Happy Tax Day! Just kidding. As I’m sure you’re all aware, you still have a few more months to file your 2019 tax returns.
Some of you may have gotten a stimulus check in your bank account this morning. Just like any other income, it’s best to have a plan for it! Don’t go wasting it on unnecessary stuff.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘How to Never Suffer’ – Stephen Nelson – Per Diem
- Whether it’s physical, emotional, or financial, we’ve all felt some degree of pain over the last few weeks. Stephen writes about the financial pain equation and how we can try to minimize our own pain when it comes to money.
‘The Stock Market is Not Your Benchmark’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- After seeing images of the Dow having its “best week since 1938” despite millions of Americans losing their jobs, Ben writes about how the stock market works. He outlines how the markets can sometimes move in unison with news, and sometimes (like now) it just seems to be really confused.
‘Let’s Have Tim Cover Apple and Jeff Analyze Amazon’ – Spencer Jakab – WSJ
- Spencer links to a very interesting article outlining how analysts with the same name as the CEO of a company tend to make more accurate forecasts in regards to earnings.
‘COVID-19 and Equity Markets’ – Drew Dickson – Albert Bridge Capital
- As Drew outlines in his latest post, people are the key ingredient to this whole situation, and will be the driving force in moving past it. He takes a look at markets over the last few weeks/months and provides insight as to where things could go in the next few years.
