(Update Friday: LADR is a BUY at $13.02)
We are watching Validus VR for a potential buy. The Company is in the insurance business and the stock has been crashing due to the hurricanes. BUT we will be buying when it hits bottom and starts to trend upward….which could be weeks in the future. The technical indicators are looking terrible but eventually we should be able to buy VR at a bargain basement price. Here is copy from their site:

The Making of the President. Roger Stone. The author is another of those politicos with a “history” and we did not really expect this book to be worth reading. Especially since Stone is a long time friend of Trump and it would be overly biased. But that is probably why the book is SO interesting. He knows everything there is to know about Trump. Get this book for a good read.
Speaking of books: The NYT has been rigging their best-seller list and it is finally becoming news. Read the full article at the link below.
Regnery, pointing to Nielsen BookScan’s figures, based on actual sales through major retailers, contends the Times is rigging its list, ranking D’Souza’s “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left” below books with half as many sales
Increasingly, it appears that the Times has gathered book sale data in a manner which prioritizes liberal-themed books over conservative books and authors. The net result has been a bestseller list that has increasingly become less relevant to the Regnery audience, and less reflective of which books are actually selling best in the country, regardless of one’s political persuasion.
