"The Intelligent Investor" really lives up to the hype

January 28, 2009 – Comments (4)

I hate to sound cliche but after finishing it myself, I can say that this is one amazing book. Graham lies out everything in a way where even the beginning investor can follow his teachings. He preaches discipline, patience, and a sound state of mind. It's a shame that so many people read and ignore his theories, but I guess that's what makes them so successful, right?  [more]



Why I'm short on BBBB

You folks listening to Peter Schiff and his fellow doomsayers are listening to echoes of last year's news. Schiff was dead on and saw the financial collapse a mile away. But right now, he's dead wrong. No one got anywhere investing in last year's news. The U.S. is not going to take a nose-dive overnight, especially right after a massive devaluation in 2008. Even if inflation becomes a problem, that's not an indicator on how well the market will do. In actuality, most investors use stocks to combat inflation. With bond yields at historical lows and gold extremely overbought, I'm looking at the market for top rate yields in 2009.  [more]
