Ponsi: That Was the Week That Was

In no particular order, here's a list of great stuff that appeared on Real Money and Real Money Pro this week:

  1. I really enjoyed Doug Kass's predictions for 2014. Doug provides his usual wit and wisdom, but unlike many prognosticators, he takes inventory of his predictions from the previous year.
  2. In a tough landscape for retailers, how does Macy's (M) manage to keep winning? Macy's does it with a "bankable" CEO and an outside-the-box approach, Jim Cramer explains.
  3. After years of disappointment, is it finally BlackBerry's (BBRY) time to shine? Don't laugh; Jim Collins explains how and why this company might surprise you in 2014.
  4. Gary Berman gives his ETF pick of the year. It seems counterintuitive but explains why mining companies could recover in 2014.
  5. Energy expert Dan Dicker hints at an end to the U.S. crude oil export ban, and at another massive increase in U.S. production.
  6. Bob Byrne wrote a series of articles on Real Money Pro about market profile and volume profile that are well worth your time. The 10-article series began on Dec. 20 with this introductory piece; the series ended yesterday. Dig into this great but overlooked method of technical analysis.
  7. Retail maven Stacy Widlitz explains why something that appears to be a negative for Best Buy (BBY) may actually be a positive.
  8. Toni Hansen reveals the big potential in a little-known name and provides insight into her trading and analysis techniques.
  9. Chris Versace fills us in on the latest from the Consumer Electronics Show.
  10. Finally, Tom Graff provides us with a fascinating look at wages and their affect on growth and inflation.
