Doin' It Bloggystyle: Apple, Barclay's


Minyanville brings together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering just about everything, from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Some links as we wonder whether CNBC has enough "Honey".

Coalition of the Wailing
  • Daniel Gross in Slate on the "motley collection of gazillionaires, conservatives, and industrialists begging the Fed to cut interest rates. " Hat Tip, Abnormal Returns.
  • Lots of pleas for help, incidentally, for a "well contained" problem. Financial Armageddon starts a "Contained" Hall of Shame.
  • Mish looks into one of the bigger beneficiaries of a potential bailout, Bill Gross.
  • And as Paul Kasriel contends, there's no such thing as a free bailout.
What's in a Name

On the ETF Waterfront

  • Contrary indication? Two "orphan" ETF's are actually going to merge into one, according to Index Universe.
  • Not to worry though, they're only Canadian. When you convert the exchange rate and adjust it into Celsius, it's only like .40 US ETF's merging.
  • I'm kidding in the above. I defy anyone to find a better combo of financial blogging and photographic talent than Kevin from Calgary.
  • And speaking of Canada, Investing Thoughts looks in depth at the Claymore/SWM Canadian Energy Income Index ETF (ENY).
  • And hey, not to worry about an ETF shortage after all: Barclays (BCS) is on the case.
  • As per ETF Trends, "In addition to working on the first exchange traded fund (ETF) based on municipal bonds, Barclays Global Investors also has ETFs based on natural gas, private equity and infrastructure in the pipeline. Also, Barclays would like to expand its ETF products into international stocks, alternative investments, the 401(k) market and the 529 college-savings market, according to Reuters."

Stock Picking

  • One of the "defenses" of a certain pundit in regards to a front page Barron's article was that the author had no basis to decide which stocks to include in his performance analysis.
  • Silly author just assumed when you say "buy", you the viewer/reader should just know whether it was serious or not.
  • Intentional ambiguity, as Todd at ValuePlays noted
  • Anyway, here's a radical idea. How about something like what Bullish Jim and Dance With the Gorilla do here and have a listing of what you actually mean when you name a name.
