The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that bloggers disclose any interests and biases we may have. According to the rules if I blog for money or receive free stuff that is associated with anything that mentioned on my blog, I must disclose it.
From time to time, the Author and/or the Author’s clients may hold positions or other interests in securities mentioned in the Blog and may trade for their own account(s). This Blog contains opinions of the author and such opinions are subject to change without notice. The posts on this Blog are distributed for informational and entertainment purposes ONLY. Forecasts, estimates and certain information contained herein should not be considered as investment advice or a recommendation of any particular security, strategy or investment product. Past performance is not indicative of future results. The Author in no way guarantees any specific outcome or profit. Investments can lose money over short or even long periods of time. You should consult your financial advisor before making an investment decision.
Just to make things easier and less tedious, you should assume that for every recommendation, link, or product that I mention on my blog I will receive or have received some sort of compensation (either financially or non-financially). For example, Amazon product links. For every investment or company that I mention, assume that I hold shares or some other financial instrument (for profit), or that I have financial interest in it. For example preferred shares, common stock, warrants, or corporate debt of XYZ Corp.
Unfortunately, people need to write one of these, even for blogs:
