Drinking the Kool-Aid

You may be surprised but I would like you to know that I actually have a conscience, morals even.
If you have been alive the past few days(no offence to the life impaired) you have been hearing about a shooting of a young man in Florida by another man. This occurrence has been bigger in my opinion than the Oscars, the Emmys, and the Superbowl. Don’t hold me to that proclamation until I produce some screenshots from Google Trends.
Since the republican political campaigns have began a lot of extra fear mongering has been swirling around the collective American conscience. Expectedly gun sales have multiplied their shares exponentially. If I was a gambling man, and I am I would have taken…maybe 80% of my life savings and bought gun related shares. I would have made pay-dirt. Unfortunately for me, I have this little ringing in my ear, I hears its called conscience. I don’t think dead people are sexy no matter what Ozzie or Marylyn say. Can’t seen to stop the ringing in my ear.
Anyways let me get back to my portfolio of advertising, financials and home builders(Chinese). Last week the whole thing fell apart. I lost approximately 7% of my portfolio’s value during the course of last week. Thanks to my Chinese home builder stocks, this week that was cut down to approximately 5%. It is said freedom requires constant vigilance but I say profit requires constant portfolio surveillance. There was a 4 hour window today where one of my stock IOT rose by about 20 cents, then fell about 30. Fortunately, I cashed out within that window on both Chinese homebuilder stocks. My domestic advertising company stocks didn’t do so well so I will hold until the Spring shopping season begins, so probably within the next 2 weeks. Advertising is a constant in business, matter of fact it is the driving force behind the internet aside from pornography. I am down 5% but I have confidence advertising will follow its sinosodial/seasonal behavior.
Now for some dangerous indulgence, I still want to acquire Fuel Cell Energy and Truvia stocks. I’m into technology but most conventional tech stocks. I explained the two companies in my last post. Trust me its tre-cool.
Before I go. I saw an article on Bloomberg today stating that construction shrunk. This is a perfect opportunity to buy construction/home improvement stock. The summer will be here and the government has just allowed the banks to rent all those foreclosed properties. Before you can rent a property it must satisfy certain safety conditions….. you see where I’m going here.
Still make sure to do your research. All the stocks I acquired last week were at the lowest of what I hope to be a seasonal inflection point. All less than $2, with the best performing being closes to $1.
That’s it for now.
