Why "Dollar Danks" is the Best CEO in America
Danks and my Chinese restaurant guy would make great business partners.

What do you think of NTES ? Seems pretty undervalued for a Chinese stock no ? Compared to saySINA SOHU etc
SNDA NCTY also look pretty undervalued. I sense a huge China run coming in the next few weeks and these might be your winning lotto tickets. Or maybe I've had to much JW Blue Label for the night....
One of these days people may wake up to the fact that Mormons from Utah, don't handle business well.
Utah is the Con-Artist capital of the US, with state endorsed ponzi schemes(USNA)(NuSkin), Falling apart, P.O.S. IT companies(NOVL,SCOX), Just licking up state Subsities till they go out of buisness.(oh and the Orem, city, Tax kickbacks)
With the Business model for the state; "The Mormon Church" and it's Tithing paying Zelot Customers, and Hand Job business deals for other people (in the Faith). The business model just doesn't seem to translate into the Real World. Any Utah Company... Especially from Orem(Which is the Asscrack Between Salt Lake City, and Provo.), Should be looked on with extreme suspicion.
I've just never seen a decent company come out of there(or from Utah for the most part), and as I spent 3 minutes looking them, and I see a ton of accusations that they are a "Fraud", and a Con. Tons of Legal problems.
I'd believe it and get the fuck out.
Orem has 1 bar, on the outside of the city limits. It's a suburb of Provo... There are 2 main drags, one with a Grocery store and a big box or 2, and another with a Dairy Queen, some plant stores, and a western clothing outlet. It's a 30 minute drive to a decent movie theater.
I could drive there and show you that it's probably an office with 4 guys, one who does the computers stuff, a CEO, a CFO, and a lawyer to keep them out of trouble.
There could be some upside, before the musical chairs on this one Happens.
What's creepy, is I don't even like your blog enough to warn you off of it.
I'm not even a Bear on this one... But I'm thinking about it.
Did you even read the customer testimonial......
When this is your big win.... they don't even have a registered domain.
Good luck with this champ....
you should look into a VC buy-in on Tootsies Kidorable Rain Gear... I bet that is a better investment.
and I think with about 3 grand you could buy half the company. Oh and with that 3 grand insist they get a registered domain.
WTF do I care... Double-Down!!!!
You understand that it's a company that does seminars to sell people retail websites. It's a web publishing company. Startup cost $50K....
maybe they will revolutionize the website business.... How Web 1.0.
It's probably not a Con. I would think the 2 gay guys on the web site would have tipped you off.
Thus far, I'm up 30% from cost.
In other words, fuck off.
the fly is trading the stock
in the short term, that's two different things
The what? The what? The Glengary leads. The leads. The Glengary leads...
(Mamet humor, it's a bottomless font of laffs)
I'm going to follow your lead and do tequila shots today whilst the market goes through its gyrations.
You were right about the early morning sell off. You're probably right about "tequila-enhanced trading" as well.
today will suck .. tomorrow some more selling with no follow thru
monday will rip for the bulls .. major rip .. i think the boyz on fast money are right about foreign money takng advantage of toilet paper dollar & there could be a monday merger frenzy coming from offshore for us companies
I may wade in for a scalp trade here.
Gapping, I'm watching INAP. Although I've been beaten by earnings misses and am apprehensive.
Granted, if it's something ridiculous, the stock'll get hit more, but RGLD isn't down much more than any other PM miner right now.
So in short, yes, great time to grab some. Scale in at least.
I just got more SA, I am becoming like BA on the greasy spoon joints.
Was he one of your clients Broker ?
Many mining companies have some potentially large earnings devouring liabilities looming for environmental issues, mine closures, labor disputes and reclamation costs, etc.
The world is turning "green" and those companies that are eco-and employee friendly will be the long-term winners.
For example, RTN is probably the greenest mining company. Whereas, BHP and FCX only care about the bottom line. This may be good in the short term, but will catch up to them over time.
Because it sometimes seems like a roll of the dice, I have been playing the mining game via GDX to spread the risk.
A purist approach is to buy GLD and SLV and not worry about getting "shafted" by the miners.
Just a thought.
Did u add some SLV today ? That dip below $140 was a great buying opp. I think Silver breaks out to 18-20 within 12 months.
But, it's nice to see back to back 8 point losses in one of my positions.
It let's me know the stock God's are thinking about me.
