Can Turtles Fly?: Outlook from a bear, Gary Shilling
Gary Shilling must have had a very bad year in 2009. I think 8 or 9 of his calls were wrong. Nevertheless, going into 2010, he maintains most of his calls. I don't agree with all his views but I do share his thinking for the most part. Writing for MarketWatch, Paul Farrel summarizes Shilling's 17 picks for the year . Six of the seventeen are buys while the rest are sells. I think there is a typo with the numbering and I have corrected it below. For some of the points, I have chosen not to excerpt the detailed text. You can read the original article at MarketWatch if you are interested. I decided to do this to maintain ... market research, surveys and trends

High-yield junk bonds are a choice for risk-taking savers
In congressional hearings this week, Federal Reserve Chairman Benjamin Bernanke said that the central bank would keep short-term interest rates near zero for the foreseeable future. That's swell if you're a borrower, but hell if you're a saver. How do you get a decent yield these days? By taking on more risk, which is why junk-bond funds have become so popular. But are they a good idea? Possibly — at least until the next credit meltdown. The economy is slower than a snail on crutches, and the Fed has kept rates low to try and keep the economy from slowing further. Low rates let companies and consumers ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Finance; unknown stocks, higher returns
By betting on stocks that lack media coverage, investors may be doing themselves a favour, according to a new research paper co-authored by INSEAD Assistant Finance Professor Lily Hua Fang and Associate Professor of Finance Joel Peress . The study found that investors stand to gain comparatively higher returns by punting on stocks that have no media coverage than those that enjoy a high media profile. Indeed, the study’s survey of a portfolio of stocks with no media coverage found that it outperformed another portfolio of stocks with high media coverage by three per cent annually, even after controlling for ...

WikiAnswers - What is roll yield in futures investing
Investment in a commodity index generally entails (i) the bulk of the investment's being put into secure instruments such as Treasury bills and (ii) the remainder of the investment going into futures. The most liquid futures tend to be those in the very near term, and they usually have short maturities, typically 1 month, so investment in liquid futures means investing in a contract that is likely to mature in the near future. Given that the investment term in the index is open-ended, the futures investment component is going to move from one future to the next succeeding future during the life of the underlying index ...
