Saturday is Sterg's birthday. He wants to go to the ripper's. I am a little hesitant and anxious about the outing. You see, I haven't had any meaningful, female social interaction for the better part of a month now. I am afraid once I catch a glimpse of a dancer's cooter all hell might break lose. I may lose what little common sense I have and start busting out the credit cards and start spouting off bullshit and whatever line I can use to attract the interest of a fine female "companion" (when we all know the best line is " I gots money, bitch").
Yesterday I had to sell TRE. Watching its price drift aimlesly everyday, after the failed takeover, was like getting ass-raped by with someone wearing a fibreglass condom. With the sale, a complete lack of judgement took over and I bought 550 shares of TBC at 2.64. The only reason I bought it was because I wanted to see if I was the unluckiest motherfucker on the planet. TBC has had a pretty good ride the past month. I wanted to see if me buying the stock put a damper on its rise. This is not a long term hold.
Next week I signed up for a service where I do not have to pay full price for my trades. Starting monday I may shift where some of my money is. I may sell the TBC once it shows signs of weakness and pick up BVF. They just announced they dramatically increased their dividend and will pay a yield of over 6% a year. I may also pick up some BCE. 2007 forecast sounded better than expected and price has dipped to a level where their yield is now at 5%.
