FSX Friday Update

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 21:48

The stock market traded down sharply for a second straight week, with the S&P 500 falling 2.1% amidst rising bond yields and anemic trading volume.  Are we in for another brief, shallow correction?  To me, at least, this feels more substantive.  The news flow has been sparse, but almost uniformly negative.  When all the hedgies come back from the Hamptons in September we’ll find out if there’s fire behind all this smoke, or if it’s just a bunch of rich dudes with sunburns.

The Family Stock Index is having a bad month.  Since we peaked at 16,610 on August 2, the FSX has taken a two-week nosedive, plunging 934 points, or 5.6% in two weeks.  I blame Brinky—he’s the only FSX member with a gain over that period, so he must be up to something really terrible.

Advancers and decliners courtesy of the ladies.


  • Jodi Ann (JOY) +2.3%. Reagan: Because she’s joyously joyous. And, um, she is like 6 months pregnant and she is about to have a baby (Reagan’s excitement includes clapping). She’s like, “I’m so excited I’m able to give my niece a cousin that’s a girl.”
  • Nicole E. (NICE) +2.3%. Reagan: Um, Nicolie…Nic-ole. Ooohhh…I know! Maybe she has a new movie she’s going to be doing art directorously directus. Katie and Lee: Or maybe it’s because of this awesomeness.


  • Nami & Lita (NL) +1.9%. Reagan: Nami and Lita. Let us see. Ayanami and Alita. Um, okay, so, they are so excited that their owner (Chawly of course) is going to be starting school and then she’ll be able to homeschool them and they’ll be able to learn human stuff, like mice are terrible. Lee: With Charlotte gone a lot of the time, they’ll be able to finish the job of killing and eating Zero. Jenny: Why would they do that?  Lee: They’re predators.  Like jaguars.


  • Lee (TGI) -4.1%. Jenny: Daddy’s down because he has to write 4 more chapters. Reagan: Because he doesn’t approve of my engagement to my invisible fiancé, who lives in my closet. He’s been stealing Jenny’s clothes for the last six months.
  • Mario the Elder (MGEE) -4.9%. Reagan: He’s going to get teased by his granddaughter because that car he got this week is probably the 1600th car he’s bought in the last 10 years.
  • Icarus (FAST) -5.7%. Reagan: He’s sad that he’s been missing out on me repeatedly doing Disturbia on Just Dance 4. Katie: Maybe Nicole can do a performance there to make him feel better.
  • Ruby (RJET) -5.9%. Reagan: She probably doesn’t approve of Grandpa getting his 1600th car.
  • Ed Winston (ED) -6.1%. Reagan: Winston. He, um, is actually really really sad that he can’t have some of that carbonated soda there from the Sodastream. Because he’s a dog. Shame.
  • Zero (ZAGG) -6.2%. Reagan: He is actually really dreading the fact that Nami and Lita are out to kill him. At first he was fine with it, but then he was like, “Oh god! They’re actually going to kill me!” So boom.
  • Jenny (JNY) -7.1%. Reagan: She’s jealous that she’s not engaged. Jenny: Not really. I am down because I’m out of books. And that affects me greatly. Reagan: Being out of books is like being out of food for Jenny.

(Side note by Mr. S.—We have plenty of books.  We just don’t have any of the crap books Jenny likes, so she’s reading The Host again.  That’s right, not even TwilightThe Host.  Gah.)

  • Reagan (REGN) -7.6%. Jenny: Because Reagan’s engaged to an imaginary person. Reagan: No, it’s because my teacher letter hasn’t come. Lee: Reagan used the word selfie in front of me, thereby making us both dumber. Jenny: And also because she hasn’t read The Host that I want her to read.

(Side note—gah.)

  • Zondro (ZQK) -8.1%. Lee: Cause he’s a g.d. moron. Reagan: He’s jealous that his fur isn’t like my hair is. My hair is awesome. Jenny: He’s an idiot. Lee: But he’s a really nice dog.  I like his coloring, too.  That’s a nice color on a dog.

  1. My stock wasn’t up this week for turning in my football picks on time? I thought for sure I would see an improvement.
