The poll result from The Wall Street Journal so far:
“More and more investors aren’t bothering to pore through corporate reports searching for gems and duds, but are trading big buckets of stocks, bonds and commodities based mainly on macro concerns. As a result, all kinds of stocks—good as well as bad—are moving more in lock step.”

“Oliver Stone’s uber-villain Gordon Gekko is back in the new film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which (surprise!) features greedy capitalists behaving badly. It might remind you of Avatar, Mission Impossible 2 or roughly a zillion other films in which capitalists destroy the environment, concoct killer viruses, harvest organs, and cover up murder in order to feed their lust of profit. Even when capitalism isn’t the primary target, the representatives of commerce are often flat-out repulsive (think Jabba the Hutt).
Perhaps it’s ironic that Hollywood filmmakers practice what they preach against. Sure he palls around with socialist dictators Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, but there’s no doubt Oliver Stone hopes to rake in obscene profits with his new flick.”
How about trying a food and wine combination you might not come across everyday? - Sparkling Russian red wine and Parmesan.
The sweet Abrau Durso wine is produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, has 45g residual sugar per litre, and is dominated by the smell of cherry stones. The winery is one of the oldest in the country; established in 1870. It is the only producer in Russia that uses Méthode Traditionelle - the same technique as in Champagne.
In Russia, they match it with meat and spicy curries.
Something that certainly will spice up the next dinner party – Bon Appétit! Courtesy of The Wall Street Journal Wine Blog.
