I�ve decided to do my own little study on the merits of a mechanical investing operation as suggested by Ben Graham in that article. The purpose of this post is to outline the basic framework of the operation and to solicit feedback on where I was forced to make additions to the method as described in the article. The article does not fully define the method and so I�m left to fill-in the blanks and I�ve tried to adopt a logical and hopefully reasonable and safe approach to the problem. However, I�m concerned about introducing biases and unintentionally deviating too far from what might have been Ben�s thinking. This is ...

Have you tried an online dating site? « Inspire Rockford
I’d like to start this week’s post with a quick poll. I want to know how many of you have actually tried to find a partner on an online dating site like Match, eHarmony, Plenty of Fish, etc. Please take a moment to vote to share where you are on the online dating fence: Up until very recently, my opinion of online dating was exceptionally low. I thought it was dangerous and a tactic only desperate people considered trying. It took a few really close friends, who were candid about and unashamed of their experiences, to change my mind. Their direct experiences showed me firsthand that both of my assumptions about ... market research, surveys and trends

Subprime Infects $300 Billion of Money Market Funds (Correct ...
Aug. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Money market funds were invented 37 years ago to offer investors better returns than bank savings accounts while providing a high degree of safety. Most of the $2.5 trillion sitting in these funds is invested in such assets as U.S. Treasury bills, certificates of deposit and short-term commercial debt. Unlike bank accounts, money market funds aren't insured by the federal government. They almost never fail. Unbeknownst to most investors, some of the largest money market funds today are putting part of their cash into one of the riskiest debt investments in the world: collateralized debt obligations ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

keep your cool in a scary market
(Money Magazine) -- You knew it couldn't go on forever. And deep down, the spectacular run-up in stocks that began when the bear market bottomed in March 2009 was actually making you a little nervous. An 80% surge in just 13 months was starting to feel a lot like bubble territory. So yes, a breather was probably in order. But another full-blown financial crisis? One that would hammer stock markets around the globe? You were hardly expecting that; few people were. Spiraling debt troubles in Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, and Spain kicked off the chaos. Worries about a sharp economic slowdown in China and anemic job growth ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
ABC's IPO Underscores the ABCs of Banking in China
The wait is finally over. After several years of will-it-or-won't-it guessing, Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) made its stock market debut -- first in Shanghai on July 15, then in Hong Kong the following day -- with much fanfare. Raising $19.3 billion with an anticipated option to issue an additional $2.7 billion over the following weeks, ABC has now set the world record for the largest initial public offering (IPO), nudging out the $21.9 billion IPO from Industrial & Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) in 2006. As the last of the country's big state-owned banks to launch a public offering, ABC's shares -- whose ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors
Information is the investor's best tool when it comes to investing wisely. But accurate information about "microcap stocks" — low-priced stocks issued by the smallest of companies — may be difficult to find. Many microcap companies do not file financial reports with the SEC, so it's hard for investors to get the facts about the company's management, products, services, and finances. When reliable information is scarce, fraudsters can easily spread false information about microcap companies, making profits while creating losses for unsuspecting investors. In the battle against microcap fraud, the SEC has ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
