New Column up at Real Money (01/02/08)

Wednesday, January 02, 2008 | 10:15 AM

RealMoney My year end review of the lessons provided by 2007 is now up at Real Money.

The details are at the subscription only site, but here are the bullet points:

• Ignore market rumors
• Buy sector strength (Corollary: avoid weak sectors): 
• Never blindly follow the “Big Money”  (a/k/a Professionals make dumb mistakes also):
• Day-to-day stock action is noise
• P/E matters less than you think
• Ignore deteriorating fundamentals at your peril
• Nothing is more costly than chasing yield
• Know what you own
• Simple is better than complex
• Stick to what you do best
• Fess up!
• Risk management matters
• The Trend is still your friend

Its on the subscription only site, but I will try to get it moved to the free TheStreet.com section tomorrow . . .

A sneeze at USA caused Economy Contraction at Singapore!!

Singapore quarterly GDP contracts 3.2%!!

Funny that their stock market is still close to all time high. Maybe they have learned a page from Bernanke + Paulson to "inject" their market, and ABOLISH stock market contraction.

By the way I can assure you 110% that Singapore is a country that would consider pooh of USA tasty, i.e. they are dogs of USA.
