Investing Carnival #9

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, August 26, 2008 | | 2 comments »

It is with great pleasure that I present to you the ninth edition of Investing Carnival supported by the members of The Dividend Investing and Value Network (The DIV-Net).

There were quite a few entries for this edition. However, some were not included because 1.) they did not fit the topic, 2.) the page would not load and 3.) when there were more than one submission from the same site, I selected the one liked best.

With so many good articles, everyone is bound to find several that they like. Authors should link back within the next seven days.


David presents Investment Opportunities in Energy Independence posted at Physician Entrepreneur, saying, "Most likely, oil prices will not be going below $60/barrel, and this will encourage continued attention and investment in making America more energy independent. This represents an opportunity both for America, but also for those who invest in this trend. See the full article for details."

Wilfrid presents Are TIPS A Good Investment? posted at Your Finish Rich Plan, saying, "Protection against the ravages of inflation should be an integral part of every investor's long-term strategy"

David Templeton presents Slowing Global Economy And Stronger Dollar A Headwind For U.S. Multinational Firms posted at Disciplined Approach to Investing, saying, "A strong U.S. Dollar will serve as a headwind for U.S multinational companies. Declining oil prices will offset some of this weakness though."

Ye Cheng Yuan presents How to Buy Stocks posted at Qovax, saying "Buy low, sell high. It's obviously good advice. In practice, it's not as easy as it sounds. How do you know tomorrow the price will not drop another 10% or 30% for that matter? If you bought today with all the cash at hand and it drops another 50% tomorrow, no amount of self-kicking would relief the pain inflicted."
