►Big Divergence – Major indices are hitting new highs while many of the underlying stocks are hitting one month lows.

►Bad Year For Hedge Funds – More redemptions and closures for the elite hedge fund cohort.

►Stock Ownership – The percentage of stock ownership hits the highest level since the late 1990s.

►Inflation Panic Is Dead – Krugman articulately writes “inflation panic is, you know, so last week.”

►Lionizing Legends – Batnick argues that people put far too much weight on the views of investment legends.

►Back To The City – With workers being asked to come back to the office, will we see the suburban real estate market cool off?

►Saving Too Much – A viewer asks for any advice on to how to approach potentially over-saving for retirement.

And much more!
