   Jim's Quotes from this segment:  

Jim:
          
In Spam We Trust... seriously... Spam. Bear with me for a moment. Now, I know we had a remarkable resurgence today. It was a truly amazing levitation... a dramatic switch... with the average nosediving in the morning... before skyrocketing right back. A true victory for the bulls. Yeah, I mean it.

Here's my problem. We've been blitzed by optimism so many times that maybe we've got to start learning some lessons here. Put simply... without something truly terrific happening overnight, we're going right back down!

We also have to recognize that this is dangerous moment, and we need stocks in our portfolio that can work regardless of what happens in Europe... because they simply don't have exposure to the faltering continent... which brings me to Spam. Or, more specifically, to Hormel Foods, the purveyor of Spam, which reported a "lost in the shuffle of Germany and France and Italy" dynamite quarter last night. I want to talk about Spam, because it represents so much of what is right at a time when so much is wrong!

Here's the bottom line...

▼   ▼   ▼   ▼   ▼

Hormel may not be your cup of tea, or Spam juice for that matter, but I bring it up as an example of what will get you through this tough period... a company that has domestic security, that benefits from the collapse in commodities, that's easily understood, pays a nice dividend and, best of all, it isn't Facebook!

Please note our anticipated schedule for posting these recaps:
Because we view each episode after it airs at 6pm Eastern time, we need time to compile the comments, code the pages
and post to the site, thereby, we're usually able to post each night's episode
prior to the market open (i.e., 9:30am) the following business day.     Thank you!   Thinking of a New Trademark?  Free trademark information site here >>
