10Q Detective: How to Make a Million--Follow the Schedule 14A.
Investors often overlook SEC filings, and it is the job of the 10Q Detective to dig through businesses’ 8-K and 10-Q SEC filings, looking for financial statement ‘soft spots,'(depreciation policies, warranty reserves, and restructuring charges, etc.)that may materially impact Quality of Earnings. The 10Q Detective thought that it was time to do a self-help column for our readers. Money: Not how to spend it—but how to get it. Plugging in the words “million, dollars, get,” on several Internet search engines pointed us to hundreds of URL addresses with inventive, resourceful, and/or mundane ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Do Financial News Websites Really Help Your Finances?
The Internet is overflowing with tips and advice of all types, but possibly one of the most popular forms of advice given online is related to personal finance and bank accounts . There are a number of places to find information on finances, including financial news sites like Wall Street Journal and CNN Money . However, many personal finance blogs have also cropped up with tons of valuable advice so many in fact that one could wonder if financial news sites are really as useful for day-to-day financial assistance as the blogs. To explore this idea, let's take a look at what financial news sites as well as personal ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
On peso cost-averaging
“Dollar cost-averaging is a timing strategy of investing equal dollar amounts regularly and periodically over specific time periods [such as $100 monthly] in a particular investment or portfolio. By doing so, more shares are purchased when prices are low and fewer shares are purchased when prices are high. The point of this is to lower the total average cost per share of the investment, giving the investor a lower overall cost for the shares purchased over time.”—Wikipedia This is a good idea and a good risk-management tool, well at least in theory. My good friend Kendrick Chua in his blog ( www.thewealthwarrior.net ) has a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Chairman Spratt, Ranking Member Ryan, and Members of the Committee, thank you for inviting me to testify this morning on the budgetary and economic implications of the recent turmoil in financial markets and the Administration’s proposal to address it. Since August 2007, the Federal Reserve and the Treasury have been attempting to address a series of severe breakdowns in financial markets that emanated from the bursting of the housing bubble, leading to substantial losses on mortgage-related securities and great difficulty in accurately ascertaining the financial condition of the institutions holding such securities.

As economy sours, personal finance bloggers enjoy traffic spike
When Carrie Kirby leaves CVS, she usually carries out household goods and, remarkably, a couple of bucks more than she started with.   You see, Kirby, 35, of Oak Park, Ill., is sort of a whiz with coupons. A combination of reward programs and diligently collecting manufacturer and store coupons — found both online and through old-fashioned clipping of store circulars, as her Depression-era grandmother did — has helped Kirby and her family of five live off an $80 grocery budget, and except for a mortgage, live a relatively debt-free life.   Kirby documents her frugality and offers tips on her blog Frugalista . She's among ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Online financial resources | Ask MetaFilter
I've searched old threads and found a lot of information about how to save money, but I know how to do that. What I want, at this point, is to *read* about saving money, or about eroding debt, or developing/maintaining a budget. My family has a budget and a savings account -- neither is especially extensive, at this point, but it's something that we're working on. Because I find the subject interesting, I want to read more blogs and websites about finances, as well as examine other types of financial software, calculators, and spreadsheet setups. Google returns so many hits (and so many of them shady-seeming) that ...
Financial books for a college graduate | Ask MetaFilter
My bro is graduating from college this month and is asking a lot of financial questions regarding investment/savings/etc. As the first college graduate in the "real world" he's asking me for some advice. I am looking to get him some books that I liked ( by Dave Ramsey and Suze Orman ) that have helped me out. I was seeing if there are other tomes of financial wisdom that I should get him for graduation (there are other gifts.. don't worry I'm not that lame;) Scott Adams wrote a very good book on personal finances. Unfortunately, he couldn't get it published because it was only 129 words long. ...
