Weekend Reading – Saving is future income, dividend increases and more

Hi all, and welcome to your Weekend Reading list.  I had a few posts this week:

Some big fat myths about critical illness insurance,

I reached a new milestone with dividend income, and

I shared Part 1 of my interview with Peter Hodson.  Part 2 will be posted next week.

Here are some of my favourite articles from this past week – have a great weekend!

Freedom Thirty Five Blog said his savings are his future income.

The Dividend Blogger shared some more dividend increases this month.

Money We Have is going to ignore RRSP-generated tax refund advice and spend his refund.

Rob McLister, my go-to-guy for mortgage rates and mortgage news, said anything over a five-year fixed term is a mortgage dog now.  Check out his thoughts on today’s mortgage market here.  Based on where fixed rates are today, if you intend to stay in your home, a five-year term seems like a safe insurance bet.

Big Cajun Man wrote about debt payments.

LSM Insurance told us about Bill 157, which would establish a Financial Advisors Act if passed.

Robb Engen was more assertive with Telus, and got a 42” TV because of it.

Michael James on Money told us replicating iShares ETF XIU is hard to replicate, from a cost perspective.

Carl Richards channelled Warren Buffett in his recent post:   “It reminds me of my favorite Warren Buffett quote:  “Benign neglect, bordering on sloth, remains the hallmark of our investment process.”

Passive Income Earner gave us a list of 2014 Canadian dividend aristocrats.

Susan Brunner reviewed Emera.

Preet Banerjee reminded us that poor financial advice is everywhere, not unlike other professions as well.

  6. Great list mark, enjoyed those articles. I’ve posted up trading and investing in the RRSP and TFSA and how i use them, hopefully i didn’t get any of my facts wrong :) cheers

  7. For getting discount on cable bill I like to suggest you 2 steps to follow->
    Step1: Cancel cable Service.
    Step2: No more steps after 1st step 😉
    I think those who are working person they have not so much time for TV. We get very little time for entertainment. Why not enjoy those programs through internet? I like to enjoy my favorite programs on internet with single payment. Most of programs uploaded in youtube. So it’s a best option in my view.
