People say, ‘I love ‘Snatch,’ I love ‘Lock Stock,’ but I want to be more than a movie name. I’d love to be more of a household name.
I used to go to Vegas and play the horses, and then I realised how ridiculous that was. There is no winning in gambling, but there is on the stock market.

Britain’s FTSE 100 stock index has not just recovered from its post-vote low close below 6,000. It has surged to close at nearly 6,600. That’s its highest closing value yet of 2016, and within reach of its all-time highs.

A lot of the kids we have coming up through our ranks now have been in stock cars since they were 12 or 13 years old. It’s much different. I think you have to pick a path. If you want to race open-wheel cars and do those things, it’s probably going to be carts and into an open-wheel series.
I was asked to do an ad campaign for a supermarket once. I was baffled. It’s strange when you realise your popularity or reputation is a marketable commodity; it’s a stock, a currency.

A default on our debts as a result of not meeting our obligations would be a disaster for the stock market, and Americans would see their retirement funds shrivel up.
I have kind of a weird technique with zucchini. I cut it into small cubes; sweat it in olive oil, adding just a little oil at time so it crisps.

China frequently confounds stock market prognosticators because it has a penchant for straying markedly from other broad global indexes year-by-year over the decades – even from emerging markets. It’s hit or miss.

We invite American companies looking to raise capital to list on the Bahrain Stock Exchange. The region has a liquidity oversupply approximating $1 trillion and this pool of capital can be tapped into by creative American companies. The next Facebook may very well get funded on the BSE.

I’m dubious about having Social Security put into the stock market. I think that we have gotten very far away from the idea that there’s something sacrosanct about retirement investments.

I was a stock broker once. I think there is an absolute place for market investments. But they should never be the basis of one’s retirement. They should be an additional piece on top of a basic, secure, guaranteed retirement benefit.

I make some of my best recipes with a simple homemade stock. Keep shrimp shells stored in a plastic bag in the freezer. When you have almost a gallon-bag full, you can make a stock in 30 minutes that you can use in soups and sauces. You can then freeze the stock in ice-cube trays.

I worked on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange back when they used to write tickets. And I was just a runner. So a guy would write a ticket and I would run it, and it was endless. That was a hard job. And I dug tungsten… for a coal company in Wyoming one summer, and that was pretty miserable.
I don’t know if I owned a toothbrush until I was 19, maybe. I didn’t come from stock that placed any importance on the toothbrush. But a couple of girls I met changed that. And I would do anything to get a girl to pay attention to me long enough that I could feel good about myself.

When my book ‘Rich Dad’s Prophecy’ was released in 2002, most financial newspapers and magazines trashed it because I discussed a looming stock market crash.
At first, the only thing that I learned was to save. Then I learned about mutual fund, then later on direct stock investments. I also went into small businesses and even real estate.
We don’t really look at the stock, you know? Because for us, it’s about the long term. And so we’re very much focused on long-term shareholder value but not the short-term kind of stuff.
It was the early 1970s and I was recently divorced. I had three kids and was totally broke. I managed to find work back east on the straw-hat circuit – summer stock – but couldn’t afford hotels, so I lived out of the back of my truck, under a hard shell.

We think that in Mexico, online trading of shares and financial instruments is not going to be as important as it is in the U.S. On days that there is a banking holiday in the U.S., you hardly see any movement here on the stock exchange.
North Korea’s whole idea is to create a crisis to solve a crisis. They’re so poor and they’re so desperate that they realize that this bombastic rhetoric can drive the South Korean stock market down and get the U.S. in a tizzy. And it’s a game they’ve been playing for many, many years.
Big money is made in the stock market by being on the right side of the major moves. The idea is to get in harmony with the market. It’s suicidal to fight trends. They have a higher probability of continuing than not.
The vast majority of companies don’t go public and mint dozens of millionaires. And most companies don’t go around doling out stock options; private companies tend to be very tight about ownership.
I had a couple of million dollars’ worth of… stock once. And now it’s not worth much more than wallpaper. I guess I just wasn’t born to be rich.

When the Atlanta Braves were owned by Ted Turner, he was very passionate and did whatever it took to do something good – and eventually he made money. Labels used to be the same way. Now they’re corporations, and it’s only about their stock.
I think any statement about stock prices is always suspect unless it’s made by Warren Buffett.
I was about thirteen when I started thinking about the stock market. My dad helped me a little bit. I’d see it in the ‘Santa Barbara News-Press.’ These prices would change every day – what was that all about?
What’s true for churches is true for other institutions: the older and more organized they get, the less adaptable they become. That’s why the most resilient things in our world – biological life, stock markets, the Internet – are loosely organized.
I rely on my iPad for on-the-go entertainment. I stock it with TV shows, like ‘Parks and Recreation’ and the British version of ‘The Office.’ I’m reading a Charles Manson biography on it too, since I’m weirdly into true crime.
If you want to make short-term profits from the stock price, then I am a very bad president. But I don’t think I’m so bad for maximizing the long-term value of Nintendo.

The studio system reminds me of the stock market.
It is indeed true that the stock market can forecast the business cycle.
When the weather changes, nobody believes the laws of physics have changed. Similarly, I don’t believe that when the stock market goes into terrible gyrations its rules have changed.
Software-industry battles are fought by highly paid and out-of-shape nerds furiously pounding computer keyboards while they guzzle diet Coke. The stakes aren’t very dramatic. Life? Liberty? The pursuit of happiness? Nope, it’s about stock options.
Jayne Houdyshell and I – when I was 17 years old – did summer stock together at the Timber Lake Playhouse in Mt. Carroll, IL. She was the leading lady of the company, and I was an intern.

In financial services, the front end of the world operates at super-high speeds: comparative advantages are measured in fractions of nanoseconds. And yet back end processes – the amount of time you have to wait when you sell a stock before cash hits your account – can take days.
What indexing does is neutralize a large part of the stock market. There’s no trading in those stocks, or almost none.
It’s just not good to put stock in a Hollywood celebrity.
Long before the thousand millions are here, the mighty centrifugal tendency, inherent in this stock and strengthened in the United States, will assert itself.
I think there’s a suspicion in the South of people putting on airs. You see it in most successful Southern politicians, but you also see it in someone like Richard Petty, who may be a multimillionaire stock car driver, but he’s also beloved because he has a nice self-deprecatory way about him.
An interesting thing happened in 1989, right as I was graduating: the stock market crashed and really changed the landscape of the art world in New York. It made the kind of work I was doing interesting to galleries that wouldn’t have normally been interested in it.
For most of Wall Street’s history, stock trading was fairly straightforward: buyers and sellers gathered on exchange floors and dickered until they struck a deal.
Bloomberg does not cater to the Indian audience. It does display Indian stock indices, and during trading hours has a ticker tape of Indian stocks running across the bottom, but then so do most of the news channels.

There was the usual summer stock, the New England tours and then I started doing all kinds of roles for CBS after moving to California.
In taking stock of ourselves, we should not forget that fear plays a large part in the drama of failure. That is the first thing to be dropped. Fear is a mental deficiency susceptible of correction, if taken in hand before it gains an ascendency over us. Fear comes with the thought of failure.
When I was in the private sector, one characteristic that differentiated the best entrepreneurs from the others was that they were not in it for the stock options, but for a mission – to deliver something that was helpful… Every entrepreneurial journey, it turns out, is like this.

Loads of players love the stock markets. For me, it’s fashion.
Even from the very beginning, I didn’t put any money in the stock market.

To sidestep any biases I might have, I use the objective lens of the stock market to discover which policies actually delivered prosperity to emerging markets.
The blockchain concept was pioneered within the context of crypto-currency Bitcoin, but engineers have imagined many other ways for distributed ledger technology to streamline the world. Stock exchanges and big banks, for example, are looking at blockchain-type systems as trading settlement platforms.

I don’t know anything about a stock!
I’m not against government involvement in times of need. I am for recognizing that big public companies will continue to cut jobs in an effort to prop up stock prices, which in turn stimulates the need for more government involvement.

Not having sub-governance would be like anyone who owns USD being able to walk into a Google shareholder meeting and voting without owning Google stock just because Google shares happen to be denominated in USD.

I’m a casual F1 racing fan. I’m probably more of a stock car, NASCAR guy.
I have always considered myself a very resilient person, I come from very down-to-earth Northern stock, pragmatic by nature and with that bounce-back-ability.
When you have a good stock, you can make a good soup.

I envision a day when a businesswoman will be having lunch, and then her phone will ring. When she opens it up, she will see an image of the latest Marc Jacobs coat that just arrived in stock.

I’m from durable stock. I’m made to work. I’m Irish.
The film industry has always been unpredictable! It is like the stock market really.
I invested in many companies, and I’m happy this one worked. This is capitalism. You invest in stock, it goes up, it goes down. You know, if you don’t like capitalism, you don’t like making money with stock, move to Cuba or China.
We don’t want A.I. to engage in cyberbullying, stock manipulation, or terrorist threats; we don’t want the F.B.I. to release A.I. systems that entrap people into committing crimes. We don’t want autonomous vehicles that drive through red lights, or worse, A.I. weapons that violate international treaties.
You can demonize Goldman Sachs all you want, and I’m sure there are reasons to do it. But the real pressure is all of us pressuring the companies for stock returns, and that leads to all kinds of decisions.
Most of the time, economic data is fairly benign. I don’t wish to imply it is meaningless, but it is not a driver of stock markets. Indeed, the correlation between economic noise and how equity markets perform has been wildly overemphasized.
I found the stock market very intriguing because prices used to fluctuate, I used to wonder why the price fluctuates.
In my community of minimalists, there are really wealthy people who work at stock brokerage firms, there are people who are unemployed, but it doesn’t seem to matter. We’re all really good friends, and we get along really well. It’s a very varied and diverse community.
I come from a long line of below-stairs maids and gardeners. Good ol’ peasant stock. My mother and her sister made a quantum leap out of that life. Then I made another quantum leap.

The robust benefits of employee stock ownership plans are hard to beat.
As a business man running a huge enterprise, it wouldn’t be smart for me to discuss my potential business decisions with a journalistic tabloid. That being said, I certainly aim to make waves in the wrestling world, and continue to raise Villain Enterprises stock through the roof.

I know that I don’t look like a footballer but I’ve always enjoyed working out and I’ve always been bigger than most people out there. I come from big stock. If you see my brothers and me together, we look like a wrestling tag team trio.

I refuse to believe that trading recipes is silly. Tuna Fish casserole is at least as real as corporate stock.

Buying only what you know can end in disaster. Just think about Enron’s employees and business partners, the ‘locals’ who bought lots of its stock because they thought they were in the know.
Whenever, then, the usual and ordinary rate of the profits of agricultural stock, and all the outgoings belonging to the cultivation of land, are together equal to the value of the whole produce, there can be no rent.

I opened up Shutterstock to the whole world. I created a contributor community that anyone could give stock photography a shot.
When I became CEO of Xerox 10 years ago, the company’s situation was dire. Debt was mounting, the stock sinking and bankers were calling. People urged me to declare bankruptcy, but I felt personally responsible for tens of thousands of employees.
I tried paying at a restaurant with stock options. It didn’t work.
I helped start a ceramics company called CPS Technologies. We took it public in 1987 at $12 a share. Three months later, there was this horrible cliff: Black Monday.

A lot of the money in the stock market is really our national retirement plan, for better or worse.
Every portfolio benefits from bonds; they provide a cushion when the stock market hits a rough patch. But avoiding stocks completely could mean your investment won’t grow any faster than the rate of inflation.

I had seen ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ and I thought that was a different kind of film than I’d seen before, with that kind of editing and slick camera movements.

If a company’s stock is undervalued – as many managers believe theirs is – a repurchase may offer the best payoff of all.
I have never owned a share of stock in my life, and the only time I’ve double dipped into anything is at the snack tray.

A lot of the people of the Midwest came from the Northeast. We’re of the same stock. Yet something must have happened when we crossed the Ohio River Valley because I have sensed that there’s more of an openness and flexibility of spirit out West.
The great thing about having money is that you can actually just get on with your life and not have to think about paying the bills or crouch over ‘The Wall Street Journal’ or the ‘Financial Times’ and look at the stock figures and things like that. That bores me rigid.

I wish I owned stock in Nicorette. I love Nicorette. Best invention ever.
In the world I’ve known most of my life, old stories quickly lose their power over capital markets and get replaced by new surprises. That which everyone fixates on gets priced into the stock market quickly and can’t drag on.
If a business does well, the stock eventually follows.
Some people, no matter how robust their stock portfolios or how healthy their children, are always mentally preparing for doom. They are just born worriers, their brains forever anticipating the dropping of some dreaded other shoe.
