It’s something of a tradition in all financial media to do predictions at this time of year. The more predictions you make the fewer predictions people tend to remember – this can be a good or bad thing depending on your prophetic powers.

Anyway, I’ll stick to just one country and one stock. The country is Ireland and the stock is Bank of Ireland (IRE).

We’ll see how that pick does for 2008 – hopefully, I won’t look too stupid on January 1st, 2009.


I’m planning some changes for the site. I’d appreciate any feedback about what you love or hate about this site. It should help me plan for the future. If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time – or if you remember the podcast – I’d appreciate any comments you have. Please email them to me.
