Every week we put out timely, informative videos on the Mullooly Asset Management YouTube channel! If you’ve never seen an episode of the Mullooly Asset Show, I highly recommend you go check it out before this week’s episode drops.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Unintended Consequences’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- As Michael writes in his latest post, with every decision usually comes unintended consequences. Whether it’s a new push-up challenge, or the government increasing unemployment benefits, on the surface these ideas are great, but the unintended consequences need to be taken into consideration.
‘Why You’re Not One of the World’s Great Investors’ – Barry Ritholtz – The Big Picture
- We tend to idolize a small handful of legendary investors, and strive to be like them. Barry writes in this post, why you don’t have to be Jim Simons or Warren Buffett to do perfectly fine in the stock market.
‘When Your Fund Beats the Market, Ask: Which Market?’ – Jason Zweig
- It always feels great to know that your fund, your investments, beat the market over a given time period. However, making sure you’re using the RIGHT benchmark, the RIGHT market, makes all the difference. Jason illustrates this in his latest post.
‘Nothing Matters Til the Playoffs’ – Josh Brown – The Reformed Broker
- We’re in the midst of earnings season for publicly traded companies, but Josh writes that nothing really mattered until this week. The five biggest companies report their earnings this week, and their results overshadow anything else the rest of the companies are doing.
