Review"This book is like Mal - who is a rider, a rocker and a rebel. He doesn't just think outside the box - he drags it behind his Harley on a cross-continent adventure and then runs over it a few times for good measure. The Bay and Wall Street guys are gonna hate it - Main Streeters should embrace it. One ton of fun!" BJ Del Conte Chase Producer, BNN - Business News Network Business Producer/Anchor - CP24

Money Flows and Regulatory Overkill!

Goldman Sachs advice scares the beejeebies out of me!
“We think it’s time to say a ‘long good-bye’ to bonds, and embrace the ‘long good buy’ for equities” announces Goldman Sachs! This sort of pronouncement has the ability to turn someone who’s been a diehard bull since 2010 into … Continue reading

Research in Motion TOP PICK? Is the guy whacko?
Who in their right mind would suggest Research in Motion as their TOP PICK for 2012? There’s no shortage of controversy to be sure surrounding the company. Yesterday I sat with good friends, man and wife, and SHE (Rayla) thought … Continue reading
