We were talking in the office today, and that's what we came down to... Is there anything else we like? We know the companies we love... but are there any new ones? Where is Jimmy Johns? Where is Red Mango? Where is Pinkberry? Facebook? Where is In and Out Burger? Kayak? Swink? ( a local style bar in Seattle) Look there are some great companies out there, they need access to public markets and investors need new stocks. Looking at Cisco, Rimm, Citi, BankAmerica, Walgreen, Rite Aid, and a thouand other yawns these are not worth investing in/its dead money.
A government that favors risk taking by tax incentives would help.
