Do You Really want to Invest in Iran Oil Market?

Iran is considering opening an exchange for oil and energy futures and it has some at the NYMEX scared. Why? Who in the world is crazy enough to put millions of dollars in an exchange in Iran? Last time I checked most of the world's contracts are traded by Americans and Europeans and Iran doesn't like us too much. Secondly who is going to stop them from moving the markets with their own oil? ...

A question that children will ask someday when they are gone or called "financial advisors"Here's a joke to go with it:Two women were walking through the woods when a frog called out to them and said: "Help me, ladies!

Invest in Paris Hilton? PARL Parlux Fragrances

At first I thought there is no way I am going to invest in a perfume company. To make it worse I am not going to invest in a company whose best selling products are that of Paris Hilton. Parlux Fragrances (PARL) is more than just Paris. They are using the great sales of Paris' products to make sure once her fad goes away they are part of the next fad. Its too bad I let my judge a book by its ...

Neteller a Takeover Target?

This is a rumor made up by me. If you've ever gambled you probably used Neteller to get the money to your account. Neteller is traded on the FTSE and to me would be a great acquistition target for somebody. The reason it hasn't been is because of it reliance on gaming. Eventually a company is going to chance and buy this company. I can't see it being a US company in the near future with the g ...

If You Like A Stock Just Buy It

I'm getting sick and tired of hearing investors saying they are waiting for a stock to come down before they buy it. Yes a stock could drop and give you a buying point but what if it keeps going up and you missed the boat. Are you going to miss out on a stock you really liked over a few dollars. Either you like the stock or not. If you are a daytrader forget all this but if you are a buy and hold. ...

Do You Really Think Opec is Going to Cut Production?

This was on the newswire today. With oil as high as it is do you really think OPEC is going to cut production? If anything, they are secretly selling more oil than is recorded. They, like all the oil companies, wanted to make sure the world knows that they do not set the prices and the prices are geopolitical in nature and not related to their production. Then why do we care?

Cramer is Getting to The Point Hes Unwatchable

He has become the king of Flip Flop. One day he likes a stock and without anything changing in the company whatsoever he turns against them. I don't mind if he's long or short as long as he stay with his feelings for a few weeks. The only things that should change his mind is news, valuation, or financials. He is getting to be like Stern . They both feel they need to take it to the more extreme or ...

Update to Going to Try to Run 28 miles Today

Didn't quite make the whole run. I had to stop at 21. I was tired it started to rain and I said forget it. I had nothing to prove because it was 7 four mile trails and the goal was to see how many you can do.

Buying Too Far Out of The Money Option Will Make You Go Broke

Everyone wants to hit it big in options. They hear stories like mine where someone took 2K and made it into 150K in a few years and want to get there in a few weeks. This is a recipe for disaster. Options can be very lucrative but you need to stay in the money, at the money, or near the money. When in the money or near the option prices move very closely to the actual stock and therefore if the st ...

A Watch that Tells Approximate Time

Remember what I was saying about watches being worthless. Here's a watch I like. It tells you what time just in a little more laid back way. Story from Gizmodo What time is it? "Two hairs past a freckle, Eastern Elbow Time," says the Talus AboutTime, the watch that doesn't really care what time it is. Well, it's a little more exact than that. It notifies you of the time of day with breezy, ins ...

Get Prepared for the Gillette Fusion BS

You are about to be bombarded with the new Gillette Fusion ads on everything you watch. The Superbowl, Letterman, Lost, and tens of other shows. I think it will say something like this. "The future is here, now with 1230 blades for the closest shave" The biggest scam in the marketplace are blades. I already wrote a story on why I think this, but it's obvious. Gillette was the reason Procter and Ga ...
