I wish that we could always say

About the money that we borrow;

The secure investment of today

Is not the tax loss of tomorrow.

 

Wall Street is a thoroughfare that begins in a graveyard and ends in a river.

ANON

 

The stock market has called nine of the last five recessions.

PAUL A. SAMUELSON

 

 

Let Wall Street have a nightmare and the whole country has to help get them back in bed again.

WILL ROGERS

 

Wall Street is a place where the day begins with good buys.

LEOPOLD FECHTNER

 

There are old traders around and bold traders around, but there are no old, bold traders around.

BOB DINDA

 

The suckers haven’t permanently deserted the stock market. They are merely waiting until the prices get too high again.                                                                                                                  ANON

 

A man is robbed on the Stock Exchange, just as he is killed in a war, by people whom he never sees.

ALFRED CAPUS

 

The stock market has spoiled more appetites than bad cooking.

WILL ROGERS

 

There is a way  to make a lot of money in the market; unfortunately it is the same way to lose a lot of money in the market.

PETER PASSEL & LEONARD ROSE

 

In Wall Street the only thing that’s hard to explain is --- next week.

LOUIS RUKEYSER

 

Wall Street is where prophets tell us what will happen and profits tell us what did happen.     ROBERT ORBEN

 

Q: Why is the Stock market like an oven?

A: They can both be self-cleaning.                                                                           ANON

 

It is wise to remember that too much success in the stock market is in itself an excellent warning.   

                                                                                                  GERALD M. LOEB

 

He made a killing in the Stock Market and shot his broker.

ANON

 

Wall Street lays an egg.                                                                                           Variety

 

Men have been swindled by other men on many occasions. The Autumn of 1929 was perhaps the first occasion when men succeeded on a large scale in swindling themselves.                  

                                                                               JOHN KENNETH GALBRAITH

 

Artificial inflation of stocks must be considered a crime as serious as counterfeiting, which it closely resembles.                                                                                        ANDREW MAUROIS

 

There is no more mean, stupid, pitiful, selfish, envious, ungrateful animal than stock speculating public. It is the greatest of cowards, for it is afraid of itself.

WILLIAM HAZLITT

 

There is nothing like the ticker tape except a woman --nothing that promises hour after hour, day after day, such sudden developments, nothing that disappoints so often or  occasionally fulfills with such unbelievable passionate magnificence.

WALTER KNOWLETON GUTMAN

 

The stock market is only distantly related to economics. It’s a function of greed, apprehension, and panic, all superimposed on the business cycle.

RAYMOND F. De VOE

 

The stock market is but a mirror which, perhaps as in this instance, somewhat belatedly, provides an image of the underlying fundamental economic situation. Cause and effect run from the economy to the stock market, never the reverse. In 1929, the economy was headed for trouble. Eventually that trouble was violently reflected in Wall Street.                                                      JOHN KENETH GALBRAITH

 

Buying and selling securities on the Stock Exchange do not start new industries. Big business never starts anything new. It merely absorbs, consolidates and profits at the expense of others.

FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT

 

The responsibility for … soaring “ups” and crashing “downs” belong not to the Stock Exchange as such, because, after all, that institution is essentially a market, and all that those charged with its administration can do is see to it that the goods dealt in are properly labeled, that no face or otherwise objectionable goods are admitted, and that dealings are conducted honestly and with due and watchfully enforced lifeguards for the public.                                                                                                                                    

                                                                                                            OTTO KAHN

  

Stockbroking

 

Blood pressure and the price

Of your stock selections

Will move, to be precise,

In opposite directions.

 

Fortunes are made by buying low and selling too soon.

BARON ROTHSCHILD

 

A broker is a man on the right end of the telephone.

GERALD F. LIEBERMAN

 

Buy on the rumor: sell on the news.

WALL STREET SAYING

 

I have one client who is neither a bull nor a bear--he’s a chicken.

ANON

 

Select stock the way porcupines make love--very carefully.

ROBERT DINDA

 

I told my broker that as long as he doesn’t tell me where my money should go, I won’t tell him where he should go.                                                                                                 LEOPOLD FECHTNER

 

Don’t go broke, go public.

WALL STREET SAYING

 

Don’t gamble: buy some good stock, hold it till it goes up and then sell it--if it doesn’t go up, don’t buy it!

WILL ROGERS

 

If you hear that “everybody” is buying a certain stock, ask who is selling.

JAMES DINES

 

 

With my luck, if I ever invested in General Motors, they’d bust it to Corporal!

ROBERT ORBEN

They call him “Broker” because after you deal with him you are.

ANON

 

Never follow the crowd.                                                                   BERNARD BARUCH

 

 

With an evening  coat and a white tie, even a stockbroker can gain a reputation for being civilized.

OSCAR WILDE

 

 

Last week is the time you should have either bought or sold, depending on which you didn’t do.

LEONARD LOUIS LEVINSON

 

Gentlemen prefer bonds.                                                                  ANDREW MELLON

 

 

I wasn’t affected by the crash of ’29. I went broke in ’28.

GERALD F. LIEBERMAN

 

 

When a company president is ready to buy you lunch, it’s time to sell the stock. When he has something really good, you can’t get him on the phone.

PHIL STOLLER

 

May. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks in. the others are July, September, April, November, October, March, June, December, August and February. MARK TWAIN

 

Do you realize that 7-Up  is down to 41/2 percent?

LEOPOLD FECHTNER

 

 

A broker is a man who runs your fortune into a shoestring.

ALEXANDER WOOLLCOTT

 

 

You have to watch out for the railroad analyst who can tell you the number of ties between New York and Chicago but not when to sell Penn Central.

NICHOLAS THORNDIKE

 

A janitor is the only one who cleans up in Wall Street and gets away with it.

ANON

 

The firm is really ahead of the times. It has a stock market ticker that prints its report on thin aspirins.

BOB HOPE

 

If you’re not happy with the price of a particular stock, just wait a minute.

ANON

 

I’m beginning to wonder about my broker. Yesterday I told him to buy a hundred shares of A.T.&T. He said, ‘Would you spell that?’                                                                                                         

                                                                                                   ROBERT ORBEN

 

I’m 20 percent in oils, 30 percent in utilities, 50 percent in electronics, and 100 percent in hock.      ANON

 

If you are ready to give up everything else--to study the whole history and background of the market and all the principal companies whose stock are on the board as carefully as a medical student studies anatomy--if you can do all that, and, in addition, you have the cool nerves of a great gamble, the sixth sense of a clairvoyant, and the courage of a lion, you have a ghost a chance.

BERNARD BARUCH

 

 

 

 

Don’t confuse brains with a bull market.

HUMPHREY NEILL

 

An excellent monument might be erected to the Unknown Stockholder. It might take the form of a solid stone ark of faith apparently floating in a pool of water.

FELIX RIESENBERG

 

I wish I hadn’t acquired respectability. I’d be out selling the market short.

JOE KENNEDY

 

The more money you have, the harder it is to outperform the market because the law of averages will mug you in the next alley.                                                                                    Business week

 

Committees seem to be as poor in selecting stocks as in composing sonnets.

MURPHY TEIGH BLOOM

 

Now I’m in real trouble. First my laundry called and said they lost my shirt and then my broker said the same thing.                                                                                                                                      

                                                                                           LEOPOLD FECHTNER

 

Bulls and bears aren’t responsible for as many stock losses as bumsteers.

OLIN MILLER

 

A man cannot be a good doctor and keep telephoning his broker between patients nor a good lawyer with his eye on the ticker.

WALTER LIPPMAN

 

 

My father dealt in stocks and shares and my mother also had a lot of time on her hands.      

                                                                                           HERMIONE GINGOLD

 

It is very vulgar to talk about one’s own business. Only people like stockbrokers do that, and then merely at dinner parties.                                                                                            OSCAR WILDE

What boy well raised can compare with your street gamin who has the knowledge and the shrewdness of a grown-up broker.

ELBERT HUBBARD

 

What always impresses me is how much better the relaxed, long-term owners of stocks do with their portfolios than the traders do with their switching of inventory. The relaxed investor is usually better informed and more understanding of essential values; he is more patient and less emotional; he pays smaller annual capital gains taxes; he does not incur unnecessary brokerage commissions; and he avoids behaving like Cassius by “thinking too much.”
