SMALL INVESTOR SUGGESTIONS
SOURCE:  J. Zweig, WSJ 12-10-11, p. B1
How small investors can get stomped
Article advises several noteworthy investment
axioms.  (1) avoid open-ended orders
That means no market orders.  Use “limit
orders with sell above a set price and buy below
a set price.”  (2) Confirm each trade and
immediately follow up and report errors promptly.

OFFICE POLITICS
SOURCE:  J. Pfeiffer, WSJ 10-24-11, p. R6
Don’t dismiss office politics– teach it
So many times I have heard and felt the
dislike of politics.  The use of influence without
formal authority or how power gets worked out
on a day to day basis are examples.  Data,
information, goals and issues play a role.  The
article touches on a proactive perspective that
politics is universal and can be taught.  Goal
oriented effective networking and understanding
how actions and behaviors are read and
interpreted.

Interesting perspective.
