Search Finance Trends Matter

In an effort to help you better find the information you are looking for, I've installed a Google Custom Search bar to help you scour this blog for relevant posts.

You'll find the new search bar in the lower right hand sidebar, underneath our Subscribe and Bookmark widget buttons. Just type in any keyword or search term you like, and hit the search button. All relevant results will be displayed on the next page, and you will also have the option of broadening your search over the entire web.

I chose Google Custom Search, a much needed improvement to our previous site search tools, to help you better find the information you are looking for here at Finance Trends Matter. You will now be able to easily search through all our past content, and find related posts on any subject of interest.

Quick example: say you came here looking for information about hedge fund manager, John Paulson. If you came to a certain post by way of a Google search, or a direct link, you may have seen only one piece of information on the subject before deciding to leave.

But if you were to look over to the Custom Search bar and try out this query, "John Paulson", for more information, you would find an additional number of posts mentioning John Paulson, as well as links to relevant post titles. You'll find even more results here for terms like "gold", "inflation", and "Marc Faber".

So use this search feature. You'll have more information with a minimum of effort, and better search results. Hope this will help you to better navigate the site, and unlock the best content!

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…

Moneyball: How the Red Sox Win Championships

Welcome, readers. To get the first look at brand new posts (like the following piece) and to receive our exclusive email list updates, please subscribe to the Finance Trends Newsletter.

The Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series titleof the 21st century this week.

Having won their first Series in 86 years back in 2004, 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 owner 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.

This brings us to one of my favorite scenes from the 2011 film, Moneyball, in which John W. Henry (played by Arliss Howard) attempts to woo Oakland A's GM Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) over to Boston with an excellent job off…
