Bargain Hunter Bookmarks

Friday, January 25th, 2013

While the title of the blog is Cheap, Lazy Investing, the URL does start with money, and a friend of mine says that investing in one’s own happiness has the highest return. To that end, I check a series of sites everyday for bargains (and one just to get a daily drawing entry). They are listed below. The order is the order in which they were added to my daily check reminder and not any other order:

A Good Cheap, Lazy Strategy…Reference

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

In my IT blog and ezine articles I write quite extensively on things that I do instinctively, trying to codify them for others to replicate (and for the money and notoriety). On this blog, not so much. Honestly, I make it public hoping to help the reader. I originally also hoped for the reader to help me with comments, but that has yet to happen (not counting the semi-weakly offer of cheap Viagra).  But, I digress (mostly because it is fun).

What I came to blog today is a link to an educational article on planning how much to invest on given stocks. Ignoring the fact that I did better when I didn’t (because it was more a matter of when I didn’t rather than how I didn’t), I can honestly recommend reading it for your own education.

Reading Today Between the Lines

Seems to me this recession came in on an oil price spike and is going out the same way. Seems like 1978 – 1982 all over again.

The Santa Claus Rally is fairly regular. I was hunting around for ideas on picks for this Christmas when I ran across a convincing article for dropping lots of stocks that may peak around then, then pick them up in the following plummet.

Optional Options Offering Online

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

I know I need to learn more about options as an addition to my cheap lazy approach. Heavy on the cheap and light on the lazy, but compromise is nothing. When I do get around to learning more, one place I will go back to is this article on Investor Place I saw today.

Thar’s Gold in Them Thar Shills

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

The number of sites to take money from suckers is only slightly smaller than the number of suckers. Still,when it comes to investing, the good shills looking to get your money give you enough real stuff to get you to pony up for for the “rest of the story”. One good example is Buying a Beaten-up Stock at the Right Time and Right Price , which is an article aimed at getting you to pay for their predictive software that gives you a good education on what to look for even if you don’t buy. I don’t know how good their software is, but I do know their pitch has all the right moves.

Double Top Chart Pattern

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

While checking on Advance America, Cash Advance Centers Inc. (AEA), I ran across the term Double Top, which I had seen before. I found an excellent article explaining the pattern at Trending 123.
