Weekend Linky Dinks

Mr. Market pulled off four days in a row-count em'-four. We saw a week where Madoff will soon be making little rocks out of big rocks, and where Cramer was taken down by Stewart. I hope there is more to come on the Cramer front for the sake of the public. Oh, by the way, there may be yet another stimulus coming. Enjoy the links.

I live 5mins outside of Beverly Hills and have seen this boom/bust cycle in the Collateral Lender store mentioned as well as others since the 80's. The big difference is that during recessions they only loan money and never buy goods. During good time they buy goods. On the assumption that people default on loans, its a good idea to go shopping there at the end of a recession. If you have relationships with these stores you can get incredible deals.

I am a former hedge fund manager, broker and capital markets dude who now trades for his own account. I love what I do. I will try to post some stocks and an occasional chart that looks attractive for entry.I will also try to point out the idiocy of conventional wisdom and the lack of value added by the mainstream financial media. These postings should not be viewed as recommendations.
