Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries (and sometimes longer ones) of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.

Follow up:

  • Ten stocks for the next 25 years (John Melloy, CNBC) Hat tip to Marvin Clark. Jim Cramer's list is heavy on tech with a smattering of apparel, leisure, water and health. Energy (at least not directly, there is one company that could become a major energy company although not much in that area today), financial services, industrial, media/communications and basic materials sectors do not make the list. Caution: Remember the "Nifty Fifty" of the late 1960s and early 1970s? See discussion article 'behind the wall'.
