Miscellaneous weekend notes: PPG, crowdfunding

How high?

Remember the big jump in PPG in our Model Portfolio Index this week? Here’s a possible explanation for the uncharacteristically big jump – the company just announced it is going to cut 2,000 jobs, out of a worldwide 38,400.

The new JOBS Act signed with great fanfare as a – gasp! – bipartisan effort now makes it easier for small companies to get investment funding. Let us also say this opens the door for more fraud. Nope, we haven’t read the bill yet. May not read it ever. We just smell a rat.

Have a nice weekend!
