What would TheStreet's columnists say on the Wall Street of Westeros?
In honor of Game of Thrones' final season kicking off this week, we adapted iconic quotes from to our cadre of columnists to envision a world where the market was within the Iron Bank. OK, the quotes are fictitious and don't really reflect the thoughts of writers mentioned, but Game of Thrones fans should read on anyway.
James "RevShark" DePorre
Tim Collins, Real Money Pro Options Columnist
"Options trading isn't a pit. Options are a ladder. Many traders try to trade it fail and never get to try again. The uncertainty breaks them. And some are given a chance to trade, but they refuse. They cling to their positions or the advisers they love. Only the ladder is real. Options is all there is."
Kevin Curran, Real Money Writer
"When enough companies make false promises, earnings calls stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better-misguided estimates."
Zev Fima, Research Analyst for Action Alerts PLUS
"That's what I do, I trade stocks and I know things."
Doug Kass, Real Money Pro Columnist
"An investment with no motive is an investment no one suspects. Always keep your FinTwit foes confused."
Eric Jhonsa, Real Money and TheStreet Tech Columnist
"Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Alphabet: They're all just stocks in the FAANG. This one's on top, then that one's on top, then on and on it spins. I'm not going to stop the FAANG. I'm going to break down news and analysis on the FAANG."
Bob Lang, Real Money Columnist, Co-Manager of Our Trifecta Stocks Model Portfolio
"It is a big and beautiful stock market. Most of us buy and sell the same stocks or funds they always do and never get to trade each sector. I don't want to be most of us."
Jeff Marks, Senior Portfolio Analyst for Action Alerts PLUS
"Nvidia was butchered after the Action Alerts PLUS club sold in October. But you refuse to recognize our call. You swore we pumped the stock in November, Twitter. But in our hour of great advice, you refuse to recognize our call. And even when the Action Alert PLUS team celebrated the wise decision, still, you refuse to recognize our call. But House Action Alert PLUS remembers. TheStreet remembers. We know no king but the king of TheStreet whose name is Cramer. I don't care if he's also on Mad Money. He's my king of the club."
Helene Meisler, Technical-Analysis Columnist for Real Money and Top Stocks
"Daily Sentiment is a curious thing... daily sentiment resides where traders believe it resides. It's a trick, a shadow on the wall. And, a very small trader can cast a very large shadow."
Robert Powell, Editor of TheStreet's Retirement Daily
"HOLD THE INVESTMENT. HOLD THE INVESTMENT. HOLD INVESTMENT. HOLDOR."
Chris Versace, Co-Manager of Our Trifecta Stocks and Stocks Under $10 Portfolios
"Market Volatility is dark and full of terrors."
Jacob Sonenshine, Reporter for TheStreet, ICYMI Newsletter
"You Know Nothing, S&P 500 Bulls."
