World’s Most Popular Investment Blog

I came across the blog, “” today and thought it interesting enough to write a short post on this blog about it.

I have subscribed to it and will monitor it’s posts for the next few days or weeks.

What I like about it is it gathers market opinion and analysis rather than just relaying the news or the latest stock market hype. Specifically,

“ provide high-value, complementary financial content. This is different from other finance blog because it focuses on opinion and analysis rather than news, and is primarily about the overview of the market and the existing opportunities for investors, and it describes our personal approach to stock picking and portfolio management rather than simply recommending stocks.”

I cannot find a real person’s name so it may be a blog designed to make money. But the content is good.

The latest post is about Warren Buffet and his statements that he is worried that banks will dilute shareholders.

There is a section on the economic outlook 2009-2012 which you should all read. Much of it is gloom and doom but with ideas of how to cope if the worst does come to pass.

Plan for the worst and expect the best -these seems a rational approach when no one knows what is going to happen.

Make your own judgment and act accordingly. But try to stay current on what is happening even if it makes no sense or seem unreal.

There is also a section on their portfolio showing how their investments are performing. It’s only up to date as at 10/24/08 which is a cause for concern though.

What is probably the best post for me is the one that lists 10 wise statements which you should stick on your fridge door.

1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

3. You cannot help small men up by tearing big men down.

4. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

5. You cannot lift the wage-earner up by pulling the wage-payer down.

6. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.

7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

8. You cannot establish sound social security on borrowed money.

9. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a mans initiative and independence.

10. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

Supposedly said by Abraham Lincoln and what we should all take not of.


This time I checked my facts and according to Cincinnati Skeptics they were actually said by Rev. William J. H. Boetcker, a Presbyterian clergyman and pamphlet writer.

However many people attribute them to Lincoln and this error does not discredit the  opinions and analysis available on this blog.
