FSO Newshour updates

Been catching up with the last couple of weeks of Financial Sense Newshour broadcasts. Lots of topics covered here - definitely give the broadcasts a listen if you haven't already.

Some of the highlights from the recent January 13 and January 20 broadcast:

Jim Puplava and his panel of Newshour experts and guests cover the outlook for the economy, a technical overview of the markets, forecasts on weather trends and the resulting impact on commodity markets (with guest Evelyn Garris of the Browning Newsletter), and opinions on energy and metals markets.

While listening to the first hour of this week's broadcast, I hear energy panel expert, Richard Loomis make some interesting comments on our nation's "energy literacy". This is a competency that Loomis feels is lacking in most individuals, despite the fact that many of us are influencing energy outcomes through politics, investment, and even our daily use of fuel and electricity.

Give a listen and hear Loomis' view on how consumers are being robbed of choice when it comes to selecting our energy future.

Of course, you will not want to miss this week's "guest expert" interview with Marc Faber. Always an interesting and entertaining guest, Marc will be giving us his view of what lies ahead in 2007.

Do check it out and enjoy!

The Dot-Com Bubble in 1 Chart: InfoSpace

With all the recent talk of a new bubble in the making, thanks in part to the Yellen Fed's continued easy money stance, I thought it'd be instructive to revisit our previous stock market bubble - in one quick chart.

So here's what a real stock market bubble looks like.

For those of you who are a little too young to recall it, this is a chart of InfoSpace at the height of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble in 1999-2001. This fallen angel soared to fantastic heights only to plummet back down to earth as the bubble, and InfoSpace's shady business plan, turned to rubble.

As detailed in our post, "Round trip stocks: Momentum booms and busts", InfoSpace rocketed from under $100 a share to over $1,300 a share in less than six months. 

In a pattern common to many parabolic shooting stars, the stock soon peaked and began a…

William O'Neil Interview: How to Buy Winning Stocks

Investor's Business Daily founder and veteran stock trader, William O'Neil shared 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 withIBD:

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.

"I'd get in the c…
