Re: That Walls Street Website is for people with financial braincancer.
>>Why do they put STOCKTICKERS behind COMPANY NAMES IN THE ARTICLE?
You still get an upvote, but have you not ever read the Wall Street Urinal? They've been doing that for a very long time, since the advent of ticker symbols over telegraph in the late 1800's. Its still just a PR outlet and a place for overpaid analysts to vent their spleens and make an ungodly amount of money while they're at it. I invest and have since I was 17, but I don't think I've ever made money on something the FT, Bloomberg, or WSJ recommended. The Economist's much better for picking industries apart and finding the gems among the turds even though they're mostly a foreign policy rag anymore.
But again, you get an upvote for the link about China and a coming default, China's shadow banking will be its undoing, all of their banks (including their multinationals like HSBC that should really know better) issue their own off the books currency and loans. If China manages to avoid a default and economic collapse rivalling the US-European financial collapse of 2008, I will be very surprised.
