FLASH: Profits from the sale of “The Fly’s” book will be put towards the Orbital Space Cannon (OSC) project, designed for offensive purposes only.
I’d like nothing more than to discuss my intellectual superiority over you, the juxtaposition of an untrained animal against the highly cultured and meaningful intellectual of “The Fly.” Sadly, I cannot do that on this very day.
I’ve been miserably dispatched in several stocks today, amidst the red cannon fire of a roaring bull market.
I was fleeeced for more than 6% in HIIQ today, thanks to President Trump and his weak strategy to kill Obamacare. I was up more than 10% on this trade yesterday and have given it all back, and more, since yesterday. My paper losses are grievous and well deserved.
In my quest to finance cigarettes of a ‘modified risk’ varietal, I’ve had my face seared by two dozen real ones. And here I am now, fanciful and wise, yet smoked out in XXII hoping for a lesser form of cancer to save me from what looks like another bad trade.
All of my gains in YELP have been washed away and now I’m slightly down. This is one of the 4 horsemen of certain death, a member of an infamous set of stocks that cracked me asunder in the winter of 2014 — sending me to an early shower and nearly to my grave.
Almost all of my gains in EDIT are now gone, after running up strong from my initial purchase. In all of my infinite wisdom, I let one in the hand escape me because I was much more interested in two in the bush.
My other stocks are up and my quant investments continue to provide me with a steady source of cash flow and performance. But before I am able to stand here, thundering over you because of my prowess, I first must establish the arc — demonstrating that I too am fallible and could, in fact, lose GOBS of money in an otherwise aesthetically pleasing market.Comments »
