When Fund Managers Sell Stocks, It's Time to Go Bargain Hunting / Companies / Investing 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: You may not realize it, but the annual practice of "window dressing" - a process through which fund managers dump their worst-performing stocks and replace them with high flyers - can create some real bargains for retail investors.

The sleight-of-hand does actually little to improve the fund's performance, but it does keep a fund manager's biggest mistakes of the year out of the annual reports sent to investors. For that reason, most fund managers do some window dressing every December. And in years that the overall stock market has struggled - as it has this year - they're busier than usual.

Why Invest in Commodities? / Commodities / Investing 2011

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have crossed a critical threshold. The demand we are now placing on our planets resources appears to have begun to outpace the rate at which they can be supplied.

The gap between human demand on our planet's resources and the supply of those resources is known as ecological overshoot. To better understand the concept think of your bank account - in it you have $5000.00 paying monthly interest. Month after month you take the interest plus $100. That $100 is your financial, or for our purposes, your ecological overshoot and its withdrawal is obviously unsustainable.

By: Money_Morning

Why George Soros Selling Gold and Buying Farmland / Commodities / Investing 2011

By: George_Maniere

What asset has appreciated more than any asset since the year 2000?
Answer: Farmland.  1,200%

I was talking to one of my readers and he sent me an article from Panama that talked about farmland. Food prices are skyrocketing all across the globe, and there’s no end in sight. The United Nations says food inflation is currently at 30% a year, and the fast-eroding value of the dollar is causing food prices to appear even higher in contrast to a weakening currency. As the dollar drops in value due to runaway money printing at the Federal Reserve, the cost to import foods from other nations looks to double in just the next two years — and possibly every two years thereafter.

Three Stocks to Profit From Market Mayhem / Companies / Investing 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: There's never been a better time to invest in "safety stocks."

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 14% since July 22 and the Standard Poor's 500 Index is down 15% in that time. The U.S. economy is grinding to a halt, and a double-dip recession could be in the offing. Meanwhile, the U.S. Federal Reserve continues to undermine the dollar with expansive monetary policy.
