This week’s Festival of Stocks is up at Stock Geek. My article on Berkshire Hathaway’s stock holdings as of December 31, 2006 was included in this week’s Festival. While I was going through this week’s Festival of Stocks, I enjoyed reading SINLetter’s article on Nautilus (NLS). The Ineligant Investor also did a great job researching Love Partners and their involvement with Lifetime Brands (LCUT).
This week’s Carnival of the Capitalists is hosted by SimplifyThis. I’m glad to see that this week’s host, Sanjay Kumar, is emphasizing quality over quantity. The Carnival of the Capitalists is apparently following the path that the Festival of Stocks chose when it started. The Carnival of the Capitalists is now screening submissions for quality. I’m glad to see that other blog carnivals are starting to come around to focusing on quality.
Finally, the Carnival of Personal Finance is being hosted by Stock Market Beat this week. I found the post of the week, “What Happens When a Bank Goes Out of Business“, to be a timely read. I expect we’ll see more bank failures as a result of the fallout from the housing slow down. It’s good to learn now how the FDIC has responded to previous bank failures.
