You’ll see I’ve lowered the ratings of several longs and I upped the ratings of several shorts. I’m not bearish overall by any stretch of the imagination, as I think we are still headed into an even bigger equity bubble before this is over, but I don’t like the idea of being overly long here […]

Where’s my money?

I had to be at the dentist for a checkup and cleaning at 7:45am yesterday and I couldn’t find my wallet. We were sure we’d seen the wallet on the table by the door, but it was nowhere to be found. I finally thought — I wonder if that new six month old Great Pyrenees […]

Google and parabolic moves

Green Day Google

Green Day. And I’m not just talking about the band whose leader lost his cool in a big concert a couple nights ago thereby helping juice sales of a just-happened-to-be-upcoming new album.
