As we are now less than 10 days away from the 2020 Presidential election, it’s important to remember your goals for your portfolio. There will be PLENTY of wild headlines over the next week, and most likely well into November, but try not to let it disrupt your long-term plans.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Are You a Toxic Retirement Saver?’ – Tony Isola – A Teachable Moment
- Exercising is a good thing. Toxic exercising is taking things too far, and that’s NOT a good thing. The same thing goes for saving money for retirement. Tony outlines examples of this toxic behavior in his latest post.
‘Yes I Was Bearish. No, I Wasn’t Bearish’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- It was hard not to be bearish about things earlier this year. In his latest post, Michael explains how he was bearish at the time, but also not truly bearish about the market in general.
‘How Hard is it to Find the Next Amazon?’ – Joachim Klement – The Evidence-Based Investor
- Wouldn’t it be great to find the next Amazon in the market BEFORE it becomes Amazon? This post identifies just how difficult that actually is. Everything looks easy in hindsight, but in real time it’s much harder.
‘Value Investing III: Requiem, Rebirth, or Reinvention?’ – Aswath Damodaran – Musing on Markets
- There have been a lot of discussions about value investing this year. This is Aswath’s third post in a series about value investing (go check out the other two), but in this one he talks about ways to potentially rethink value investing moving forward.
