Price-to-Blecch Ratio

July 22, 2015

This seems like a day best fit for Mad Magazine-style descriptions of what we're about to see in the equity market.

Fitbit makes wearable fitness tracking devices, so, the little things that go on to your wrist while you’re in the middle of a 10K or doing some other fitness activity (it’s also waterproof, so maybe it even survives muddy obstacle courses). But it also stands as another way in which the United States embraces its extremes, i.e., those who eat copious servings of newfangled hamburgers, and those who run miles at a time to avoid looking like they eat those hamburgers (these are often the same people).
