Doin' It Bloggystyle: Start Your Engines
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 pretty much 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 some Scottish guy with an Italian sounding name revels in his marriage to Ashley Judd...I mean his Indy 500 win. Trend-Spotting:
- Buy the *rumor* of yet another busy summer driving season and sell the news (in the oil service stocks). Maybe yes, says Bespoke Investment Group (hat tip Abnormal Returns).
- A vision checkup from Dr. Duru.
- Some warning signs via ETF volume as per The DayTrade Team.
- Tough time for shorting. Even undeniable short setups going nowhere as Bill Rempel shows.
- High times in the art market, via The Global Liquidity Blog.
- Totally agree with Bullish Jim's point here. We (bloggers) are all great at talking about our winners, when in reality it's the handling of losers that is vital to performance.
Now that CBS owns Wallstrip, any interest in branching out into Options Blogs?
- The Times says it's All About Lindsay. "Ms. Campbell, he (Michael Arrington of Tech Crunch) wrote, is "said to be" the reason for the acquisition. "Campbell has talent but if this was the driving reason behind the buy, they'd better hope she can tap dance as well."
- Fred Wilson says it's a tad more than that. "Like how to get the show on every video service quickly and easily. How to tag and promote the show on each and every service so it actually gets seen. How to measure and track all the views. How to reconcile all the different measurements you get. How to get subscribers in iTunes, FeedBurner, and YouTube. How to make a web site that communicates what the show is quickly and easily. How to do advertising in a way that doesn't get in the way of the viewer. How to get the show indexed by ticker in the major finance portals. And most of all, how to keep it short, fun, and funny."
- Roger Ehrenberg adds some further thoughts.
And Then Some
- Muckdog remains my go-to source on the Rosie O'Donnell vs. Elizabeth Hasselbeck catfight.
- Where's your Jeter now? David Wright takes a 0.5% stake in Glaceau in lieu of ad payment, rakes in a cool $20 million on the deal.
- Nice mention for The Kirk Report in the SF Chronicle this weekend.
- Now that Clemens is ready, will he demand the Yankees deal him to a contender closer to home?
