Random Musings of a Fool.
In no particular order. Not all are intended to be funny, so don't think too hard.....
Most of the CAPS accounts must be inactive. There are 73,865 registered accounts. If you exclude some that are on vacation, and some that only make calls on equities they own and you subtract for the players with YESMEN charms who didn’t give them up, there should have been a lot more players to make a call on LinkedIN than 1,200.
Alstry is even more extreme than a PermaBear, but his icon is the “udderworld” Why would a bear name his website with reference to a cow?? Either he’s trying to “milk” fear for all it’s worth or perhaps he wasn’t weaned at the right time??
RenRen : Proof that saying something twice still doesn’t’ make it right.
When a sector starts getting really high valuations, some (perhaps those who are jealous they missed out), will say that we’re in a bubble. I don’t know if everything is in a bubble, REE’s, Social Media Sites, Apple, Gold, (not me saying it Chris, don’t attack), Housing, etc or not. At least there should be plenty of soap to go around for anyone about to take a bath.
ChimpContest: Proof that rhyming doesn’t help make a good investment (or caps score) and that CIGX can blow smoke in enough investors faces to rise to the top time after time. Now what was it they are trying to cure this time....I forgot....
I recently had FriendFinders Network Inc (FFN) added. It’s down over 50% since it IPO’d six weeks ago on May 18th. I’m not sure if it has more to fall. I downthumbed it out of jealousy. It’s close to stepping on my own idea for what I’m sure will be a winning social media site. Rent-A-Friend (Patent Pending). I am sensitive that some people have trouble making friends, due to various issues, or isolation. I think those of us who use Motley Fool would have no need for the service. (With a few exceptions who created fake friends, dialoged with them and set a new pitch rec record by them high-fiving each other). Overall though, how can some people participate in social media such as Facebook if they have no friends.
With Rent-A-Friend, for a nominal fee they can have a selection of quality friends. The friends will Rec their posts on Fool, link to them on social sites, and send them a birthday card. Deals with Facebook and LinkedIn will really make this a winner.
DragonLZ once said that if Portefeuille was a stock he would buy some. I’d be very interested in a biopharm portfolio ran by Port and zzlangerhans. As long as it didn’t become Shakespeare’s Folly’s.
If the economy gets any worse bears will have to go back to buying the cheap toilet paper whether it sticks to their hinny or not.
Why are bears so gruff, their favorite food is honey….don’t they get enough….or is it the bees???
Speaking of Port. There are 12 Portefeuille profiles. 11 have a score of 99.70 or higher. Portefeuille12 has a score of 31.69. Is he a wayward child, or lacking attention?? Seems to be one in every family, in this case it’s the “youngest”. Gotta watch those younger children!
I recently noticed that I'd gained the coveted "skeptic" charm. I was a little surprised since I classify myself as a perma-bull. But then again, I'm particular about the grass that I graze on. Seems one end of my field is contaminated with overly sweet salad dressing and some farmer sprayed pesticide on the other end. It's getting really hard to find a nice spot of grass nowadays.
TSIF signing off.
The Sky Isn't Falling today...(perhaps tomorrow).
Disclaimer, if I knew anything, would I be posting here? ;)
Signed a PermaBull wondering whether to wake up from his summer nap and look for some uncontaminated grass or if he should go back to sleep for the rest of the summer!
