A winner must be willing to  embrace change and  welcome challenge. The biggest “fear,” if there is  one, is not of the unknown, but of becoming complacent and stagnant. An environment of change and even uncertainty can energize a mentally strong person and bring out their best. 

A winner is willing to take calculated risks. This is a different thing entirely than jumping headlong into foolish risks. But with mental strength, an individual can weigh the risks and benefits thoroughly, and will fully assess the potential downsides and even the worst-case scenarios before they take action



 The  Daily Log
The Daily Log
Carl Icahn (the activist), Elon Musk (the genius) and Jeff Bezos (outside the box creative internet mastermind) have the creative juices, initiate, knowhow, power, money and abiity to get the most out of and/or grow companies.
The same t stuff that made Steve Jobs want he was. Jobs made Apple a major company, it foundered when he went away, and fourished when he returned. 
The iconic Icahn has spent decades buying into companies, tearing up it's shoddy management and making those companies more profitable for shareholders.
Regardless of your feelings about Carl Icahn, he has been a major success story, especially in the last few years. Carl currently is heavy into Apple AAPL stock. He bought a boatful of shares at 468 awhile back but hasn't stop. He recently has poured more funds into AAPL stock and now owes over 300 Billion in shares. He calls buying AAPL a 'no-brainer'. With all the access he has to analyze companies and his continued buying into AAPL I beleive bods well for all current shareholders which includes myself.
I started accumulating AAPL stock in 2009 when it's share price was below $100. When AAPL's stock went to 700 and fell to the 400's I did not sell a single share. This is well-documented in the numerous blogs and comments I have made over this period of time.
When a stock I own or promote, goes the wrong way, a number of members of the stock market peanut gallery start their negative picking. In most cases, at the end of the day, however, it is I who has the last laugh.
I do have a problem with AAPL. Tim Cook, the current CEO appears to be nothing more than a caretaker for Steve Jobs ideas. I have concerns when Tim needs to go past the Steve Jobs company plan. The AAPL board appears to be non-creative and a do-nothing group. Apple is stagnant in many regards as it has a massive horde of cash with no apparent plan on effective ways to use it.
This is where Carl comes in. He is going to do his best to shake up this group and get some action on using the idle cash.
I can only dream what AAPL would be with someone the likes of Jeff Bezos (amzn guru) or Elon Musk (founder and ceo of Telsa TSLA).
In the past I have propose that AAPL buy out NFLX Netflix. If they did, the stock would be over 1,000 today!  
Google GOOG, another stock I own, is doing and becoming what I thought AAPL would be. GOOG has it's hands in a number of areas and is committed to be a world leader. 
Amazing Amazon (Jeff bezos) has a simple mission statement - sell anything to anyone anywhere.
Elon Musk is in the beginnings of shaking up the fossil fuel auto business with all electric automobiles which will be selling around the world very very soon.

Today, businesses need to  operate under a vast different business world than it did 15, 10 even 5 years ago! Companies today need to be involved in rapid development,  emerging technologies,  and externally driven innovation. 
Elon, Bezos, Icahn.... don't bet against them!

 Carl Icahn on Wednesday blasted the Apple  board, saying it is "doing a great disservice to shareholders by not having markedly increased its buyback."
Icahn owes 3 billion dollars worth of AAPL stock, the bulk he bought at 468. Following Icahn the last few years has done very well.

Thursday, Icahn buys even more Apple...........

2:50pm Closed out daytrade on DXD.


I have always felt that one of the better methods of

playing the market related to buying and selling based on Sentiment and seasonal and historical market tendencies. As such, this change in the portfolio will be based on these factors. I will continue with the Catching Fire portfolio which currently has a net profit in less than two months of public  trading.

More details to come in the coming days. I thank all my followers and guests from Stocktwits and wish you all well. Best regards, MightyMo

Regarding the Catching Fire portfolio. My real account in part mimics most but not all  of the same stocks at different buying prices and different quantities.



                                                                                       Are you going after the big fish?
This site isn't all about the stock market. However, with the daily updating of the stock market, it took most of my time. I am still going to discuss  the stock market but also  going to relate more to other parts of this site - such as the paintings, my hobbies such as estate sale treasure hunting, movies, autos, etc.
I have developed a good following if the Blogger statistics I get are correct. It will be interesting to see how they change in the coming months. As stated, I will start a new public stock market portfolio. There's so technical issues to work out. One being displaying Options.
