Time to Gloat - NVDA

So where are we on September 23, 2017 I said of I were going to purchase a stock I would buy NVDA Nvidia.  At that time I listened the price for the close of the day which was $179.00 a share.  On October 27, 2017 NVDA closed at $201.86!   Yes, let me say that again, $201.86 so for every share you purchased you made a profit of $22.86 a share.  So again using what I taught you in a previous article you now understand the value of purchasing more shares.


1 Share = $22.86 - $6.95 commission (buy) - $6.95 commission (sell) = $8.96 profit
10 Shares = $228.60 - $6.95 commission (buy) - $6.95 commission (sell) = $214.70 profit
100 Shares = $2286.00 - $6.95 commission (buy) - $6.95 commission (sell) = $2,272.10 profit
1,000 Shares = $22,860.00 - $6.95 commission (buy) - $6.95 commission (sell) = $22,846.10 profit

How this would also be figured and reported on buy company and news organizations is that in just over 1 month the stock rose by 12.7% a very nice return on a short term investment!

So here is another way when they are reporting they make you think the gains and losses of the market are huge, or the market fall (or crash) is the end of the world when it is not. We are going to take two stocks value at both $100 a share. The market closes:

Stock A:  $100 closes at $150 = 50% gain
Stock B   $100 closes at $50 = 50% loss

Stock A $150.00 closes at $175.00 = 16% gain
Stock B $ 50.00 closes at $75.00 = 50% gain

News reporters will go wild "Oh my Stock B went up by 50% in on day!" You think they must be right the greatest stock in the world BUY! BUY! BUY!  the problem is you didn't see news the day before when they championed Stock A and said to sell Stock B,  So what should I buy? possibly both this is where other factors come in if you bought Stock A at $100 great, if you bought Stock B at $50 even better.

However in future articles I will talk about the factors that would influence why you might buy either Stock A or Stock B or both.  But for now I am getting ready to launch another pick, but I wouldn't sell NVDA just yet.

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!


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…
