Trimming the Hedge

September 28, 2007 – Comments (2)

So I'm Barney J. Fife, and I run MUTUAL FUND EPSILON out on Wall St.  Maybe it's a hedge fund, maybe it's just a Fidelity sector fund.  The end of the quarter is coming up so I invite my buddy, Schuyler H. Goldthwaite, out for martinis and steaks at Smith and Wollensky.  Schuyler manages MUTUAL FUND DELTA and we are both concerned about our end of quarter results.  [more]

I'm not seeing a whole heck of a lot of buys lately.  I ducked out of China Telecom as these big boys started the recent price wackiness, took my 45% and ran with it, so I have a little cash, but there's no stock begging for my attention.  [more]

Let's check the HALFTIME SCOREBOARD, Ken!

That's right - it's WALL STREET 1, AMERICA'S ECONOMY 0!

Yaaaaaaaaaay!  GO-O-O-O-O, TEAM! 



Two Tickers, One Company

Recently I was checking out Benihana here on CAPS.  I discovered that the company has two ticker symbols, BNHN and BNHNA.  Chipotle (CMG and CMG-A) also has a preferred A-share but it's much easier to figure out what's going on with that because there are more analysts paying attention and the financials are more transparent.  [more]
