Carnival of Passive Investing #34 - September 2013 Edition Now Live at Edward Antrobus

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.


A big thanks to our participants and host, Edward Antrobus! Our host of the next (October 2013 - # 35) edition, scheduled to go live on October 31st, 2013 will be The College Investor! Be sure to get your articles in now (see instructions below)!
