Well were talkin' bout the Midnight Rambler



February 06, 2011 – Comments (14) | RELATED TICKERS: AIG , GS

Hi Everybody,

This post is just some random observations. So if your looking for some great insight into Mr. Markets wild gyrations.

Move along-

Nothing to see here.

First- why no nominations for the Feste-

2010 Feste Award Nominations Open!

(bummer link did'nt work I'll put it in the comments section)

I'll try putting up a nomination, I just know that it's going to take me forever. I'm not as computer savy as most of you folks.

Second- Whats to stop me from setting up a shell company of myself. Ticker- GHOST produce legitimate earnings that can be documented. But the assets could be moved from the shell company (GHOST) to the legitimate entity (myself) at any time?

Third- Has TMF ever considered a sarcasm font. I always enjoy joking around wth fellow Fools, but often the intent is lost over the internet. (pretty sure I've set the record for abuse of the smiley face emodicom :)

Forth- Legalize it! I put down the bong a looong time ago but I can't understand the absurdity of waging a war on a natural substance, costing taxpayers billions.

Were just empowering the criminals, when it could be a desparatly needed revenue for states.

Fifth- Watching Resovoir Dogs on IFC they did'nt cut it but theres commercials  (hope this is'nt a trend for cable stations)

Sixth- What if six turned out to be nine?

Seventh- Is it just me or is Goldman sachs the root of all evil.

Eitgth- With AIG hopping along as their hand toady.

Ninth- What if six turned out to be nine? I don't mind

Tenth- Go Steelers.

I don't know John, I have a funny feeling Mr Rogers will go back to his neighborhood a happy guy. I'm back in BZ for a while. Speared a couple lionfish yesterday. Ck your taz addy- I'll send you some pix later. It's getting hot- time to go "cool off" in the 80ish sea. Looks like Chi Town is the wrong place to be right now. Best

Hey Mark,

If Mr Rogers wins I'll be taking a lot of crap from my Packer freinds, so Go Steelers.

Actually the blizzarrd was kind of fun. I kept on quoting LT. Dan from Forrest Gump.


Almost game time. Got my #'s and ready to roll.

Oh and if your ever near the Comstock area shoot me a line, I would love to know the skinny on what's really happening over there.

I can hear Mr Rodgers singing "It's a love a ly day in the nieghborhood" (cradling the Lombardi Trophy) "won't you be mine, won't you be mine hmm hmm hmmm."

Disclosure: Not a GB fan but long Mr Rodgers. What a job he's done filling some big shoes. Just had a funny feeling on the pick.

Bears, Lions, Eagles, Steelers, Talent, Orginization.

Yeah I saw the link on my pitch, I put another link up.

Are you in the CBOE in RL, if so I guess we could start up a board to track the news of the company. And I'm curious as to what you decided on V?

No position in either, but both are on my radar thanks to you.

I don't know if you're familiar with how I invest....

I keep my transactions to a quarterly timeframe. I plunk what cash I can every month into my brokerage account. When I've finished collecting my dividends for the quarter I decide what I'm gonna buy new or add to.

For this period I added to my Nucor Corp NYSE;NUE position.

Have you heard of the Money Show in Orlando FL?

Well the Motley Fool is there and thursday evening I had the chance to visit with Tom Gardner and some other Fools at their Meet-n-Greet.  I live only 2 hours away so I took the opportunity to go and make it back for work the next day.

While others were imbibing in adult beverages I declined since I was driving and not staying overnight at the convention center hotel. Can you believe they had a StarBucks vending machine?!  I thought that was very cool. I could see those in more places than hotels. It ground and brewed the cup right there. And of course took my money. 

Anyway there must have been about 30 to 40 people there for the Meet-n-Greet. A wide gamut of personalities and investing experience there. When Tom Gardner got there a group gathered around him, hanging on his every word.

I'm going back today (saturday) for one of the Motley Fool's presentations and browse the rest of the Money Show. The Fool has a booth where they'll sell you a Foolish Jester Cap! I'm gonna get one.  :-)

Sounds good man,

I'll have to check if the Fool  has plans to make it to Chi-town.

I like the fact that you do your investments quarterly, puts a certain discipline to it something I desparately need. I've been reflecting on 2010 and it really was'nt that great a year for me. I'm a contrarion so I was haveing trouble stock picking when things did'nt look like outrageous bargins.

My conclusion was to go back to keeping it simple. I think that should work better for me in 2011.

Rock on!
