Markets and economy - not in sync
Jul 9, 2014

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

Memorable quotes from a great investment speech
When one thinks of great investment speeches, the names that come to mind are of course Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. However, there are other successful investors who are perhaps not that famous but have some great wisdom to share. Read on to find out some memorable quotes from one such speech made way back in 1981. (The Motley Fool )

China's shadow banking
China's shadow banking system is gathering steam too fast. And this happens to be one of the major reasons for its mounting debt concerns too. Moreover, the restrictions over direct government borrowings have given rise to a parallel banking activity. To know more about the same, click on the link below picked from Forbes. (Forbes)

Markets and economy- not in sync
Despite market bull runs, investors stand poor. Yes, that's the true picture on the Wall Street. Well, not to mention, the stock market is just one barometer of prosperity. And there are varied structural issues still plaguing the U.S. economy. Besides the nation is suffering from a crisis in confidence. So how has it been going with the developments in the world's largest economy? To find out more, refer to the link below picked from Marketwatch. (MarketWatch)

Corporate spending at record lows
The capital expenditure across the globe has been dismal for quite some time now. The emerging markets have observed the highest fall in corporate spending. That too at a time when the finance was available cheap! So what has been stopping companies from spending? Find out the same by clicking the link below picked from "The Economist". (The Economist)

Bond allocation- not necessary?
The Oracle of Omaha trusts the income streams coming from equities than bonds. Low allocation to bonds works well for him. Does it hold true for every investor? How about the rule of thumb that certain but meager proportion of your investments can be allocated to bonds for stable returns? Here is an interesting piece from Gurufocus that demystifies few myths about asset allocation. Click the link below to have a read... (GuruFocus)
