My Sure-Fire Cures For the Market Blues
One possible remedy
I have several suggestions for people interested in curing the market blues:
1. Dive into a box of See's chocolates. Approximately a half-pound left of the two-pound box I mentioned last week. (See conflict of interest disclaimer.)
2. Have a good laugh. Read Patrick Byrne's latest lie. (Here's a response from a soon-to-be-former member of the Investor Village stock-pump website.)
Or read Overstock.com resident stalker Judd Bagley's paranoid ravings on Wikipedia yesterday afternoon, before getting himself kicked off.
3. Think to yourself, "It could be worse. I could be a New Century Financial shareholder."
4. If you're a New Century Financial shareholder, think to yourself, "It could be worse. I could be a NovaStar shareholder."
5. If you're a NovaStar shareholder, try heroin.
