Chicago Natural Resource Conference

For those interested, the Chicago Natural Resource/Technology Conference will take place April 29, 2006, Saturday from 7am to 6pm. The event is held at Rolling Meadows Holiday Inn. Address and phone: 3405 Algonquin Road Arlington Heights, IL. (847) 259-5000.

There is no charge for admission, but you might contact organizers as space is limited. Here is the info contact that appears on my admission postcard: (317) 502-5828 richradez@yahoo.com

Keynote speaker is Joseph Granville, well known technical analyst and editor of "The Granville Market Letter". Other noted metals and resource analysts/newsletter writers will speak, along with representatives from participating resource/mining companies. At past conferences I had the pleasure of hearing commentary from the likes of Bill Powers, Jim Rogers, Clyde Harrison and David Morgan up close.

From what I gather, the Chicago conference seems to be one of the smaller resource events, at least judging by attendance numbers for similar conferences. I don't know if that's due to the location they've selected (not a major convention spot) or the promotion, but it tends to be a fairly tight knit affair. In any case, I'm glad to be able to hear and meet the guests in a smaller setting.

Having won their first Se ries in 86 years back in 200 4, the last decade-plus has marked a very strong return to form for one of baseball's oldest big league clubs. So how did they do it? Quick background: in late 2002, team own er and hedge fund manager, John W. Henry (with his partners ) bought the Boston Red Sox and its historic Fenway Park for a reported sum of $ 695 million. Henry and Co. quickly set out to find their ideal General Manager (GM) to help turn around their newly acquired, ailing ship.

William O'Neil Interview: How to Buy Winning Stocks

Investor's B usiness Daily founder and veteran stock trader, William O'Neil share d his trading methods and insights on buying winning stocks in an in-depth IBD radio interview. Here are some highlights from William O'Neil's interview with IBD: William O'Neil's interest in the stock market began when he started working as a young adult.  "I say many times that I didn't get that much out of college. I didn't have much interest in the stock market until I graduated from college. When I got married, I had to look out into the future and get more serious. The investment world had some appeal and that's when I started studying it. I became a stock broker after I got out of the Air Force."    He moved to Los Angeles and started work in a stock broker's office with twenty other guys. When their phone leads from ads didn't pan out, O'Neil would take the leads and drive down to visit the prospective customers in person.
