Navigating Sense on Cents

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 11th, 2009 7:29 AM |

As many people travel this weekend to be with friends and family, I would like to take an opportunity to navigate the highways and byways of links and material connected to Sense on Cents.

I hope this post will open more eyes and ears to wider avenues of information as we collectively try to make sense of the economy, markets, and world of global finance.

If I could beg your indulgence, if any of these links do not interest you but you feel they may help others, please pass them along. I thank you in advance.

With no further adieu, let’s travel around Sense on Cents . . .

Career Planning: I have always taken pleasure in providing career guidance. I provide a wealth of  Must Read articles from a variety of sources along with a Workshop for developing a game plan.

Market Data:  this page connects to real time market data from the Wall Street Journal. Every sector of the market is a mere point and click away. Stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities, economic data, international markets, historical graphs, and more…

Newsworthy: some stories have made headlines, while others are off the beaten path.  These stories come from your local papers and from posts around the world. I welcome sharing them with you.

No Quarter Radio: “Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle”  is my weekly Sunday evening radio program. I share insights and perspectives on the markets and economy while also hosting outstanding professionals from all corners of finance as my guests. All shows are archived and available as podcasts on iTunes. I also provide an audio player right here on Sense on Cents immediately after the completion of each show so that you can listen to a playback of the show right from this site.

The Reading Room is filled with a variety of books (pleasure, finance, inspirational, educational) that I have enjoyed and found impactful.

For those working their way up the learning curve (aren’t we all?), I have
Primers on the following topics:

Investing: anything you could ever possibly want defined or simplified.
Mortgage Market and Mortgage Finance
Financial Aid
Insurance
Debt Management

I also closely track a number of professional money managers, economists, and analysts. This collection of pro’s pros are my Economic All-Stars and include:

Laszlo Birinyi: outstanding equity manager and Wall Street veteran

Nouriel Roubini: highly acclaimed NYU economist

Jeff Gundlach: the highly acclaimed Chief Investment Officer of Trust Company of the West

Bob Rodriguez: along with his First Pacific Advisors colleague Tom Atteberry, named Morningstar’s 2008 Fixed Income Managers of the Year

Bill Gross: the highly acclaimed bond manager at Pacific Investment  Management Company

Greg Mankiw: widely respected Harvard Professor of Economics

John Mauldin: a true favorite of mine, this market analyst is amazingly well connected

Sheila Bair: the chair of the FDIC and, in my opinion, the preeminent regulator in the U.S. government today.

Carmen Reinhart: Professor of Economics at the University of Maryland

Thought Leaders: 22 of the finest economic minds in the world today  connected to Project Syndicate, an international association of 415 newspapers in 150 countries !!

If you are reading this post, I hope this trip has opened new avenues of interest for you. As the moderator, I actively engage readers, so please do not hesitate to ask questions and leave comments, or – as some may say –  sign the Guest Book!! Please share the site with friends, family, and colleagues.

Ultimately, I hope you enjoy coming to Sense on Cents as much as I do!

Have a blessed holiday ~

Mortgage Modification Guidance

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 14th, 2009 12:00 PM |

There is little doubt that there was massive fraud perpetrated by unsavory and unethical mortgage brokers during the housing boom.  I do not mean to paint all mortgage brokers with the same brush. As with any industry, there are a tremendous number of highly ethical people working hard to make an honest living. Regrettably, not everybody falls into that camp.

Our economy would be well served if both local and federal authorities worked harder to expose the criminals in the system, indict them, prosecute them aggressively, and make them pay a very stiff price for their actions.

Not too surprisingly, some of the same ilk that wrote fraudulent mortgages are now populating the mortgage modification industry. People need to be exceedingly careful in engaging those who seem to want to help them modify their mortgage. (more…)

Loan Sharks Not Welcome Here

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 5th, 2009 3:49 PM |

In the midst of this economic turmoil in which many people are increasingly cash constrained, a cottage industry has developed which preys on the most vulnerable in our society. This industry facilitates short term loans in exchange for the borrower’s paycheck or tax refund. 

The companies that participate in this lending should not only be outed but they should also be prosecuted for this activity.

Bloomberg writes how More Americans Turn to Tax Refund Loans to Pay Monthly Bills. With implied rates of interest on these loans from 50% to 500%, this is loan sharking at its worst!!  Where are the Better Business Bureau and Attorney Generals when you really need them?  (more…)
