Tuesday Randomosity

  • Today's reason du jour for the stock market advance? Dip buyers! Really. Seems like, according to Yahoo Finance, that after a few days down, folks just can't help themselves and they buy stocks.

  • Oh, and Microsoft buys Skype. This may have been a bigger deal a few years ago. I'm thinking Face Time does the same sort of things, and is more convenient. Just saying.

  • Disney has poor 2Q because of downtime in Japan theme parks and Mars Needs Moms. Hey, it was the stock that could do no wrong. And this is one of those companies that could directly be hit by consumers paying more at the pump for fuel, too.

  • Romeo out on Dancing with the Stars. Hmm, I thought the Karate Kid Ralph Macchio would be out next...

  • Google launching cloud-based music service. Hmm. Well, it's not a fresh idea, but if it's incorporated into Android correctly, it'll be a hit.

  • House Speaker John Boehner says that tax hikes are off the table. Non-starter. Won't happen. Read his lips. You get the idea. Well, that ought to shore up the dollar, eh? Republicans remove tax hikes, while Democrats remove spending cuts. Lah, lah, lah, lah, life goes on.

Late night at the office, so I didn't work out tonight. Started week 13 of weights last night. Just didn't have time or energy after work today. That kind of day...
