Festival of Stocks - April 5, 2010
Welcome to the April 5, 2010 edition of Festival of Stocks. The Festival of Stocks is a blog carnival dedicated to highlighting bloggers best posts on stock market related topics. I believe this is the first time that the Festival of Stocks has actually been hosted at Value Investing News. Value Investing News hosted the archives and homepage of the Festival of Stocks, and given that we are just about finished a major spring cleaning project here, that it would be nice to host a festival. I hope you enjoy this week's submissionsL
