We’re back with a full week of Top Links this week! February comes to and end and as we head into March, we’re left hoping the market can regain some of the momentum from January and shake off this latest dip at the end of the month.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘How to Read Your Form 1099’ – Mullooly Asset Podcast
- Your Form 1099 can tell you a lot about your financial situation… if you know what to look for. In this week’s podcast episode, Tom and Casey walk you through the form and explain why it is an important piece of tax information. The guys talk about capital gains tax, step-up in cost basis, where to access Form 1099s and much more.
‘Does Long-Term Investing Work Outside the United States?’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- Long-term, buy and hold investing tends to be the most successful approach for investors, but does that only apply to the US market? Ben addresses this concern that a handful of his readers have in his latest post.
‘The 7 Greatest Asset Bubbles of All Time (All You Need to Know)’ – Nick Maggiulli – Of Dollars and Data
- The debate around this topic is endless, so Nick does a great job of summarizing everything in this post. There have been a handful of bubbles over time. Some aspects of each are vastly different, while some are fairly similar.
‘The Mortgage Rate You Get Depends Partly on Your Credit Score’ – Sarah O’Brien – CNBC
- I would venture to say that MOST people know that mortgage rates in general are higher than they have been in years. However, some people may NOT know that the rate you get can be higher or lower depending on your credit score.
