Quantcast
I have 84 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Well, I know there was that famous plane crash that took out three musicians in the late 50ís. Can I get two guesses? Was it Ritchie Valens or Buddy Holly?

    That's an interesting choice but not correct according to my source. Now that you mention it it's almost surprising that something from these two plus The Big Bopper didn't get released and go to the top.

    Just read a little bit more about the guy Wikipedia claims was the first to chart #1 after being killed. He reportedly died in December 1967, his plane crashing in a lake also killing 4 members of his band. One band member survived who reportedly could not swim but clutched a seat cushion til rescued.

    I think it was "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding. I was 17 at the time and remember it well. Just don't ask me what happened yesterday or last week.

    Yup.

    Separately, like Bobbi McGee being written to be sung by a guy and becoming famous sung by a girl, here is Roger Whittaker singing Stranger On the Shore which I never knew had words (think Acker Bilk). It sounds to me that it should be sung by a girl, that it would be the man who goes off to sea but in this version his girl goes to sea.

    Hereís your new trivia question. Fabulous prizes await the person with the correct answer.

    Which US space probe was the first to orbit another planet (i.e. not the moon) and in which year was this accomplished?

    Wild guess. It had to be one of the Pioneers in about 1972 or so, when Star Trek was all the rage. Wait, in one of the episodes didn't the Enterprise almost collide with Pioneer (or almost destroy it) before identifying it as not being an alien enemy? Captain Kirk (William Shatner) became a hero once again, even before Boston Legal.

    Nope, not a Pioneer probe. I donít remember the Enterprise ever almost colliding with a Pioneer probe, but the Klingons did destroy Pioneer 10 as target practice in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. In Star Trek The Motion Picture, a sentient Voyager 6 space probe was the antagonist.

    This is probably too easy for this crowd but who is Alice?
