The truth is in the past ten or twelve years, most of these “holding companies” have really hidden the fact that many of these companies are really empty shells.  Here are a few that are officially still considered holding companies, yet, these are operating from what we can see. Some are doing quite well!   Company Name: Black Castle Developments Holdings, Inc. Black Castle Developments Holdings, Inc.

The Surface is just another Zune most likely, while Apple dominates

Almost anyone that trades stocks online or does something related to the stock market to make a living full time is into the latest gadgetry and mobile electronic devices. Everyone I know that works for themselves full time has the usual old style desktop, a laptop, a current iPad, a couple of Android pads that didn’t quite workout, and either an iPhone or a high end Android.

While this list does have one “big name stock” it is not as big a name as it was decades ago.  You’ll recognize that one, as it is at the bottom of the list.  In fact, it is a bear pick on the list.
