Profiting from disaster
My portfolio was up over $17 thousand today, largely due to huge surge in TAYD shares. I'd be lying if I said that I am not happy with the windfall, but the truth is that this is a bittersweet experience. You see, TAYD manufactures shock absorption equipment, including the sort of shocks that are installed in buildings to mitigate the impact of earthquakes. Obviously, yesterday's disaster was the cataylst for today's run in the stock. Well, I've decided to give a portion of today's winnings to charitable groups involved with the relief effort. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this disaster.
