Well, if you were hoping that the market got all of its “rockiness” out of its system in the first quarter, no such luck. We’re heading into the final week of April and the market is still seeing its fair share of ups and downs.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- Tom talks all things capital gains tax rates in this week’s podcast. Now that 2021’s tax deadline has passed, it’s time to start looking for changes to make as we head further into 2022.
- “Money doesn’t buy you happiness” is a common phrase we hear from successful people. However, I’m willing to bet most non-wealthy folks would like the chance to decide for themselves. Ben writes about why having lots of money doesn’t seem to make people happier.
- Historically, we see stock market corrections on almost an annual basis. However, not all corrections are created equal. This time around, the stock market correction is in lockstep with a bond market drawdown.
- Last week we saw Netflix enter a free fall after their latest earnings call. So what happened? Michael writes about how Netflix has been enjoying success for nearly a decade, and didn’t really take the time to address any problems growing under the surface.
