Weekend Reading – Sens in seven games and great blogs

That’s right, I wrote it.  My Ottawa Senators will beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in seven games.  Although they lost game 1 of the series (4-1), I’ve got a great feeling they can rebound in game 2 on Friday night and come home with the split.  Who’s with me?

The “lawn weekend” will be filled with yard work and studying for an HR course I need to write an exam for soon but some relaxation is also in store as well.   Until my next post, enjoy these articles.  Have a great long weekend!

Mr. Money Mustache had a cool post about a lawyer calling it quits and a despondent millionaire.  The lawyer has more money than he can spend and now, realizing this, is quitting his job and selling his McMansion.  The despondent millionaire has been somehow programmed to think he has been financially unsuccessful by his family despite owning two homes and holding a bunch of investments.

Rick Ferri said on his blog this week:  “Wise investors do not try to time markets. They create an asset allocation to stocks based on their needs, invest in the asset allocation using index funds, and rebalance occasionally. A low-cost buy, hold and rebalance strategy has the highest probability for meeting future financial goals.”
