Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Let’s kick off this festive morning with some great articles about finance, and making more green (excuse the lame pun).
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Does Inflation Belong on Our Worry List?’ – Tony Isola – A Teachable Moment
- We all have plenty of things to worry about on a daily basis. Does inflation need to be one of them? In his latest post, Tony looks at the current state of inflation, and if an uptick in inflation is really THAT bad.
‘Here’s How the $10,200 Unemployment Tax Break Works’ – Greg Iacurci – CNBC
- There are plenty of changes in the tax code for 2020 due to the pandemic. One more change that came last week with the American Rescue Plan Act is an unemployment tax break. This article outlines how it works and who qualifies.
‘Why Stocks and Bonds are the Core of Any Portfolio’ – Cullen Roche – Pragmatic Capitalism
- When it comes to creating a portfolio, Cullen writes about how he is a fan of a core/satellite allocation. He writes in this article why stocks and bonds make up that core even now when there are narratives working against those assets.
‘Inflation is Just a Monster Under the Bed for Investors’ – Nir Kaissar – Bloomberg
- The market and investors constantly need something to worry about, even when things are good. This article talks about how the current worry is inflation, but why it shouldn’t be as big of a concern as some people think.
