There’s a Better Way to Answer the Question: “Are You Angry?”

 Video clip, Donny Deutsch Lumps Olbermann In With “Crazys” Limbaugh And Beck (via Mediaite). – Ilene 

 

Did MSNBC make a mistake in pulling Donny Deutsch’s show about anger in American media, which I never would have watched, but now kind of wouldn’t mind having it on in the background, or is this all a publicity grab?…  So, so cynical.

From Jr. Deputy Accountant: 

TLP: There’s a Better Way to Answer the Question: "Are You Angry?"

msnbc olbermann
MSNBC has spiked a planned weeklong report by adman Donny Deutsch called, "America the Angry," after part of one installment made network anchor Keith Olbermann, uh, angry. Deutsch included Keith-O in a segment on angry media figures, along with Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly. Hmmm, what could have set him off?

NYT:

The incident led to charges that MSNBC, a unit of NBC Universal, had stifled criticism of itself on its own channel.

“The segment did not go unnoticed and we’re dealing with it internally,” Jeremy Gaines, an MSNBC spokesman, said Wednesday.

Four people briefed on MSNBC’s decision said that Mr. Olbermann was angered by the segment, and that his displeasure prompted the cancellation of the “America the Angry” series. But in an e-mail message Mr. Olbermann said that account was untrue; he wrote that Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, “phoned me yesterday enraged at what was on that show and I didn’t disagree with him.”

Mr. Deutsch, the well-known advertising executive, declined to comment on either version of events Wednesday afternoon, but said that “for whatever reason they decided they didn’t want to go with it the rest of the week.”

Funny, but I don’t recall NBC pulling the plug on "Saturday Night Live" after this:

Mish Interview on OilPrice.Com: "Think Beyond Oil And Gold"

This past week I was interviewed by James Stafford at Oilprice.com.

We discussed, oil, gold, lithium, other natural resources, global opportunities, and even biotech plays.

Think Beyond Oil And Gold: Interview With Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock

The energy sector was certainly a bargain in January, but no one really knows where oil will be around Christmas. While we may have already seen the bottom, stock prices are not the bargain they were.

Market Recap May 25, 2016

Well things just got interesting.  Another significant gap up at the open and strong buying most of the session led to the S&P 500 and NASDAQ both up 0.70%.

Lance Roberts, chief investment strategist at Clarity Financial, said the technical backdrop for stocks has improved, but “we really need to see some follow-through by the end of the week.”

Oil’s gains and indications of a decreasing probability of the U.K. leaving the European Union were “what drove the sentiment change between yesterday and today,” said Andres Jaime, global FX and rates strategist at Barclays.

The Biggest Bitcoin Arbitrage Ever?

Courtesy of Chris at CapitalistExploits

Do you remember when you were growing up and all your friends were allowed Atari game consoles but you weren’t?

Well, I do and the things seemed as foreign to me as Venus. Mostly because the little time I managed to spend on the gaming consoles when my friends weren’t hogging them I found it all a bit silly. I never “got” computer games, and to this day still have poor comprehension of things like Angry Birds.

I suspect that many people around the world view Bitcoin in the same way as I view Angry Birds: with mild amusement and a general lack of understanding as to what the hell all the fuss is about.

I was thinking of this since a buddy of mine recently started ...

This Is Why Biotech Stocks May Explode Again

Reminder: Pharmboy and Ilene are available to chat with Members.

Here's an interesting article from Investor's Business Daily arguing that biotech stocks are beginning to recover from their recent declines, notwithstanding current weakness.

This Is Why Biotech Stocks May Explode Again

By 

Excerpt:

After a three-year bull run that more than quadrupled its value by its peak last July, IBD’s Medical-Biomed/Biotech Industry Group plunged 50% by early February, hurt by backlashes against high drug prices and mergers that seek to lower corporate taxes.

About that debate last night

Although we try to stay focused on finding and managing promising trade ideas, the comments in the comment section sometimes take a political turn (for access, try PSW — click here!). So today, Jean Luc writes,

The GOP debate last night was just unreal – are these people running to be president of the US or to lead a college fraternity! Comparing tool size? The only guy that looks semi-sane is Kasich. The other guys are just like 3 jackals right now. 

And something else – if Trump is the candidate, that little Romney speech yesterday is probably already being made into a commercial. And all these little snippets from the debate will also make some nice ads! If you are a conservative, you have to be scared now.

Help One Of Our Own PSW Members

"Hello PSW Members –

This is a non-trading topic, but I wanted to post it during trading hours so as many eyes can see it as possible.  Feel free to contact me directly at jennifersurovy@yahoo.com with any questions.

Last fall there was some discussion on the PSW board regarding setting up a YouCaring donation page for a PSW member, Shadowfax. Since then, we have been looking into ways to help get him additional medical services and to pay down his medical debts.  After following those leads, we are ready to move ahead with the YouCaring site. (Link is posted below.)  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated; not only to help aid in his medical bill debt, but to also show what a great community this group is.

Thank you for you time!
