Sell my Share!

So in the previous article 5 people have a company each has a share of stock in the company but Maral decides she wants to sell.  If this were a publicly traded company she would sell her share on a stock market to someone who wants to buy that share.  Typical places you would find the stock available to sell would be on an exchange or stock exchange; examples would be the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, Chicago Board of Options Exchange and foreign markets like the British F.T.S.E. (Footsie).

Maral takes her $200,000 share and sells to highest bidder, the new buyer decides he will pay $210,000 to Maral to purchase.  The exchage completes the sale through brokers, commissions are paid.  Now each of the previous shareholders, now have a share that is worth $210,000.

How can this be?  The company is only worth $1,000,000.00 but you are now stating it is worth $1,040,000.00 this doesn't make sense?  While the stock now shows a slight inflation, the company is worth $1,040,000 because someone is willing to pay $210,000 to obtain it.  Eventually if we continued to say $225,000 or $250,000 a share eventually someone would say it is no longer worth that and it will not rise any further as a matter of fact it could fall even below the original price Maral offered it at $200,000 that is why you see the stock market go up and down everyday.  The company has bad news or earnings stock goes down, company launching new product, service or expanding production stock goes up in value.

There are a multitude of outside influences, such as competition, overall economy, treaties, price of commodities and other factors affect that price.  I am not here to teach Economics 101 for college credit so you will have to do some research on your own.  I will however mention these influences when I am giving you a stock pick and why I feel it is going to go against what other pundits say, or why I agree with them.

What is the Trumpty Dumpty Poem? Question from Readers Richard & Shannon

Richard & Shannon of Albuquerque, NM I am glad you asked that question.  I can see that the over 1,000 times I have posted this to social media it has seemed to take of and obviously I am able to borrow this graffic from someone who copied my poem.  I have seen variations of it but I can assure you mine is the original it dates dack to around March of 2017.

I did however not coin the phrase Trumpty Dumpty this was done by another Albuquerque resident that called into my friend Radio Talk Show host Norman Goldman (we met through our mutual friend Ed Schultz who just recently passed R.I.P.) you can listen to his show on AM 1350 in Albuquerque from 4-7pm Mountain (for the rest of the country check his website).  I wish I remembered the ladies name.  I first posted the peom on my Facebook page the day after the lady stated it on the show so if anyone claims copyright I can prove them wrong I wrote this enjoy"

Homeless and Living with Covid 19 ~ My Personal Story

So I was diagnosed with Corona Virus on May 25th, 2020 at Martin Luther King Hospital in South Central Los Angeles. I arrived at the emergency room at 8:00am in the morning, after being triaged they suspected myself and two other gentlemen from the sober living recovery home where I was staying did indeed have the virus. So while we waited for the results which would take two hours I was scared my worst nightmare would come true I would have it, be homeless again and tossed out into the street.
     The two hours was an excruciating long time I was petrified, scared and facing the overall fact this may be it I might die. Then I remembered I have been through this before.  The first time I went in for my AIDS test back in 1986 after having been all over Europe and with many a man, I was back in my hometown in Waukesha Wisconsin and was the first ever patient at Waukesha Memorial Hospital to have the AIDS test administered. The girl in the laboratory was my friend from high school…

Liars and Buyer's and Bear's oh My!!!!!!!!! The Dow drops another 1000 points!

VS. 

If you have read my previous articles over the last couple of days I said I would be more worried if the DJIA corrected 2600 points in one day (10%)  well as of today that leaves us around 2,100 points off last week Wednesdays open.  I am still not in a panic and here is why:
Bulls vs. Bears
I'm looking at you right now stop talking to your dog and trying to make his head tilt to the side so you can do the Scooby Doo voice and say "Huh?"
What are they? Why do people on Wall Street keep referring too all these Bull markets, all these Bear Markets?  Why do people on Wall Street go South most of the time, North every so often but never East and West? These are terms that Wall Street users identify certain periods of time.  A "Bull" market is one that is charging upward (like a Bull lifting its horns upwards no end in site) while a "Bear" market means things are on the way down (like a bear striking with its claws downward)  this is also considere…
