FSX Friday Update

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 17:56

I have a secret.  Remember when I said that my timetable for completion of the second draft of Book Four—thirteen weeks, hence Plan XIII—was very conservative?  I did, in case you don’t.  Well, that wasn’t entirely true.  Was it achievable?  It was and it is.  Was it conservative?  Well, I’ve got to bag two chapters this week and double-up again at some point in the final six weeks, so probably not.  I could do the update this week, of course, and I would if had to.  But since Mario told Katie he was interested in subbing for me, I’m only too happy to let him.  So after a brief recap of the market action overall—Mario didn’t seem interested in addressing that—I’ll turn the a/d section over to him.

The broader averages were basically flat on the week, with 0.1% moves for the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq.  All three managed to notch new five-year highs, though, and the upward bias continues to hold.  The Family Stock Index beat the market handily after trailing the S&P for a few weeks; a 1.2% gain this week lifted the FSX to an all-time intraday high above 14,800 before we settled out at 14,782.  The FSX is up 10% year-to-date with 20 of 25 components in the green and six new 52-week highs just this week (Charlotte, Dustin, Justin, Katie, Lee and Ruby).  Pretty sweet, no?

Now on to the people and pets, courtesy of Mario TY (with a couple additions from Mr. S):

  • Ruby (RJET) +7.8%.  The excitement has started to ramp up for the celebration of her 60th birthday in October. Yep, that’s it.
  • Zero (ZAGG) +7.5%.  The Grammys were last week. I’m pretty sure Zero probably hated most of the music in the Grammys, but still, it’s music. And Zero likes music.
  • Charlotte (ICE) +5.0%.  One of her favorite shows, “Community”, came back on the air last week, so Charlotte is clearly riding a high related to that.
  • Justin (SCI) +4.6%.  I got an email from Justin this week. This has happened twice before in history, I think, so I’m assuming Justin’s stock went up both times that he had the privilege of emailing me.
  • Nicole M. (COLM) +4.1%.  Nicole is very excited about the new addition in our house. I’m of course referring to the new dog food that we got Winston, since his old food resulted in diarrhea for like four straight days.
  • Icarus (FAST) +4.1%.  Maybe Icarus is excited because its warmer in the Northeast right now, meaning that he doesn’t have to go outside and pose for photos with icicles forming all over him.
  • Jodi Ann (JOY) +2.3%.  Monday is President’s Day, and teachers usually have the day off, right?
  • Lee (TGI) +2.0%.  Obviously not having to write this weekly recap has caused Lee to be up this week. Oh, and it’s Presidents Day, and I feel like Lee loves the institution of President of the United States.
  • Ghost Marisa (MOLXA) +1.5%.  I have nothing to say about Marisa. That’s probably the way ghosts like it.
  • Katie (CATY) +1.5%.  I think that between her birthday and the fact that I’m now joining Katie in watching the show “Parenthood”, it was easy to predict that she’d be up this week.
  • Mario TE (MGEE) +1.0%.  Dad is just looking for something to occupy his time and he may have found it this week.
  • Mario TE (MAR) +0.6%.  Despite the fact that the Super Bowl just ended, I’m already excited for the coming football season.
  • Nami & Lita (NL) +0.5%.  I know nothing about these cats. But if Charlotte’s happy, I’m guessing that means they’re happy, too. And Charlotte’s stock is up …
  • Dustin (DST) +0.3%.  He bought his tickets for the trip to Hawaii this week.
  • Wilson (WILC) unch.  Sounds just about right. He never seems too happy or too sad.
  • Lulu (LULU) -0.3%.  She misses Marisa. (She looks like she ate Marisa—Mr. Sensitive)
  • Reagan (REGN) -0.6%.  There are just 24 hours in a day, and Reagan needs more time for her homework.
  • Lucas (LEI) -0.6%.  I talked to Lucas on the phone this week. Still can’t get over the voice change.
  • Jenny (JNY) -0.7%.  Katie and Jenny stayed up to watch the Grammys. A little mother-daughter bonding time always kicks off a great week. (And then it kicks you in the face later in the week when you have to get up at 5:30—Mr. Sensitive)
  • Ed Winston (ED) -1.0%.  He didn’t get fed for a full day at one point this week as we attempted to work him through a stomach bug.
  • Lisa (LNCE) -1.7%.  They got tickets to Hawaii this week, so I’m assuming they’re on a budget for a few months.
  • Brinkley (BCO) -1.8%.  He might be down, but I’m guessing whoever makes the pacifier is up this week.
  • Nicole E. (NICE) -2.2%.  She probably loves the snow, so when it melted this week, Nicole was sad.
  • Marcus (MCS) -2.2%.  Marcus likes to teach, so the day off for Presidents Day is disappointing to him.
  • Zondro (ZQK) -5.8%.  Huge drop for Zondro. Could it be the post-Puppy Bowl blues?
