New Year's Eve at Market Chess Cinemas

I am often asked to recommend television series readily available on Netflix or Amazon Prime.  With this in mind, on New Year's Eve I thought it would be a good opportunity to publish a list of my top ten television series from this century, thus far.  A few criteria to make this list: 1) A minimum of two seasons to qualify 2) New episodes were...

The Tulip Bubble

We will conclude our holiday series of historical and educational blog posts by examining the Tulip Bubble (as well as the Dutch Golden Age for background).  The Tulip Bubble has been compared to Bitcoin, fair or not. Even if the analogy does not align, these videos still make for great history lessons.

Dusk Falls on 2017

Regarding the final trading sessions of 2017, we appear to be going out with a bit more of a whimper than a bang, in terms of overall stock action.

Under Armour Walking the Plank

Amid speculation that UAA CEO Kevin Plank may be preparing to exit the firm he founded and built from scratch into a prominent athletics brand, the stock seems to be at the quintessential do-or-die crossroads.  Under Armour has easily been one of the more disastrous big name stocks this year. Granted, retail took its sweet old time to wake up...

Christmas Eve at Market Chess Cinemas

Just a few years after the shopping mall had opened, my father took me to AMC theaters at Newport Centre in Jersey City, New Jersey, right around Christmas of 1990.  The occasion, that time, was to see the re-release of Goodfellas (1990) which had officially been released on September 19th, 1990. Back in those days, though, the holidays...
