  • Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Deflation? [View article]
    Inflation to me always meant credit cost adjustments to inventory, shown as "profits", increased sales and increased earnings. A company could look pretty good with moderate growth. Deflation meant debit cost adjustments, and working hard with less staff achieve lower sales and earnings. Technology and efficiency drives deflation, so we will see it in certain industries.

  • An End To Our Relationship With Yahoo, A New Era For Equity Research [View article]
    I quit using Yahoo some time ago. I check SA every morning before the market opens. I follow several industry professional contributors who take their time to share their knowledge. I skip most of the articles by contributors who are not in the financial industry.
