Posted on 11-11-2014Financial research is different from financial journalism. However, in recent years, professionals in both industries have encountered a similar dilemma.

When I entered the securities business in the late-1980s, I had a hard time explaining to my...
Posted on 09-11-2014If you publish a WordPress blog, or write articles that appear on Medium, you’ve probably discovered how easy it is to produce beautiful-looking written work on the Web.

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...
The Frontier of Finance and Social Media. The landscape for stock analysis has also been altered by the convergence of technology, social media, and finance.
