I'm still experimenting with what I'm going to blog about here. I'm thinking of sticking with an odd mixture of technology and academia, which might work out well since I'm considering doing my upcoming thesis on technology in the Middle East, specifically blogging. So, here's a purely academic post to start things off. On Tuesday Dr. Lisa Anderson, AUC's Provost and former professor at Columbia University, came to speak at a faculty seminar at the Middle East Studies Center. She's a political scientist by training and started her academic career by studying Libya. Her talk focused on the role ...
index based investing
Selwyn Gerber writes: Probably the simplest, and certainly the wisest approach to this quandary is the “Core & Satellite” model of investing. The investor should identify what portion of his portfolio he can afford to lose and what portion is necessary for his long term financial survival. The “core” portion should be invested in long-term conservative strategies and the “Satellite” portion can be used for a group of more aggressive, shorter term and opportunistic investing, especially if the satellite elements are independent from and unrelated to the core and to each other.

Are You A Real Estate Rip Van Winkle ?
Do you remember the story of Rip Van Winkle?  As we listened to the story as a child we thought that it was impossible for anyone to sleep away twenty years of their life…waking up one day to discover that everything  had changed. Now that we are adults we can look at this story in a different way. What if the story is telling us that we are doing the same thing in our real estate investing  lives ?  We may not have been sitting under a tree sleeping but we are allowing the valuable time we are given each day to slip away as we are “overwhelmed by the numbing effects of everyday living”. As real estate ... market research, surveys and trends

The 20-year portfolio - Feb. 19, 2004
NEW YORK (MONEY Magazine) - Invest for the long term. That's what everybody always says we all should do. But if it's such a great idea, how come nobody seems to do it? According to Morningstar, the average U.S. mutual fund sells its typical stock only 11 months after buying it. Annual turnover on the New York Stock Exchange also exceeds 100 percent, meaning every share of the typical stock changes hands more than once a year. The horrible market losses of the past few years seem to have made many people question the value of a long-term outlook. In a recent survey of investors for Charles Schwab, 42 percent of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Day of the Lion or the Lamb?
That was the question of the hour among Wall Street pros over the weekend, following a great week for investors. After a bruising six-week loss of 16% between early March and late April, the slumping, schizophrenic stock market suddenly looked like a lion again last week by awakening from its Rip Van Winkle slumber and transforming itself into Superman, LeBron James and Samson all wrapped into one. As a result, the Dow zoomed 5.3% or 511.55 points in four consecutive winning sessions, in the process racking up its best week of the year. That surge raises a perplexing question: Was the giant gain a fluke or the start of something ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTION: I have a collection of Classic Comic Books from 1943 to 1969. are these of any value? Most are in very good condition. Thanks ANSWER: Hi Marcia Classic Comics are of some collector interest, especially first editions.  The problem is that most issues were reprinted many times, so you may or may not have the originals.  The way collectors determine the edition is by looking at what is called the "Highest Reorder Number" or HRN.  That is the highest back issue available for reorder on the in-house ad that usually appeared on the back cover or inside back cover. Generally the issue number and HRN ...
