View from the markets

We have a couple of recent hits for you from FT.com's "View from the Markets" series.

These recent interview clips with Khiem Do, of Barings Asset Management, and Jim Rogers offer an insightful view of recent financial trends and investing themes worldwide.

In the first series of clips, FT's Andrew Wood asks Khiem Do for his view on subprime issues and the big picture outlook for the Asian economies.

We then hear some very interesting comments from Do on the US dollar and the strength of Asian currencies, and his outlook on the global economy in 2008.

Watch: Part one, part two, part three.

Jim Rogers joined FT "View" for a four-part interview in this second series of clips. As always, Rogers is happy to speak his mind on a number of subjects.

Here we see Rogers talk about US monetary policy and Ben Bernanke's reign at the Fed, the possibility of a short-term US dollar rally, American politics and Ron Paul (!), investing in China and Asia, the outlook for the Renminbi, Sovereign Wealth Funds, and his current views on commodities and emerging markets. Check it out.

Watch: Part one, part two, part three, part four.

Enjoy the interviews, and remember to come back and join us tomorrow for our "Features of the week". See you then.

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…

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.
