I was thrilled to see that my group of individual stocks made it into the positive range for the first time in…oh, ever? (I don’t really know exactly, but I started buying individual stocks right before the stock market took that little ride in a hand-basket, so “ever” might actually be accurate.)
I’m so happy to see a positive though. Of course, part of that is due to me continuing to buy through thick and thin — it’s not like I bought some stocks, they dropped like a rock, and then they came back up. It’s a mixture of things, but that’s just fine with me.
With that, it’s link time:
ChristianPF hosts a post by Michael Rennie on the importance of planning when it comes to money.
Hunter Nuttall explains why logic and intuition fail.
Clever Dude wonders if the rate adjustment on his adjustable rate mortgage will save him money.
Brip Blap says it might be time to read the writing on the wall.
And Consumerism Commentary brings up a familiar debate: which are more important, the little things or the big things? (I’m always inclined to say “neither” or “both” to that.)
