    Dow 10,000? Try Dow 6,700.

    Dow 10,000? Try Dow 6,700. That’s the level of the Industrial Average if you look at in euro terms. 6,727 to be exact. And the following chart shows the not-so-fun ride foreign investors have taken in Dow stocks over the last decade. A European investor who bought the 30 Dow stocks 10 years ago in October 1999 when the Dow was almost exactly 10,000 is nowhere near breaking even though the Dow – as we look at it -- just broke through 10,000. That red line tells the whole story, and that decline is because of the dollar’s steady decline over much of the decade. A foreign investor converting euros into ... read more

    Everything But The Oink

    Five Real Estate Lies That Will Not Die

    I still hear them every day: Fallacies about buying real estate and putting money into property after you already own it.

Hallelujah. Amen. And then some. Nevertheless, there’s still so much bad bubble-era advice being doled out about real estate. Well, the ... read more

    Customer Service: The Best And The -- Well, I Don't Shop There Anymore

    Earlier this week I saw that J. Crew is going back to basics and focusing on its catalog business and Web site rather than its stores. Good thing. Based on my own experiences in its stores lately, the chain should keep the customers as far away from some of the staff as possible. The service is bad enough to tarnish the brand…permanently.
