Welcome to the July 13, 2009 edition of Festival of Stocks. The Festival of Stocks is a blog carnival dedicated to highlighting bloggers best posts on stock market related topics. Fat Pitch Financials is the actual birth place of this online weekly event, so it is always a special occasion when I get the chance to host this roving event. Here are this week’s Festival of Stocks participants:

Royal Orchid: Stock Analysis for Long Term Investment posted at TIPBlog.in. “The dividend rupees and dividend yield appeared very attractive.

It is about what future yield you can get.”
