Understanding how dividends factor into your investment portfolio is crucial. Last week we started what is turning out to be a three-part series about dividends on the Mullooly Asset Show.
Part two of the series premieres tomorrow, so catch up on part one today.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- Citing the late Jack Bogle, Tony argues that retirement plans like 401(k)s and 403(b)s are too flexible. Not enough people save enough for retirement and it’s only getting easier to take money out of these accounts.
- It’s been a wild ride for stocks this year. In her latest piece, Christine takes a look at the ins and outs of rebalancing not just stocks and bonds, but different areas of stocks as well. Is now the right time?
- Remember when COVID-19 first struck and you couldn’t find toilet paper in stores for weeks? Some new research has linked a few different personality traits to those folks who made a mad dash for toilet paper. It helps explain why they did what they did.
- Robinhood had 3 million new accounts opened in the first quarter of 2020, and brokerage firms have seen a 106% increase in account openings since last year. With how volatile and crazy the market has been, Nick looks at the question of why this is happening.
