Sales Of Propecia, Trump’s Anti-Baldness Drug, Will Go Through The Roof — Buy MRK Shares.

Shares of ‘Propecia’ maker Merck & Co. (MRK). From ‘marketwatch.com’ — where else?



Wow! Best plug Merck (MRK) has had in years. Will do wonders for the sales of PropeciaErectile Dysfunction (ED) or no dysfunction.

This will be great for shares of MRK.

MRK shares, as you can see from the graph above, have already taken off. But, at ~$62 you should definitely get some.

I was curious as to why my doctors had put me on Cardura for prostate health rather than Propecia — given that I need all the help I can get when it comes to retaining the little hair I have. Now, I know. My doctors have always known what is important to me. Hair or ED? I don’t think that there is even a choice.

But, buy MRK. You will thank me. Don’t take Propecia. You will thank me.

Does “Ken Fisher” Of “Fisher Investments” Have Any Idea Of His Resemblance To “Anthony Weiner”?

by Anura Guruge





I had CNBC on this morning in our bedroom while I was doing my post-run ablutions. I came out, brushing my teeth and did a DOUBLE TAKE and these thoughts flashed through my mind: “why is Anthony Weiner on TV, I thought he was in prison … why is Anthony Weiner doing a commercial? …. why would anybody be stupid enough to hire Anthony Weiner to do a commercial“.

Then I realized that it wasn’t actually Weiner.

Took me a second to work out that this must be the owner of Fisher Investments.

Then I felt BAD. Doesn’t he realize that he can be mistaken for Weiner. Hasn’t anybody told him that. Kind of spoils the whole commercial. Once the Weiner thought crosses your mind that commercial is toast.

Am I the ONLY one who sees this similarity — and I am acutely aware, from the hits I get here, that I saw a similarity between Frank Fritz Of ‘American Pickers’ and another jailbird.

Never mind. Ken Fisher is probably a billionaire and it doesn’t matter who he gets mistaken with.

Discover Card’s FREE ‘Credit Report Activity’ Monitoring Seems To Work.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I like my Discover Credit Card.

I have had it since 1991, i.e., I have been a member for 27-years. During that time I do not think I have ever had a problem with them.

Something about them. They just, always, seem different — but, in a GOOD WAY without fail. They just seem so eager and happy to please.

Recently, following the criminal Equifax debacle they sent me an e-mail offering FREE social security number monitoring on credit reporting services. If they saw my ‘social’ appearing on credit report they will let me know — for free. I signed up and it was easy enough.

Today, for the first time, I got this e-mail.

I checked it. It was bona fide. An new account I had opened. So, it works. I am happy.

Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), Closed Above 1,000 For The FIRST Time, This Day, 47 Years Ago; November 14, 1970.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From “marketwatch.com”.


Click to ENLARGE and read here. Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dow_Jones_Industrial_Average


That Dow ‘1,000’ was way before my time — in terms of investing. I was all of 17 and did not have any investments — other than a car.

Wow. The Dow closed today at 23,409. Up 22,409 points in 47-years, though we sure had our up-and-downs.

I started investing around 1985. The Dow was still flirting around 1,000!

I have been continually invested since 1985, though the amount I had invested as fluctuated. What a ride it has been.

Dow ‘1,000’ for the first time. Next year we will have Dow ‘30,000’.

Fidelity MyVoice: Voice Recognition Login For Phone Interactions.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



It, i.e., enrollment in MyVoice, was easy and automatic — so to speak.

I had called to check on a tax issue! Yes, it is October and time to start thinking year-end-taxes. Right?

Once I entered my ‘passcode’ I was told that MyVoice was an option and I should ask the Fidelity Rep. about it.

After we talked taxes, I said I wanted to enroll in MyVoice.

He laughed and said “done”! I asked whether I have to say a phrase … NO! All conversations with Fidelity are recorded, independent of MyVoice. So, they have PLENTY of my voice recordings.

I haven’t TRIED it yet.

But, I gather, that when I next call in, all I will need to enter is my userID. Then when I start talking, ideally to a live Rep., the system will check my voice.

Neat. Cool.

Not that I call Fidelity that often. But, I like it.

“CarGurus” IPO, On October 12, 2017, Only Good For Those Lucky Enough To Have $16 IPO Shares.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and study. From “MarketWatch”.


I had read, prior to the open (on Thursday, October 12, 2017), that the IPO shares had been re-priced at $16 — higher than the original $15 ceiling.

Given what happened to the SWICH IPO last week, I didn’t even bother to check CARG during the day. I was kind of busy.

Well it appears that I didn’t miss much.

It opened at $29 which meant that there must have been a huge backlog of demand at the start. So a very nice 81% pop for those that had $16 shares. Wonder how many of them got a chance to sell.

But, the trend appears to have been a downward drift from the initial enthusiasm.

I will have to keep an eye on it.

“CarGurus”, The Car Buying/Selling Portal, Is Scheduled To Have An IPO ~October 12, 2017.

by Anura Guruge


Click image (which I think is NH) to access their Website/Portal.


Pretty decent introduction to IPO in “Xconomy.com”. Click image to access original.


They advertise heavily on Willow TV — on which I watch my daily cricket. Hence my familiarity with them. The ads and their message seems pretty compelling. I have yet to use them. No car buying plans in the near future (I hope).

Plus, I like their name! {Smile}

I then saw that they were up for an IPO — next week, the tentative date, next Thursday, October 12, 2017. The price is anticipated to be around $14 (i.e., same as Roku).

They are profitable and that might make them unusually attractive.

Fidelity is not offering any IPO shares. Damn (not that I would get any).

I am going to keep an eye on this IPO. This one could be v. interesting.
