Weekend Reading: Hello iPad Edition

This week’s Best in Money and Investing edition coincides with the launch of the iPad which probably made Tiger Woods happy (a little less press for his debut).  While some analysts were literally pulling numbers out of their butts touting 700,000 units on opening day, it was more like half that sold.  Nonetheless, Apple shares […]

Best in Money and Investing: Health Care History Edition

So much has been said about the recent health care reform bill – what’s good about it, what’s not, and just how divided the country is over it, that I thought it would be best to share a few perspectives that were both for and against to contrast with my article this week on What’s […]

Weekend Reading – iPad Cometh Edition

With Apple’s stock at an all-time high on anticipation of blockbuster iPad sales with an estimated 20,000 units sold per hour on opening day today, it makes you wonder whether such a hot item is completely recession-proof.  People need that iPad!  It’s quite amazing, and I’m holding plenty of Apple stock (see Darwin’s Portfolio – […]

Weekend Reading: I’m A Plutus Award Finalist Edition

I thought I’d dedicate this weekend reading edition to a shameless plea for votes in the Plutus Awards, as I was nominated for Best Investing Blog of 2009.  I spend so little time actually trying to promote myself vs. keeping up with posts, emails and life in general, that I figure I’d throw this one […]

Weekend Reading – “There Will Be Blood” Edition

This week it was announced that New York Attorney General’s office is filing civil charges against the former CEO of Bank of America Ken Lewis, saying he misled investors about Merrill Lynch when it acquired the bank in late 2008.  Whether this is politically motivated or there is legal merit, it is evident that after […]

Weekend Reading: HealthCare Up in the Air Edition

It was a tumultuous week in both the political arena as well as stock market action.  With a major upset win in Mass. by the Republican underdog Brown, Dems were still mulling over whether to try and push through a Healthcare reform bill that was nowhere near ready just before Brown was to be seated.  […]

Weekend Reading – “Gold: OK, We’ve Reached Ludicrous Speed” Edition

Any time I can sprinkle in a Spaceballs reference, I take full advantage of the opportunity.  With gold continuing its ascent to record levels (in terms of US Dollar mind you), gold bugs are basking in their glory while others scratch their heads and wonder why this relatively useless material continues to appreciate in value. […]

Weekend Reading – Spooky Halloween Edition

With Halloween upon us, no politics, no rants about our country’s profligate spending, just enjoy the weekend, either with kids of your own or scare the hell out of some trick-or-treaters.  The market’s been acting a bit scary of late, but after a 60% move from pivot bottom, it would be unreasonable to expect no […]

Weekend Reading – Balloon Boy Edition

Another week of great reads.  These are entries from blogs I frequent, and I hope you will too (just come back!).  I’ve also included various finance/investing carnivals that published my material this week and my favorite posts from my two blogs. This week’s edition coincides with a rather bizarre tale of a publicity-seeking family that […]
