Alstry's Back and Congratulations to Columbia1
This is what CAPs started out to accomplish...
The vast majority of online investors aren’t looking to play a game; they’re looking to cut through all the noise out there and find an information provider who can give them an edge to make better investing decisions, to make more money.
MAKE BETTER INVESTMENT DECISIONS!!!!!
Let's me tell you, trying to go long in a market against an economy entering into a Depression is truly a recipie for failure. And if you think we are about to turn this ship, you may want to stop drinking the kool-aid now or find where you want to be burried.
I am getting tired of this positive nonsense....IT SUCKS OUT THERE and its getting a lot WORSE!!!!! It's fine to be positive in your personal life, but don't BS yourself into some fantasy that doesn't exist with your investing.
When you have an environment like we have, if you are not prepared, YOU WILL DIE economically. Is it the end of the world? not even close.....but let me tell you from personal experience, its a lot more fun being rich than poor....don't let anyone fool you otherwise.
There are a bunch of wimps out there, DON"T BE ONE OF THEM. Take control of your life and NEVER let anyone tell you what to say or do so long as it remains within acceptable limits......we live in a nation where we have freedoms and we should be damm proud to exercise them.
I can promise you this....the mainstream media will now start to come accross in a very similar fashion like I used to a year ago.....most of you will be afraid.....DON'T BE!!!! For most of you that read this blog, you knew what was coming and hopefully you are prepared.
Expect the DOW to go below 2000.....heck, that is where it was 1990-91 less than 20 years ago. No big deal. Expect unemployment to rise above 20%.....again no big deal as long as you are prepared. We are deleveraging the BIGGEST CREDIT bubble in history...what the hell do you expect?
Screw the wimps.....they are all over the place and they want your money. They are bankers crying for handouts. They are people that borrowed way more than they could afford and now want to be "saved." They are bloggers who boast about their success make fun of others and cry when called on the carpet. They are politicans that love you when they are fundraising and love to spend your money even more. WIMPS are EVERYWHERE as we becoming such a soft society.
I have never heard so much nonsensical noise as I do now. Stuff I was blogging about a year ago is finally hitting the press? You gotta be kidding me?????
You want to be positive, that is great. But this blog is about investing, cutting through the noise and giving sound investment advice.
On that note I would like to congratulate Columbia1 for beating me in my contest of picking the most relatively overvalued company. We both picked stocks to red thumb and mine was Mohawk and his was Las Vegas Sands. My pick was down about 45% since early November and his was down almost 66%.
My friend Columbia beat me fair and square and it was my privelege to compeat against him.
Here is the fun part about those that practice Alstrynomics, the loser BEAT the market by about 66% in less than four months, the winner beat the market by over 80% in the same time frame. FIND ME A SINGLE MUTUAL FUND IN AMERICA with similar performance. The only other pick that Alstry has analyzed on CAPS is SPF and that is down about 97% since Alstry started covering it.
You want an investment blog that gives you facts which cuts through the noise, read this blog....you want to be a positive wimp, get the hell out of here and go someplace else.
I made a promise to TMF JAKE to never single out an individual CAPs member in a negative fashion ever again. Alstry always keeps his promises. But you collective wimps, and you know who you are, you are an embarrassement to yourselves and grow up. It is getting tough out there and about to get a lot tougher.
Our country faces serious issues and we need leaders with strength and courage to stand up to the wimps and moochers ala Atlas Shrugged. We need people to think and be willing to have the courage of their convictions and not succomb to the popular perspective just because it is easy.
Alstrynomics is about self reliance, self respect, and winning. This blog has provided exactly that perspective for those that read it.
You were warned by Alstry on what to do.....whether you did it or not I could careless, you are free to make whatever choice you want and Alstry believes in freedom.....but don't cry about your decision and please don't spread your carelessness and cause others harm.
At this point, I hear a lot of noise out there.......be careful of the sirens song.....if you choose to stay on the field.......Alstry will be there.....points and rating, and only points and rating will determine the winners from the losers.
Do you want to be a WINNER OR A LOSER????
