Weekend Reading – Investment fee calculators, beating the index, priorities and more

Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition friends, where you can find some of the best personal finance and investing articles from the blogosphere.

Earlier this week, I shared our latest dividend income update on our path to early retirement and I posted this interview with early retiree Ross Grant, who shows you how you can potentially beat the index following his investment strategy.

Have a great weekend and see you here next week for more articles, including an upcoming profile from a reader who has gravitated to index investing.  Enjoy!

  1. Got to love those banks, assuming one owns the stock. Most have paid a dividend since the 1800’s and increased them regularly. Yeah, past performance blah, blah, but I’m glad to accept that they will continue as they have!
