Ponsi: That Was the Week That Was

Below are 10 great articles that appeared on Real Money/Real Money Pro this week:

  1. Jim Cramer explains why Google's (GOOG) purchase of Nest makes sense, using insights he gained while interviewing Home Depot's (HD) CEO. If you trade stocks or own a home, you'll want to read this.
  2. Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) intends to become one of the top five in the pharma space within the next three years. Herb Greenberg digs deep into the company's aggressive growth strategy and the risks therein.
  3. Want to know where stocks are headed next? Helene Meisler explains why stock traders need to pay close attention to the Japanese yen. Intermarket analysis at its best.
  4. Scott Redler's column is chock full of technical setups, both bullish and bearish. These eight charts provide a wealth of actionable information.
  5. It is widely assumed that Fed tapering will be good for the dollar and bad for gold. Mike Norman explains why the exact opposite may be true.
  6. Dan Dicker gives his overview of the energy markets, then opines on seven different companies within that sector. Dan provides a ton of information in this succinct article.
  7. If you'd like to see what a clear, concise trading plan looks like, check out Paul Price. Paul unveils a detailed plan designed to capitalize on this week's plunge in Best Buy (BBY) shares.
  8. Some traders have a hard time differentiating between a company, its products and its stock. Martin Tillier explains why he likes Tesla Motors (TSLA) as a company but not so much as an investment.
  9. The world has changed, and value investing has changed along with it. Tim Melvin spans the globe in his quest for value.
  10. Finally, the recent decline in long-term Treasury yields has had an effect on the interest-rate-sensitive REIT sector. Several contributors weighed in -- including Robert Moreno, who discusses a positive technical pattern he has located in several widely traded REITs, and Toni Hansen, who shares her picks in the mortgage REIT subsector.
