   Jim's Quotes from this segment:  

Jim:
          
If you want drama, go to the theater! That's the lesson of a day like today, where the averages got completely pummeled, with the Dow sinking 161 points... People are drawn to drama like moths to a flame in this market, just seeking it out. That's a huge mistake.

Now here's the amazing thing about all these dramas. As any good English teacher will tell you, the essence of drama is conflict. And RIMM, Facebook and Morgan Stanley all have conflict to spare. But I've got three solid plays that have no drama whatsoever. They're comedies. Brilliant, well-orchestrated comedies, with a real "all's well that ends well" feel. Although in each case, they are much ado about something, not nothing.

Remember, we're investors, not theater critics... which is why, instead of Research In Motion, you should consider Verizon, which owns half of Verizon Wireless and supports a 4.8% yield.

Instead of Facebook, may I suggest Apple? Did you see that company today? Whoa. Smokin'. Here's a company with tons of growth, a fantastic balance sheet, and an incredibly low price-to-earnings multiple... not a dollar amount, but a price-to-earnings multiple... that's well off its high... not to mention new products that could dazzle, including perhaps a Siri-operated TV. Can you imagine asking that knockout, smokeshow, Siri, to please put on Mad Money, only to hear her coo, "Your wish is my command." Ooh, doctor!

Finally, do we need to get down and dirty with Morgan Stanley, if we can own a bank that makes its money from actual banking, not complex financial derivatives and trading? I'm talking about Wells Fargo, which used the financial crisis as cover to grab almost 30% of the mortgage market, at a time when making mortgages has become a terrific way to print money.

Here's the bottom line...

▼   ▼   ▼   ▼   ▼

Hey, no doubt about it... drama can be great for Broadway. But it's terrible in your portfolio. So don't think Research In Motion or Facebook or Morgan Stanley... all epic stock dramas that could make you weep... oh, yeah... waiting for Gudeau... you know what I mean? Instead, go with Verizon, Apple and Wells Fargo. These are all plays that will leave you smiling, with a good feeling that makes you want to come back for more. Now that's my kind of entertainment.

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 >>
