I’m now in the 1,300-year-old Tibetan Town, in Dukezong in Yunnan province, southwest China. A mix of mostly Tibetan Buddhists and Muslims, the area, with its dramatic scenery inspired the fictional paradise of Shangri-La described in the 1933 novel “Lost Horizon” by British author James Hilton. To say the surroundings of mountains, streams, sheep, yack, Tibetan Monks and Imams is…

It’s a bird, it’s a plane — it’s Super-Dollar, soaring higher into the investment stratosphere and rattling the cages of U.S. multinationals with its sonic booms. The damage is getting serious: The percentage of NYSE stocks above their 50-day moving average has declined to just 47 percent. And this is not a matter of a bunch of nobodies getting hurt.…

It has the power to wreak more havoc than 9/11, bring down more governments than the Arab Spring, sabotage more foreign economies than the debt crisis, and drive more flight capital to U.S. markets than the crisis in Greece or the conflict in Ukraine. But when…

Here’s one from Sunoco Logistics Partners (SXL, Weiss Ratings: C), one of my favorite storage and pipeline master limited partnerships for the long-term. The company said it would sell 13.5 million shares (about $550 million at recent prices) to raise money for corporate purposes.
