Well, by the time this edition of Top Links is tweeted out, it could be sent out on a Twitter platform owned by Elon Musk! You may think the times we’re living through are good or bad, but one thing is certain. They are definitely not dull!
Here’s what I’ve been reading today:
- Investing involves trade-offs. You have to risk something in order for the potential gain. There is always something at stake. In this week’s video, Casey breakdowns the trade-offs being made when investing in stocks, bonds and cash.
- Over the last few days, the 2-year Treasury yield hit 2.5%. It hasn’t been this high in a while, and Josh discusses why some people should take that rate and run. Is it the highest possible return for your money? Probably not, but it could be good enough to accomplish what you need.
- Up until recently, it’s been pretty cheap to acquire a mortgage from an interest rate standpoint. However, rates are rising, and mortgage rates are not immune. Rates hit 5% for the first time in over a decade recently.
- In my opinion, that seems high doesn’t it? 401(k) contributions are important to your retirement, but to think the EMPLOYER side of things is KEY is just putting a lot of weight into something out of your control. This article discusses these survey results, and the vesting schedules attached to them.
