Marc Faber speaks with Bloomberg

Marc Faber joined Bloomberg TV yesterday to talk about the markets, the economy, and the bailout bill currently making its way through Congress.

Faber makes some very salient points about the half-baked nature of the $700 billion bailout bill; the proposed "rescue plan" for banks seems to supplant the workings of the free market in favor of some incomplete and inequitable form of socialism.

Also, Marc sees the potential for a near-term bottom in these oversold markets and a subsequent rally in US shares over the next few months. He cautions that this would be a bear market rally and not the start of a new bull market.

While his investment stance is largely cautious for now, he notes that emerging market shares are starting to look attractive.

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.
