Has Empire Avenue Gone to the Dogs?

Empire Avenue Wisdom 34

Has Empire Avenue Gone to the Dogs?

In a recent blog article, Empire Avenue CEO and semi-professional zombie hunter, Duleepa Wijayawardhana (e)DUPS, announced that the top 100 Stocks in Empire Avenue have performed better than the sluggish Dow Jones Industrial Average and it’s hipster cousin, the NASDAQ, over the past 5 months. Dups even put down his zombie-smashing, nail-adorned, baseball bat for a moment to “prove” his boastful boasting with a pretty little graph.

DUPSYeah, right. The phrase, “Figures lie and liars figure” comes to mind. Do I need to remind you, dear reader, that these so-called “facts” come from a man who’s nickname and twitter handle is short for “Duplicitous?” (Not to mention he “embroiders” this “name” on all his pillow “shams”). All Dups is attempting to do is put perfume on a huge, steaming pile of doggie doo.

Empire Avenue Wisdom 023 – Mondays

Empire Avenue Daily Investment Wisdom 023

Monday is a day for buying, not for selling.

(Editor’s Note: Original Post Date – December 6, 2010)
Monday is a day when many stocks are slipping into the yellow or even the red as their ticker scrolls across your screen. Just like in the real world, the Empire Avenue market moves in cycles. One of the cycles that is evident, is the general downturn of share prices across the board on Mondays, related to the fact many people have reduced activity over the weekend. Even influencers who were active over the weekend may experience a drop in share price as the effects of “global market gravity” conspire to tug their stock gently back to earth. This presents the savvy investor with an opportunity to snatch up some real bargains. On Mondays, graphs can be your best investment advisor. Look for some solid stocks with a steady rise over time that have dipped slightly over the weekend. Throw some eaves in and increase your holdings, before they resume their regular weekday activity and the share price begins to climb again.


Empire Avenue Wisdom 032 – Pay It Forward

by THE INFLUENCIER on May 14, 2011 •  4 comments

Pay it Forward During [X]PENDAPALOOZA

The members (allegedly) of a group ([X]) that may (or may not) exist are sponsoring a special Empire Avenue event today (for the next few hours). During [X]PENDAPLOOZA, the likes of  John (allegedly) Gushue (e)GUSHUE, Cindy (allegedly) Smith (e)REIGN,  Darren (allegedly) MacEachern (e)ANGLER, Omar (allegedly) Habayeb (e)OKMMH, Ben (allegedly) Arledge (e)BEN, Michael (allegedly) Walker (e)EDM, Adriel (allegedly) Hampton (e)ADRIEL, and others (allegedly) are buying (big) into anyone who asks (for real). In exchange, you are encouraged to pay it forward and use the eaves you receive to build community by investing in others, making new connections, and meeting new people, rather than reciprocating a buy back in these generous (very) folks.

The first two hours of [X]pendapalooza have been insane, with millions of eaves flying back and forth across Empire Avenue in new investments. To join in the fun, post your Ticker in the [X]Bar Facebook Group [X]pendapalooza thread and visit the [X]Bar Chat on Empire Avenue.


Empire Avenue Wisdom 031 – Embrace Superstition

EAvWisely 031 - Embrace Superstition

Embrace Superstition

The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia and let me be the first to say, that’s a friggin’ hard word to spell, let alone pronounce. Much like the last name of Empire Avenue CEO and semi-professional couch surfing champion Duleepa “Dups’ Wijayawardhana (e)DUPS.

Now, in most parts of the world, Friday the 13th is synonymous with bad luck or that one movie where those teenagers definitely kill that dude wearing the mask (Awesome flick. Somebody should make a sequel.) However, on Empire Avenue, Friday the 13th means only one thing — Secret Achievement time!

In any given year, Friday the 13th appears on the calendar at least once, but no more than 3 times. This year, it only happens once. Your next opportunity to unlock this achievement won’t roll around again until January 2012. It’s now or never if you want to snag this rare gem. Let’s get started, shall we?

New to Empire Avenue? Want to understand better what Empire Avenue is all about? Are you competitive and want to see your share price rise? Are you a social addict and want to make connections? Building your brand and not sure if Empire Avenue has got the goods? Here’s a tip: Chat. But Chat Wisely.

Now, hold on a second. I know, some of you have tried the Empire Ave Chat feature and have been totally turned off by the inordinate amounts of chat spammers shouting “BUY ME!!!” or are disgusted by folks who are missing the point of “true networking” by trading LinkedIn follows. Yes, I’m looking at you, Irene Koehler (e)IRENEKOEHLER.

What I’d like to offer is that Empire Avenue Chat is what you make it. First, let’s talk about the spam…

Update Your Status. Over the weekend, I engaged in a little Empire Avenue Portfolio “Spring Cleaning.” I hadn’t sold anyone in, oh, I don’t know, 6 or 7 months, and let’s just say I was carrying around a lot of dead weight. Something drastic needed to be done. My goal: Trim my portfolio from around […]

Removing 2,000 names from your watch list does not earn you a Secret Achievement. It only results in blisters on your clicking finger.

Don’t sit on the fence. Pick a side. When it comes to Empire Avenue Twitter Index Cage Matches, you gotta commit. Get off the fence and pick a side. Even if the side you pick loses, if you buy in early, you’ll make some Eaves while other people invest and the share price increases, as […]
