Interesting Articles from Last Week

Mistakes Were Made Great article by fellow blogger No More Waffles. You have to admire an investor that admits his mistakes and what is more impressive is he is still in his twenties so it shows maturity and level headedness at a young age.

I Retired at 30 Another fantastic article by Mr. Money Mustache. Nothing is more polarizing than combining the words retired and thirty, actually the article is not about retirement but about having no more constraints to say or do what you want (freedom)!

18 Steps to a New Financial Plan Helpful checks for all those developing 2016 goals.

Markets and Lotto

Last week’s major headlines were pretty much downers with ISIS, Hydrogen Bombs, Shootings, and of course the markets getting bashed to start 2016. But at least there was one distraction to give us a break and that is a record Power Ball lotto drawing of $900 million.

I have no idea what to even do with that much money! But if I won a small piece of that action I sure know how I would invest some of it. Thanks to the market beating there are definitely some big name well run companies on sale.

The financial sector was one of the worst hit last week. Many investors for some reason soured on big banks and the sector was the second worst performing.


The problem I saw was the baby being thrown out with the bath water. The Financials sector is more than just banks and some good non-bank companies got trashed, take a look at these bargains:
