Talking To My Japanese Sales Guy

by Mr Juggles

Mr Juggles: “What do you think about X stock?”
JP Sales: “Oh, I am so sorry. We lost our internet analyst. He’s in bed.”

Mr Juggles: “What do you think about X stock?”
[Mr Juggles hears a bunch of typing, as in typing on a Bloomberg]
JP Sales: “It seems to be hitting the bottom now.”
Mr Juggles: “You’re just looking at the share price on your Bloomberg.”
JP Sales: “Yes, that’s true.”

Recommendation: Don’t talk to your Japanese SalesGuy(s) too often.

    I had a similar experience with a swiss company trying to sell me some kind of private placement:

    Sales Guy: This company is great.
    HF: Can I see the financials?
    Sales Guy: Unfortunatelly they are confidential.
    HF: So how can I now if the company is good or bad? How can I invest in such a company?
    Sales Guy: You only have to buy now and sell when I tell you to.
