The Bottom Line
Cut to the chase, my brother; speak on it!
The Minyanville take daily on news, commentary and opinion from around the world:
John Veroneau writes in today's Wall Street Journal, "Asian investors in America, beware: The U.S. Congress is mulling tighter controls on foreign direct investment. This time, it's serious."
- Bottom Line: Dubai Ports World, meet CNOOC; Mr. Smoot, meet Mr. Hawley.
Bloomberg columnist Chet Currier asks, "Is the famous old ``Dogs of the Dow'' investment strategy dead, or only sleeping?"
- Bottom Line: Dogs of the Dow strategy too old-fashioned and boring. Instead, try these newer, more exciting strategies:
Dawgs of the Dow - Stocks selected by best hip hop sounding name potential, i.e. Snoop CAT DIS MO, The Notorious AIG, DeeJay DD HON
Darts of the Dow - Self explanatory
According to Forbes, the world now has 102 more billionaires. "Forbes says there are now 793 billionaires, thanks in part to emerging stock markets. The Czech Republic has its first billionaire ever. China now has eight, up from just two last year," the Associated Press reported.
- Bottom Line: Minyanville Presents - Ask a Billionaire
Dear Billionaire -
How can I too become a billionaire?
Minyan Not a Billionaire
Dear Minyan Not a Billionaire -
Let's try a simple experiment. Put yourself in my place for a moment and consider which of these actions would better help you become a billionaire.
1.) Thoughtfully answering "How can I become a billionaire?" questions all day.
2.) Ignoring "How can I become a billionaire?" questions and instead focusing on making money.
If you guessed two, you are correct.
