It’s a little after 8 AM and it looks like it’s gonna be a hot one today (or it is supposed to one of the hottest days since January). I actually should be coming back from my morning 5-mile run right now, but instead, I’m here blogging. Why not? There are 24 hours in a day. Yeah, I’ll be ready for the Broad Street Run by May 5th. Of course. Maybe. That said. I did get some early morning writing done. So all of today’s goals are not lost. I can always run in the evening where I’ll still be able to take advantage of the very warm weather were going to have.
Anyway, right now a hot cup of coffee and toast is about to be had while I watch CNBC. Yes, when I’m not thinking about erotica(sex on the brain) I think about the other things that contribute to my livelihood. I’ll be checking on some pending earnings announcements on a few big companies. I’m looking at Proctor & Gamble, Coke, and eBay in particular – note I will never recommend stocks on here or say what stocks I own, but I will let you know what stocks look interesting or peak my interest and leave it at that. I trade and invest in stocks when I’m not putting pen to paper writing stories. One pays the bills faster than the other. A good book BTW on the subject of investing in stocks is The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing. I own quite a few books on the subject and this, in my opinion, is one I think pretty much anyone can read casually and gain a basic understanding of the stock market and investing.
More about my morning ritual(s) I like to catch Jim Cramer’s segment in the morning on CNBC. I don’t normally catch his show Mad Money in the evenings. Some people have a love or hate for Cramer, but I think he has some great insights on a lot of companies that tend to be of interest to most viewers or investors. On that note let me get to trading and I’ll catch you all on the flip side! Have a great day!
PSA: I will post a book of the day of a book I’m currently reading or have read. It will likely be various types of books as I’m always reading (fiction. non-fiction, self-help, how-to, etc.) Books I mention in passing like I did with the book I mentioned above won’t count as the book of the day. In this case, it’s just part of the conversation. Think of it as a bonus. 🙂
Book of the day on my bookshelf or on my Kindle: Michelle Obama’s memoir, ‘Becoming’. An almost conversational read as though you were sitting in the same room with her as she tells her story.
