Tweet There are a lot of terrible holidays out there (LOOKING AT YOU, COLUMBUS DAY), but St. Patrick’s Day has to be the worst. What started off as a tenuous holiday at best has quietly devolved into an excuse for the best of our society to act like the worst of the Irish. A great nation gets reduced to dumb stereotypes of binge drinking and making everything green, because those are the first two things we associate with Ireland. No word on whether people eat potatoes and talk like leprechauns to complete Read More […]

Tweet Like some of you reading this, I waited with some anticipation for Warren Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders. Time zones worked out nicely for me this year; I was able to read it at 10PM in Korea, making it the perfect end to an otherwise productive day of playing Command and Conquer Red Alert against some random guys from Finland. Here’s the letter if you’re interested and haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Maybe it’s because I recently re-read The Snowball, but I didn’t find Buffett’s wisdom all that Read More […]

Tweet I have a feeling most of you won’t be reading this blog between the hours of 4pm and 8pm (MST). Because that’s when the SUPOER BOWL IS ON BABY. Will Brady and his deflated balls run past the Seahawks? Will Marshawn Lynch actually say anything if the ‘Hawks emerge victorious? And most importantly, will YOUR BOY Nelly be able to stream the game in South Korea? Don’t fret little ones. I have already secured a (hopefully) dependable online stream, and my alarm is set for 8:00am local time for Read More […]

Tweet Because hey, we haven’t done one of these in a while. I’ve had a busy last few weeks, heading back from Korea to Canada to see the family, take care of a few things, and mostly to skirt Korean immigration laws. FINE KOREA I’LL LEAVE WHEN YOU WANT ME TO GEEZ. It’s a good think you have the power to punish me. If you ever have the longing desire to feel wanted, go back home after being gone for a few months, especially if you still have lots of Read More […]

Tweet So guys, here’s the dealie-o. Over the past few months, pretty much all the reader feedback has kind of gone like this. “I like the stuff you talk about, but where are the LOLs?” Y’all are right. LOLs are fun. Let’s have more of them, starting right now. Besides, I have plenty of other places to write that HATE JOKES SO MUCH. Where else can you go to get your finance information and your daily quota of terrible jokes about my body? Exactly. — So Vanessa got me a Read More […]

Tweet Instead of one thought worthy of preamble, you get several random ones. Think of it as the least delicious helping of scrambled eggs ever. I wrote about Urbana a few months ago. It’s a closed end fund that invests primarily in financial stocks. It also has a large holding in a few privately owned stock markets, which have performed well for it over the last few years. The fund owns about $2.85/share worth of assets, and you can pick it up for $1.87 per share. With the company buying back Read More […]

Tweet Sick of hearing about my travels yet? TOO BAD SUCKAS. I OWN YOU. I’m writing this in a “business hotel” in Osaka, which is really just a Japanese version of a motel. My room consists of a bed, tiny TV (which has a pay-per-view porn option by buying a card from a vending machine), a small desk, and a bathroom the size of an airplane lavatory. Forget about the sites, let’s talk a little about Japan’s impending demographic doom. A third of the population is over 65, and 40% Read More […]

Tweet By this point next week, your old pal Nelly will be in Japan. Insert your own panties in a vending machine joke here. Is it sad that the very first thing I got excited about was the fact that they drive on the wrong side of the road there? Because I certainly did. I can just picture getting t-boned by some Toyota being driven by a Japanese man on the phone. He’ll be very apologetic, but I’ll be dead, all because I looked the wrong way crossing the street. Read More […]

Tweet It’s the long weekend. What are you doing here? Oh, your family doesn’t love you? …That’s awkward. Do they even like you? No? Yikes. Okay, don’t fret. The fine folks here at Financial Uproar (see how I made it sound like this is a legitimate business instead of some jackass with a laptop?) have some good weekend content to keep you entertained. In reality, you picked a great weekend to spend here and not with your family. Why? Because all the hotel websites are giving away all sorts of discounts Read More […]

Tweet Notice how the title says SHORTING Coke and not SNORTING Coke? I feel like it’s important that you know the difference between the two. I’ve talked about this a number of times before, but I really think you’re a sucker to buy Coca-Cola shares at these levels. It trades at more than 22x earnings, even though income (and revenue) has been pretty flat. It keeps buying back shares by using debt, even as it gives ALL the options to management, pretty much negating the effort. And it’s getting practically desperate Read More […]
