Long time without posting, so here's a quick update: 2 years to retirement from the Navy (finally). Still working on my MBA (Keller Graduate School). Fun times (not really). Preparing to walk the Komen Global walk for the Cure in DC, walking for my Mom and my wife's Aunt. (Yeah, I'm trying to raise donation $ for them as well, if you are interested message me and I'll send you the link to my "personal" fundraising page. [more]
No stocks or business news today. Want to share a link to my own personal fundraising page I started for Team Rubicon. If you haven't heard of Team Rubicon, in a nutshell, they are a group of former and current military members that go around the country doing disaster relief/recovery work. Their work is amazing. It gives former military members an opportunity to take part in another "mission" when they return from their last mission, which is a great tool for reintegration. I am a member, and am doing my first mission with the Team next weekend in Virginia Beach, doing some painting and tidying up for a veterans-associated house/office. [more]
Great afternoon spent at FOOL HQ with Bill Mann and the FoolFund team (and a lot of the Fool HQ team as well). Good discussions had by all. I especially appreciated hearing Tom Gardner (Top Fool) speak to the group and he went out of his way to say hello to me and thank me for coming as I was leaving. That was cool. [more]
Field trip to FOOL HQ getting underway! All aboard!
It's been a slow week around here. Haven't done any trading, but have sat back and watch my gain in WETF drop from 90% to 75% (about). I'm okay with it though, since I am playing with the houses money already. And I'm still waiting for ELSE to pick up steam, although considering the speculative nature of that stock it might be a while (or just might not ever pick up steam). [more]
