Well for those of you who are long it was a great week with the market posting its best performance in a year. A word of caution though, the volume was very light and I don't think there was much conviction in the move. Next week second quarter earnings begin to roll in and that will be the major determinant of how stocks trade. Have a great weekend everybody!!!
On a personal note I would like to thank all those who made the past week the highest page view week in the history of Barrow Bits. I will continue to call them as I see them and hope you continue to log on!!
The just completed World Cup competition was a boom for soccer in the United States. The championship game on Sunday had a viewing audience of 26.3 million in the US, the biggest ever for a soccer game in the country and more than any of games in the 2009 World Series. Additionally, the demographics of those that were watching the game was definitely on the young side, suggesting that soccer has a fertile fan base brewing. Professional soccer is advancing in the US with new teams and new stadiums attracting good crowds. I will be looking for opportunities among public companies that can benefit from a stronger US market for soccer related merchandise and promotions. If any readers have any ideas, send them along.
Sondheim is making another revival on Broadway, and that wonderful song "Send in the Clowns" is a featured number. Upon reflection I think Mr. Sondheim should think of employing the senior management team of Evergreen as extras in the staging of the song since they would be perfect performing as clowns. Chief clown of course would be Tom Stoner who gave a brilliant comic performance Tuesday at the annual meeting. He had them rolling in the aisles with his rendition of happy days are hear again and how he has established "a solid go-forward strategy". Roars of laughter were heard as he told the crowd about how great things are (because of him of course) and how hard everybody works. Of course, before the meeting in an effort to whip up the crowd EEE put out some nutty PR having something to do with business in China for K-fool. Must admit after rereading a few times still don't know what it says? People who promote such confusion would be great clowns! There was so much more in Stoner's performance but I felt just one thing was missing. How come he didn't mention that since he became Chief clown the stock price has gone down by more than 90%. Seriously folks what can you really say about these delusional people who seem to get away with this crap without getting into trouble. Moreover, if the NYSE allows a company with these credentials to have a listing it will just exemplify all that is wrong with Wall Street. So they will do their reverse and qualify on price but does this company, at this stage of its history belong anywhere else but the pink sheets? Lots of people make money with EEE, unfortunately it's not the shareholders. Yeah, send in the clowns!!!
