TGIF Randomosity and Beer

We made it through another week with $AAPL, $GOOG, $JPM, and all making big news. The market looks very wobbly. But it is Friday.

Time for a beer?

  • Did you see that the SP500's 7-week winning streak ended this week? Not even close, 1972 Miami Dolphins.
  • Yesterday's after hours saw a positive reaction to Larry Page taking over at $GOOG. What a difference a day makes! "Founder becoming CEO ... Is this like a Steve Jobs returning or a Jerry Yang returning?" Chris Dixon, a technology veteran ... tweeted.
  • Under misleading headlines: US Blue-Chip Stocks Close Higer. Yeah but... Nasdaq didnt. Listen to that last audioboo for my thoughts on that!
  • Taco Bell has decided MTV's new series "Skins" is too spicy for its taste and pulled its ads from the drama, which has been criticized as glamorizing teen sex, drugs and boozing. Ticker is $YUM. Crunchwrap and some TV? Remember when MTV used to show music videos? Do they still do that?
  • Under misleading headlines, too: The Dow snaps two-day losing streak. Sure. Pay no attention to that NASDAQ market hiding behind the curtain.
