As has been the case for almost all of 2022, we’ve operating in a hypersensitive news-driven market. Markets rallied after Fed comments earlier in the week, and tumbled this morning off a better-than-expected jobs number. The roller coaster continues!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- It’s been a rough year for the stock market, and it naturally has left investors wondering if other asset classes would be better. In this post, Ben breaks down how real estate has performed as an investment over time compared to stocks.
- A quick post and chart outlining data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics regarding the number of Americans working into their 80’s. Retirement is an ever-changing concept, so it’s important to understand numbers like these.
- We’ve been hearing for a while now that “a million dollars isn’t what it used to be”. This has only become more true over the last few years, and especially with high inflation right now folks think it’ll be even more difficult to retire.
- The popular phrase “more money, more problems” actually does have some truth to it. Coming into an unexpected windfall of money can be a great thing, if you know what to do with it. This article outlines how to handle a potential windfall.
