Mrz 5th, 2013 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

WSW Articles: Stock Market CommentaryTopics: Foreign AffairsDennis Rodman went to North Korea and apparently spent two days with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

North Korea is an enemy of the United States so TV news throws any rational discussion out the window and emphasizes danger and threats. It ... [more]

Wealth Inequality in America – Mike Swanson (03/04/2013)

This is a video that has gone viral on Youtube. In my view this is partly a function of the growth of industries tied to the government that operate outside of the free market that other businesses and everyone else has to live in. These are industries that are dependent on government spending and cost+plus contracts such as the military-industrial complex and industries that are handed money in bailouts and Fed money printing such as the entire financial ...

WSW Open Portfolio – Doing a Little Selling – Mike Swanson (03/04/2013)

Mrz 4th, 2013 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

I am doing a little selling in a few positions today. I bought them the other week, but I now think the correction in the market is going to last a little longer than I was thinking when I bought them. At the time if the market had gone lower last week I had thought the correction would end. But the move up in the middle of the week makes it more likely that it will now ... [more]

TV Cartoons Programmed Kids to Hate Gold Bugs – Mike Swanson (02/19/2013)

Feb 19th, 2013 | By brinvest | Category: WallStreetWindow

After-school Fed Propaganda from the 80s: The evil Cobra organization tries to replace fiat money with a privately coined gold currency, but are shut down by the heroic G.I. Joe special forces team. The show taught us that paper money is good and hard money is bad,because it isn't created by the government and associated gold bugs with terrorism/communism. Amazing how much TV is just pure propaganda. Topics: American Society and CultureWSW Articles: Stock Market Commentary

Instead of picks I believe the best way to help you is to show you what I'm really doing. One thing Google doesn't do though is keep up with dividend payments, so a big chunk of this $8,000 deposit is a record keeping deposit to keep up ... [more]
