 FedEx Charts and Price Quote
Disclosure:  I am long FDX.  Also, FDX was one of the core stocks that I started my newsletter Explore Portfolio with on September 1998 when it was only $22.50.   My belief back then that continues today is FedEx will benefit greatly from people and businesses ordering goods on the internet.

Fear & Greed Index Plunged to 8 Recovers to 11

CNNMoney has a sentiment index called the "Fear & Greed Index."   Here is a snapshot of the index for today.

Fear and Greed now down to 11!

This index is a summation of seven indicators explained in detail here
  1. Stock Price Momentum: The S&P 500 versus its 125-day moving average
  2. Stock Price Strength: The number of stocks hitting 52-week highs and lows on the New York Stock Exchange
  3. Stock Price Breadth: The volume of shares trading in stocks on the rise versus those declining.
  4. Put and Call Options: The put/call ratio, which compares the trading volume of bullish call options relative to the trading volume of bearish put options
  5. Junk Bond Demand: The spread between yields on investment grade bonds and junk bonds
  6. Market Volatility: The VIX, which measures volatility
  7. Safe Haven Demand: The difference in returns for stocks versus Treasuries
"For each indicator, we look at how far they've veered from their average relative to how far they normally veer. We look at each on a scale from 0 - 100. The higher the reading, the greedier investors are being, and 50 is neutral.

Then we put all the indicators together - equally weighted - for a final index reading."

Wow! We got here fast!

Los Altos Home Prices for August 2014

The median single-family home price for Los Altos California as of August 2014 is $2,250,000 a gain of 2% over August 2013 when it was $2,204,000.

The average Los Altos home sold for 5.7% above the asking price!

Located between Apple, Google, Facebook and Tesla and just a short drive to Stanford University, Los Altos is central to many of today's growing companies that turned founders and employees into recent millionaires.  With some of the top schools in the country, Los Altos is a prime target for young tech titans looking to diversify their stock holdings and settle down to raise a family or just live in a town with a low crime rate and larger lots for the money when compared to Palo Alto on its Northern border.

Disclosure:  In June of this year, 2014, I added 10,000 shares of GGLR at $0.0081 to my ROTH IRA.   On December 31, 2013, as a year-end tax loss selling play, I added 10,000 shares of GGLR to my regular trading IRA at $0.0094.  Those two buys significantly increased my holdings of this penny stock.  I've personally made a lot of money with over the years buying when dirt cheap then watching what the insiders do to get an idea when to take big profits out.  I also cover GGLR in my newsletter where the shares I hold are well into "house money" from selling the ups and down.
