Chris Temple 0

I for one find it MOST gratifying that the Hildabeast has recently been hoist on her very own "The Russians Are Coming!" petard. But that said, much of what you have heard about that Uranium One scandal involving the Clintons is an exaggeration. Still, a silver lining could be emerging;…

Trump’s Neo-Mercantilism is NOT Populism!

Chris Temple 0

(Posted February 1, 2017) -- FINALLY, in a Financial Times piece this morning, I saw the broad economic trade/policy provisions of President Trump correctly identified.  Whereas elsewhere this major newspaper (and most of the rest of the media) have INCORRECTLY described as "populist" what Trump is pushing, he is instead…

The Sarepta saga continues. . .

Chris Temple 0

Generally, I do not make known to anyone other than paid Members the specific ETF's and stocks I recommend; at least until well after they have first had a chance to act, and usually not even then.  But the ongoing story of Sarepta Therapeutics (Nasdaq-SRPT) is more than an investment…

China’s New Investment Bank: A Premature Prophecy

Chris Temple 0

This reasoned take from the folks at Stratfor takes away the hype and more from the recent China-led creation of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

How to invest like Peter Lynch

Chris Temple 0

While we must certainly make decisions based at least somewhat on our outlook for the overall stock market and "macro" situation, the best gains by investors (and most fun!) have traditionally been had by searching for the right companies, and buying them when they are cheap and/or relatively undiscovered.

A “Bail-In” here in America? Not so fast…

Chris Temple 0

Every now and then there are various scare stories that pop up about some type of government confiscation of your savings.  Some say we'll go the way of bankrupt Cyprus, and see the federal government ultimately confiscate savings in a "bail in" to help shore up the government's balance sheet.…

The REAL Cause of Enron’s Collapse

Chris Temple 0

When energy giant Enron imploded in scandal and financial ruin, too many described it as a tale of political cronyism, greed and whatnot. The truth was deeper than that: Enron collapsed because it had turned itself into the poster child for what is wrong with the fractional reserve system and…
