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

Awesome! Well anyway,this Festival of Stocks will be of great help to every one especially those who are in the business industry.If only there would be festival in Disney Land then there will be many people that will be involve in the pursue of a more realistic view of it.$100 million is not enough for Walt Disney, NBC, and News Corp. Those are the three companies that own the popular movie streaming site, Hulu. They are now deciding to add a new service, Hulu subscription, or Hulu Plus. At first I was annoyed because I finally found a website that streams decent shows in good quality with little advertisements, and then I hear they will start charging a subscription fee! Hold on to your socks and do not freak out as quick as I did; the subscription services are expected to be also as the current free content. The differences are; you'll have access to more movies, more TV episodes, and a lot more content with the service you would be paying for. So don't get all worked up yet, the Hulu we have come to know and love should be staying the exact same, and nevertheless free.
