Quotes of the Week

August 25, 1997

You have to be smoking dope to think stocks will realize the kind of expectations built into prices.
     Robert Rodriguez, FPA Capital Fund in USA Today
     Smart Money's Quote of the Month (9/97)

Think big, think positive. Never show any sign of weakness. Always go for the throat. Buy low, sell high. Fear - that's the other guys problem. Nothing you have ever experienced can prepare you for the unbridled carnage you're about to witness. The Super Bowl, the World Series, they don't know what pressure is. In this building its either kill or be killed. You make no friends in the pits and you take no prisoners. One minute you're up half a million in soybeans and the next, boom, your kids don't go to college and they've repossessed your Bentley.
Louis Winthorpe, III (Dan Aykroyd) giving instructions to Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) prior to bankrupting Randolph and Mortimer Duke (Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche) in the 1983 comedy "Trading Places" (Comedy Central 8/18/97)
