Monday's Daily Blog Watch

Editor's note: Every morning, James Altucher presents the most timely, topical posts from the Web's best business blogs.

We all know education is a good investment. Here are the cheapest education stocks and why they make good buys now.


Yahoo! (YHOO) is all set to launch the new my.yahoo.com. I've used my.yahoo.com as my home page for the past 10 years so I'm excited, and nervous, to see changes.


Stockpick's System Trades of the Day includes new trades on Google (GOOG) and Palm (PALM) and a trade in a brand-new system for Pre-Paid Legal (PPD).

So I can see why all the activists are disappointed in the current offer for TOPP from Michael Eisner, the former CEO of Disney (DIS).


Clear AM blew my mind with this one. I thought Apple (AAPL) was onto something with the iPhone. But Clear AM takes a look at a recent patent filed by Google for the "Google Phone."


When I was a kid I used to love Friendly's (FRN). They've gone downhill ever since, and now 13D Tracker notes they are putting themselves up for sale. Good luck with that.


If you missed our complete Barrons Roundup yesterday, you can check it out here.


Dealbreaker offers some advice to the latest heir of the Rothschild family.


Information Arbitrage points out that in the gaming industry, Majesco (COOL) might not be so cool.


Mystery blogger Scott Rothbort believes Eddie Lampert's Sears (SHLD) might be making a move for BJ's Wholesale Club (BJ).
