On Friday File: Lessons for a Volatile Week (plus two buys)

On Ian Wyatt's "Collect Your 41% Dividend Before Thanksgiving!"

On "You’ll Never Guess Which BIG American Bank is Going Bankrupt NEXT" (Lombardi)
Maybe I should make my point clearer. Although the Canadian banks are pretty strong, if there is a shake out in the financial industry, it is likely that all financial institutions will get tarred with the same brush.[...]
On "You’ll Never Guess Which BIG American Bank is Going Bankrupt NEXT" (Lombardi)

On "Rob the Kremlin" with Teeka Tiwari
I think that LNG is a good idea, but I worry whether or not LNG tankers are more or less secure than overland pipelines. Should we be worried about whose best interests would be served by blowing up LNG tankers? Maybe not even blowing them up, maybe hija[...]
