Tim Cook showing strong leadership at AAPL

Tim Cook Announces expanded 30 billion dollar buyback of AAPL shares, and a 7 for 1 stock split. In January of this year, after AAPL missed badly, the share price took a nose dive below $500.00 a share. And, truth be told, without some sort of intervention, sub $400 wasn’t out of the question. But what did Tim Cook do to stop the bleeding? He showed confidence in his own AAPL brand , and bought back 15 billion dollars worth of shares. The sell off stopped, and the share price rebounded, over the next couple of months to $550, only … Continued

Did APPLES’ chart foretell the drop in share price ?

Did APPLES’ chart (AAPL) foretell the drop in share price ? Does it still ? Technical Chart Analysts would probably say yes.  The chart below shows a two year long Inverted Cup and Handle pattern, with the handle represented by the upward diagonal channel on the right side of the chart. When the share price broke below the lower support line of that channel, AAPL shares dropped. Some would say that that ‘s  an easy call to make now, but it didn’t prove itself out until the share price fell. But the point is that once the share price fell … Continued

Art and Imagination

posted in: Art Collecting | 0

Art and Imagination Over the last few months and weeks, while I’ve been engaging myself in a book release, promotions, and guerilla marketing for my new book, STOCK MARKET BASEBALL, I find myself coming back full circle to those pursuits, and activities that interest me the most, and that give me the most fun, joy, and satisfaction. The arts. I can’t escape it. I love music and art, and the imagination of men and women who create .   I’ve become more active with Google+, as an avenue to present myself, and my work, to persons with similar interests in … Continued

Next to Highway Number 10 Dinosaurs live again

Next to Highway Number 10, Dinosaurs live again.   I wrote this song Next to Highway Number 10, about a crazy, fun place in Cabazon, California, next to Highway number 10, in Southern California. What made this place fun was the presence of life size statues of dinosaurs, like a Brontosaurus, and Tyrannasaurus Rex, that you could get out of your car, and walk around, under, and even inside, the dinosaurs. I don’t care how old, or young, you are, dinosaurs are cool, and this place couldn’t help but stir the imagination of anyone who’s ever been there, or driven by … Continued

Shadows in The Night love song by John George Campbell

Shadows in the Night love song Shadows in the Night is a romantic love song that I wrote for my FAMILY ALBUM CD. I would love to see a Pas de Deux ballet performed to this song. It just seems to me that the grace, and emotion displayed by ballet dancers would be a good match for the words and music of this song. This video is something new I put together using Haiku Deck, featuring an excerpt from the SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT. Haiku Deck is mostly visual, so I had to download the visual files to Powerpoint, and … Continued
