Flash Mob Etiquette: When to Go with the Flow… When to Say “No” (BusinessDictionary.com)

Should you ever find yourself in England suddenly swallowed whole by one of the many flash mobs that call Great Britain home, don’t panic. Don’t try to fight your way out…  Or cry your way out… Or buy your way out. Just go with the flow… Enjoy the moment and eventually the mob will spit you back out. However, as an investor, you cannot simply go with the flow.  Getting into or out of a stock because everyone else is doing so means that you’ve already missed the higher gains first-in players enjoy. As an investor, your best bet is staying one step (at least) ahead of the herd, like Nicholas Vardy and the Alpha Traders. To learn just how easily you can invest along with the world’s best investors — the Alpha Traders — and graduate to higher profits, click this link.

Filling 11 Million Jobs to Beat Back another Recession (YahooFinance.com)

Even though the country’s last Job’s report showed unemployment falling again to 7.8 percent, that drop doesn’t mean prospects for a fully employed America are getting any brighter. In fact, to return to the pre-recession employment peak of 2007, the country would have to add 4 million jobs.  But even that’s not the end of the story… For the labor market to return to the 2007 rate AND account for the increase in the number of U.S. citizens joining the work force since then, the United States would need to add 11 million new jobs. Even then, there’s still no guarantee that if those jobs appeared, America’s work force would be skilled enough to fill the positions. That’s why companies like Strayer Education, Inc. (STRA) look like robust opportunities for profits in 2013 — or for however long U.S. jobs remain unfilled.

GM to Break Image of the Car Maker for Successful Plumbers… (Bloomberg)

In just two days, on January 13, 2013, General Motors (GM) will unveil its new Corvette design (code-named C7). Both GM management and investors alike are hoping the new Corvette regains much of the swagger that the car apparently has lost – especially with Millennials (consumers aged 18-34).  Ed Welburn, GM’s chief designer, said that the latest Corvette design would be revealed along with 12 additional Chevy model revisions to shake some life back into its showrooms nationwide.  GM officials envision a vigorous shaking up of its existing designs to cost-effectively raise its market share from the 88-year low it hit in 2012. Unless the Mayans actually were predicting the end of Corvette, and not the earth! Investors will have a better idea after Sunday.
