Carnival of Passive Investing #2 - January 31st, 2011 - Jim Cramer Rants Edition

The 2nd ever Carnival of Passive Investing is now live on My Personal Finance Journey at the link below.

Jim Cramer Rants Edition of the Carnival of Passive Investing

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this week's three winners!

1. Craig presents A Better and Less Risky Way to Invest in Stocks posted at Free From Broke, saying, "Stocks provide great returns. There’s really only one thing wrong with this investment class. It’s the risk! Lots of middle-class people feel that they must invest in stocks to have any realistic hope of attaining a good retirement but live in fear of the stock crashes that can wipe out the accumulated savings of a lifetime in a few years. If only there were a better way!"

2. FIRE Getters presents Investing - The Mistake Of Timing The Market posted at FIRE Finance, saying, "We sometimes ponder and try to speculate the market. Basically we try to time the market to maximize our gains. Often we give up in despair! There are so many factors to be taken into account, volumes of information to be considered (not all of them are all reliable either) and finally there is a humongous number of unknown parameters that may influence the market! How on earth does one tackle all that?"

3. Barb Friedberg presents HELP, I'M CONFUSED ABOUT INVESTING, WHAT SHOULD I DO? posted at Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance, saying, "Investors frequently wonder, should I get out of stocks because they are too risky, or stop investing in bonds, or avoid cash because the yields are too low? TB, my student, voiced concerns that I’ve encountered on investing forums and from countless friends and acquaintances."

Thanks to our participants and host! My Personal Finance Journey will be our host of the next edition, scheduled for February 28th, 2011. You can submit your entry here.
