I have been around the stock market for a long time. I seldom mention any stocks I own.
Palantir I have owned for a long time.
I have no clue what they do. Long ago I used an old technique to help me understand stocks. It was simple. If I couldn't explain what the company did on the back of a napkin I probably didn't want to own it.
This is what Palantir does: Palantir Technologies Inc. builds and deploys software platforms for the intelligence community in the United States to assist in counterterrorism investigations and operations.
I don't know Alex Karp, one of the guys who started the company.
If I did I would buy him a hairbrush and a comb.
Congratulations to all of the owners of PALANTIR today.
