EPIC!!! Securities Industry Commentator from Bill Singer Esq

December 10, 2020

A NOTE FROM BILL SINGER: Today's Securities Industry Commentator is sooooo epic, soooooo lengthy, soooooo fabulous, that we're also publishing it here at the BrokeAndBroker.com Blog. Omigod, you should get yourself a huge mug of hot coffee and a box of donuts, but don't tell your spouse that you want to eat the entire dozen,  maybe eat like 6 -- no 8 -- of them, and then wrap the other 4 in aluminum foil, and then claim that you only bought 4 and want to share them with your beloved. Not that I would ever do anything like that. Perish the thought. Hmmm, donuts!
