Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Where’d All the Stocks Go?’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- In Michael’s latest post, he writes about the shift in stocks over the years. There are fewer stocks publicly trading, and the big stocks have gotten bigger and bigger. What kind of effect does this have on the market?
‘About That 4%’ – Richard Quinn – Humble Dollar
- The general rule in retirement is to withdraw 4% a year from your retirement accounts. Richard addresses the criticism this rule has come under, and if it’s really feasible. He offers a few points to add on top as well.
‘Concentrated Performance in the Stock Market’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- Big technology stocks seem to be swallowing the stock market whole. Ben takes a look at just how big and concentrated these stocks have become and the effect they are having on the market in general.
‘Why Markets Don’t Seem to Care if the Economy Stinks’ – Barry Ritholtz – Bloomberg
- The way stock indexes are structured has had an interesting impact on the market recovery in relation to the economic data. Barry takes a look at the seeming disconnect between the stock market and the economy.
