Dick Green in the Media
Q & AQ: You founded Briefing.com nearly 20 years ago. How has the company evolved through the years?
|A: Briefing.com was founded in 1993 to provide active market participants with analysis to help them make more informed investment and trading decisions. Briefing.com was one of the first Internet products to deliver live market coverage, and we have maintained our premier position over the past two decades. The product has increasingly focused on proprietary analysis, ranging from rapid commentary on earnings reports to in-depth analysis of changing global consumer demand and the impact on individual companies.|
Q: You recently started writing again for The Big Picture and Page One columns. Why did you decide to pick that back up?
|A: Briefing.com helps traders make rapid, informed decisions, but also helps investors understand the undercurrents that create long-term value. I have recently begun writing Page One and The Big Picture again in an effort to help investors through what have been a few difficult years. Despite the vicissitudes of the market, stocks have provided excellent returns even in recent years. For example, the market is up over 100% in the past three years. My goal is to help investors through the difficult times to benefit from the potential rewards of sound investing.|

A Little Bit of History -- Repeating?
The previous Big Picture column provided data to show that stocks are as cheap on a relative basis as they have been for the entire thirty-plus years of your author's career. There are reasons for this. Everyone "knows" that stocks are a risky investment and that economic and global conditions will limit stock gains in the years ahead. Just like in 1979...
Value in Dividend Plays
Europe may slowly implode. That could cause problems for the financial sector, and the broader global economy. Even in the face of such developments, there are many blue-chip, dividend-paying stocks that are likely to provide excellent value over the long term, while providing a very high relative yield in the short term...
