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…

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. No…

Each year at Christmas for some time now, I have shared the accompanying commentary by the late Mennonite theologian, John Howard Yoder.

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…

Why Glass-Steagall HAD to be Repealed

Chris Temple 0

It's been nearly 15 years since this key Depression-era legislation was repealed by a Republican Congress and Democrat president.  The reasons why the banks were pushing for Glass-Steagall to be deep-sixed became evident with the monstrous mortgage and derivatives boom--and BUST--of ensuing years.
