Weekend Reading – Dividend hikes, tax deadlines, TFSAs and so much more

Welcome to some fine Weekend Reading friends!

After some travel I’ve now turned my attention to staining our deck and working on our garden for spring.  We hope to put our deck stain down tomorrow after we spent a few hours today sanding our deck.  It will be great to sit on and enjoy this finished product.

Last time I posted some Weekend Reading articles for you my #Sens still had hope for round two of the NHL playoffs.  We all know by now their season is done.  The boys had a great run and I’m proud of what the team accomplished on a such a small payroll – great value for money actually – a business principle that is also a personal finance principle.  On that note I hope you find and enjoy what you value this weekend.  I’ll be back on Sunday or Monday with my take on the Conservative’s fulfilled promise to increase the annual contribution limit (to $10,000) for the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA).  I’m sure you have something to say on that as well so stop by for a visit soon.

Enjoy your weekend!

Here are some excuses for not doing your taxes on time courtesy of Big Cajun Man. The Leafs not making the playoffs isn’t one of them either.

A reminder I prefer to think of the TFSA as a Tax Free Retirement Account (TFRA).

It’s absolutely nuts what $1 million buys in Toronto these days.  Great article Kerry.

Lastly I liked Steadyhand’s take borrowing to invest, or more specifically, their take on Warren Buffett’s view on borrowing to invest.  From Buffett:  “Market forecasters will fill your ear but will never fill your wallet.”

Have a great weekend!

  1. The Vancouver Canucks had a pretty disappointing way to finish the season, just like the last few years. Oh well, here’s to a better next year.

    Have a great weekend Mark!

  2. Mark,

    Thanks for including me!

    Sorry to hear your team’s season is over. Always next year. 🙂

    Have a great weekend over there. I’m in Omaha for the BRK meeting. I’ll try to say hi to Buffett for you!

    Best regards.

  3. The Leafs not making the playoffs has been implied to me by a few die hard fans, but they usually get their taxes in on time, but the other excuses? Seriously? Wow…

    Thanks for the inclusion and enjoy the glorious weekend ahead
