One year ago today, Charles Nenner (of the Charles Nenner Research Center) went on TV. His specialty is Cycle Research (whatever that is). He made a very bold call, forecasting a drop to 5,000 in the Dow.
It was not merely that the 50% drop did not come pass. What happened was the opposite, a 32% rally. And so, one year later, we have to recall this prognostication as one of the very worst of the year. The calls on Apple and Intel and Semis were nearly as bad.
Worst call of 2013:

Prior to viewing the video below, I suggest you read these three posts (in this order):
• The kinda-eventually-sorta-mostly-almost Efficient Market Theory (November 20th, 2004)
• Random Walk and Outperforming Fund Managers (July 19th, 2006)
• How Shiller helped Fama win the Nobel (October 26th, 2013)
In 2008, Eugene Fama made a video for the American Finance Association on the history of the efficient markets hypothesis.

Businesses can’t wait for drone rules to be issued by the FAA. They really can’t. Estimates on business drone usage are in the tens of thousands…and they’re overwhelming the FAA, which is still trying to come up with rules for flying them. Megan Hughes has more on the unregulated drone boom.

Bloomberg’s ace data visualization team crushes it again; this is an awesome primer:
At the heart of the European debt crisis is the euro, the currency that ties together 17 countries in an intimate manner. So when one country teeters on the brink of financial collapse, the entire continent is at risk. How did such a flawed system come to be? Bloomberg Television and Jonathan Jarvis present “The European Debt Crisis Visualized.”
