After the Bell 9/19/11: Reno Air Show, Batman's Birthday, Greece Woes, and More

Welcome to After the Bell for September 19th 2011. We have quite a lot to discuss today, so let’s step into things right now. Well not as much as I thought. Let’s have some brief musings on the Emmys, Obama’s latest plans, Greece economic woes, the Reno air show, and more. All of the news after the school bell rings on September 19th 2011.

The Emmy awards were last night. A lot of people won awards. Some were deserved. Some were not deserved. Some people cared. Others did not care. It was there. It was just one of those shows for sure.

Happy birthday to Adam West, television’s first Batman today. A huge fan of the Adam West Show, don’t believe the haters. Granted it was corny, but it was the 1960s and it was good fun. Batman doesn’t have to be grim and dark serious business all of the time after time. In fact, if he’s too serious, it can fall flat.

Barack Obama is planning on a tax hike for the rich. Something tells me this won’t go over too well for some reason. We’ll just have to wait and see to tell you the truth. I don’t believe words from you anymore, Obama, I’m waiting to see what actions you’ll take.

Netflix stock continues to take a bit of a beating. As does the stock market in general. After last week’s steady week, the stock market is taking a bit of a downward plunge. The stock market just seems to be like that roller coaster. We can’t just quite shake it off to say the very least.

So as I said, the stock market is down, Dow Jones and the NASDAQ for September 19th 2011. No doubt nothing that those who know the game are not prepared for.

Looking at the news, Greece isn’t looking too good. The entire country of Greece is about ready to be bankrupt. That is rather harsh. The creditors are closing in. Not good times for a lot of people in the world.

Last Friday, there was a tragedy at the air show in Reno Nevada. Current death toll in the Reno air show has been bumped up to at least ten. It is rather sad no matter whatever way you slice it. A grisly set of circumstances any way you look at it.

That be After the Bell today. Hopefully you all survived your Mondays whether you’d be in school or not. And remember, once you get past today, it should be relatively smooth sailing from here on out. Have a good day and I’ll talk to again with hopefully some more news.
