Carnival of Investing Recap

I'm very excited that my post on the sub-prime lenders is featured in this week's Carnival of Investing and Festival of Stocks. Hopefully, new readers can look critically at my reasoning and poke some holes in my argument.

Ben from the Money $mart Life blog hosted this week's Super Bowl edition of Carnival of Investing. The following are my favorite articles from this week's carnival:
1) FreeMoneyFinance summarizes Charles Schwab's interview into two recommendations to invest in index funds and to concentrate on one's career. One of the key lessons is to learn how to communicate, something that I should spend more time on.
2) SearchLightCrusade discusses the high cost of waiting to buy a home. My fiancee and I are discussing purchasing a home in the Bay Area. This post is definitely food for thought.
3) A Financial Revolution discusses the benefits of limit orders. I always use limit orders, but I would caution against setting limit orders to try to pick up stocks at daily lows. Often times, the stock won't hit that low again and you'd miss out on a stock that you really wanted because you were penny-wise pound-foolish.

From Ashish's compilation of this week's Festival of Stocks, I found the following posts interesting:
1) Precious metals is not in my circle of competence. Investor Trip discusses ways to play uranium, a source of clean energy. I've always been interested in an Australia ETF because of Australia's large deposits of natural resources.
2) The Skilled Investor blog claims most individuals are poor investment portfolio managers. As someone who is slightly trailing the S&P for the past 2 and half years, I'm a little bit worried that I am a poor investment manager. I have to admit that keeping abreast of all my positions is definitely time consuming. If I didn't love the stock-picking process so much, I would be the first to switch over to using index funds entirely. Hopefully, my long-term stock picks will pan out well in 3-5 years.

Every week, I hope to spend some time reading through the blog posts from others interested in investing and stocks. There is a wealth of knowledge out there and I hope to aggregate information and lessons from the blogosphere's best value investors.

I just found your blog, I think you provide some neat insight.. Heres Tom Brown's (Second Curve Capital) presentation on why CCRT is an interesting investment
http://www.bankstocks.com/presentations.asp
its the top one. Also check out PRAA, they buy portoflios of debt (same market as CCRT) and also a Tom Brown pick. CompuCredit's reporting after the bell today, FYI.
I just started a blog at
www.thestockgeek.wordpress.com and I'm doing the next Festival of Stocks, so please check it out.
Thanks!
