3 Diamonds and a Dog #1

Feb 21, 2012 by

This post kicks off a series I thought I’d try out, at least until I get sued or beat up.

A lot of smart people are creating online content about making better money choices, and that’s what Money Counselor is about too. Because I’m a debt/credit/budget/investing/money nerd, I see much of this stuff. In this series, I’m going to pick three items—could be a post, a website, a video, an image—each week that I think would be especially valuable—the Diamonds—in helping Money Counselor readers make better money choices.

Naturally I also sometimes come across content that in my view is, well, just plain lame. And it’s not always on CNBC. Although a lot of it is. So to balance the three Diamonds, I’ll include just one lame-o—the week’s Dog.

3 Diamonds

A Dog

  • The guy who recommended on CNBC buying Lehman Brothers stock 25 days before the firm filed for bankruptcy is still doling out investment advice. Here he’s on Bloomberg, but he remains an esteemed regular on CNBC too. You’d think a boo-boo like that would haunt an analyst. Naaah—let’s let bygones be bygones, it was only a multi-billion dollar mistake.

Nominations Please
