The essence of technical analysis involves studying of past financial market data to forecast price trends and make an investment decision based on this. Technical analysis only takes into consideration price behavior of the market. Unlike in value investing, technical analysis doesnt care about the value of a company. What's the use of analyzing past market data when the market is random. There can be a 50% chance of going up and another 50% of going down, why do we still need to study Technical Analysis. As I explained in the earlier article about how psychology affects investment, investors move in a crowd approach ...
or a significant risk of the loss of the principal investment. The term, "speculation," which is formally defined as above in Graham and Dodd 's 1934 text, Security Analysis , contrasts with the term "investment," which is a financial operation that, upon thorough analysis, promises safety of principal and a satisfactory return.

Dividend Investing Lessons from an experienced investor
that post quite alot. In fact so much so that i reckon that he should be retired to be able to do that. And i was right. Here is his profile: I have 10 kids and 28 grandkids with my first great grandkid recently born. I have been trading dividend paying stocks and profiting from them for over 50 years. I sell when I think it is needed but I buy for the long term. I am somewhat of a bottom-fisher – I like to look for the deal on a company I want to own anyway. I have traded commodities in the past, but I prefer to use ETFs now as they trade easier and make it easier to keep my two personal portfolios balanced overall. ... market research, surveys and trends
Bob Vila Would Not Approve: Asset Allocation for Fun and Profit
I suggested that commodities speculation was a poor idea and not a good use of retirement funds. But the fact that I think it's a lousy idea doesn't explain why a brokerage like Fidelity would suggest such a strategy. To understand why commodities are being promoted as an "asset class" (and Fidelity is neither the only nor the first brokerage to start pedaling commodities as an asset class) you have to look at what half a century of efficient market theory has done to investing. Modern Portfolio Theory To understand anything a brokerage ever does, you have to understand at least the basics of Modern ... market research, surveys and trends

The Art of Value Investing -
I have asked a very active poster, Bill R. (a.k.a nodoodahs) to be a guest commentator for this Thursday morning's commentary.  Bill is truly a great stock picker, and in this commentary, he will be giving us a basic run-down on how he typically screens for individual stocks.  Judging from the emails that I have gotten over the last few months, I believe this will be a very popular topic, indeed. Before we begin, I believe a little bit of introduction is in order. Like I mentioned in our weekend commentary, I asked him for a quick profile of himself and this is how he responded.  A very modest guy, indeed: " industry trends, business articles and survey research

Balance shifts in rent vs. own debate
An associate of mine who analyzes the real estate investment trust market for Barclays Capital recently held a press conference, which he titled, "U.S. Apartment Markets: Recovery Arrives." According to his and others' research, the multifamily housing market has finally turned the corner since the start of the economic downturn in 2007. Or, as my friend wrote, "Apartment demand has recovered more rapidly than most observers expected." That's surely a relief for the owners of apartment buildings, but, tangentially, it is also good news for potential homeowners because in the shifting metrics that contrast the value of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
