  • Bond Prices Will Correct in Months, Not Years [View article]
    Ted, thanks for the article.

    You wrote: "I believe, from an "all things considered" basis, that the "popping" of the bond market will happen in the short-term (i.e. likely within 6 months, and possibly even yet in 2010). I make this judgment based upon many different factors."

    What are the "many different factors"?

  • "All hell breaks loose" in the stock market... starting today, according to Arch Crawford's astrology-based investment newsletter. Before you laugh too much, his letter predicted the 2008 collapse and has outperformed the market so far this year.  [View news story]
    Hard to see that. FDX raising guidance (seekingalpha.com/news/...) is a very bullish indicator for the economy and market.

  • Is Amazon's Kindle Already Irrelevant? [View article]
    RA Frankel, does the Kindle also have a broken caps lock key?
    :-)

    Joking aside, your point is well taken: the more functions you add to a device, the harder it is to get the usability good.

  • Just One ETF: Even With Deflation, None As Good As GLD [View article]
    Donald, even if gold has risen in value since 1978, you probably would have done better with bonds, and you certainly would have done better holding stocks. And remember, stocks have better tax treatment than gold. When you come to sell your gold, you're going to get whacked.
