Heard a great quote today from a stock market analyst on what to do the rest of the year.  With China, impeachment talk, 2020 Election, Interest rates and the global economy all representing real or perceived risks, what is an investor to do?

His comment was don’t try to grab on the the end of the FANG trade of hot internet stocks. Don’t try to figure out, along with billions of other dollars whether Netflix or Tesla or Bitcoin has more to go on the downside. Don’t sell everything because of Trump.  But he shared its ok to keep your

4 Letter Domain Names Under $500

Leave a Comment0

For a long time 4 letter domain names were “Gold” in the domain space. In the shortest of time terms, the ability to buy and flip isn’t as great as the hey-day. But, trends die slowly and the success of the past still brings liquidity to this market.

I never understood this market fully til it was to late, so I don’t trade in these names. However some aspects of desirabilty are always there, (like CVCV on the Super Premium upside). I think in the value end there is still some shortness over exact spelling that works for brandable names. … Read the rest

AirBnB and Taylor Swift – Famous Names and TM Make Top Domains List

Leave a Comment0

This was a head-scratcher for me.

Verisign published their monthly domain report. AirBnB and Taylor Swift jumped out at me because I think in retrospect, – to quote those few of you who remember the I Love Lucy show – someone may have some “splaining to do”.

Now I think within fair use domains should be able to use TM words if they are not trying to confuse the public, or using under fair use.  Very few domain name investors make use of their domain names so domainer WIPO cases may not be the best way to set a standard.… Read the rest
