A plug about one of my most favorite companies…Amazon.com!

The following are posts I wrote on Twitter about one of my favorite companies in the world.  Amazon.com!  You really can’t beat the convenience and sometimes the price.

Jim Cramer Interview On The Daily Show

This clip is essentially the best part of the showdown between Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart.  Stewart basically tears a new a**hole in Cramer.  Some of what he says is justified, but come on, a lot of it is to generate ratings and talk for the next day.  I still like Jim Cramer.

I love buying stock!

The economy may be tanking, but that is not preventing me from buying shares of my favorite stocks.  I collect small amounts of stock in companies I either admire or that pay high dividends.  I do this mainly through my ShareBuilder
account where I buy small portions of a stock on a regular schedule.   The stock my rise and fall, but I still buy the same amount with each investment.  Over a period of time, the cost equals out.   This is called dollar cost averaging.  I treat my ShareBuilder as a play account.  I love ShareBuilder!  For the most part, I only own one or two shares.  At the most, I have about 10 shares of only a couple stocks.  I just enjoying buying and watching my portfolio.   I never sell. Buy and hold only.

My favorite stocks in no particular order are:

  • Altria (MO)
  • Blockbuster (BBI)
  • Disney (DIS)
  • Google (GOOG)
  • Kraft (KFT)
  • Krispy Kreme (KKD)
  • McDonald’s (MCD)
  • Marvel Entertainment (MVL)
  • Phillip Morris International (PM)
  • Reynold’s American (RAI)
  • World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)
