Journal Journal: Smoke Filled Back Rooms

We live in interesting times [lifted from someone important, no doubt].

my frustrations have been, for the most part, because of "fools" who are trying to run businesses and the competition keep running over them. So back to the "good ole" days when decisions were made in smoke filled back rooms, if you were in favour, or had enough money, you could buy the favour, you got what you said, with no questions, is what they want. But times have changed, Time for us old farts to move aside and let the younger generation show us how its done. Hey teens, get out there and save the world while you still know it all. But should I do everything I can to stop them? That's not the way I want it, stop doing that. Or would a nudge in this direction or that help? Depends on how much money I want, or if you are taking that money away from me.

Best yet, time to become a teacher again/still.

It always makes me wonder why people think that the stock markets are only for making money?
A Class action lawsuit states that the company issued a "series of materially false and misleading financial statements" that inflated the stock price. Then the company said "it would delay filing its annual report and further disclosed that it may have to restate results for a second time in six months."
Second time in six months, wonder what that means??
Geesh, you don't do your homework people? Or are you watching too much TV and buying what the anal-ist tell you to buy? (by the time you hear it on TV, its too late folks)
The major complaint is the price went from 6.88 to 5.24 after the anouncement. I bought in at 7.75 and I'm not complaining, I bought it while it was going down. I hope the price drops more so I can pick it up on the cheap. As I did with Amazon when a similar lawsuit was filed, rode that one up to $50.
Or am I just crazy?
