Nice mention in Barron’s of quite a few blogs today, including The Big Picture and a few friends and colleagues:

Additional recommendations:
The Big Picture (;
Kirk Report (;
Paul Kedrosky’s Infectious Greed (
Street gossip sheet DealBreaker (

Many Wall Street analysts and money managers find blogging a
good marketing tool. Birinyi Associates’ Ticker Sense blog ( 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

    as well as yourself I use Seekng Alpha to track about 25 US/OSADRS/ETFs/Foreign Stocks (not all) not only for current news bites you can follow up if desired but a good alert on filings etc
    david jackson has been very responsive to queries
    a valuable service
    email arrives daily and changes to your menu are easy

    can’t see wal mart as a good indicator due to its core demographic
    any comments?
    also wondering if gold’s current blues are hedge fund related and not a vote of confidence in anything else

    Congratulations on the Barron’s mention. Your blog is great!

    I agree with most of the Barron’s picks, including Seeking Alpha and Paul Kedrosky’s blog, but I’d leave off Dealbreaker at this point, which I think is past its peak. They used to be a fun read, but they seem to have really gone down hill since Ms. Spiers was dismissed. Interestingly blogs like Dealbook (with no Barron’s mention) are getting snarkier and faster to the punch, and Gawker and NY Magazine’s Intelligencer are also doing more snarky business related stories, all giving Dealbreaker more competition.

    you think maybe the internet has ground the six degrees of separation down to four?
