Independent Vice Chairman & Lead Independent Director Carl Braunlich Just Sold A Bunch Of Shares In Full House Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLL)

We’d be surprised if Full House Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLL) shareholders haven’t noticed that the Independent Vice Chairman & Lead Independent Director, Carl Braunlich, recently sold US$114k worth of stock at US$3.42 per share. Equally important, that sale actually reduced their holding by a full 82% which hardly makes us feel bullish about the stock.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Full House Resorts

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the Independent Non-Executive Chairman, Bradley Tirpak, for US$235k worth of shares, at about US$1.97 per share. So it’s clear an insider wanted to take some cash off the table, even below the current price of US$3.23. We generally consider it a negative if insiders have been selling, especially if they did so below the current price, because it implies that they considered a lower price to be reasonable.

Going ‘Full Suburb’: An Upsizing Couple Leave Brooklyn for New Jersey. Which of These Houses Did They Choose?

Just before the pandemic hit this spring, Johnny Cruz and his girlfriend, Diana Yarmovich, moved in together, in a modern one-bedroom rental in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.

Mr. Cruz was already working remotely, but the two had a tough time when Ms. Yarmovich began working from home, too. They swapped places between the bedroom desk and the kitchen table. Their rent hit $3,200 a month.

With mortgage rates enticingly low, they resolved to buy a home, but knew they couldn’t afford Brooklyn. Besides, it was hard to hunt in the city. “All the in-person showings were shut down,” Ms. Yarmovich said. “We defaulted to New Jersey, where they were letting you in for private showings.”

New Jersey, where they both grew up, was an easy fit, as friends had started relocating there. “We took an inventory of our friends and realized we’d gotten to an age where this had happened,” said

Pig Couch on Craigslist: The Full Story

Abigail Rowe already had a couch, a hand-me-down from her ex-boyfriend’s brother. Like most of her furniture, it was free and utilitarian, a place holder for a more stylish piece that she would buy someday.

But someday arrived sooner than she expected. In 2018, Ms. Rowe was browsing the “free stuff” section on Craigslist when she saw the perfect couch: a bulging pink love seat shaped like a pig.

The upholstery was shiny, almost slick, as if the pig would gently rebuff any attempt to sit on it. Its eyes were vacant and slightly downcast. Its tail, a bit of unraveled yarn jutting from its hindquarters, looked like an afterthought compared to its carefully carved hooves.

“The pig is expressive and sort of downtrodden,” Ms. Rowe, 25, said. “It looks inviting.”

The person who posted the listing for the couch claimed to be a furniture artist named Andrew who was

Home Prices Are In a Bubble. Full Stop.

(Bloomberg Opinion) — Rapidly rising housing prices in the U.S. has led to talk of another housing bubble like the one that helped trigger the financial crisis a little more than a decade ago. Consider that the Case-Shiller National Home Price index has gained in excess of 6% per year on average since January 2012, while net rental income has barely kept up with inflation, increasing just less than 2% per year. The result is that home prices seem as overvalued as they were in the spring of 2005, nine months before the peak.

Full House Resorts: A Cheap Entry Into The Recovering U.S. Regional Gaming Market (NASDAQ:FLL)

We have been following this small, regional micro-cap gaming company on SA since April 21, 2016. Here’s our history:

April 16, 2016: Price was $1.50. We called a buy, believing it was a $3.50 stock in hiding.

On September 8, 2016, we maintained our PT. The stock was up to $2,50 and beginning to gain some scattered interest, if my emails from investors were any indication.

On March 10, 2017, we posted on FLL again. The stock was $2.27, and we again guided a buy.

Since then, of course, the pandemic has taken its toll on the trade, as it has for the entire gaming sector. When the big, highly visible gaming stocks were getting body slammed, all eyes, of course, were on the Macau big three: Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts Ltd.

Detroit grandmother says contractor strung her along after paying in full for tub installation

DETROIT (WXYZ) — A Detroit grandmother suffering from multiple sclerosis says a contractor she paid thousands of dollars to install a tub has strung her along for months.

This story serves as a reminder, and any reputable contractor will tell you this: Never pay in full upfront.

“He’s paid in full. I paid him everything. Big mistake. I knew better than that,” said Doris Neal, who paid in full for a tub installation and labor.

But Doris says she went against her better judgment back in June, paying a contractor in full upfront to install a tub.

She paid $1,500 dollars for labor and $1,600 for a tub.

“And I wanted this tub so bad. Because I really needed it for my health,” she told 7 Action News reporter Darren Cunningham.

The 67-year-old says her mobility is limited due to multiple sclerosis and she’s also battling endometrial cancer.
