It’s always important to take a step back and let yourself re-charge your batteries every once in a while. This past Friday I did just that, and it really helped me re-focus on what’s important. Let’s have a great week!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Do You Need More Exposure to Oil?’ – Mullooly Asset Podcast
- In Ep. 304 of the podcast, I spoke with Brendan about oil. Oil has been making headlines for a few weeks now, and some people are wondering if now is the time to increase their exposure to oil. Find out what me and Brendan had to say in the link above!
‘Making Sense of a Stock Market that Doesn’t Make Any Sense’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- In the face of the worst economic data we’ve seen in our lifetime, Ben takes a look at how and why the stock market has been rallying. During past times of crisis, WWI and WWII, the stock market was also up and even when earnings are down the market can be up. It’s confusing, but important to try and make sense of it.
‘Why Americans Prefer Real Estate to Stocks’ – Josh Brown – The Reformed Broker
- With new Gallup research on hand, Josh dives into why more Americans view real estate as a better long term investment than stocks. He looks at the timing of the question, the emotional ties people have to their houses, and more.
‘Teachers’ – Blair duQuesnay – The Belle Curve
- In Blair’s latest post, she looks at the impact that states going bankrupt could have on our teachers and other essential workers like police and firefighters. While many states do have a pension obligation problem, the message being sent to teachers right now is not a positive one.
