Nice mention in Barron’s of quite a few blogs today, including The Big Picture and a few friends and colleagues:
The Big Picture (http://bigpicture.typepad.com);
Kirk Report (www.kirkreport.com);
Paul Kedrosky’s Infectious Greed (http://paul.kedrosky.com)
Street gossip sheet DealBreaker (www.dealbreaker.com).
Many Wall Street analysts and money managers find blogging a
good marketing tool. Birinyi Associates’ Ticker Sense blog (http://tickersense.typepad.com) has
gained popularity, due to The Ticker Sense Blogger Sentiment Poll, where
bloggers can share their 30-day market outlooks once a week. This gathering
makes Ticker Sense a good place to find other blogs.
For a free blog smorgasbord without all the surfing, try
Seeking Alpha (www.seekingalpha.com). It delivers daily
analysis and opinion from among 400 contributors, many professional money
managers or analysts. Choose the investing themes, sectors and tickers you want
to read about, and you’ll get an e-mail of related articles and links. Global
Trends Investments President Barry Lydon is a typical contributor. Both his
ETFTrends (www.ETFTrends.com) blog and his
asset-management firm focus on exchange-traded funds.
