Happy Anniversay iBankCoin (UPDATE: 12631 has launched)

Tomorrow marks iBankCoin’s 3rd year anniversary. It should come to no surprise, to any of you, that my largest position exploded to the upside, just one day prior to this joyous event. All of these things happen for a reason, as I am blessed by the stock Gods. I am built to win and I do so repeatedly. However, I am not exempting myself from future losses. In an oddball way, real life losses hit “The Fly” all the time, whether it comes in the form of idiotic neighbor seeking revenge or by egregiously poor service from my local barber. At the end of the day, the Gods bless me with stock market splendour [sic]. To this day, Mrs. Fly is puzzled by the whole ordeal. She really has no explanation as to why or how I do what I do, repeatedly, over the years. We’ve been from basement broke to penthouse rich, back to “hey, you might lose it all again” to God status, all in a decade. Yet here I am bowling on you fucking misfits.

I am not posting this to remind you how awesome Senor Tropicana is through meaningless words, relayed in a grammatical way that is almost morse code for the senses. No, instead, I am here to say Happy Anniversary to iBankCoin, staff and readers alike.

On this joyous day, I am happy to launch 12631 for Ragin’ Cajun and chessNwine, two solid/honorable and loyal people that I am happy to be in business with. At the end of the day, like all things in life, business is about relationships—the ebb and flow between people. I know RC from the old days on Flyonwallstreet.blogspot.com. Through the years, he and Jeremy (aka Vincenzo the IT guy) has helped me every step of the way to build iBC to where it is today. More importantly, he has some sort of space alien magician like gift for picking stocks, often times better than me.

When I was younger, I’d go for the quick kills, like RC. But, to be honest, my comfort zone is for more longer term oriented ideas, built around a general thesis. However, Ragin Cajun’ is simply talented, the best you will find, for identifying imminent breakouts. Couple that with Chess’s innate ability to pick stocks and excellent habits for risk management, I am confident they will provide a top notch service for all subscribers, for many years to come.

For those of you who are interested in signing up to 12631 (remember, you must be a PPT sub first) stay tuned for I might launch it tonight.

Here is an old video that Spyder Crusher aka Danny made, back in the old days, introducing iBankCoin.

Enjoy.

UPDATE
12631 is now available to PPT subscribers. (Note: You must already be logged into The PPT before you can register for 12631. Also, since your 12631 acct. is separate from your PPT account, you’ll want to go ahead and re-register.)

    Happy Anniversery Neighbor Fly. It has been fun, but, who is the “idiotic neighbor seeking revenge?”
    I will send Steve,Jr. out tonight to TP the neighbor’s house and will launch stale matzoh balls from the roof through their windows.

    Kudo’s and a couple Huzzah’s!! for Fly and the crew on assembling a truly impressive site. I wish you guys many more anniversaries to come. May IBC last forever…………….or at least as long as we have a valid stock market and functioning economy rather than a Northern version of a banana republic.

    On that note………..

    This is partially a c&p from an e-mail but it really does make one scratch his/her head. How is it that people with no experience whatsoever in the real business world are vested with the task of over seeing the largest economy in the world? The following numbers are rather telling when considering the type of leadership we may expect would be forthcoming at the federal level.

    The numbers represent the percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in
    the private business sector prior to their appointment to the
    cabinet. .

    T. Roosevelt…….. 38%
    Taft…………………40%
    Wilson …………….52%
    Harding………………49%
    Coolidge………….. 48%
    Hoover ……………. 42%
    F. Roosevelt……… 50%
    Truman………………50%
    Eisenhower……….. 57%
    Kennedy………….. 30%
    Johnson……………..47%
    Nixon………………. 53%
    Ford………………… 42%
    Carter……………… 32%
    Reagan……………….56%
    GH Bush…………….. 51%
    Clinton …………….. 39%
    GW Bush……………. 55%

    And the winner of the Chicken Dinner is:

    Obama……………. 8% !!!

    I’m just sayin’………………………..

    My gift to you, is to unveil the Final mystery of puma punku

    I’ve found Tim Seymour’s true identity. He is one of the descendants of the first victim of “horatio clawhammer”

    All kidding aside, someone examine these photos–and try to convince me Tim Seymour is human. Seriously.

    I joined the PPT today and will be doing 12631. As an 8 yr vet, what better way to spend the evening then with a scotch aged 16 years and the PPT.

    I followed Fly into FTK last week after watching the saga for so long, at $1.80 last week. Not sure why, I just think I heard a voice telling me to do it. Thank you god. Nice way to start the PPT.

    Happy Birthday IBC! I am 100 percenter happy about this day. Will be signing up for 12631 as soon as the link is up.

    In preparation for 12631, Tonight’s sandwich:

    Lightly toasted 12 grain bread from the La Jolla bakery
    Thick slices of chicken breast, dipped in barbecue sauce piled about an inch high
    Melted cheese
    Avocado
    Mayo
    Mustard
    Bread and Butter Pickles
    Dash of cayenne pepper

    To add a layer of pomegranate / raspberry jam or not? Wifey thought it might work well, but I’m not so sure. Any other suggestions?

    Are these weak openings indicating that the Bearded Clam is losing his market touch? Today’s open would give back the entire rally since QE2 announcement – and with no QE3 on the horizon.

    QE2 not working? Give it time. If it doesn’t work, then we need QE3! (or so the thinking will go). Full steam ahead. Bernanke is nimble enough to steer this ship through the icebergs, no?
