This blog seeks to provide pertinent facts and independent, truly unbiased and often contrarian thinking for investors.
I strive for objectivity. This is not a forecasting game. It is a game of probabilities, risk vs reward, which we play according to our own personal situation that dictates our individual level of risk aversion.
The Edge comes from seeking and objectively analysing timely and pertinent information to get better investment insights. The Odds are the probabilistic relationship between risk and reward at any given moment in time. Combining a good edge with the right odds is the winning formula. This is what this blog and its predecessors since 2009, New$-To-Use and Bearnobull, are all about.
Watch this video to better understand the financial scout in me (particularly relevant after the 8:00 minutes mark although all eleven minutes are interesting):
The Daily Edge post provides readers with a continuous and organized flow of pertinent news and views on the most important trends in economy and finance.
I also post regularly on equity markets valuation and occasionally on other matters of interest to investors, pointing out poorly researched analysis and biased reporting on the part of the media and brokerage community when I see it.

Please make sure you read this disclaimer: This blog contains facts, views and opinions posted essentially for my own personal needs. In effect, all the work behind this blog is for my own needs for pertinent facts, thorough and objective analysis and appropriate risk assessment.

I have been involved in the investment business since 1975. Now retired, I have been blogging since January 2009. From 2006 to 2008, I was Equity Manager for a hedge fund organization. Between 2002 and 2006 I was chairman of the equity investment committee for a large pension and mutual fund investment organization.
My career began in 1975 as a financial analyst for a brokerage company where I also served as head of research between 1979 and 1984. During the next 18 years, I have been in charge of equity investments for several investment organizations.
