Our DOW is down 200 points because of this.

 

The Dow fell over 200 points on Monday, sliding along with other markets around the world, as worries about Russian intervention in Ukraine had investors fleeing assets perceived as risky.

Gold prices rose and U.S. Treasury yields fell on heightened tensions involving Russia's threat to use military force in Ukraine, which mobilized its army and requested foreign observers. Secretary of State John Kerry was on his way to Kiev Monday after saying Russia risked possible sanctions.

 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was 233 points, or 1.4 percent, lower in early afternoon trading, while the S&P 500 lost 23 points and the Nasdaq was 65 points down.

 

On the New York Mercantile Exchange, gold futures for April delivery rose $32.50, or 2.5 percent, to $1,354.10 an ounce. Crude-oil futures for April delivery added $2.30, or 2.2 percent, to $104.89 a barrel.

Kinda wondering how the whole Oculus sale to Facebook did to either one's stock? Does anyone know? I'm not a stock guy but dream of putting stock in and at one time thought Oculus would had been a good one, I wonder if the sale was good for it or bad?

I don't believe Oculus VR is a publicly traded stock. Hilariously though people were buying the wrong stocks that had the word Oculus in their business name which prompted the wrong companies to have a bump in stock prices temporarily. Facebook on the other hand has been down about 7 percent since the purchase.

Thanks for the info. That's pretty funny about the name.

Looking good out there boys!

We like to give Boarder a hard time but we should also recognize that Microsoft has been doing really well lately. They reported good numbers again yesterday. This obviously makes him happy but me too as I have a good chunk of that stock in the retirement portfolio.

That's because they got rid of Balmer.

 

 

Oh and @ndboarder has been drinking a ton of their kool-aid.

Ya while I am sure it offered some interesting things to watch, wrestling doesn't need an entire channel dedicated to it. That money could had been put to better use. Wrestling needs to go back to it's glory days.

Just another reason I see Mcdonald's getting rid of more employees to save money.

 

McDonald's Is Secretly Testing Its Own Order-Ahead And Payments App

 

McDonald’s is quietly testing an order-ahead and mobile payment app at a tiny handful of its more than 14,000 U.S. locations.

The pilot is limited to 22 locations in the Columbus, Georgia area. Called “McD Ordering,� the app links to a credit or debit card, which is automatically charged when a customer arrives and scans a QR code displayed at the restaurant.

 

The phone then displays the customer's order number. Once everything's ready, the customer picks up food and drinks — without waiting in a line or interacting with a cashier.

It's not just them I foresee alot more companies going this way. Soon there really won't be any jobs left in America.

So for those of you looking to invest I would really start researching drone companies or those that supply the parts for them. I think in the next 5 years drone are going to be big business not only for companies to use but also it's gonna be in politics alot.
