Year To Date Total Returns for the S&P 500 and Other Indexes

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

June turned out to be a decent month for nearly every index I track here at AFM (you can click on the graphic to download a PDF version). One interesting thing to point out. Had the month ended on Thursday, oil would have been down 9% for the month. Instead, yesterday’s $7.27 per barrel increase […]

Chart(s) of the Day – Research in Motion

Friday, June 29th, 2012

BlackBerry, oh how far you have fallen. Market share: Share price: To make matters worse, they reported a quarterly loss AND their next smart phone won’t be ready until NEXT year instead of this Fall. This is huge in that they miss out on the Christmas season (that said, they’re probably only missing out on […]

I’m Stunned

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

I have to say, I’m stunned by the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare. It was split down the middle ideolocigally with John Roberts siding with the liberals. Incredible. Wow.

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Over the next few days I’ll be installing a new theme for AFM. I’m sure there will be some kinks along the way so please be patient. I do think the end result will be a new and improved AllFinancialMatters. I’m a little leery of moving away from the 3-column layout. It has served me […]

Great (Long) Piece About the Last Days of MF Global

Monday, June 25th, 2012

This is some good stuff from Peter Elkind and Doris Burke: The Last Days of MF Global. I will warn you: it’s long. Bottom line: John Corzine sunk MF Global. Yep, you read that right.

Robert Shiller: “Reviving Real Estate Requires Collective Action”

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Read this over the weekend: Reviving Real Estate Requires Collective Action What does he mean by “collective action”? Well, here’s one idea, which I find scary: ROBERT C. HOCKETT, a Cornell University law professor, has outlined another approach, which uses the principle of eminent domain, to solve this collective action problem. Eminent domain has been […]
