Does 'buy and forget' always work for bluechips?
Buy and forget' is the mantra that many investors follow for bluechip stocks. The fact that these are big, widely owned and steady companies, make bluechip stocks the subject matter of investor trust. However, size does not always guarantee good returns when it comes to stock investing. And investors in America are learning it the hard way. Thos who though investing in Coca Cola, Walmart and IBM is the easiest way to build a Buffett like portfolio, are in for a rude shock. Read on to find out why tracking the earnings performance of even bluechips is critical. (Online.wsj)

Following Warren Buffett is easier said than done
We believe that no one simplifies the art and science of investing better than the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett.

Gold prices move dramatically and reach peaks & troughs post the hedging action undertaken by producers. Read on to know why and how this happens. (Thecrux)
