BASEBALL. IS. BACK. (Even though the game tonight may get rained out) The MLB season finally starts tonight with the Yankees and Nationals playing in Washington D.C. As a Mets fan, I wish it were two different teams, but what can you do?
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Keeping Your Cool When Markets are Hot’ – Mullooly Asset Show
- In this week’s video, Tom spoke about two phone calls we received back in March that could’ve ended up costing people OVER $100,000 had they listened to their emotions in the moment. Working with an advisor can help stay cool when things get hot in the market!
‘The Light of History’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- Things are constantly changing. The financial markets are no exception. Michael writes about a shift in the yields between stocks and bonds, and how the old days of generating significant income from fixed income may be over.
‘My Presidential Platform’ – Blair duQuesnay – The Belle Curve
- The age requirement in the US to run for President is 35, and for the first time Blair qualifies for that. She outlines a few positions for her platform should she hypothetically run. From divorcing health care coverage from employment to reversing Reg BI – she has some interesting ideas!
‘No Need for Prophets’ – Robin Powell – Humble Dollar
- A financial planner is a lot of things, but they are certainly not prophets. Nor do they need to be. Robin writes about the true value of financial planners, and how making market predictions isn’t one of those valuable traits.
