I’ve had a stressful week. On Monday, the Dow dropped 634 points, and I lost a lot of dough. Investors were concerned about the stalling economy, the New York Times explained.
I owned a million shares of Sara Lee, which I’d bought recently because nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee. By Monday evening I was liking it less. It had dropped $1.36 a share. I’m no math whiz, but my Google calculator told me this was $1.36 million! I don’t believe in overreacting, but I’m not going to be the last one off the boat, either—so I dumped the whole million shares. People shouldn’t be eating that stuff, anyway, although the New York Style Cheesecakes are very good.
