Weekend Reading – Investing success, minimalist principles, risk tolerance and more

Welcome to another Weekend Reading edition.  This week I wrote about some investing truths, 7 ways men and women see retirement differently and my life in a box.  Well, not literally in a box but metaphorically speaking or rather writing about boxes and financial obligations.  Anyhow, just check out the post :)

I hope you enjoy some of my favourite articles from the week that was.

See you here next week!

Frugal Trader offered some sound advice for investing rookies searching for investing success.

SPF wrote about minimalist principles.

Dan Bortolotti wondered if you really know your risk tolerance.  I suspect the next financial crash or major correction of 20% or more will test newer investors, especially those that embrace dividend investing.

The expert team at LSM Insurance posted my article disability insurance, a must read folks.

DGI shared his favourite dividend articles for the month.

Rob Carrick told us what happens if your broker goes broke.

The Passive Income Earner wrote about limit orders.

Big Cajun Man shared some financial anarchy days.   You forgot every commercial holiday.

Michael James on Money has some insight for readers wondering if the stock market will continue to soar.

Dividend Stocks Rock wrote a monster post about avoiding high-yield stocks and instead, sticking to a few blue-chip household names.

Y&T provided a nice review about new and improved Canadian MoneySaver, saying “I’m happy to say that this new version isn’t your grandpa’s CMS.” (Canadian MoneySaver).

Last but not least, just another reminder about my friend’s crowd-funding initiative to raise funds for her cool new product designed to keep pets safe.  Check it out when you can.

  1. FESTIVAL!!!!!!

    Thanks for the inclusion this week and the good fellowship at dinner, good times. Where did the summer go by the by?

  2. It’s a good thing markets dropped yesterday — I was starting to think about leverage :-)

    Thanks for the mention.

    Isn’t that the best way to invest, lots of borrowing? :)

  4. Mark says:

    I hear ya…time flies. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Thx for the mention Mark! I hope you enjoyed the beer yesterday, I did the same thing with wine 😀 hehehe!

  6. Lots of great reads in those mentions. I had not read all of them before, but I did get some new information.

    The one about “What protection do you have if your broker goes broke?” was good. Hopefully Fidelity stays solvent. Even if I am insured, I don’t want to deal with the fallout.

    The beer was great :)

    Yes, it would be nice to avoid any fallout! Thanks for stopping by.
