Weekend Reading – Bitcoin, small-cap stock party, retirement past 65, ETF suggestions and more
Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition – I hope you had a good week!?
Here are my articles from the week that was:
The timeless investing advice of John C. Bogle, founder of Vanguard, is on display in his well-written Little Book of Common Sense Investing. The summary in 50 words and less: a portfolio constructed of index funds is the only investment that effectively guarantees an investor of their fair share of stock market returns.
Enjoy these articles and see you here again soon! Time to make my NFL predictions for week #14.
Here is an article about the new retirement era – working past age 65. From the article: “There are already plenty of examples of people working to 70. Almost 30 per cent of senior men at that age said they worked in 2015, as did 17.1 per cent of women. These people are the trendsetters for the era of delayed retirement.”
Bitcoin hasn’t replaced cash yet but investors don’t care. “The increasing value of bitcoin made it even less attractive as a way to pay for things. Most people don’t want to pay now with a dollar that could be worth twice as much next week.”
A Wealth of Common Sense wrote about the small-cap stock party that has been happening throughout 2017.

Ryan Modesto believes writing is important (when it comes to investing). I agree, but I’m biased because I run this site. Like Ryan, writing about my personal finance and investing tales (and woes) keeps me engaged, allows me test my theories, challenges the status quo including my assumptions, and hopefully helps others by offering a perspective. As long as this is fun, I’ll keep doing it.
Stay tuned to my blog because next week I’m giving away a book – just in time to send it in the mail to one lucky reader for the holidays. Thanks for being a fan – Mark
