Carnival of Passive Investing #18 - May 2012 Edition Now Live at The College Investor

The 18th (May 2012) edition of the Carnival of Passive Investing is now live on The College Investor at the link below. A big thanks to Robert @ The College Investor for hosting! 

Carnival of Passive Investing # 18 - May 2012

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top 3 picks (shown below)!

  1. Kurt from Money Counselor highlights exactly why you should focus on passive investing and not active investing – Fund Fees: The Nest Egg Killer.  Best phrase: No, money managers are not worth their cost.  Spot on!
  2. Barb from Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance talks about Why I Don’t Invest in Individual Stocks Anymore.  If this story doesn’t highlight why you should consider passive investing, I wish you the best of luck!
  3. PK from Don’t Quit Your Day Job created (yes, created) an S&P 500 Return Calculator.  While this isn’t exactly passive investing, it is a tool that all investor (both passive and active) need to see how they are really doing.  I know I’ve personally wanted something like this for a long time.   Now, you can see how your passive portfolio really compares to the S&P 500.


Thanks to our participants and host, The College Investor. Young Adult Finances will be our host of the next (June 2012 - # 19) edition, scheduled to go live on June 30th, 2012. Be sure to get your articles in now (see instructions below)!

Since Blog Carnival has ONCE AGAIN started to not work at all recently (most everyone that I know has had technical difficulties), you can use the Blog Carnival HQ submission form clicking here.

Also, I am STILL putting the final touches on the hosting schedule for 2012. Currently, all months have been claimed except for December 2012, so if you'd be interested in hosting on at the end of this year/beginning of 2013, take a look at the hosting schedule and then send me an email to get on the schedule.
