From The Archives: "I'm Worth Millions. Seriously, I am."

I'm kind of a big deal "I know everything about movies."

Them's sounds like fightin' words.

The interns are here in the studio chatting about movies and the like, and this came up, thanks to Intern Gerard. So we started talking "The 'Street" again... i.e. The Hollywood Stock Exchange. Read on. Challenge me if you dare.

I'm Worth Millions. Seriously, I am.

I'm kind of a big deal on "the exchange", if you will.

How much a big deal, you ask?

My Net Worth is: $6,675,276.00

Yes, I am active player on the Stock Exchange.

The Hollywood Stock Exchange.

I've been an active trader for many years now, obviously you don't built a portfolio like that overnight. I can't believe I've never mentioned it before... Well, I'm mentioning it now because now I feel like showing off. And I'm feeling a little competitive. Anybody trade on the HSX?

Hollywood Stock Exchange...  just try and best me.Well, feel free to join. They'll even start you with an easy two mill.

So, what is it?

Good question, I'm not sure how to answer that, because even the HSX people themselves never actually refer to themselves as a game. Or an online distract. Or pretend-stock-exchange.

Which is actually what they really are. A pretend stock exchange. I have no idea who started it, why they started it, or what the point is, but it just an elaborate online time waster for folks with more than just a passing interest in the entertainment industry (and/or folks who love the whole system of trade and exchange). And it's actually owned by Cantor Fitzgerald, and they're like real finance and money people.

SHE'S WORTHLESS!  Well, actually she's worth *less* than she used to.So there it is. The gauntlet. I dropped it.

Feel free to join, and keep me posted on your progress. I often like to make fast gains with Hollywood Derivatives. I'm contemplating a couple thousand Idol Warrants, but Alison Iraheta's price just jumped to $14.56 a share.

I also don't recommend any Jennifer Lopez ... her stock price has leveled out at like $21. What a massive loser. It is also fun putting money on how new movies will fare at the the weekend box office. (That's really the secret to how I built my current fortune.)

I'm currently ranked in the +81.03% percentile... can you top that?

(Doubt it!)



  1. b-t-dub...I am currently worth: $6,709,085.57

  2. This popped up in one of my RSS feeds ... thought I'd comment: I've been playing since 1998. Net worth: H$814 Million.

    They launched a redesign of the site in the last few weeks - have you seen it yet? What do you think of it? :)

  3. I am actually worth H$188,682,809.81 in HSX which makes me ranked 9,035 on the site .. I have been inactive for a long while.

    Was easier to make money early on and less complicated.
