Monday's Personal Finance stories

By MarketWatch




Don't miss these top stories:

Whenever you get into a discussion with someone about whether government should regulate business, bring up the case of the airlines and their idea that somehow it is good business to load people into a sardine can, taxi them out onto an airport tarmac and then let them idle there indefinitely waiting for permission to (eventually, or so you are told) take off.

If you've ever been in that situation -- and there have been thousands of folks stranded like that over the years, some for nine hours -- and especially if you have been in that situation and traveling with children, you know what you were screaming when you finally got released: "There ought to be a law against that!"

Well, now there is. The U.S. Department of Transportation says that such delays will no longer be permitted to run more than three hours before airplanes must return to a terminal and let passengers out. The airlines, oddly, claim this rule will lead to more passenger inconvenience. With logic like that, you can see where regulation comes in handy.

There was a time when if you got stuck like that the flight attendants would break out some free drinks and food for everyone, easing at least some of the tension. Now you'll be lucky if they don't charge you a second baggage fee to reload your luggage and double the price of the onboard food to make up for their added hassle of letting you off the plane.

TRAVEL

U.S. says airline passengers are free to depart after 3 hours

In a victory for proponents of passenger rights, the Department of Transportation said Monday it would cap at three hours the length of time a plane can sit on the tarmac during flight delays.

Airlines still struggle for international business travelers

A modest recovery in world trade helped lift passenger numbers slightly on international flights during October, driven by demand in economy-class seating, the International Air Transport Association said.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Diamond discounts won't outlast the holiday season

The holidays can be a romantic time and there will be plenty of guys popping the question along with the champagne corks in the next few weeks. And if you'll need a diamond to go along with that proposal, now is the time to buy.
See Holiday Gift Guide.


Upscale jewelry shows surprising signs of life

It's considered among the most non-essential items that shoppers can do without, and yet it may turn out to be a winner this holiday season. As retailers across the board are still struggling to get consumers to spend beyond what they need, affluent consumers are giving a troubled sector -- jewelry -- a ray of hope.

INVESTING

Commodities don't diversify stock-market risk as much as believed

As stocks retreated and recovered over the past 15 months, commodities investments have moved in step with the U.S. market. That wasn't supposed to happen. Investing in commodities has been pushed as a useful way to cushion portfolio risk. In truth, the performance of commodities and stocks is now closely related, shredding the promise of diversification and strapping investors to the market's wild roller coaster.
See Weekend Investor.


Trading the Treasury yield curve with ETFs

Exchange-traded funds can be used for complex trades, and one strategy garnering attention is using fixed-income ETFs to profit from a steepening or flattening U.S. Treasury yield curve.
See ETF Investing.


More Lump of Coal Awards for a naughty fund industry

The market may have bounced back in 2009, but it wasn't for any lack of misbehavior, misguided thinking and outrageous maneuvering in the fund business. Despite the overall positive performance of funds this year, there's plenty of material for the 2009 Lump of Coal Awards.

Overpriced DreamWorks stock more likely to reel than roll

The one thing you know about a DreamWorks movie is that it has a happy ending. The same thing can't necessarily be said for DreamWorks stock. While the public likes what the company does and is attracted to any company that believes in happily ever after, buying DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. at this point would be putting your heart ahead of your head, and would be a Stupid Investment of the Week.

HEALTH CARE

Health-care vote 'big victory,' Obama says

A razor-thin procedural vote in the Senate advancing a sweeping health-care bill was a "big victory" for Americans, President Barack Obama said Monday, as senators were on track to pass the White House-backed overhaul later this week.

 EAGLE PEAK RESOURCES INC.
2009 Year-end Tax Credit Opportunity
Metal Mountain Resources Inc.
Flow-Through Shares



FUNDS MUST BE RECEIVED BY
METAL MOUNTAIN RESOURCES (MMR)
NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 30, 2009



Dear Friends:

Why Invest Flow-Through Money in MMR?
Eagle Peak Resources Inc. (EPR) recently transferred the following British Columbia projects to its associated company MMR:
1) the Big Onion Property (Near term production - Notice of application for permit approving the mine plan and reclamation program has been filed – Estimated production start 1st Qt 2010);
2) the Dome Mountain Project (Near term production);
3) the Silver Vista Property (Exploration/Development Phase).
Flow-through funds raised will be applied to the advanced exploration of these projects.
In addition Zhong An Real Estate Limited (www.zafc.com/en/index.html) has signed a Letter of Intent with EPR to continue negotiations with regard MMR's projects and specifically • Joint Venture of the Dome Mountain Project and • the Purchase of the Big Onion Property.
Zhon An is listed on the Hong Kong Exchange and is one of the leading real estate developers in the Greater Yangtze River Delta region.
Together with the tax-benefits (see tax-benefit memorandum) this certainly is an excellent risk/reward investment opportunity. However, you have to act quickly and by December 30, 2009 if you wish to take advantage of the offered tax-benefits.
The start of mining at MMR's Dome Mountain gold/silver project and a potential sale of its Big Onion copper/molybdenum project are setting the stage for a very exciting start in 2010 for the Company.
You have got to be in it - - - to win it!
Metal Mountain Resources ‘a timely Investment' - - -
Stay Tuned!!
