    A bad haircut and nuclear weapons. He should stick to crescent rolls.

    XOM is in good shape, IMO.

    Long AAPL and added shares of DIS this week.

    Analysts are like weather forecasters. When correct, we get the old "I told you so"....when incorrect, you can hear crickets chirping....

    Thanks gggl...I don't think the rally failed...I do think that Wall Street "experts" failed in choosing "dead cat bounce" to describe anything in the investing world...

    Anyone else looking to build on portfolio positions today?

    Imitation is the highest form of flattery, so we are told. Goldman Sachs is feeling very flattered after finding out that there is a fake Goldman Sachs operating in China. That's right, Goldman Sachs Financial Leasing Company is open for business in China! It seems that upon further review, the "new" Goldman Sachs may have links to organized crime syndicates operating in Macau.
    The fake apple doesn't fall far from the tree, so it seems.

    The Pentagon is teaming up with Apple, Boeing, Harvard and others to develop high-tech sensory gear flexible enough to be worn by people or molded onto the outside of a jet. The U.S. government is contributing $75 million over five years, he said, and companies, managed by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, will add $90 million, with local governments chipping in more to take the total to $171 million, according to a Reuters report.

    Anyone else singing REM's classic, "It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine" today? The roller coaster that is the stock market has an odd way of balancing out.

    Dead cat bounce? That's what some were saying the other day. I am not a dead cat expert, but I have to imagine that they only bounce once. If the market is up for several days in a row, I don't think it is considered a dead cat bounce. Leave it to Wall Street to coin such a strange phrase.

    StockTalk anyone? While politics usually rules the day on WSB, maybe some might want to chime in with their Top Stock pick(s) going forward in 2015. My top stock pick for year remains Disney (DIS). Nothing to indicate that this amazing company will limp to the finish line. Following recent events, investors can find DIS at a very attractive price. Coming in 2nd place is UPS. Huge season upcoming for the delivery giant. What can Brown do for your portfolio? (StockTalk is a deercreekvols exclusive)

    Where is Jon Corzine and will he set up a fake MF Global in China?

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

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments !! Chapter 134...... [View instapost]
    Congratulations on Chapter 134.

    PC3 portfolio will make its move when Disney does...watch out for the Star Wars numbers and solid Holiday outlook...the marathon has someone sprinting out to a 70% gain?...YIKES...lots of time to rebound, but 70% is going to be tough to match...UGAZ anyone?

    Seems that we went from summer to fall this week in WNY. Low 60s today, evening in the 40s...leaves starting to turn (I raked some today after mowing)...could be a long winter if we are going to start fall in August...

    Hope all are well and have weathered the storm that is the stock market...last few days seemed to show lots of green...long haul for me, so I take what I can get and collect dividends...

    Cheers on this Thursday night.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: World Stocks Don Rally Caps [View article]
    The friendly folks in the Outer Banks, NC had no trouble taking cash when we were there at the beginning of August. Also used my debit card at the pump on the way there and back...not enough in my checking account to panic over if something were to go amiss...no issues...

    I guess I am a fool.

    How's the new roller coaster at Carowinds?

    Saw it featured on a science show and realized I haven't been to that park in over 30 years. Coaster is the highest in the world, if I am not mistaken...or was back in the spring...

    Sitting in my straight jacket typing with my big toes-

    BUY, BUY, BUY-lots of stocks holding back-to-school sales.

    I know your out there
    You're in hiding
    And you hold your meetings

    Barclays has no worries about rigging their "dark pool" to favor high frequency trading, according to a Federal judge. What a surprise! Dollars to donuts that the judge in question has some close "friends" on Wall Street. The bigger issue is not whether things were rigged, it is: Why are there "dark pools" and HFT? There very nature puts individual investors at a disadvantage.

    Rumor is that Six Flags is considering a Wall Street themed roller coaster. Slow and steady climb to the top, then a drop that leaves riders sick to their stomachs. Throw in a couple of twists and loops, a few more climbs and smaller dips-Bingo! Fun for all! Ride may be sponsored by Too Big To Fail Banks.

    I miss Greece being in the news every day. At least you could count on nothing new.

    Interested to learn what the top hedge funds have been doing over the last week or so. It was a rough year for many and I'm curious if some managers were buyers.

    Puerto Rico cutting spending to schools and healthcare. There's a plan that's destine to fail in the long-run. How in the world can you expect better things when you harm education and healthcare for your citizens?

    Where is Jon Corzine and when did gain control of the Puerto Rican parliament?

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

    Diversification is usually enough to weather the storms, but in this case the barber didn't care about sectors and just gave everyone a crew-cut.
    I did notice that some holdings in my portfolios were harder hit than others, but most were trimmed.

    Good thing that I have had the same haircut for the last 25 years. I am asked all the time if I am a Trooper or in the military.

    The market will even out. Apple CEO says positive things about China, so all is not lost.

    Holding on to the bar of the roller coaster with both hands-
    Time is on my side, as The Stones once said, and it is.
    7-10 year window before retirement- can take the ups and downs
    Added shares if DIS, FRO, MDLZ, and PLPM over the last few days.

    How about you al?
