Weekend Reading – Own vs. rent, preferreds, dividends, mobile looks and more
Welcome to some Weekend Reading friends…an early edition. It was a busy week for me so I only managed to squeeze in one blogpost highlighting our latest passive dividend income update. Spring has sprung in Ottawa and I’m looking forward to the nicer weather to be outdoors and work on our property. I hope you have a great weekend and see you here again next week. Enjoy the articles!

A reminder you can get conflict-free investment research and news from 5i here.

Thanks for including me Mark. You surprised me with the early edition – I thought it was Friday for a few seconds and I had my days mixed up. That’s how consistently I think your weekend reading comes out on Friday 🙂
Enjoy the (finally) nicer weather.
