Chart of the Day -- Danaher, Monthly Chart
DHR closed at a new all-time high yesterday. Danaher's website is very nicely done, for what it's worth. You'd be surprised how many bad investments you can avoid just by visiting the company's website.

Free Stock Screens
I had no idea that MSN Money offers a free resource called "Stock Power Searches." Check out their Technical Screens ("technical screens search for stocks based on patterns in their price or volume") and Fundamental Screens ("fundamental screens focus on sales, profits, and other business factors of the underlying companies"). The lists are static - it would be great if you could resort them by column - nevertheless it's a great resource.

Instinet For Sale
Owner of Big Electronic Stock Trading System Is Said to Be for Sale, by Jenny Anderson:
"Archipelago Holdings, which runs the ArcaEx stock exchange, now controls almost a fifth of the volume in Nasdaq traded securities, and went public in August, raising $126.5 million. Archipelago Holdings now has a market capitalization of about $848 million, making it a likely suitor for the E.C.N.
Instinet was once considered the Goliath in the electronic trading world. Two years ago, Instinet Group bought Island E.C.N., which had supplanted Instinet as the fastest and most efficient electronic trading network. But the integration of the two companies proved challenging, and Instinet eventually split itself into two arms: Inet, which focuses on executing or completing trades, and Instinet, which is a broker-dealer for institutions."

Work Twice As Hard, Paid Half As Much
Hedge Funds: It's Still a Man's World, by Amey Stone:
"... Chilton doesn't have a mission to hire a lot of women. The high percentage of women stems from the firm's practice of recruiting top students from business schools. 'We go out and hire the best people we find on campuses and try to groom, retain, and train them. We are the ultimate meritocracy.'"

Fair and Balanced Financial News
Murdoch plans summer launch of new financial channel, by Harry Berkowitz:
"Rupert Murdoch said Tuesday he expects to launch his new Fox business channel next summer and that it will be easy to compete against CNBC ... Although CNBC's ratings have dropped sharply since the stock market bubble burst, it is very profitable, attracting a prime audience for advertisers."

Excerpt from the Dictionary of Religions, edited by John Hinnells:
"What lies at the root of fundamentalism is the belief that absolute reliance on a completely reliable and assured holy book will provide the doctrines (for Protestants), the practices (for Muslims, who draw on Qur'an and Shari'a) and the stories and prescriptions (in Judaism devoted to literalist use of Torah) in which believers will find identity, authority and purpose. They become instruments of the divine to work out God's intentions in the world. The world is sharply divided between the parties of good and evil, and thus between God and Satan, or Christ and Antichrist, or Allah's people and the infidel or imperialist."
