Malaysian 2011 Budget – It’s All About Mega Projects

Instead of writing about just announced Malaysia’s 2011 Budget (*yawn*) I would rather spend some time writing about Apple Inc.’s (Nasdaq: AAPL, stock) earnings scheduled to be released on Monday, 18th Oct 2010. And if you’ve been investing the company’s stock or trading its options, get ready for the explosive earnings announcement. But then some […]

How Obama Wish the China’s Economy Is at His Backyard

While Federal Reserve is set to introduce QE-II (quantitative easing) because its near-to-zero interest rate could not wake up the crawling economy powerhouse, China has the opposite problem – economy overheating. How President Obama wishes he could have the best of both worlds; the China’s boiling economy and America’s presidency. China, the world’s second biggest […]

Can the Stocks Cross the River of 11,000 Today?

Whether Dow Jones can close this week above 11,000 or tumbles into the red depends on the much-awaited jobs report. Dow closed Thursday at 10,948.58, inches away from the psychological 11,000 level. The U.S. Labor Department will issue the final monthly jobs report before the midterm congressional elections. And economists couldn’t find any reason that […]

End of TARP Means Beginning of More Problems

One day after the stocks were dumped, it recovered with Dow up by 167 points, Nasdaq jump almost 50 points and S&P500 adds 21 points. It’s nice to see all the three indices up more than 1%. With all the good reports out today, it’s hard to believe the current month of October will be […]

Top 20 Stocks with Good Dividend Yield

Federal Reserve chief Alan Greenspan was right when he said the “most effective” economic stimulus is rising stock prices, instead of government spending. The stock market is indeed a barometer of how the average-Joes feel. But the stock market bull has to be as genuine as possible, meaning the so-called index rising was not due […]

China’s Proposal for Malaysia-Singapore High-Speed Train?

Whether you like it or not a high-speed rail system between Malaysia and Singapore is bound to happen, sooner or later. Except for ex-PM Mahathir and a bunch of racist politicians, it seems nobody would reject a shorter travelling time and a closer relationship with Singapore.
