Thanks for overlooking my spelling. For some reason I can't go back and change anything, kinds like the stockmarket.
On FBP, it should be noted that $10,000 invested 5 years ago is worth $232 now. The big risk in GSL is mentioned in the article. I mentioned a big negative with VVTV in my last post.
That leaves CMRG. It looks like it's moving in the right direction, has a decent cash flow and no long term debt. But when it's sales are dropping in old stores and growing 9% in new stores, that sounds like numbers for a huge sector gorilla, not a chain with a market cap 10x smaller than Jos. A. Bank and 14x smaller than Men's Warehouse. When I consider a company like CMRG, I'm looking for a rule-breaker: what's it doing differently that's going to give it an edge on the bigger companies which otherwise have an advantage that comes with size? I don't see CMRP doing enough.
I’m not sure I understand how a sub $5 price tag implies a stock is cheap or likely to be a better buy than a higher priced stock. Does this imply that a stock trading at $100 is likely a worse investment, or that one share of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway class A stock at around $120,000 is the worst investment on the planet? In other words, if you only have enough to risk in the stock market to buy one share of stock for $5, STAY OUT OF IT! Otherwise, you’re likely to end up among the group which Buffett calls the 95 percent of investors in the stock market who shouldn’t be there.
"Our fundamental outlook for catalog retailers is negative. While catalog shopping remains popular among many time-pressed consumers, we believe the Internet has evolved in recent years from a "first look" destination to a widely accepted sales channel replacing and/or supplementing catalogs."
That reminded me that I have a QVC membership but have bought virtually nothing over the past few years. Meanwhile, I use Amazon so much that I preferentially use the Amazon.com Visa card since I get 3% cash-back at Amazon (and 2%-1% elsewhere).
Buffetts the best bet of the year, Mutual Funds are floundering, brokers are guessing,(with your money) the market
is in flux, Berkshire is set up as its own mutual fund, they own over 80 co's. which bring in billions in revenue which they in turn invest in other co's. A win win situation for the investor. Buy Berkshire and sleep well, HFlax
XM/Sirrius Radio at $2.31 is a great buy at minimum 1,000 share per purchase cycle. Mid Term Hold to reach equitable profits even long term. Well, it is ~2012~ Y'all.
The published list of FIVE to buy are ok.
Don't forget Sirius (SIRI) XM radio. $2.21 a share. Huge moat and even with a recent price increase most are renewing.
