Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (Wiley Investment Classics)

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (Wiley Investment Classics)

"Although Reminiscences...was first published some seventy years ago, its take on crowd psychology and market timing is a s timely as last summer's frenzy on the foreign exchange markets."
—Worth magazine
"The most entertaining book written on investing is Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, by Edwin Lefevre, first published in 1923."
—The Seattle Times
"After twenty years and many re-reads, Reminiscences is still one of my all-time favorites."
—Kenneth L. Fisher, Forbes
"A must-read classic for all investors, whether brand-new or experienced."
—William O'Neil, founder and Chairman, Investor's Business Daily
"Whilst stock market tomes have come and gone, this remains popular and in print eighty years on."
—GQ magazine
First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever. Generations of readers have found that it has more to teach them about markets and people than years of experience. This is a timeless tale that will enrich your life—and your portfolio.

Stock investing is a relatively recent phenomenon and the inventory of true classics is somewhat slim. When asked, people in the know will always list books by Benjamin Graham, Burton G. Malkiel's A Random Walk Down Wall Street, and Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits and Other Writings by Philip A. Fisher. You'll know you're getting really good advice if they also mention Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefevre.
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the thinly disguised biography of Jesse Livermore, a remarkable character who first started speculating in New England bucket shops at the turn of the century. Livermore, who was banned from these shady operations because of his winning ways, soon moved to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. What makes this book so valuable are the observations that Lefevre records about investing, speculating, and the nature of the market itself. For example:
"It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight! It is no trick at all to be right on the market. You always find lots of early bulls in bull markets and early bears in bear markets. I've known many men who were right at exactly the right time, and began buying or selling stocks when prices were at the very level which should show the greatest profit. And their experience invariably matched mine--that is, they made no real money out of it. Men who can both be right and sit tight are uncommon."
If you've ever spent weekends and nights puzzling over whether to buy, sell, or hold a position in whatever investment--be it stock, bonds, or pork bellies, you'll be glad that you read this book. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is full of lessons that are as relevant today as they were in 1923 when the book was first published. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards

Bristol Freighter

Bristol Freighter

Circa 1988/89 and taken with my Nikon F301 SLR - scanned 2010.

Introduced in 1946, the Bristol Type 170 Freighter was designed originally as a rugged, heavy-duty transport to operate from unimproved airstrips. As it appears, it's 'good', solid, 1940s British engineering, not pretty, but a classic aircraft that served its purpose well, and operated in many countries throughout the World.

Bristol freighter Mk 31M G-BISU, seen here,(c/n 13218) was operated by Instone Airlines at Stansted, Essex, UK, for a number of years. This was an ex-RNZAF aircraft and left Ardmore (Auckland) on 2 March 1981 for its 86-hour ferry flight to the UK. It subsequently flew its first charter flight on 3 August 1981 delivering two racehorses to Deauville. This role of flying livestock was to take up half a year while other work included carriage of oil drilling machinery, car parts, newspapers and mail.

See here on the northside at Exeter Airport, on a dull overcast day day, this aircraft very occasionally flew some Royal Mail night flights out of Exeter. Usually it was leased in by a regular operator whose aircraft may have been delayed elsewhere; grounded due to a technical problem; or as an extra aircraft during the build up to Christmas.

One night / early morning whilst working in A.T.C. - night shift usually ended at 2.30/3.00am when the last mail flight landed, we were waiting for this aircraft to come in. From memory it was called in to bring an inbound mail load, as the regular aircraft had developed at fault and could not fly back to Exeter. The Royal Mail called Instone and 'scrambled' their Freighter. We knew that it was going to be a longer than normal night. as speed was not an asset that the Freighter possessed - maybe around 180-200mph in the cruise tops. Eventually, at around 4.00am it was on RADAR and inbound. These aircraft were also not noted for being quiet due to their two 1,980hp Bristol Hercules 14-cylinder sleeve-valve radial engines. We could practically hear it coming, the pre-dawn quiet being shattered by a 'wall of sound' - slow, but LOUD!!! Even on the ground, the engines 'barked' and 'crackled' echoing all around the neighbourhood.

Unfortunately, the aircraft had to depart, so at around 5.00am, the airport environs were subjected to this mighty beast firing up, and then full power for take off. Beats any Dawn chorus, but not good for the neighbours. Night-shift ended at around 5.30am more or less when the morning shift started. Apparently, this aircraft went to Canada, but was written off in 1996 during a take-off accident. Some survive in various places as museum pieces. As the saying goes, "They don't build 'em like that anymore."

Peanut Butter & Co. Peanut Butter, Smooth Operator, 16-Ounce Jars (Pack of 6)

Our great-tasting all-natural peanut butter just got even better! We've reformulated Smooth Operator so that it is now in the No-Stir Natural style. We've added a little bit of palm fruit oil (containing zero cholesterol and zero Trans fats) to keep the peanut oil from separating. This means no more stirring the oil back in! Made of peanuts, a little bit of salt, and a little but of cane juice for sweetness, this delicious no-stir version brings you closer to the peanut butter of your childhood without the high fructose corn syrup and the hydrogenated oil.
