Welcome to your Weekend Reading list. I hope you enjoy my favourite articles from the week that was….
New to the blogging scene but not new to personal finance and investing, Barry Choi launched a website and shared his top personal finance books for Canadians.
Boomer and Echo wrote about the behaviour gap that hurts investors.
The Blunt Bean Counter finished his series about a magic retirement number for most Canadians.
Young and Thrifty offered a few ways why renting in your 20s is a good thing for your retirement. I agree and rented for most of my 20s myself.
The Passive Income Earner wrote an income tax planning guide.
This blogger offered 7 solid reasons why failure is a good thing.
MoneySense said the middle class is just getting by today.
This Globe and Mail article made no sense to me. I suppose paying down debt doesn’t make anyone rich though.
Dan Solin shared some myths about dividend investing. This one was odd, “dividend-paying stocks provide adequate diversification”. Not sure that’s a myth or just a random comment. The same can be said for most investing products actually.
Want to file your taxes? Missed my giveaway? Don’t worry, you can UFile and win some online tax codes thanks to Michael James on Money.
Mr. CBB wrote about when the sole provider loses his/her job.
Dan shared the basics of Dividend Reinvestment Plans, something I’m rather passionate about.
