    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

That was quick. Usually lasts a year or more. :)

Something is up here, this market is very strange acting right now. Am safe in port and staying that way.

The Winners of the New World By Jim Cramer 02/29/00 - 09:42 AM EST

You want winners? You want me to put my Cramer Berkowitz hedge fund hat on and just discuss what my fund is buying today to try to make money tomorrow and the next day and the next? You want my top 10 stocks for who is going to make it in the New World? You know what? I am going to give them to you. Right here. Right now. OK. Here goes. Write them down -- no handouts here!:


724 Solutions (SVNX), Ariba (ARBA_), Digital Island (ISLD), Exodus (EXDS), InfoSpace.com (INSP_), Inktomi (INKT), Mercury Interactive (MERQ), Sonera (SNRA), VeriSign (VRSN_) and Veritas Software (VRTS_).


We are buying some of every one of these this morning as I give this speech. We buy them every day, particularly if they are down, which, no surprise given what they do, is very rare. And we will keep doing so until this period is over -- and it is very far from ending. Heck, people are just learning these stories on Wall Street, and the more they come to learn, the more they love and own! Most of these companies don't even have earnings per share, so we won't have to be constrained by that methodology for quarters to come.

Q:  Does this mean that Project Playlist is fucked?

A:  Yes, Bob, we were dead after MySpace and FaceBook killed us.

Q:  Why?  We're just as good as Pandora.

A:  Exactly, Bob.

I feel your pain greatly.  Try more HL at 6.88, if it gets there.

Edit:  ok, 6.50

Read somewhere that Facebook lost 6 million users in America last month.

They had their chance to go IPO and let it pass by.

LinkedIn at least saw the window of opportunity closing and went for it.  Start buying puts or just short that baby, it's going to fall fast and hard.

Groupon?  Idiots should have taken the Google buyout offer.  Them turning it down reminds me of Yahoo! turning down Microsoft's buyout offer.  D'oh!

I remember the 1st dot com bubble burst....it wasn't that damn bad!

I actually enjoyed a decade's worth of eating Top Ramen, peanut butter and crackers, and spam sandwiches....while living in a tent in the mountains.

It builds character....and promotes the hoarding of precious metals.

Look at me now....I'm hoping to sign papers and close on Ted Kaczynski's old cabin anyday now.

Keep gamblin' "Bits-sez"....and you'll get yours as well (Party like it's 1999!)

I love this post. Out of nowhere the US capital class suddenly recognises its been shitting around about its holy of holies once again : the high tech sector, once again in levitation.

Surprising that nobody saw this coming in USA. It was reported last week after around two weeks prior earlier, in french press. We are all selective in our view of things and subject to our own value systems.  

Love to hear comments on this from the experts of hi-tech. What have the Rating companies been doing in their sectorial analyses?

Well those rating companies do so much more than "fluffing" the greeks wouldn't you say..I love this selective vision of global capitalism...Lets hear your fluff on that.

"Stuffing" is more appropriate. DEEP and painful. But fluffing will have to do I guess in the US.
