Sometims you wonder if Anylists are touting stocks for their own good.

I find it better following my own research and have been succesful on my own

As I am of the generation that was instilled with respect fo doctors, lawyers, accountants and police. In my day we had a cop on a beat, no cell phone, no car, he was part of the neighborhood and well liked. 
As an adult and one of the "Lambs taken to slaughter" in the 2000 stock bubble my attitude is now doctors, lawyer, Accountants as a rule have no integrity. They will do what they are paid to do. Whatever it is as long as they can make a buck. Just a bunch of avaricious whores.  Now just to be fair there are great people in these professions who do meaningful work. 
I was taught to question authority and so I question the relevance of the stock market: common shares in particular. 
In the event of a failure of the company, common shares have no value, no position in the liquidation. . Their is no intrinsic value other than  perception. Company fails; you get nothing.
This is an old request, but due to a down economy and a burgeoning stock market, It's just plan oxymoronic and defies gravity. 
As Gekko said in "WallStreet", You're either on the inside or your on the outside". On this basis I demand that brokerages that sell common shares pay the same big money that Gambling Casino's pay for a gaming license. Common shares have proven over and over that they are a game of chance. 
Actually I advocate for the elimination of common shares altogether.
The people who run and control the market are in the same exact position as those who own and operate casino's. (Although I don't believe casino's "cook the books" to the degree the market does). Thanks for listening, but remember what Gekko said, "You're either on the inside or you are on the Outside"; no statement is more true than this and you can bet this came from the "horses mouth" O. Stones father. A broker.  Maxwiley

The problem with ink printers is the cartridges cost more than the printer did.
