If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to get stock tips or have investing ideas delivered to your email. I’m also on The Twitter.Thanks for visiting!Tweet Even in 2015, just about every newscast, online story, or random mutterings (my favorite kind of mutterings) about the general stock market always starts off with the Dow Jones Industrial Average, usually followed up by the S&P 500, and then the Nasdaq Composite. Although the S&P 500 index fund (NYSE:SPY) dwarfs the size of the equivalent Dow Jones product (NYSE:DIA) to the Read More […]

Tweet Allow me to start off this post with a sweeping statement on gender equality politics, something that has never been a bad idea in the history of ever. The only reason why Men’s Rights is a thing is because Feminism has become a parody of itself. Feminism ran out of real issues years ago, so now they focus on stupid crap like manspreading, “mansplaining”, and pushing campus rape statistics that don’t even hold up to rational thought, let alone any empirical research. And while we’re at it, LOL at Read More […]

Tweet Oh, what a portfolio it was. When I completed the Financial Uproar borrowing to invest portfolio, it was literally the greatest thing in the history of mankind. Angels sang in the heavens. Republicans and Democrats stopped fighting to collectively praise it. Jim Cramer FELL TO HIS KNEES and praised Allah. He’s Muslim, who knew? I promised quarterly updates on the thing, so here it is. Yeah, I know it hasn’t been exactly a quarter yet, but I was looking for something to write about today and it seemed like Read More […]

Tweet Congratulations, you’ve finally kicked off the shackles of investing in mutual funds and are going to go the ETF route. Go ahead and give yourself a hug and maybe a little kiss in celebration. But no tongue, that’s weird. Because apparently paying less than 0.5% per year in fees isn’t cheap enough for you, let’s talk about all the online brokerages where you can get commission free ETFs. That’s not only useful for long-term buy and hold investors who are looking to put a few thousand bucks to work Read More […]

Tweet How many times have you heard something like this? “Here’s how you become a successful investor. You buy a company like McDonalds NO MATTER WHAT THE PRICE, and you hold it for 50 years. I guarantee you’ll be rich. Just look at the last 50 years.” Not only are these people falling victim to hindsight bias, they’re also guilty in assuming the next 50 years for McDonalds (or Coca-Cola, or Philip Morris, or AT&T) are going to be just as great as the last 50. The stock is going Read More […]

Tweet Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, which is great news for those of us in a relationship. If you’re single, I recommend weeping alone and trying not to harm your genitals. Or going out with friends maybe. But for the couples out there, it’s tough to figure out something fun to do that isn’t expensive or cliche. Luckily, the fine folks of this here blog have you covered. I’ve polled all one of our contributors to come up with a great list of cheap (and fun!) Valentine’s Day ideas. 1. Serenade her Read More […]

Tweet Whenever somebody talks about the cost of going to college, the following factors get thrown around: Tuition Books Food A lurve shack for all the ladies out there Transportation Moving expenses A laptop Approximately 61,583 cans of your finest, cheapest beer Up in Canada, all that adds up to between $15,000 and $20,000 per year, give or take a few bucks. You can save money by going to a cheaper city, because we all know it costs less to live in Halifax than it does Toronto or Vancouver. Or Read More […]

Tweet My Dad likes to tell a story about when he was a wee lad, back in the 1890s. My Dad is old. No, it was the 1960s. He had a school project where he was supposed to make a prediction for the future. Apparently he had just finished watching an episode of The Jetsons, because his idea was a little out there. He predicted that his classmates would live to see a day where we could have phone conversations over video. The class laughed at him, but in his Read More […]

Tweet A couple of weeks ago, the Bank of Canada surprised the market by cutting interest rates a quarter of a percent, setting the overnight rate at 0.75%. In response, Canada’s banks sat on their hands for a while and then begrudgingly cut prime from 3% to 2.85%, and only after Royal Bank was the first to do so. Banks: they’re bigger lemmings than the average high school student. Here are a few more words I had to say about the surprise interest rate cut. If you hold a variable Read More […]

Tweet You’ve never heard of Grace Groner? Geez, what’s wrong with you? I SAID GRONER, NOT GROANER. No, that joke’s not a groaner. It’s a moaner. Anyhoo, here’s the story on Grace Groner. She was born in 1907, and was orphaned when she was 12, probably because her old man caught syphilis. Some nice guy in town took her and her sister in, and paid for them to go to college. Both ladies graduated in 1931, right when I’m sure job prospects were swell. In 1935, Grace bought 3 shares Read More […]
