At first, I thought that the stock would get a big boost from Google and Mozilla both screwing up user experience with sites that are not using HTTPS (at which point this blog will lose its reader). Then, Google gets in a huff about Symantec issuing certs for Google.com (understandably). So, if Google is going into the certificate business, that is another boon for the stock I should have bought at IPO and should have bought more of during the greatest recent depression (some call it a recession, but I found it really depressing, so sticking with my term).

So I’m watching and thinking and waiting now…

Really good pitch at the Motley Fool for SDRL which I started researching due to its ranking on the High Yield list.
