I Believe That ‘Pinterest’ (PINS) Stock Could Be The Next ‘Etsy’ Or Even A Micro-AMZN!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘marketwatch.com’. Symbol PINS.


I got into Etsy and AMZN late — though in the case of AMZN it would be very. v. v. churlish of I to complain. SMILE.

Well, with PINS I am hoping NOT to make that mistake. From what I can see PINS is in a great position to greatly improve upon its user base and Ad. revenue. So, I got into PINS shortly after the IPO. It was a tough road to hoe the last few weeks but today it was pay dirt. Still a long way to go BUT I am typically a VERY LONG TERM buy-and-hold investor.

So, I am banking on PINS. I don’t own that many as yet. But, I will slowly increase my stake.

So, just wanted to SHARE this with you. Have a look. What have YOU got to lose?

Stock performance in Tel Aviv.

Click to ENLARGE and goggle. 


I was researching the intriguing ‘PinterestIPO when this caught my eye. I knew exactly who they were. So, I had to do a bit of investigating.

Wow. Their stock performance in Israel has not been stellar — and that is saying it kindly.

I would NOT touch this U.S. IPO. The stock, in Israel, right now, seems to be on a downward trajectory.

Also seems a bit late in the day to do an U.S. IPO. They went public in Israel 12-years ago!

During ‘dot.com’ I did a ton of work for a number of Israeli high-tech companies. Great folks to work with, but I kind of learnt one thing. It is not easy for outsiders to make money in Israeli companies. Yes, of course, there are exceptions.

This one does not fill me with optimism. But, you can check it out.

British “Ann Summers“, of sex shop fame, CAME UP with
National Orgasm Day” in 2001.

So they have to get pride of place.


It was like the ‘1960s‘ and the ‘Beatles‘ invented by US the British
— who else?

So this has to be next. British pride in another great and kind contribution to humankind.

I was on the prowl for 2105 Sinhala Aluth Aurudu’ (New Year) posts/pictures from Sri Lanka when I stumbled upon this delightful site — because they had a Sinhala New Year cake picture from last year. Then I just happened to see the words.

Aahhhh! Queen’s English the Sri Lankan way. I just wish they had thrown in a few ‘buggers’, or at a minimum one ‘bugger’, in there — because Sri Lankan MALES when talking English insist on punctuating each sentence with at least one ‘bugger’. So if it was being spoken it would go something like: “You Bugger, would you like a home own, you bugger, in Fairway Galle, you bugger?” In Sri Lankan English ‘bugger’ is a throwaway term of endearment. To be referred as ‘bugger’ is to be included, much. 

“Like a home own” is quintessential Sri Lankan English. As is “amidst enhancements bold”. That is actually very powerful and poetic. If not for my scruples on matters such I would love to plagiarize that. I will have to work on variants.

So now you can realize why my English is so fractured and strained. I think in Sri Lankan English BUT try to conform as best as I can, and, as you know, don’t succeed that often.

Well, Happy Easter and Sinhala New Year to all you Buggers. 


The same site, in a slideshow, has this picture. Just cracked me up (you bugger). So typically Sri Lankan. Shameless and innocent. Yes, this, as far as I recall, has always been a proud National pastime (Sri Lankan buggers known to be a randy bunch) — shamelessly and openly gawking at the foreign tourist. I, alas, haven’t been able to partake in this since the 60s. Those days tourism wasn’t that prevalent and topless was frowned upon (in more than one way). But from what I have heard the Germans, who flock to Sri Lanka for the THREE ‘Ss’ — ‘sun‘, ‘sea‘ (and I can’t, you bugger, remember the third, which might have been ‘sleep’, ‘salt’ or ‘string hoppers), have insisted on their right to bare their boobs. The buggers, hospitable to a fault, acquiesce to please the tourist. So, go to Sri Lanka, the beaches are a delight behold much, and you can bare your boobs and be readily admired by tons of buggers who will stare bold shame none.

Laugh. Life is short. Fun is even shorter.
