FSX Friday Update

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 17:21

The Dow is up 450 points over the last two days, continuing the rally I talked about in my earlier post.  It looks like there will be a deal in Washington.  All I’ll say at this point is that Obama better hold the line—you can’t call the shutdown and the default threat extortion and give the extorters anything, especially when their popularity is plummeting, their caucus is fracturing, and they have no leverage.  If Obama caves in now, the Democrats in the House and Senate should impeach him themselves.

The Family Stock Index slumped with the broader market earlier in the week but only managed to claw back to a marginal loss (-0.1%), badly trailing the 0.8% gain in the S&P 500.  Advancers outnumbered decliners 3-to-2, but it didn’t matter in the end.  If Reagan’s against you, it doesn’t matter who’s for you.

  • Winston (ED) +3.2%.  If Winston doesn’t learn to toe the line—and do it quietly—he’s going to struggle in New Baby Land.  I wonder if the market is anticipating Winston that will be relocating…to Hilton Head.  That’s got to be an upgrade from snowy Pennsylvania.
  • Mario the Elder (MGEE) +3.2%.  Who knew Grandpa wanted a dog—and an Airedale, no less?  He never fails to surprise.
  • Lisa (LNCE) +3.0%.  I love Lance peanut bars—they are my favorite snack right now, and it’s not even close.  So the other day I got a half-filled peanut bar wrapper, prompting Katie to tweet at Lance to tell them we were disappointed—and I’ll be damned if they didn’t send a letter of apology plus coupons for two packs of peanut bars.  Lisa’s pleasant demeanor is rubbing off on her representative company—I guess the psychic FSX connections can work in both directions.
  • Katie (CATY) +2%.  It doesn’t hurt that yourgirlsandboy is a social media powerhouse.

Decliners

  • Jenny (JNY) -1.7%.  Jenny’s planning to go trick-or-treating with five other girls, all but guaranteeing that her candy yield will be a fraction of what it’s been in prior years.  I tried to warn her, but she doesn’t believe me (of course), and on top of that she seems to think that Halloween is about having fun.  It’s about candy.  Candy, candy, and more candy.
  • Ruby (RJET) -5.5%.  Ruby isn’t looking forward to adopting Winston when he’s kicked out of New Baby Land?  Say it ain’t so!
  • Reagan (REGN) -5.9%.  Reagan’s been getting more and more meltdown-y lately.  A beach trip—even a brief one—might help.  Either way, she’s had a heck of a run this year, up 70% in 2013 even after a two-week pullback.
  • Icarus (FAST) -7.7%.  Icky whiffed on earnings this week and he took it on the chin.  It may be time to go back to school and get that degree.  At the very least, he needs to get his gas situation under control—relentless farting doesn’t make the best impression in job interviews.

  1. Glad to hear that Lance is living up to our “L-Nice” moniker 🙂
