Posted on 27-10-2014I recently wrote an article about several technology startups that use a “gamified” approach to simulate stock investing, in order to teach novice investors about financial markets. New apps like CloudStock, TradeHero, and Stox appear to target members of the millennial generation. Users of these apps build portfolios with virtual money in order to learn about investment-related...
Posted on 22-10-2014I worked as a securities analyst on Wall Street for about twenty years. My last decade on the Street coincided with the emergence of the social web. The convergence of finance, technology, and social media has changed the way investors gather and share information. Yet many highly effective professionals on Wall Street are unfamiliar with important online tools that can inform their investment...
Posted on 09-10-2014I'm a very frequent LinkedIn visitor, and I love the website's user interface. But I'm the first to admit that the platform's algorithm occasionally spits out member updates with all the finesse of a loud belch at a Wall Street cocktail party. Most business professionals have found themselves on the wrong end of corporate restructurings at some point in their careers. As a result, we sometimes...

($HLT) attracted all the media attention one would expect for a trophy hotel deal.

Posted on 27-09-2014Wall-mounted televisions tuned to CNBC are a ubiquitous presence on Wall Street. It's a strange and ironic phenomenon, when you think about it. How many staff lounges in hospitals broadcast old episodes of Grey's Anatomy? CNBC has perfected a pantomime of the noise and action of Wall Street trading desks. Yet, for many of those who work in finance, the network's mimicry of Wall Street – its...
Posted on 19-09-2014Theme A few leading stock-broking companies in India, which set up operations a couple of decades ago, have evolved over the last decade or so. From being pure-play stock-brokers, most of them metamorphosed, initially into listed, full-service investment banks, and more recently into fully diversified financial services companies (FSCs). They also entered other fee-based financial services and...
Investing Isn’t only about “The Number.” Business journalists and investing bloggers have become fixated on anticipating and reporting corporate earnings relative to consensus expectations. Cable news pundits recount earnings reports as though they were sportscasters summing up last night’s game scores, with the “winners” and “losers” easily identified. However, the significance of company news can’t be boiled down to a single reported number... Read more
