A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

A chrestomathy of sorts

Well, if it is not one thing, then it is another. And while I might not be here blogging away as usual, the markets continue... to open, to trade, and to trend. Which, I suppose, proves the point I make in post after post.

And while I lacked the time to write comments re the markets, I continued to share via other methods; specifically, this blog's sidebar. This post shines the spotlight on four excellent sites that merit your attention; there are many, many others. Find them all in the sidebar on the left side of this page.

1) Portfolio Management and Financial Tutorial
"Asset Allocation and Portfolio Management are the process of determining optimal allocations for the broad categories of assets that suit your investment time horizon and risk tolerance."

Excellent primers and tutorials that offer the rudiments, and more, of money management.

Quantifiable Edges
"Assessing Market Action With Indicators And History"

Another excellent site. This one analyzes (current) market conditions via filters that sometimes are statistical, sometimes scientific, but always historical; indirectly squashes 'analysis' founded on emotional responses.

Going Private
"The Sardonic Memoirs of a Private Equity Professional"

The author's insider insights into markets, both private and public, are dependably spot-on correct. "Sardonic," yes, but also irreverently witty, and many times laugh-out-loud funny.

4) Phil’s Favorites
"I’ll be posting interesting reading material for Phil's Stock World from a collection of Phil’s favorite websites"

In truth, this excellent site wholly is the result of Ilene Carrie's vision. Ilene saw the need for a site that was more than a mere repository of links to that day's articles and commentaries of interest, so she created a sorta-kinda chrestomathy. (Not literally, but darn close!) Ilene's site has become more than a must-read for me; it is indispensable.

Please share your favorite sites as a comment reply, or email them (along with a brief description of why you like it/them).
