We have a busy financial ramblings today as we will be A GIVING CHAPTERS GIFT CERTIFICATE OF $100 (Sponsored by INSURE CAN) and we have several good reads this week.
But first things first:
I have truly been surprised and amazed that we have had such big returns, especially in the last two quarters. I should definitely take a deeper look at their investing strategy!
Now what’s up with the contest?
So you want a $100 gift certificate to Chapters? Here are the rules:
1 entry per comments to the following question:
What is your best investment strategy for 2009?
You can be creative, post a long answer, whatever you want. The winner of this gift certificate will be known next Friday (Jan 23rd).
You can get enough of $100?
You can win another $50 gift certificate over at Four Pillar!! (he is giving 2 of them!)
Even better, Canadian Capitalist is offering 2 $50 gift certificate if you give him investing ideas for 2009.
Here’s what caught my attention this week:
Intelligent Speculator is talking about the flip side of leveraged ETF’s. A dangerous investing tool that can improve your yield or destroy your portfolio
If you want to know what a stock split is, ABC’s of investing is proving a great definition.
The Credit Toolbox is giving you reasons to take a variable rate mortgage. I’m a big fan of variable rate mortgage since it’s the cheapest way to pay down your debt!
You are thinking about doing some tactical asset allocation? Read this post from Canadian Capitalist first!
Four Pillars is asking if you should invest your house cash down in the market. I actually did it and it was a really bad decision! I had to borrow money from my parent to compensate for my stupidity! (but I was still young and dumb… now I’m just… hum… I’ll let you guess ).
Million Dollar Journey shows us how he reduced his tax burden in 2008. He is not only a nice guy and clever PF blogger, he is also generous!!
Money Ning is asking if you prefer to cut your pay cheque… or being completely cut from the payroll. I would probably accept a pay cut until I get another job elsewhere!
