Below are some of the best reads for investors from around the Web:

So Marc Faber, why don't you tell us how you really feel? "When I look at the U.S. I can't figure out how they are going to solve their problems."
I picked this post because "Stock Market Experts" clearly are on this list: the six most statistically full of s**t professions." Wine tasters are another one.
___________Lessons learned from a 21-year-old lottery winner.
Go Bill Miller! Bill thinks stocks are going to melt up.
Which companies are advertising in the Super Bowl? These are often good stock picks over the next year.
