Sometimes, when you take a superficial look at things, you really don’t see the beauty.
I have to admit that while I’m not a real glossy person in life and while I’ve never been one to look for thrills or seek to stand out, I do like stocks that have character.
In a perverse way, I think that I may even like stocks that treat me poorly.
There is probably a name for that sort of thing and there is probably a diagnosis that goes along with the propensity to get some joy out of misfortune.
In case you don’t know the term, it is Schadenfreude.
This week, though, it was a different Germanic word that came to mind, as I marked the end of an almost 2 year association with the shares of Weyerhaeuser.Click here for reuse options!
A man has been arrested by German police investigating the bomb attack on a bus carrying the Borussia Dortmund football team. Investigators say the 28-year-old man of dual German and Russian nationality was attempting to make money on the stock exchange by causing the club’s shares to fall.

Published in British medical journal The Lancet, the report shows that the wealthiest Americans outlive the poorest by about 10 to 15 years.

I am definitely not a gold bug.
I definitely do hate bugs, though and I do like gold.
With the latter, only in moderation, but I’m liking gold more and more.
For each of my son’s college graduations they received some one ounce gold coins, representing the first time I had ever purchased gold in any form, other than jewelry.
Those turned out to have been good investments and some of those coins have already been cashed in and turned into other good investments.Click here for reuse options!
As I’ve gotten older, I realize that there are lots of things that I forget and have forgotten.
For example, I don’t really remember if I used to enjoy looking at photos like this, or not.
If I did, I’m not certain that I remember why I liked it.
Looking at it, though, I do recall a few years ago when LuLuLemon had a little bit of a debacle with its sheer athletic yoga pants and that issue related to quality control took shares lower after an almost fairy tale kind of rise up until that point.
Again, looking at the picture, I don’t really recall if it demonstrates what was bad about the quality or what was good about the quality.
What I do, remember, however, is that as all of this was unfolding, the founder of LuLuLemon and its Chairman, at the time, made the unfortunate mistake of saying that not all people were meant to be wearing his company’s clothing.Click here for reuse options!
Adults in eight states and Washington D.C., can legally consume marijuana, and that could soon change to adults in all 50 states. Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., recently introduced a bill that would make marijuana federally legal and allow the plant to be regulated as alcohol is in the U.S. Under the new bill, called the Regulate…
Most of us nod off as our sleeping brain uses this time to make sense of our day-to-day experiences. We continue to fall deeper and deeper into a slumber as our dream world unfolds, putting us face-to-face with our unconscious fears and desires. This could manifest into a cycle of bad dreams from seeing zombies to…
