The Motley Fool's CAPS investing service is another great way for investors to work together to beat the market. Among other features, CAPS lets users blog about their picks, investing strategy, market view, yesterday's lunch, or whatever floats their boat.
As CAPS blogging continues to catch on, players are adding more great content on a daily basis. I've dug through the past week's posts to find some of CAPS' best insights. With room for only seven posts here, I can't possibly cover all of the great stuff in the CAPS blogosphere, so when you're done here, I highly recommend checking out some more.
Now, more than ever, Costco?
What do high gas prices and tough economic times mean for your shopping habits? For CAPS blogger MaverickAtWork, it means more trips to everybody's favorite wholesale warehouse, Costco (Nasdaq: COST ) . Should investors be expecting a boost at Costco from shoppers like Maverick? Click through to her blog to get her take.
Look 20 years younger and double your money
Ready to bare it all? TMFSarahGen thinks you should be. Well, at least she thinks you should consider Bare Escentuals (Nasdaq: BARE ) . The stock has been beaten up since its too-hot-to-handle IPO, but according to TMFSarahGen, a very strong brand remains. Click here for the full story.
Microsoft vs. Yahoo!
CAPS All-Star devoish admittedly doesn't follow software king Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT ) or search giant Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO ) very closely. So why tune into his blog to read more about a deal that has been endlessly covered? Well, it has something to do with Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-B ) Warren Buffett and a broken toe. Click here to get the scoop.
Lowe’s and Home Depot
Both Home Depot (NYSE: HD ) and Lowe's continue to struggle. And with the housing market sloshing around in the toilet and consumers not really sure how the economy is going to shake out, it's not all that surprising. However, many think that now is the time to be buying these two giants, and CAPS blogger TheParadox is one of them. Head over to the blog to see why.
Rummaging around in the trash bin
Bottom-fishing doesn't always turn up aces, but there can be deals hiding out among the rubbish. In a recent blog post, WeeValue took a dive into the Dumpster and came up with gym equipment maker Nautilus. Take a trip to WeeValue's blog to read the full pitch.
A green bubble in renewable energy
In a recent blog post, PortugalInvest quips: "There are two similar features between the bubbles of soap and bubbles that build up in equity markets: both are transparent and when they blow, [whoever is] underneath gets wet, sometimes with water and sometimes with losses." Why bring this up now? Because this CAPS All-Star thinks that stocks like SunPower (Nasdaq: SPWR ) and First Solar are signaling a bubble in alternative energy stocks. Stop by his blog for the scoop.
And that's our round-up for this week. Be sure to check back next week for more great blogging action. In the meantime, why not head over to CAPS and add your two cents to the community pool?
