A debit card is paid immediately via a direct link to your bank account; how secure is that? Now there is another disadvantage coming from the Target breach ; ”JPMorgan Chase & […]

Today I watched a CNBC video with famous investor Leon Cooperman as a guest. He was asked ’what is he buying?’. Two of the new names he mentioned were ”Monetize” a mobile wallet company, and ”Technique” an LNG construction company. They didn’t give the stock symbols, so I had to do some gumshoeing to figure […]
