You know what I find amazing?
I cannot believe Corning and Asahi Glass can’t profit from the boom in smartphones and tablets. Those fucking imbeciles are too busy fixing on a price war than fleecing the drug dealers at Apple and Samsung. Shares of GLW are bouncing this morning; but this stock has been such a dog. It’s one of those head-scratchers that just seems to suck, continuously, without pause.
Shares of DECK are getting lit the fuck up. In general, analysts suck balls. But Sam Poser from Sterne Agee has nailed DECK the whole way, on the long and short side. He’s saying pricing for Uggs is over and to expect deep margin compression. His target is $38. I’d stay away from DECK until he’s remotely optimistic.
Early going I am down 0.25%, with NAK being my biggest winner.
On a personal level, I’ve been dealing with general contractors performing magical acts of disappearance, once money hits their accounts. Like lawyers, contractors are a reprehensible group of people. They are a stupid class of worker, who takes pride in doing poor work and flaking out on their customers. Right away, I am sure some of you construction fuckers out there will say “we’re not all the same.” I’ve employed dozens of contractors in my time, and without equivocation, they all suck.
Shares of GRPN and ZNGA are rising. GRPN has some lunatic device idea. To be honest, as opposed to outright lying to you, both GRPN and ZNGA are cheap stocks.
Lastly, I like what OSTK is doing these days. I’ve been buying stuff from the site and find them to be better than AMZN in numerous product categories. It will not surprise me to see the shares continue to rise.

Lawyers & contractors are COCKSUCKERS. period.
Mr. TheBenbernanke, please just drop some more cocaine bricks on the market please to get your buddy elected and me stinkin rich. Thank you.
I agree with you one the contractors Fly, and had many a bad experience until our last home purchase where I hooked up wit a good crew. The difference was, I was the contractor and subbed (sic) out all the work, with one crew doing everything except hard wood and tile. I bought all the materials on my card so there was no padding going on, and I paid only once milestones were achieved. We had broken the whole reno down into multiple projects with time lines. Worked out well for once. Good luck and keep those buggers on a short leash!
As a former practicing Barrister (and still a current member of the Bar) I would disagree.
Only 95% suck.
The other 5% quit and are doing something to enrich their lives (like day trading stocks).
Okay, fair enough TC., I’ll give you the 5%. However the media are 99% Cocksuckers – esp The NY Times, BBC and CNN…
There really is no more media in this country.
It’s all advocacy “journalism” (and I use this term very loosely).
Crimes much worse than Watergate have happened over the years but nothing except *crickets*.
Our lawyer for the closing has been great guy.
Our builder has been typical Italian shyster. Probably Sicilian.
As a point of trivia, we use abstracts and no lawyers out here “in the west” for record title transfer er conveyance.
as a long time glw bag holder I agree. still waiting to see some of that value unlocked.
Hey Le Fly is there a way to advertise The V.Kingdom blog?
100% cash just sold everything account up 73% this year. ready to reload
Who gives a fuck about your $100 account going up to $173.
Which call option did you buy?
Why don’t you take your $17,300 and BUY a year subscription to The V.Kingdom??
LOL, love your posts
Throw in some free weight lifting consults and I am sure Fly will bite.
Of course you do…Stop overto the V.Kingdom I have something for you…developing
Will buy when we get back to the bottom of the channel
Having dealt with renovation contractors for much of the last 4 years – next time put a clause in the contract that if they do not finish the job by X date, you will deduct $Y per day of overrun.
Anyone give it a thought that Iran would attack Israel first? I was just thinking…..
Listening to Savage much?
I finally found some of this ‘winship’ Fly speaks of. Somehow, I thought it would be a bit more….top hat.

We built on a room for my mother who was dying and I wanted her to be with us not in a hospital. The contractor knew that. I made the mistake of paying him everything to fast and he left my mother with a room half done he took us for 30Kn and could give a shit about a 79 year old women on her death bed
Id kill the fucker!!!!!!!!
Phony hypocrites. They hate lawyers until they get into an accident, etc., then they are the first ones to get an attorney and sue.
It’s true. I will likely use a lawyer to sue the contractor. How’s that for irony?
They have been that bad?!? Hard to believe considering I’d expect a man of your cloth to hire the best of the best.
Actually, they haven’t really begun work yet. I am only anticipating a lawsuit, being that they are despicable creatures from the crawl space.
“Despicable creatures from the crawl space.”
LOL! love that line!
We hired the top guy on Angies List and he really was awesome. Right on budget, great quality.
Landscaping contractors really grind my gears. I spent 2 hours trying to repair the shitty tree planting they did. They literally dug a small hole and dumped the root ball in there burlap and all. But they did a great creating a tree mulch volcano. Fuckers…And all the neighbors got all horny and added more black mulch. Fuckers will see in 3 years when their trees are dead.
QCOR here?? anyone?? oppenheimer says its all old news..misinterpreted info
The correct way to plant a healthy tree for those who care by Roger Cook @ThisOldHouse. http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/video/0,,20057716,00.html
dig a fucking hole and plant it.
It’s really not that hard.
Your thoughts mirror that of their ESL migrant workers. But I can not blame the lowly Mexican mules. I blame the management/owners for not knowing better.
Ever time i took a look at $GLW they were always crying about TV sales.
