my Flying Under The Radar Friday...

    wyostocks,

    Considering that the FIFA investigation is a DOJ operation, I would wager that if the banks were/are involved that they would be fined and continue with business as usual. Amazing to me that the head of FIFA has not been charged and will be re-elected today to continue running FIFA. Typical DOJ investigation: Forget the person in charge and focus on everyone else.

    While Mr. Dimon has been in charge of JPM, they have racked up over $30B in fines. Imagine the number of jobs $30B could pay for...

    Have a great day.

    Good Morning to all WSB readers.

    Flying Under the Radar Friday.

    FIFA scandal has Russia's Vlad Putin saying that the US is "meddling" with FIFA in order to secure 2018 World Cup which is schedule to take place in...you guessed it: Russia.

    JP Morgan is laying off some 5,000 employees as the bank closes branches. No word from Jamie Dimon since he called investors in JPM that voted against pay raises "irresponsible." More on the lay-offs here:

    Abercrombie & Fitch reported another poor quarter on Thursday yet the stock "surged" almost 10%. When $KORS reported and was "in line" but gave conservative guidance the stock fell some 25%. That silly Mr. Market just doesn't make sense sometimes. More here:
    http://tinyurl.com/p3o...

    That's it for FUTR Friday. Feel free to toss out some of your own under the radar news.

    Ironic or moronic? FIFA lining up to re-elect president Sepp Blatter today. Mr. Blatter said that the recent arrests of some 14 FIFA officials will now clear the way for FIFA to operate more cleanly. WHAT?????? If you have any interest in FIFA mess, watch ESPN report by Jeremy Schapp.

    Where is Jon Corzine and will he cast a vote for FIFA president Sepp Blatter today?

    Have a great day and a wonderful weekend. Stay safe, sage and sane out there.

    Nice "Animal House" reference.

    We could use more of those on WSB before we are all placed on double-secret probation.

  • Under Armour rides Stephen Curry while FIFA scandal taints peers [View news story]
    He wears UA sneakers and plays the majority of the minutes in each game. Not wearing a UA hat or shirt after the game is no big deal and I believe that the NBA has specific hats and shirts for post game celebrations.

    Any GNT comments?...(cue the sound of crickets)

    Nike could be implicated in the FIFA mess, according to Bloomberg.

    Good News #2- $UA

    Under Armour has hit the jackpot with Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors reaching the NBA finals.

    Long UA and loving it.

  • Dimon takes the stage at Bernstein conference [View news story]
    Over $30B in fines under Mr. Dimon's "leadership."

    It's not "hating" if one states facts.

    How good is it that the Durant deal fell through for UA?

    While Curry has been lights out, Golden State is a team and plays like one. They are not Steph Curry's Golden State Warriors. He would be the first to say this, I would imagine.

    Mr. Carlini,

    Your question is certainly a good one. Why would the US DOJ spend the money on this investigation?

    Apparently the folks at the DOJ believe that Fraud and Shenanigans are two people who they hope will stop by the DOJ for a cup of coffee!

    FIFA President Sepp Blatt has run a corrupt organization for years. Bribes have been part of the World Cup selection process since he has been in charge.

    Amazing how ESPN had to "break" the story on FIFA before the DOJ felt it was worth their time to investigate.

    When will DOJ officials raid the International Olympic Committee?

    Have a great day sir.

    Good Morning to all WSB readers.

    Good News Thursday is here! Share some positive comments on stocks, investing, or anything else.

    Here is mine:

    1. FIFA President Sepp Blatt has not been charged by the DOJ. Why would the head of FIFA be charged with taking bribes when all signs to point to him? Good news for FIFA? Now it appears that some banks could be involved? JPM and "Mr. Responsible" Jamie Dimon have no comment, which is good news.

    In other news, McDonald's is targeting "bun toasting and burger searing." Good news for those who frequent Mickey D's, I would think.

    $GALE getting some attention after a long vacation. Not sure if anyone is familiar with this company.

    Where is Jon Corzine and will he be running for one of the soon to be vacant FIFA positions?

    Have a great day everyone. Stay safe, sage, and sane out there.

    How irresponsible is it for a CEO to ring up over $30B in fines while running JPM?

    How in the world can 14 FIFA officials be charged but FIFA president Sepp Blatter is not charged?

    Must be a DOJ investigation. Never charge the CEO or President with anything...ever....

    The corruption starts at the top, dear DOJ. THE TOP! That would be president Blatter!

    Are they kidding with this?

    FIFA corruption has been going on for years. ESPN had a great 30 for 30 on it. Jeremy Schapp reported.

    If FIFA is the focus, the IOC (Olympics) should be shredding documents as I type.

    MF Global youth soccer team finished 3-8-1 in their only season.
