Doin' it Bloggystyle: Links and Pallindromes


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.

As Otto might say...

"I'm on line for an iPhone? I thought this was for Metalica tickets"

  • Fred Wilson compiles a bunch of reviews.
  • But how can it fail, it's even on Sportscenter according to Om Malik.
  • Is it right to fade the fading faders and actually buy Apple (AAPL)? Howard Lindzon points out what could go wrong shorting the The Launch.
  • Muckdog can already hear Tusk 12 hours to Midnight.
  • And I agree, listen to Tusk once every few years or so and you literally have this drumbeat embedded.

Flight to Panic

  • How spiked was the VXO? 50% above the 200 moving average, only the 8th time since 2000 as per Scott Rothbort.
  • What's it all mean? Not much five days out, but pretty bullish 20 days out.
  • How about six-month highs in the VIX? Good tidings says Ticker Sense.

Speaking of Fear

  • I'm always of the belief that once they start obsessing over some market bogeyman on Financial TV, it's probably just about discounted in the market.
  • Victor Niederhofer highlights that point in a review of Ken Fisher's new book, courtesy of A Dash of Insight.
  • Who might move big on earnings? Bespoke Investment Group tables the most volatile post-earnings names.

Interesting Sports Night

  • Not a big basketball fan, but it sure feels like Jeff Green went a bit high at Number 5 in the draft.
  • 3000th hit for Craig Biggio. One of six guys with 3000 hits, 400 steals. Is he a Hall of Famer? I mean, not sure hits count as much outside a big media market. All kidding aside, he kind of seems like the Don Sutton of batters. Great accumulated stats, but never in the conversation as a real top of the league player.
  • 500th homer for Frank Thomas.
  • And (hat tip to With Leather) , it's a Spice Girls reunion tour.
  • Yes, "five moms in their thirties, lip synching badly to songs that sucked ten years ago and wearing ill-fitting, age-inappropriate costumes!"
