Chapter 1 - The Early Years

November 30, 2010 – Comments (17) | RELATED TICKERS: MTH , R , JNS

Of that citizenship I have ever been proud.  [more]

Avoiding the Next BP

November 06, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: BP

In this blog by TMFDanDzombak he asks the question: BP (NYSE: BP) had always been thought of as a blue chip, a stock you can invest in and not worry. But then the Deepwater Horizon disaster happened, lopping off nearly 40% of the company's value. In dollar terms, that's more than $60 billion of company value, gone in less than three months. Many investors are furious and are wondering if this was foreseeable. So how can you avoid the next BP?   [more]
