Your Best Bet

Though i hate both cricket and Bollywood - those two great subcontinental passions - i've always considered myself a typical Indian. That is, until the IPL spot-fixing expose revealed the amount and extent of illegal betting on the results of sports events in India.According to one guesstimate, if the government were to legalise gambling it would earn enough by way of revenue, by imposing a tax on every wager made, to be able to send to school every single child in the country. The people who made this guesstimate did not say what those children would do after they'd finished their free schooling as the government would probably not be able to provide them with jobs. No matter. They could always set up shop as self-employed bookies, which presumably remains a lucrative business which would earn the sarkar enough revenue to send the next generation of kids to free school, and so on and on, till we'd all become a nation of school-pass bookies.However, all the bookies would be out of work if all Indians were like me. I hate gambling, even on Diwali, which is considered auspicious. I don't hate gambling for any high-principled moral reason. I hate gambling because while i have no objection whatsoever to winning money, i cant bear to lose money. Which is exactly what would happen were i to gamble, as both Lady Luck and Lakshmi have long ago unfriended me on Facebook. I've realised that for me the safest way to double my money is by following that old advice: fold it and put it back in your wallet.I realise that this aversion to gambling - not for any holier-than-thou reason, but because of a cowardly fear of losing my size-38 cm shirt - makes me an untypical Indian. Gambling seems to be in the genetic code of Indians. If it weren't, Vyas would have had to write a best-seller called not The Mahabharat but Five Idiots, featuring the five Pandav brothers and their time-share significant other, Draupadi.It's just as well that Indians are such dedicated and determined gamblers, ready to take all-or-nothing risks on a daily basis. And the best part of it is that India - the India of today, that is, if not the India of Vyas - ensures that all Indians, men, women and children, get their fair share and more of gambling without ever having to go to a horse-racing track, a casino, or to a bookie, legal or otherwise.You get up in the morning and turn on the bathroom tap. Will any water come, or won't it? It's a gamble. You turn on the light switch. Will the light come on or wont it, because theres a power cut? It's a gamble. You go out to work/to school/to play/to shop. You'll come back home safe or will you get run over by a hit-and-run driver/get chain-snatched/get mugged/get raped. It's a gamble.In an election you vote for the candidate who promises to give you a clean and honest government. Will your candidate turn out to be only as corrupt as the previous person you'd voted for or would this candidate prove to be - if such a thing were possible - even more corrupt than the last one? It's a gamble. When you open the newspaper tomorrow will the main headline be about the newest scam/the latest sexual assault/the most recent political deadlock? It's a gamble.Want to bet?

Andrea Hore, 38 -
A year on, the wine rack in Andrea Hore's now-empty Albury home still glitters with clues to her personality. Bottles of champagne and sparkling wine sprinkle through the collection: Moet & Chandon, Laurent Perrier, Piper-Heidsieck, the Aussie Sir James, sweet Italian spumante. "Bubbly," confirms friend Narelle Robinson.But truer still is the tribute left with flowers a couple of days after the bombing. "You sparkled like champagne and diamonds," it said."That summed her up so perfectly," Narelle says. "She was a party girl, she laughed, she was passionate. Someone said she was like a light switch because she just turned on the whole room."With a neon-bright smile and a thick halo of curling hair, Andrea was impossible to forget - in Albury, where she was one of the best-known young women in town, and in Bali.Narelle remembers phoning her there last October 12. She told her she'd met up with a local taxi driver they'd befriended on their first trip to the island in 1997. "He saw that mass of hair and cried out 'Hello Andrea, where's Narelle?'"She said they'd been to the Sari Club the night before and had a great time and were going back again."Born at Bowna, near Lake Hume, on the property her family had farmed for four generations, Andrea loved the outdoor life, says her father, Tony. She rode horses, loved dogs and scuba diving with her friend Jenny Murphy. But she was equally passionate about her family and her job as planning manager at Uncle Ben's foods."It was her dream job," Tony says. "She loved the travelling part - it took her to England and America, as well as China and Japan - but she devoted amazing energy to the day-to-day. She was a great worker: she used to work up to 20 hours a day sometimes."Tony says Andrea was devoted to her friends, her siblings Nigel and Janenne, and particularly her mother Neta, whom she cared for during a four-year battle with cancer. Neta passed away last month. "One of the reasons her mother died, I think, was not so much the cancer but she died of a broken heart," Tony says. "She just missed her little girl so much."
Biogen Is Preparing for a 40% Rally in the next 12 Months
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Back in March, the Biogen (BIIB - Get Report) party ended suddenly as if someone had flicked off the light switch off. Now, after six months of brutal shunning by the herd, the light switch is about to get turned on again. If you can see through the haze, a tremendous opportunity awaits those who like to accumulate positions over a few weeks to months, then hold for a few quarters to years.Click here to see the following chart in a new window The monthly bar chart of Biogen above hints at the imminent end of the selling from $480 peak, as an orthodox and impulsive decline is about to reach the initial green box, surrounding $245 /-$15. Once it does, conditions will be ideal for at least a 40% rise that takes nine to 15 months. The pink box defines the target zone for the corrective rally, which surrounds $360 /-$15; a 47% potential rally. The decision support engine's pattern recognition algorithm can't yet rule out the need for the red arrow on the left to be the path the stock takes, which would mean it makes lower lows than the stock has seen thus far this year. But the oversold condition of the stochastics, which has not been this extreme since 2008, warns greedy short-sellers to at least place protective buy stops at $292. If you're able, use any further weakness, into the green box, to cover short exposure before an imminent reversal out of the green box begins a neck-snapping thrust for most of 2016.The lower two-standard-deviation band (olive/gold band, which is around $250 right now) likely will continue to support any retest of the lows of this year. 2008 was also the last time Biogen's stock price was in the vicinity of this statistical extreme while the stochastics were at the oversold 10% threshold. The combination of these two independent measures of oversold momentum, with an Elliott Wave pattern so close to perfection, and the Fibonacci 50% retracement level about to be probed, leads to one of the most textbook buying scenarios available to be identified -- in advance of a spike/reversal buy signal!Conservative investors can begin to put their toes in the water by purchasing the stock at $245 /-$15, buying more aggressively as the price reverses back out of the green box. The most important consideration is that selling actions are not indicated here, and won't be indicated again until the pink zones in the stochastics and price panes are revisited. This should not occur until at least late 2016. The next highly confident play will be establishing long exposure in the coming days/weeks, and tying on your BIIB for the coming feast.For more of this kind of analysis, join our new real-time, live-market analysis chat room.
