    America: Worst is yet to come

    Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

    UK banks in danger
    Another financial crash may be in the offing for Britain. And the unfortunate part is the UK banks are not prepared. Lack of adequate capital reserves and vulnerability to external shocks may put the UK banks in precarious position. Need to know more? Refer to the link below from "The Guardian". (The Guardian)

    If you pay a lot for something, you stand to earn less on it
    Investors often fall prey to the irrational exuberance during market booms. Even when the stock prices keep rising, they expect higher returns. And eventually they end up burning their fingers. Because if you pay a lot for something, you stand to earn less on it. How? Refer to the link below picked from "Money" that will enlighten you in terms of rational investing. (Money)

    The most important factor in long term business returns!
    For an investor, cheap valuations or quality are two crucial aspects of investing. While everyone wants best of both, these aspects are a little difficult to locate simultaneously. While sole focus on cheap stocks may work for some in short term, as the author suggests, ROIC is the most significant factor in long term business returns, even more important than valuations. Read on for more details. (Base Hit Investing)

    America: Worst is yet to come
    The recovery is not yet stronger. There also a section of those who have not at all benefitted by the relentless Fed expansion of balance sheet. Moreover, over half the U.S. adults have had tough times to manage their rent and mortgage payments. The retirement plans also stand shaky. Many are running huge credit card debts. Moreover, the worst of housing crisis may be round the corner. The perception of Americans about the economic recovery is still pessimistic. Why so? Aren't they too happy with the government initiatives? More such answers can be found here in the article below: (Zerohedge)

    Not just a great investor but also a good teacher. And there's a lot to learn from the legendary Warren Buffett. And when it comes to value investing, basic investing insights come to our rescue. Hence, get into the brains of the legend to strike the right chord. How? Here is the link below that will benefit you immensely to emerge as a smart investor. (Money)
