BABA - Alibaba - Record Singles Day

BABA - Alibaba is my next choice if I had any money right now I would buy this stock.  I admit I have owned it in the past since its initial IPO @ $68.00 a share.  However I sold due to financial reasons in March of 2017.

Singles Day in China is the same as our Black Friday, it is named after the date 11/11 all those ones look like a lot of lonely single people so they created a day to shop online and every single person buy a gift for themselves.  Last year Singles Day sold 18 billion in goods, that is more than Black Friday and Cyber Monday in United States combined!  This year Singles Day at last count had brought in $25 billion.  That is not chump change for Alibaba as it is the Amazon of China and the largest on-line retailer  partially owned by the richest man in the world Jack Ma.  I have always been interested in Alibaba (BABA) since it's public offering I got in on the first day at $93 up from the $68 asking price it went as high as $121 then fell all the way back to $58 after pundits and financial investors over the next year did not give it a bright future, due to its debt and lack of sales, selling of counterfeit brands.  But it is back selling at $186.41 as of Friday's close before the singles day news was announced.  I expect Alibaba to do very well over the next week, probably could hit $200 by end of month.  Alibaba has over 500 million users and is an established site in China so I would hold this stock for at least the next 5 years.

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…
