Welcome to the Festival of Stocks edition #30. This is my 2nd time hosting the festival; you can read the January edition of the Festival of Stocks if you missed it.
This week’s edition has some very good submissions, and as always I will list the posts that I really enjoyed. The rest of the submissions will follow my editor’s picks. Enjoy the carnival!
What An Honest SEC Filing from Blackstone Would Look Like – This is a hilarious post that pokes fun at the rich and greedy investors over at Blackstone. I read word of the IPO, but it doesn’t interest me. Although I recommend their Indian Fund – The India Fund.
Valuing US BanCorp – Investing along side Warren Buffet is usually never a bad idea. George analyzes USB, and calculates the stock’s intrinsic value.
Analyzing the Cash Flow for Synta Pharmaceuticals (SNTA) – This small biotech stock could make some noise once the product pipeline improves. I’ve added this stock to my watch list.
Rest of the Submissions
CNBC Stock Portfolio Challenge – A nice update on My Wealth Builder’s active CNBC challenge portfolio. In order to win the CNBC challenge, investors must shoot for high risk, high rising growth stocks.
A Subprime Gem: Capital One Financial – Great stock, but Capital One has no shame. I’ve got hundreds of credit card offers in my shredder to prove it.
Dell’s Account Problems – Why do people even buy Dell stock? They don’t manufacture anything; all they do is package the parts of a computer and then sell them to buyers. Sooner or later, Dell (the middle man) will be removed from the tech equation.
Following a Successful Trader – If you’re a trader, then this will be a helpful read. Unfortunately, traders and investors will argue over these stock buying concepts.
India Forming Double Bottom Base – A Look at Indian Funds – Good read on the rise of Indian mutual funds. Who thinks IFN is currently a buy?
While his background is mostly related to trading stocks, he recently gained interest in real estate crowdfunding with Fundrise.
