Landed here last night, first time ever here. Met a couple friends and they took me to a fabulous Brew/Pub called Level 33. The picture to the left doesn't do it justice, but we were on a terrace on the 33rd floor with a spectacular view of the harbor.
It is weird to be here, 13 hours ahead of NYC. It is morning, but I am reading the financial news at the NYSE closing. Looks like I got some great news on GME, which is becoming one of my larger holdings (GameStop's stock surges after new software sales rise during holiday period ).
BKE went x their special dividend. That is a snappy $3 a share I will get shortly. It is part of my new MFI Formula portfolio, which is really hanging in there.

And that is before the potential 5 to 8% pop GME should get tomorrow.
Oil prices continue to crash. I am just blown away by the drop. One could have made A LOT of money if you had predicted this 6 months ago. SCO (a ETF that shorts oil) has gone from $25 to $100 in that period. It seems like there is some money to be made here, but I am staying away from the space. I keep expecting some names from this space to start showing up on MFI screens, but am not seeing it yet.
Well, I need to get ready for the day.
