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.

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.

DGI shared his favourite dividend articles for the month.

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

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

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 on Twitter when you can.

  1. 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.
