How high is your IQ? - IQIYI

Image result for question mark

So everybody loves NetFlix right?  The US stock showing record gains?  Well then lets take a look at China's counter part IQIYI (IQ)   From it's initial IPO it is currently up 189% from it's first day of trading March 29, 2018.  It is actually experiencing a bit of a sell off which can be expected from people who are taking profits quickly and due to the overall Chinese market falling into a Bear market (which that Bear may be headed to the US soon).  Main factors are Trump's trade wars and the events yet to play themselves out over the next few months.

Now this stock if you choose to buy today is currently trading at $26.62 based on current futures and that this is a Saturday -.30 down from it's Friday close.  The support for this stock seems to be in the $27-30 dollar range and may actually sit there in that range for the next couple of months.  The reason I would call this a buy now is that I would want to get in on it before it begins to soar again like NIVIDA (NVDA) and Alibaba (BABA) have done in the past. If you want to wait awhile and see if it drops further go ahead but we are adding to our portfolio as of today.

OK why IQIYI and not Netflix?  After all Netflix is in over 150 countries while IQIYI is only in one China.  Well the amount of growth potential with China's population of 1.38 billion people and the newness of the offering and product to the Chinese market.

I also feel if the bear market continues in China and the economy begins to slow it is no different than what people here in the United States do during a recession they stay home and rent movies rather than go out to eat or spend large sums at the theater. 

Financially the companies books look solid and I can't even predict the upward potential of the product they are offering but based on Netflix; it's popularity grew over time and by word of mouth, and now is a major player in where Americans get their entertainment.  There is no reason the same will not be true for IQIYI in China.  Their current valuation is around 23 Billion which is strong, no where near Netflix; but then Netflix has been around for a few years, if IQIYI eventually meets valuation of Netflix then we have a true winner!

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…
