Yup, lame headline. Been a bad year for the CLI portfolio. Maybe this one will pull it out.

I wanted to find a way to invest in Uber and ran across an article recommending Medallion Financial Corp. (TAXI)  as a space play, so I bought.

I know they say you shouldn’t time the market, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wait until the timing is right to buy for a hold, right? Right?

I used to pay Huntington, though not now. Still, they were one of the few I did not curse with every payment. Investor Place gives them a thumbs up for a cheap stock, and I will think about jumping in with the next dip.

Read about Companhia Energ (CIG)  on Investor Place today. Like most of the tips I find there, the stock is already in an up-swing. If it dips back down to $6, I’ll join the ride. At the current $8.15 I still think it is a 50/50 bet.

Thing is, sometimes it will drop lower after the initial buy back surge, and if FBHS does that, I may just get some.
