What is your buy-in point?

January 31, 2014 – Comments (16) | RELATED TICKERS: P , RICE

So far this week, I have seen it at least four times.  "I will buy XYZ as soon as it drops to $37.20.  I plan to sell RRR once it reaches $53.42."  HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?   [more]

What is the best computer out there?

January 24, 2014 – Comments (15)

Do you ever wonder if I go through life with the grace of Lucy (as in I Love Lucy)?  I seem to get myself into some definite scrapes.  The latest is with my computer.  I picked it up - yes, of course it is a laptop - started to carry it down the hall, and bumped it, ever so gently, into a door.  I now have 3" top to bottom that is still readable.  The rest of the screen looks like an Etch-a-Sketch that has been badly shaken.  Soooo -   [more]

Something is strange here....

Heah in the South, there ah things we have and like, like sweet tea, and things we do not have and mostly don't miss, like snow and Cold temperatures.  So when I wake to several inches of snow and a temp of 14, I have to wonder if this is some sort of oddity brought about by reverse global warming.  Our high of the day was 59...posted last night at midnight.  Me thinks I should have gone out and bought a winter coat this year, even though most years I go all winter without putting one on!  I went to bed last night with snow falling, saying prayers for anyone, man or beast, that was out in the storm for any reason, and for those folks who would have to be out this morning.  I know it has nothing to do with investing, but this is the kind of weather that I have not seen for almost 20 years.   [more]



A Whole New Arena of Dumb Question

January 02, 2014 – Comments (9) | RELATED TICKERS: TWTR

Once upon a time (2008,) I signed into a site called Motley Fool and began learning about investing.  I found friends, knowledge, enjoyment, and, astoundingly, profits.  It appears that I need some knowledge in a new area - well, new to me.  I have stock in Twitter, but I do not have a Twitter account.  I could not understand why I might need it.  You people are pushing me toward it.  Porte is posting his brilliance on Twitter at #zzporte.  Having checked out his feed pre-Twitter, I know that he is offering pure gold.  Now Quantemonics is offering his Victory Formation system on Twitter.  And yes, I read his post thinking that he was going to evaluate Twitter, not post on it.  Got it.  Logged on to CAPS.  Two of the first posts read offered information to be offered via Twitter.  Obviously this is a trend.  I need to get a Twitter account to keep up.  Since I figured out long ago that my role here was to ask the silly, the stupid, the foolish, the dumb questions for me and for anyone else who wanted to learn, here is a new one for you scholars of all things cutting edge ---  HOW DO I OPEN A TWITTER ACCOUNT?  [more]
