Hindsight is 20/20 so Hey Great Behind?


     This is a year to look behind us.  Buns intended; oops I mean pun, pun intended..  Our portfolio is performing tremendously as a matter of fact I am just waiting for the year to close and we are all going to gloat over how much money we made verses taking advice from the average investment counselor.
     I created this blog to teach the basics of Wall Street, the fact that the investments I chose to look at also made a profit is just a bonus.  But you can learn to find these investments on your own without spending a lot of time if you are not interested in Wall Street.  Remember this is also about your 401K at your workplace if that is the only Wall Street investing you ever do that's ok too!
     Let's look back on this year.  I became homeless, yes you heard me right homeless, living on the streets of Los Angeles.  Best thing that ever happened to me in my life!  You are going to say I'm crazy....


WILLIAM YOU ARE CRAZY! HOMELESS AND YOU EXPECT ALL OF US 30,000+ READERS TO LISTEN TO A WORD YOU SAY?

     Wait don't interrupt in the middle of my article Joe reader, let me finish my point.  Ok now I am sidetracked but go back if you are new to the sight start with the first articles where I explain myself and the basics of investing, in 2020 we are going to be doing more of that now that I have more time to write.  The most powerful articles are the "Trumpty Dumpty Poem" because it has been plagiarized everywhere in different versions.  The "Proof is in the Pudding Article" showing the portfolio performing at 111% and the article special to me, how I became homeless.  This being homeless is evolving for me to look at a career in non-profit service to the homeless but I will still continue this blog.  Wall Street isn't as complicated as you think but it does effect your everyday life.
      So as we approach our second year end we are going to take out the profit of our initial investment and in a sense take our money back.  Going forward we will grow the mock portfolio with only funds we earned from Wall Street in the last 2 years!
     As we look back on this decade it has been truly a prosperous one for investing and with the skills you will learn from this blog will last you a lifetime.  Eventually the market will turn from this Bull market (going up) to the Bear market (going down) when we enter the Bear Market our tactics for making a profit will severally shift.

I thank you all for allowing me to take you on this journey.

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…
