Financial Television Rodeo. Warm Pie. Watch Yo Step.

JUNE 30, 2019. Social media got it wrong. The real quote is “If it’s not on TV it didn’t happen.” Investing talk happens on TV. A lot of other things are going on at the same time, on the same exact channel. As Americans we could package a totaled dump truck with the most delicate diamond ring, and both would arrive “all good.” Same same with financial TV. Enjoy.

No Speed Limit To Silly. Chopsticks Please.

JANUARY 8, 2019. Wanna go for a joy ride? Snap on CNBC. A lot of fast air exists there. Some say Becky Quick can get Warren Buffet to talk truth. Becky is a stone professional fully capable of getting most any man to say nearly anything. On the other hand Joe Kernen just says, anything.
But really, the parade of financial advisors tromping through are the unreal deal. CNBC’S Chief Market analyst Bob Pisani is terrific. The man adroitly sums up market action in mere moments. Some say Americans are both lazy and violent–thus the drive-by. And that troop of “guests?” Is that some sort of lazy drive-by “advising?”

Bring chopsticks if you intend to consume. Continue reading No Speed Limit To Silly. Chopsticks Please.

DECEMBER 21, 2018. “We like the banks here.” Really? A thousand times. That’s the number of times in 2018 we’ve witnessed that cow pie observation.
Is that a recommendation, or shills posing as advisers? Banks have done precisely nothing all year. But one should never allow facts to interfere with sales. Television guests are supposedly providing insight. No. They’re selling their brand. It’s call conflict of interest. But then everybody knows that. More dodging and weaving happens on financial TV then in boxing. The foul tricks of the dodge and weave. Continue reading Eat Salesmen. Cows Don’t Shill.

MAY 14, 2018. Investing is hared work not magic. Unfortunately, the ranks of professional managed money are riddled with nonsense and fees paid for said. Great financial professionals exist. Yet, most are locked into a conflict of interest.
If money “doesn’t really matter,” why does everyone want yours? Trust is not a substitute for knowledge. Besides, if you have to actually pay someone to help you, how much is their assistance truly worth? And in the end, when they’re wrong, who pays? Right. Pay up front and again on the backside.
