For the most part, Wallstrip is a show about stocks at or near all-time highs. We do parodies and have covered what I think are loser investments (satellite radio) and broken trends (Whole Foods). I disclose my positions. No one else on staff evens owns stocks. If the market sucks for extended periods of time, stocks go down. Not complicated.
The fact that Dell would sponsor our laptop changes absolutely nothing right now. CBS does not whisper in my ear, I continue to pick the stocks and write the frameworks, Options Express actally listens to us (people seem to love the new ad and more are coming) and Dell is a new relationship. It’s a freaking laptop they want to promote.
Dell is not going to get written up by me as Wallstrip worthy…because it isn’t. I don’t think it goes to zero, it isn’t trending and it is not near all-time highs. They want to have product placement, that’s it.
Here are all the posts I have mentioned Dell…trust me, never positively in the current cycle . Does that make Dell traitors for advertising here? I don’t think so.
If you unsubscribe, you miss why I created the show. I trust adam, Jeff, Lindsay and Roman completely with ad placement. They know we want to take nothing away from the actual content and mission…find great stocks and start a conversation. Paying the bills to do so, is reality. Feedback is crucial, but a rant and an unsubscribe…good riddance.
