Why I’m A Nerd

13 September 2010 11 Comments

Decided last night to print out the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) Annual Report for 2010 and give it a read.  At just over 50 pages, it took a little bit, but it was very interesting.  Typical Sunday evening for a 20-something, no?  If you’re into investing, you should definitely give your favorite company’s annual report a read.  I own some WMT stock, but am considering allocating a chunk of money I’ve saved up into the stock, so I decided to do some extra reading before doing so.  Wal-Mart is an incredible company, and best of all, while income has been moving higher every year, their stock has gone nowhere for 10 years.  I’ll have more on Wal-Mart here soon.

    Before I buy a stock I’ve read the last 3 annual reports, spent time clarifying questions that came up from the annual reports, spent intimite time with the balance sheet, along with time spent on message boards looking at opinions of other investors, among other things. Easily 15 hours of research are put into each POTENTIAL position.

    I guess what I’m saying is that I think your research is lacking.

    Probably the favorite set-ups in the UK these days, the Three Facet Victorian Style conservatory is lush in its simplistic ambience. The conservatory is three faceted, which refers to the standard essence of the conservatory.

    A lot of what you say happens to be supprisingly legitimate and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. Nonetheless there is one particular issue I am not really too comfy with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual core idea of the point, let me observe exactly what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.

    Most of the time I don’t post comments on blogs, but I’d like to say that this article really forced me to do so. Thanks!

    Together with the whole thing that appears to be developing inside this particular subject material, all your perspectives tend to be quite exciting. Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, but I do not give credence to your entire strategy, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to everyone that your opinions are actually not totally rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not even wholly convinced of the argument. In any event I did appreciate examining it.

    I needed a bag that is useful and still looks man-ly. It has plenty of pockets and room inside for plenty of things. The Olive color is cool, looks like a military pouch.
