LII’ers, Just checking on the motivation level, given all the things going around in the market. I have not started studying yet and plan to hit the books starting Nov.1. To lighten up everyone’s mood, here is an apt description of all things market etc. New Terms for the 2008 market CEO --Chief Embezzlement Officer. CFO-- Corporate Fraud Officer. BULL MARKET – A random market movement causing an investor to mistake himself for a financial genius. BEAR MARKET – A 6 to 18 month period when the kids get no allowance, the wife gets no jewelry. VALUE INVESTING – The art of buying low and selling lower. P/E RATIO – The percentage of investors wetting their pants as the market keeps crashing. BROKER – What my broker has made me. STANDARD & POOR – Your life in a nutshell. STOCK ANALYST – Idiot who just downgraded your stock. STOCK SPLIT – When your ex-wife and her lawyer split your assets equally between themselves. FINANCIAL PLANNER – A guy whose phone has been disconnected. MARKET CORRECTION – The day after you buy stocks. CASH FLOW – The movement your money makes as it disappears down the toilet. YAHOO – What you yell after selling it to some poor sucker for $240 per share. WINDOWS – What you jump out of when you’re the sucker who bought Yahoo @ $240 per share. INSTITUTIONAL INVESTOR – Past year investor who’s now locked up in a nuthouse. PROFIT – An archaic word no longer in use.

^^all of the above
