October 2013 Round Rock Wealthbuilders Meetup

Economy continues to stagnate - WalMart overstocked as sales lag.  WalMart sales tells us a lot about the economy.  Home sales continue to decline, the government is at risk of a partial shutdown, and the Fed "taper" never happened.  Let's share views on 2013 Q4 outlooks.

    I also forgot to mention if TLM (Talisman Energy) can be discussed. Carl Icahn recently bought a 6% stake into it and anything he touches usually turns into gold, but in this case, it will be black gold.

    Thanks!

    Dan and David, Since SLB (Schlumberger) is talked up so much at almost every meetup, I'm wondering if you can talk about one of it's competitors FI (Frank's Intl). FI has been around for about 75 years but it's IPO was last month and it appears to have better profit margins than SLB. I believe FI has great long-term growth potential and would like to know your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    Presenters always do a great job in keeping abreast of world events and stocks. It is much appreciated that you can host the events every month free to attendees.
    Thank you very much

    There was only a few minutes of religion discussed. I barely noticed any talk of religion.

    I wasn't prepared for the amount of Bahai faith that was injected.
    Expected a more secular gathering.
    Probably won't return.

    There is no US employment or exports significant enough to taper the treasury bond & mortgage - backed securities purchases by the Fed, the rise in rates alone would suffocate the repayment attempt by US government on it's own, created massive debt load. In addition, low volume on the stock markets reveals a lack of consumer driven interest in equities, most of that buying is being done by institutions like banks & insurance co. 's THE VERY ENTITIES WE BAILED OUT IN 2008 ! now borrowing at zero interest rates to fund equities purchases, not lending to consumers!
    Japan & China have reduced their US debt funding to
    token levels while their central banks break records on physical gold purchases, why do rats desert a ship?
    Or maybe there really is something up Bernanke's sleeve, like a 2 weeks notice!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.

Bill, started New York City Gay Craft Beer Lovers
