Weekend Reading – More dividend raises, cannabis stocks and ETFs, robo advisors and more #moneystuff
Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition – where I share some of my favourite articles from the week that was across the personal finance and investing blogosphere.
These were my posts from the last week!
Should you invest in the cannabis industry? I might via an ETF.
Vanguard is launching some actively managed mutual funds in Canada – why? You can read my take on that here.
Congrats to Daniel who won the Retirement Income for Life book with this giveaway on my site. Thanks to all participants. I look forward to giving away more free stuff later this year to you.
Enjoy the following news and these articles!
BNS hiked their dividend to $0.83 per share. Another raise!
Yet another raise – TD bank increased their dividend by a juicy 11.7%! So, while the TSX is under water so far in 2018 and it will probably stay that way, my income for retirement has grown.
Jonathan Chevreau sides with many other bloggers and financial experts, robo advisors offer great benefits in terms of modest fees and professional money management advice.
On the subject of investing fees and money advice, did you know I can get you $50,000 managed FREE for one year?! It’s true – thanks to my offer with this leading robo-advisor. You can even take a free trial when opening an investing account with ModernAdvisor.
Rob Carrick informed Canadians that full Canada Pension Plan (CPP) benefits are tough to obtain. You may recall from this article on my site about the CPP pension formula and why you should bet on receiving average CPP income if you’ve worked most of your adult life until age 60 or 65.
Leo shared some good money problems to have.
Tawcan wrote about his frugal (weird) thoughts.
How To Save Money highlighted his favourite travel credit cards. I like cash back cards myself but the list is good and as always, very thorough!
Million Dollar Journey highlighted some all-in-one Vanguard ETF solutions.
Can $1.7 million last this couple a lifetime? Geez, that would definitely work for my wife and I.
Have a great weekend!
