    Ralph called in to the show today and started talking about some stocks that he had made money off of recently. Howard asked him which stocks, and he said Apple, Netflix, Sirius, etc. Howard acted shocked that Ralph had invested in Sirius, and even more surprised that he could have made money on the investment. Ralph said "yeah, remember when you and Ross and I were out to dinner and the stock was at like 80 cents, I said why not throw down $500 or $1,000, it's like being in Vegas. Howard acted surprised and went on to compliment Ralph's investing acumen. Seems like this is something that Howard would remember, unless he is scared of getting accused of insider trading with his boyfriend.

    He does. Come on, think about it, have you ever heard of anyone who's ever made money investing in Sirius?

    He didn't seem surprised and ya, he probobaly forgot berry made 50k on Sirius stocks. Thats like 50 bucks to you or me... And it was $.08, you would have had to be an idiot not to buy a few shares if you played the stock

    That makes 2 people that made money on Sirius stock. I lost money on that worthless stock, well it was worthless after Wiggy dumped most of his right after he signed up with Sirius and crashed the stock. Thanks Bernie Madoff of radio.

    I remember Ralph saying that he WAS investigated for insider trading. Don't remember the details, but he and several friends of Howard's bought Sirius stock just before Howard signed and they had to go to some meeting and answer questions. Nothing was done to them but when Ralph told the story he acted (as usual) like a wise-ass and hinted that he actually did have insider info but was able to bullshit his way out of being caught.

    How could you not if you bought at $.08 and it's worth $4.00 now?

    I bought at right around $1. It's one of my best performing investments ever.

    I bought a fair amount of SIRI when it was trading at less than a dollar and still have it. I don't think they're going to go out of business, but who knows.

    If you had bought it for 80 cents, you'd think it was pretty great.
