Posted on 09-10-2014I'm a very frequent LinkedIn visitor, and I love the website's user interface. But I'm the first to admit that the platform's algorithm occasionally spits out member updates with all the finesse of a loud belch at a Wall Street cocktail party. Most business professionals have found themselves on the wrong end of corporate restructurings at some point in their careers. As a result, we sometimes...
Posted on 06-10-2014This morning’s headline that Chinese insurer, Anbang Insurance Group Co., had agreed to acquire the Waldorf Astoria from Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. ($HLT) attracted all the media attention one would expect for a trophy hotel deal. The story had the trappings of a major news-maker: an iconic piece of New York real estate, a Chinese buyer, and an eye-popping price tag. The module.95 billion...
Posted on 27-09-2014Wall-mounted televisions tuned to CNBC are a ubiquitous presence on Wall Street. It's a strange and ironic phenomenon, when you think about it. How many staff lounges in hospitals broadcast old episodes of Grey's Anatomy? CNBC has perfected a pantomime of the noise and action of Wall Street trading desks.

They also entered other fee-based financial services and...
Posted on 14-09-2014If you're a newcomer to social media websites like Twitter and reddit, you've likely discovered how challenging it can be to attract new followers. If you send a Tweet, or post a comment on reddit, your message has only a fleeting opportunity to find an audience. If you tag your Tweet with a popular "hashtag," it might enjoy a brief moment in the Twittersphere spotlight. However, if it doesn't...
Posted on 06-09-2014I first became familiar with the dynamics of "social trading" while writing about Web-based investing platforms like DittoTrade and EToro. Such online services enable brokerage account holders to "piggyback" on the trades of lead investors. These trading services incorporate many of the interactive elements of social media. Within the past year, software developers have launched several new apps...
Investing Isn’t only about “The Number.” Business journalists and investing bloggers have become fixated on anticipating and reporting corporate earnings relative to consensus expectations. Cable news pundits recount earnings reports as though they were sportscasters summing up last night’s game scores, with the “winners” and “losers” easily identified. However, the significance of company news can’t be boiled down to a single reported number... Read more
