Heading into the weekend here with some great links! It’s been a solid few days in the market since the Fed announcement on Wednesday. We’ll see if that holds up through the end of the day today and into next week!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- In this week’s podcast, Tom and Casey debunk this common misconception by explaining the math behind required minimum distributions and what other options folks have that they might not be aware of.
- This year in the market has not been great. But how does it stack up against some of the best and worst years in market history? Answering a reader’s question, Ben discusses some of the best and worst years that we’ve seen.
- We’re in a strange sort of limbo here where some people think we are in a recession and some people don’t. While the discussion is mostly just splitting hairs, what would an actual recession in this environment mean for the consumer?
- When it comes to investing, the word “safe” has different meanings. A reader asks about real estate, stocks, and bonds, so Ben uses this post as an opportunity to discuss all three in regards to inflation and earning a “safe” return.
