We are one day into the new MLB season, and we’ve already seen some issues with how things may go. Probably MVP candidate Juan Soto will now miss a big chunk of time with a positive COVID-19 test, and it was a sobering reminder that any player could be forced to miss time at any point.
Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that things go as smooth as possible.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘3 Things I Think I Think: Bad Tweets Edition’ – Cullen Roche – Pragmatic Capitalism
- There are a LOT of interesting takes on Twitter, and with that comes a lot of bad takes as well. Cullen highlights a few bad takes, and shares his thoughts. He covers topics surrounding 401(k)s, canceling debts, and the EMU.
‘Good Things Taken Too Far’ – Morgan Housel – Collaborative Fund
- You know the old saying about “too much of a good thing”. Morgan writes about a few really good ideas that people have simply taken too far. Sometimes when things are TOO good, you have to learn to control it before they get abused.
‘Avoid this Money Saving Strategy that Can Wreak Havoc on Your Spending’ – Jill Cornfield – CNBC
- Saving money is a good thing, but some saving strategies are better than others. Jill writes about a strategy that COULD work, but isn’t very sustainable and doesn’t promote good long term habits.
‘Why Everyone’s Trading’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- Michael tells a story about his plumber and how more people than ever are trading stocks. While this might appear like a market top, there are always reasons to sell and you need to remember what game you’re playing. Not everyone is playing the same game.
