Is Italy back into recession?
Aug 14, 2014

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

Why does Warren Buffett like financials...

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is a self-made man. He built his portfolio over the years through disciplined investing. A careful analysis of his portfolio reveals that he was a big fan of financial stocks. He invested in Wells Fargo, Bank of America to name a few. But why is he so obsessed with financial stocks? Read on to find out more about it. (FinancialContent Services)

Poland's 25 years success story
Are you aware of the most remarkable success story of the last quarter century? No, it isn't about India or China. It is about Poland. Since the fall of communism on 19th August 1989, there has been no looking back for this country. Poland got few big things right and as a result has been a brilliant success. Stock markets too are yet to catch on to Poland's miraculous success story. To find out more about the riches of this country and the future prospects, do refer to the link below: (MarketWatch)

Paying interest in gold
How about earning interest in gold on the gold that you deposit with the bank? Sounds interesting right? Not really. There's a huge flip side to it. It could well turn out as a dodgy activity. That's because you are converting what had been someone else's capital into your own income. This is capital destruction on a massive scale. This is what the author, the president of the Gold Standard Institute USA, here believes. But what is more interesting is that the country's largest bank has been found quite proactively involved in a similar exercise. To get more color on the story, do refer to the link below: (SafeHaven)

Is Italy back into recession?
Is Italy back into recession? Unfortunately, yes. Dismal GDP performance says it all. The shrinking economy has raised concerns over the credibility of the government's growth strategy. And the prospects of recovery lay dim. To get into details with respect to the trouble brewing at the Italian economy, kindly refer to the link below: (The Economist)
