Carnival of Passive Investing #36 - November 2013 Edition Now Live at Wealth Informatics

The 36th (November 2013) edition of the Carnival of Passive Investing is now live on Wealth Informatics at the link below. A big thanks to Suba over at that site for hosting this time around!

Carnival of Passive Investing # 36 - November 2013 Edition

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top 5 picks shown below:

  • Bobby Kania presents Passive Investing: Asset Allocation 101 posted at Making Money Fast and Slow.
  • Matt Becker presents How to Start Investing From Scratch – Part 2 posted at Mom and Dad Money and says “Welcome to Part 2 of my mini-series on how to start investing when you have little money or understanding of investing. This article will give you some simple steps you can take right now to get started on the right path.”
  • Bryce presents Another Post on Why Investment Costs Matter posted at Save and Conquer and says “I can’t say this enough, “Investment costs matter.” Just the other day, a person said to me, and I’m paraphrasing here, that as long as a mutual fund’s expense ratio was below 1%, it was good enough. My response was that 1% is still way too high and that after 30 years, a 1% ER will take away over 25% of the possible total value of the investment. Here are some other people’s thoughts on investing costs.”
  • Justin @ Root of Good presents Investment Management Using Asset Allocation Targets posted at Root of Good and says “Many investors have an asset allocation for their portfolios. Find out how to rebalance your portfolio using asset allocation targets and free software.”
  • PK presents Is the Stock Market Overpriced? Part I posted at Don’t Quit Your Day Job… and says “On its surface, Shiller’s CAPE might seem like a market timing mechanism… but if you can heed his warnings and set your allocation thusly? More power to you. Here’s a look at historical market P/E10s versus S&P returns.”

Carnival of Passive Investing # 34 - September 2013 Edition

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top 3 picks - Mom and Dad Money, Financial Ramblings, and So Over This! 

  • Matt Becker presents 5 Simple Questions to Ask Before Investing in Anything posted at Mom and Dad Money. Even when we already have an investment plan set up and running, we’re often presented with new investment opportunities that can seem pretty enticing. So how do we evaluate whether these new opportunities are right for us? We have to look beyond the hype and focus only on the aspects of the investment opportunity that are important to our specific situation. So today I’d like to talk about the five questions I think we all need to ask before deciding to put our money in any particular investment.
  • Michael presents Dividends Are Not Free Money posted at Financial Ramblings. The past few years have seen an explosion of interest in dividend investing. While there are (arguably) good reasons for this, many investors don’t seem to fully understand what dividend payments actually represent.
  • Andrea presents Several Good Reasons to Not Contribute to Your 401(k) posted at So Over This. A very common piece of advice that is given about retirement is that of maxing out a 401K plan at work. More than a few people, including professional financial advisors, will tell you that this is a way to make sure that your retirement is truly golden.
