By Robert Barker

Each Friday morning in BW Online's Daily Briefing, you'll find, a column (formerly called Your Money) by Business Week personal finance specialist Robert Barker. It's devoted to you: How you not only can make more money but also how you can save that other precious asset, time. Whether it's mutual funds, stocks, your 401(k) plan, or taxes, Bob likes to get behind the big names and latest trends on Wall Street to find out what's really going on -- so you can become a smarter investor. Bob also writes a weekly feature, called the Barker Portfolio, for BW magazine's Business Week Investor section.
