Wow!!! Only 1 day and I'm up $52 in my Fantasy Stock Portfolio! Meanwhile, I exercised my prerogative as the creator of the fantasy and decided to add $10,000 fantasy cash to my account so that I could buy stuff that comes up along the way.
Amy, my BFF from college if you are a newcomer, upon returning from a visit to her daughter at college in Boulder, CO, suggested investing in ANY PIZZA PLACE WITHIN 5 MILES OF A COLLEGE CAMPUS! My family has really enjoyed Domino's since they changed their recipe and have great specials, so I have put Domino's on my "watch list" to potentially buy.
Kip responded on my FB page with one letter, C. I thought, "Citigroup? Is he serious? Financial institutions in this market?" But, I looked at it and could see the "wisdom" of his recommendation, so it, too, is on my watch list.
Here is the status of the Fantasy Stock Portfolio. It's set up on the Google Gadget, Portfolio Monitor by GFarry, which I have been using for a while now and just love. If you have Google as your home page, go ahead and try it. You can even put my Fantasy Stock Portfolio information on it and watch with me. Or watch and if you see something crazy, let me know in case I'm doing something important like having coffee with Kim or having a facial, and I miss it!
I think we're going to see some spikes in the market today because the headline on the Business page in the Raleigh News & Observer is "Earnings Picture is Rosy." Now, shhh...let's keep this to ourselves, because I kind of feel like this is insider information since I'm one of the few, the proud, the last of the newspaper readers.
OMG...do you think it's going to eventually become politically incorrect to read the actual newspaper? Like, come on, you tree-destroying, self-absorbed, throwback...read it online! Mmmm...just doesn't feel right with my coffee and Raisin Bran.
