They ain't stock pitches.
They're hype for your blog.
There's a difference.
We have all heard it said that there is no such thing as easy money. Okay, fair enough. Even lottery winnings and inheritances come with hefty emotional price tags. In fact, studies show that when people come into large, unearned windfalls, they often fail to appreciate them, and have even been known to waste the money as quickly as it came. So it seems logical to me that one should struggle and strive to find that perfect sweet spot – the one that represents the very least amount of work that’s required to appreciate the most gigantic sum of money. Heh heh heh. [more]
There are times in the course of human history when change comes riding in like a herd of wild elephants and there is nothing that the so-called “powers that be” can do to stop it. I am talking about iTunes freeing us from the tyranny of crappy albums at criminal prices. I am talking about Netflix freeing us from the disgrace of late fees and a selection of Blockbuster in-store movies that is so weak it makes me long for the variety offered in a box of Goobers. These revolutionary changes have bettered all of our lives by radically changing two of the three most important M-words – music and movies. But what about the third and arguably most important, M-word in the entire English language? I’m talking of course about moolah! (Monkey business is two words.) [more]
O Foolitos, Foolachos, Foolicitos and Fools from Every Corner of this Magnificent Globe, [more]
Check it out, Fools. A couple of years ago David G. asked me to make a video for the Fools for their annual corporate meeting. The idea was to put a face, and a real life, behind all the names that drift through Fooldom... As the world goes multimedia, this will seem more and more like some ancient relic, but it's something I really love. Digging into the Motley Fool after a horrendous business decision and horrifically unfocused career has been invaluable to me. I hope Fooldom does as much for all of you. [more]
So many people see the name TMFBreakerDan and my former name BroadwayDan and they say "you are so incredibly cool. You're like the Coolio of stockpicking." And I say with great humble-itude, that's so true. I'm a joy. A laugh riot. AND I still drop science in every pitch. I honestly think that I am a genius ranked somewhere above Copernicus and below whoever named that movie "Snakes on a Plane." This despite the fact that I can't count to ten on my fingers because I'm not sure if I should count my thumbs. What I'm getting at is this stockpicking shtick is more art than science, and I've got the munchies. The Edvard Munchies. [more]
