Thanks to Om Malik for listing The Stalwart in his "Ten Blogs I Must Read", a list you should read if you want to find some very interesting tech blogs. It's particularly flattering since Om says that he follows up to 400 different feeds--a number that makes you realize how much better and bigger the tech-blog scene scene is than the finance/stock-blog scene.
Frankly, most finance blogs are pretty weak. Daily Dose of Optimism had a very good post recently about them that you should read. His conclusion is that there are a handful of decent investing blogs, while there are tons of useless trading and personal finance blogs that are either boring or useless. I agree. There are several reasons why there aren't many good ones, I think which will be saved for another post. In the meantime here are The Stalwart's "10 Must Read Blogs"
- The Capital Spectator--Excellent Macroeconomic analysis. Covers Bonds, Oil, Stock Markets, etc.
- Jeff Matthews--A blog written by a hedge fund manager that knows how to think about stocks. A great writer as well.
- Marginal Revolution--By Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok of George Mason University. The best economics blog.
- Om Malik--Business 2.0 writer, checking the pulse of tech and the silicon valley.
- Footnoted--Searches through the fine print of corporate filings to bring questionable activities to light. Much like The Stalwart in tone.
- Brad Setser's Web Log--More good macro stuff, focuses on international finance, particularly trade with China.
- Barry Ritholtz--Good writing on markets and the economy from the only decent thing to come out of TheStreet.com
- In The Pipeline--Researcher Derek Lowe talks about the pharmaceutical industry.
- Danwei--An amusing blog about media in China.
- Autoblog--All the car news that can fit.
So, that's the list. Like Om, I read several more. You can check my blogroll for some others, and I'll always be posting links to good blogs as a I find and see them. Thanks for reading.
