Let’s be honest, you could pretty much throw a dart any day of the week at theStockTwits Blog Network, and end up hitting a post that is better than 99% of the other stuff out there that passes as financial blogging. So to say these are “The Best of….” is a little disingenuous; let’s just say these are some of the posts from the last week that caught my attention and I think will interest you.
Investing is not always a “clean” endeavor, as you often have to interact with all sorts of unwanted entities. Knowing what motivates them may affect your financial success as Abnormal Returns highlights in “Incentives matter when it comes to investing.”
Dynamic Hedge finally solves the mystery as to why Kurt Cobain blew his head off in “5 Things I Learned While Working For Courtney Love.”
Kid Dynamite uses some “sick” analysis in “Why Can’t Journalists Who Write Article About Gambling Understand Math?” to illustrate how The Atlantic misreported their recent story on the whale who broke Atlantic City. Note to self: Never sit with KD in a 30-60 No Limit hold ‘em game.
“The best laid plans of mice and men……” well you know the rest, and Dragonfly Capital explains how that saying applies to trading in “Always Have an Emergency Plan.”
In “My Last Will and Testament“ James Altucher talks about the non-material things he hopes to leave to his children, and ponders why his blog is a magnet for those who want to take a long walk off a short pier.
Charting the CRB Index and explaining why the way it reacts to its current levels may give a clue as to where we head for the rest of 2012 is the focus of “What Can We Learn From The CRB Index?” by All Star Charts.
Nouriel Roubini is know to thrown some pretty wild parties, but Eddy Elfenbein of Crossing Wall Street probably won’t get an invitation any time soon with posts like “Nouriel Roubini Three Years Ago.”
“Who am I to Question the Animal Spirits?” by The Stock Sage tries to take the crazy position that some fairly interesting and significant things happened this week in the markets that were not related to $AAPL. Yeah right!
And finally, bookmark “Clips from Street Signs Today” as this is the exact point in time where the “I knew him when” story will begin for The Reformed Broker. There may be hope for CNBC yet.
(Note: If you are new to my blog, I post about all sorts of things. Sometimes it involves something extremely personal, like creating a 30K baby or my Monster Trades. Other times it deals with hot ex-porn stars who trade stocks. And sometimes it’s about how to avoid “suicide”. But a good place to start is The Best of bclund.
