No, Apple Doesn’t Care About Inflating It’s Senior Management/Board Minority Quota

Unless your a predominately minority institution (Such as a Historically Black College or the NAACP), there is usually a push to increase the diversity among the participants. The University I attended was no exception to this rule. Not to say that my university was predominately white, but chances are the classes you registered for would […]

The Nightmare On Wall Street

The end of the trading week has begun, and the start of a new nightmare begins, as this week marks the worst week for stocks since 2011. Not to mention the Dow experienced the largest point drop since the financial crisis. Um, ouch? And I know I’ve played this meme plenty of times before, but […]

Twitter Is Awesome…

Sorry, did I say the word ‘awesome?’ I was actually referring to the social media platform. I think its great being able to share your statuses, updates and ideas in real time. Aside from that, the company doesn’t exactly have the worst earnings in the tech industry, but the headline figures weren’t enough to keep […]

Chart of the Day: Financial Development & Economic Growth

There may have been a few gripes about my comments on the Greek financial sector and economic growth. I was discussing how a ‘Grexit’ would take away the ability of Greece banks to have access to the ‘lender-of-last-resort.’ This would give the financial sector access of less liquidity, which means less financial sector growth, which […]

Twitter’s CEO Search: Not Going So Well

Well, it’s pretty clear from Twitter’s message to investors. The search for a CEO for Twitter is still ongoing, with very little prospects of Jack Dorsey becoming the permanent CEO. That is, if Jack is still planning on being the CEO of Square. I’m not really sure why they couldn’t have announced Costolo’s resignation first, […]

I Never Did Like McDonald’s

Food or Financial wise, there is really very little that appeals about the company. The only time when I really enter a store is when I need to use the WiFi (which is probably worse than most Starbucks hotspots). The only other time is when there is absolutely nothing else around to eat. However, I […]

Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo Resigns

Um, good? And Twitter Shares during the Announcement? You can also read the letters of both Dick and Jack here regarding the resignation and the task of finding a suitable replacement. None of that really concerns me, so I won’t share it. The only part that is of concern is the fact that the CEO […]

Dimon: Voting Against My Pay Package Means You’re A Lazy & Stupid Investor

I don’t really talk about what I own or what stocks that I like, but aside from Rite Aid, I do like me some JP Morgan Chase & Co (NASDAQ: JPM). It’s consistently outperformed its peers regarding and it shows that it doesn’t need to rely on higher rates to secure revenue. Despite all of […]

Did you hear about the Apple Fanboy who tried to preorder an Apple Watch at 5 o’clock in the morning, only to be put on a three month waiting list? That’s exactly what happened to me. Apple decided to launch their preorders on Friday 12 am, pacific standard time, and in less than 2 hours, […]
