AlephBlog.com is David Merkel’s investment blog. If you read TheStreet.com or Realmoney.com you probably recognize his name. He has been a contributor since 2003. He primarily writes about stock and bond portfolio management. He started the blog so that he could do have more one on one interaction with readers and do less structured writing. So while he mainly cover equity and bond portfolios he can now talk about anything he wishes.
If you click on his investment books from which I have benefited page you will notice right off the bat that he is primarily a value investor. The Intelligent Investor, The Aggressive Conservative Investor, Value Investing, and Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits are books that are and should be on every serious investors bookshelf.
Looking at his categories the top four things that he writes about are Stocks, Macro Economics, Portfolio Management, and Bonds. His writing style is easy going and not very confrontational. He lays out valid points for almost everything he writes and figures that if you like it you will keep reading and if you don’t you will move on. In this reviewers opinion his blog is a nice break from all of the (absolutely no shame at all) self promoters out there.
If you want common sense investment advice and wisdom then you should make the AlephBlog.com a regular stop and add it to your RSS reader. David Merkel is a investor that happens to be a good writer and is worth listening to.
