DIY Investors Doomed By Their Lizard Brains – 01/10/11
From the article: In the wake of the subprime mortgage/derivatives meltdown of 2008, the average investor has been a wreck. For two years, disaster upon disaster struck the financial sector—landmark Wall Street firms going under, banks being taken over, government bailouts, steep declines in both the stock and bond markets and financial contagion spread globally. “When people saw the [stock] market go down 30%, their anxiety centers became more active,” says [Camelia] Kuhnen. “It made them more risk-averse. They decided to take money out of the market and put it into savings accounts.” The trouble is, once either our “reward” or “anxiety” center is shocked by an unexpected event, we tend to think things will never change.

Branding Breakthroughs – 01/07/11
From the article: In contrast, Internet portal Yahoo is one example of a once-hot, leading brand that lost its way, points out Tim Calkins, clinical professor of marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. Calkins notes that while Yahoo gained awareness as an innovator and leader, it strayed too far from its base into email and news—areas where it proved difficult to remain distinct. He credits Google for leveraging its brand image across related products, such as Google maps. Says Calkins, “The trick is not to go too far, like Yahoo did, and then be left with the question of what are we?”

Facebook may be open to new friends: Mark Zuckerberg's social networking site may go public by April – 01/07/11
From the article: While that news may be interesting for potential investors, it will be of little consequence to the millions of Facebook users who just want to update their statuses, said David Stowell, a clinical professor of finance at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. "I think [Facebook users are] agnostic to what happens, other than going public gives the company more access to capital," Stowell told the Daily News. "And with the capital raised, it can be used to fund [research and development] and expand features for users." That's only if everything goes according to plan – companies have been known to use their new influx of cash to make bad decisions, Stowell cautioned, like many of the dot-com bubble companies that went broke in the famed downfalls of the 90s and early 2000s.
