Review"This book is like Mal - who is a rider, a rocker and a rebel. He doesn't just think outside the box - he drags it behind his Harley on a cross-continent adventure and then runs over it a few times for good measure. The Bay and Wall Street guys are gonna hate it - Main Streeters should embrace it. One ton of fun!" BJ Del Conte Chase Producer, BNN - Business News Network Business Producer/Anchor - CP24

I’ve seen this movie over and over again. A stock rages upward, and instead of letting investors simply enjoy the ride the company has to ruin it by issuing (diluting) more shares. This is just the first volley – expect … Continue reading

Is stock market going to tumble over the fiscal cliff?
I saw the following comment/question just the other day and was surprised since it was in response to a posting I initiated way back in August 2011 entitled “Is the market on thin ice?” The theme of the original commentary … Continue reading

Hiring…..? Go for the older guys! Part deux.
In an earlier but extremely popular posting entitled –Hiring Portfolio Managers? Go for the older guys! – I hinted that age discrimination, at least when it comes to the investment industry is a bad idea, even if it is endemic. I have no supporting … Continue reading

Goldman Sachs advice scares the beejeebies out of me!
“We think it’s time to say a ‘long good-bye’ to bonds, and embrace the ‘long good buy’ for equities” announces Goldman Sachs! This sort of pronouncement has the ability to turn someone who’s been a diehard bull since 2010 into … Continue reading

Wanna be a Portfolio Manager? Forget the ‘walk’ and learn the ‘talk’!
Portfolio managers become very adept at covering their everyday-idiot side and at a moment’s notice switching on their learned-professional alter ego. Like the Two Face character from Batman comics, it’s often difficult to determine who it is you’re actually talking … Continue reading
