Tonight's podcast resumes this series of podcasts after a rather long hiatus. I share a poem by e.e. cummings from a collection by Caroline Kennedy on her mother's favorite poems. I then discuss PetSmart (PETM), a stock that I do not currently have a position, yet a company that I have owned in the past and continue to admire for its financial results and for, I should add, my cat Rahmmy, who was Mickey when I adopted him at my local PetSmart in association with the Coulee Region Humane Society. But that is another subject entirely .
I spend a little time commenting on the current difficult environment we face in America and the world. And that is without even mentioning or discussing the horrible Deep Water Horizon spill in the Gulf Of Mexico which may well be the subject of another rant another evening!
You can follow my actual portfolio on Covestor, my blog on Seeking Alpha, or visit my home blog at http://bobsadviceforstocks.tripod.com/bobsadviceforstocks.

While agreeing that the internet is full of schemes and talking-up stocks, I point out that my blog is about information, investment philosophy, and that I share my own holdings with you through the blog and Covestor. I have indeed recently become involved with Covestor Investment Management (http://cv.im) but I continue with the same straight forward and documented discussions that have marked this blog since starting in 2003. Exercise caution whenever listening to anyone on the web, but not all is useless.

Owning this stock already in my trading portfolio, instead of joining the selling mob, I chose to add to my position in light of my own assessment that the news was far better than suggested by a Goldman Sachs analyst who dropped the rating on the stock while maintaining the price target. I explain my rationale and wait for trading to resume next week.
