Special Report on

The Triumph of Contrarian Investing

the triumph of contrarian investing special research report Photo by www.propertyinvesting.net
The "conservative" Swiss banking giant UBS -- and I put that in quotes for obvious reasons -- wrote down a previously unimaginable $37 Billion dollars. Their shareholders were (ahem/cough) quite perturbed. So the nice folks at UBS, with an assist from KPMG, put together a 50 page report detailing the hows and whys UBS took such a humungo hit. For what you would expect to be a dry report, it is absolutely compelling reading. It explains much more than the subprime fiasco. The report implies that management didn't really understand what the hell they were getting into with their purchases of Warburg/Dillon Read Capital ...

Reading the Markets: July 2009
I will never understand why some perfectly dreadful trading books are touted as classics while books that could actually help the trader add to her bottom line remain in the shadows. L. Dee Belveal’s Charting Commodity Market Price Behavior (Traders Press, 2000) belongs to the second category. A commodity speculator for more than twenty years, Belveal is a sophisticated strategist. For the most part he traces the ebb and flow of buying and selling pressures using only price, volume, and open interest (with additional input from the Commitments of Traders reports that identify the strong and weak hands). His charts are not ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Berkshire to GS: "I Got $5 Billion, but - The Big Picture
Tonight's Goldman Sachs/Warren Buffett deal is a classic example of our post 2001 news: Looks good as a headline, is godawful underneath. Of course, futures popped on the announcement. The WSJ subhead read "Move by Famed Investor Amid Crisis Seen as Vote of Confidence in Banking System." Puh-leeze. Vote of confidence? Hardly. Doubtful. It is merely an opportunistic deal, and probably a damn good one, for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK). On the other hand, for Goldman Sachs, it is a very expensive deal. If you delve beneath the headlines, you see that Warren is not so much making a vote of confidence as he is extracting pound of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

About Empathy: what does it mean to you? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
I'm exploring the topic of EMPATHY as part of an ongoing pro bono exercise in support of the WAVE trust, an extremely worthwhile campaigning group that seeks "to create a world free from violence, where every child is loved and cared for, and every human being is treated with dignity and respect." What I'd like to understand and ask LinkedIn members to share with me is their personal view on EMPATHY, what it means, what creates empathy, what empathy leads to and how it impacts their lives, the lives of those around them and in particulr the lives of children in their families, their communities and society as a whole. ...
