With 2013 coming to a close, what better time to look back at our best research of the year?
After perusing our archives, however, there are just too many killer articles to put in one place.
So we’ve divided the year’s top articles into four distinct categories that we’ll broadcast throughout the week.
For today, we’re simply focusing on articles that you (our readers) read the most.
Killer Article #5:
The Bitcoin Scam Enters Hyperdrive Mode
Despite the obvious red flags surrounding the cryptocurrency, investors flocked to Bitcoin in a big way. Like Ice Cube says, though, you better “check yo’ self before you wreck yo’ self.” This article conveyed the latest reasons why Bitcoin is an utter disaster.

Nostradamus Predicted This Would Happen Today
You can’t look back on 2013 without talking about the government shutdown. We weren’t sucked into the hype, however. I knew that it wasn’t the biggest threat to our investments at the time. So the day after the shutdown hit, we were zeroing in on the only fundamental metric that was going to matter once the government shutdown ended.

Killer Article #2:
The Most Important (and Profitable) Technology Trend of Our Lifetimes
If you’ve followed my research for any length of time, you should’ve guessed exactly what I was talking about in that headline: mobile technology. Making an investment case for mobile tech isn’t hard. After all, one in every five people in the world owns a smartphone. One in 17 owns a tablet. (Remember, literally no one had these devices a decade ago.) And even the most novice investor understands the benefits of going where there’s growth. Am I right?
Killer Article #1:
Don’t Get Burned By This “Fed Taper” Lie
Since this article posted back in August – when all anyone wanted to talk about was “The Taper” – it’s not surprising that this attracted an outlandish number of readers. Good thing I was able to set the record straight!
That’s all for today!
