What to do with Marmite?

I found a jar of Marmite in Stop & Shop today. Since I have never had it before, it was an impulse buy. What can I do with this British yeast extract?

Both Ryan and Pence are wearing the same suit and tie. Even their tie folds are EXACTLY the same. That is just eerily disturbing.

What to look forward to...

with Trump's elimination of both regulations and the EPA. It is an article about how utterly evil DuPont is and an example of what we should expect to become common place if the Trump administration gets its way:

My theory about the presser meltdown..

Trump is just going crazy so the media will stop looking into the russian connection and leaks. Everytime things turn bad for him, Trump just does something crazy so the media pays attention to that instead of the bad news.

Don't be fooled by this, and I hope the media doesn't fall for this.

What we all have to ask ourselves...

Why is the only thing that Trump hasn't changed one iota in the last few years is his support of Russia? His immegration plan, 'lock her up ', drain the swamp, etc have all been back tracked on by Trump. But, not his support of Putin and Russia -- that has been the only thing lying Don has been consistent on.

Just 14 stocks have created 20% of all stock market gains in dollars since 1924.

In what truly is one of the most amazing statistics to ever come across our desks here at 24/7 Wall St., we recently saw a chart that showed that just 14 stocks have created 20% of all stock market gains in dollars since 1924. That is a phenomenal figure, considering the sheer number of companies that have come and gone in that time, and the overall wealth created in the stock market in the past 93 years.

The chart, which was sourced from Bloomberg/Henrik Bessembinder through a Jefferies research piece, contains many companies that have been around for years, but also sports four tech companies, albeit one has been around since 1911.

In a remarkable and striking similarity, all the companies on the list are still incredibly relevant and are still outstanding investment ideas, depending on your risk tolerance.

Here are the 14 stocks that have created 20% of all the stock market gains since 1924. They are listed from the largest to the smallest in term of percentage of wealth creation, and we also included when they were started.

You can read the rest at:


The top 14 are:

1. Exxon Mobil Corp
2. Apple Inc
3. General Electric Co.
4. Microsoft Corp.
5. International Business Machines Corp.
6. Altria Inc.
7. General Motors Co.
8. Johnson & Johnson
9. Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
10. Procter & Gamble Co.
11. Chevron Inc.
12. Coca-Cola Co.
13. AT&T Inc.
14. Amazon.com Inc.
