Mutual Fund Returns May Not Be As They Seem!
Arthur Levitt, during his tenure at the SEC, experienced many cases where the non-indexed mutual fund manager bought shares for their own accounts before the fund bought the shares. The fund’s purchases drove up the price of the stocks and the fund manager’s made a killing on the deal. This is called "front running," and is illegal under securities laws. Mr. Levitt also witnessed instances where the funds would buy huge blocks to run up the stock price at the end of the financial reporting period. This made the fund look like it had a high profit when it did not. This makes the fund’s performance look better ... market research, surveys and trends
The Wants and Fears of George Soros
George Soros has demonstrated to the world that he has one of the brightest financial minds of our era. He articulated a framework that he dubbed “reflexivity,” which inconveniently argued that forces in the financial system could periodically become unstable rather than always tending towards equilibrium. His famous winning bets such as against the British or Thai currencies made his opinions not only respected by money managers such as myself; they instilled fear within powerful politicians and central bankers. Those on the wrong side of Soro’s wagers are not only speculators, they can be simple businessmen ... market research, surveys and trends

How to invest proceeds from home sale short-term. | Ask MetaFilter
Where is the best (safe, short-term) place to invest money (over 200K) from the sale of our home until we purchase another one. Please don't make me learn a LOT about markets, etc. I'm packing and moving to a new area and already stressed. ; ) We are moving from Washington state to Oregon, and will be renting while we look for a home. Since the market is still going down in the area we're moving to, we won't be in a big hurry to buy but expect the market to hit bottom in late fall or winter, '08/09, so will probably only need a place for our money for 3-9 months. We'd like it to earn a little ...
How does mutual funds work and if i invest 10000 rs in any mutual ...
mutual funds are just a pool of cash that investors give control of to a manager or group of managers. the goal is (typically) to preserve or grow that capital. the returns on mutual funds are certainly not guaranteed. the returns depend on the types of investments you allow your manager to make, and the effectiveness of that manager and his support team. fees and expenses also factor into that equation. in 5 years, you might have turned that 10k into 100k or 1m. or, the fund might have failed by then, and you could have lost it all. this is why you should take your time and do your research, so that you can find a fund where ...
