That 1% move
07/24/16 9:42 PM ESTStingy Investor
"When describing differences in percentages (interest rates, growth rates, returns, etc.) you'll do your readers a kindness by using percentage points or basis points."

Ted Weschler makes his mark
07/24/16 9:27 PM ESTBuffett
"He honed his skills at Peninsula Capital Advisors, the hedge fund firm he launched in 2000 above a bookstore in a Charlottesville mall. Peninsula's $2 billion fund returned 1,236 percent before he shuttered it in 2011, versus 146 percent for Berkshire during the same period."

Do the hard thing
07/24/16 9:25 PM ESTBonds
"The reach for yield is becoming a reckless lunge. While high-quality bonds still have their place, too many investors are buying high-risk bonds instead."
More Bonds: Bonds aren't wretched
Bond challenge

Beware 13Fs
07/24/16 9:24 PM ESTMarkets
"Sadly, the bottomline is we should follow the SEC's own advice as it pertains to 13F filings: The reader should not assume that information is accurate and complete."

Keep calm and carry on

This week we have science, saving, home, technology, and more.

The Stingy News Weekly: July 3, 2016

Problems facing science
07/17/16 7:11 PM ESTScience
"Science, I had come to learn, is as political, competitive, and fierce a career as you can find, full of the temptation to find easy paths."
More Science: The dubious power of power poses
The mistrust of science

Save more money
07/17/16 5:20 PM ESTThrift
"Bonds pay borrowers while lenders earn nothing. Stocks soar to all-time highs. How weird is today's financial world? It's weird, all right, but probably not as weird as you think."
More Thrift: 7-day mental quarantine
How much you'll earn

Bonds aren't wretched
07/17/16 5:19 PM ESTBonds
"Why do so many bond investors feel nostalgic for the days when yields were negative (after inflation)?"
More Bonds: Bond challenge
The wrong kind of savings

How technology disrupted the truth
07/17/16 5:14 PM ESTMedia
"Social media has swallowed the news - threatening the funding of public-interest reporting and ushering in an era when everyone has their own facts. But the consequences go far beyond journalism"
More Media: Newsonomics
Ad blockers

Homes disappointing
07/17/16 10:05 AM ESTReal Estate
"Buy land: They're not making it anymore. That often repeated adage sounds like good financial advice. But over the long run, it hasn't been. Despite solid price increases over the last few years, land and homes have actually been disappointing investments. It's worth considering why."
More Real Estate: Housing bubble

The Stingy News Weekly: July 10, 2016

This week we have advisor fees, quarantines, culture, Graham, and more.

Cultural evolution
07/10/16 6:26 PM ESTBehaviour
"Two brains are better than one; in fact, group thinking could be the very reason the human species survived. According to author Joseph Henrich, it's a wonder that humans made it this far considering we are a comparatively weak and dimwitted mammal."
More Behaviour: Economist at the self-checkout

Lessons from Benjamin Graham
07/10/16 4:47 PM ESTGraham
"Much as Mark Twain said about the weather, Graham understood that people would read the ideas in his books but that nobody would do anything about them."

Wholesale transfer pricing
07/10/16 4:45 PM ESTEconomics
"John Malone made himself rich by owning the cable systems and saying to new channels, 'I will be glad to give you distribution on our cable system as long as you issue us AB% of the equity in your company.' The wholesale transfer price of getting distribution on his cable systems was AB% of the equity. On the flip side, John Malone always made sure there were at least two suppliers of set-top boxes for his cable business so he was not on the ugly side of wholesale transfer pricing."
More Economics: Destination unknown
The minimum-wage muddle

The pitfalls of negative rates
07/10/16 4:44 PM ESTMarkets
"Now, not everyone agrees with my view that central bankers have overused interest rates to solve the world's problems (the bank boosters point out that inflation is currently very low, which justifies lower rates), but I hope most of them would agree that by going negative, central bankers have introduced a whole new set of risks and unknowns. After all, the world economy is not designed to work with negative interest rates."
More Markets: Keep calm and carry on
Diversification disappoints

Advisors worth their fees?
07/10/16 4:29 PM ESTBrokers
"The advisor offers us tax advice. He coaches us on ways to keep our household costs down. We meet every quarter to re-evaluate our goals and see how we're doing. He also calms my nerves when markets go crazy."
More Brokers: John Oliver: retirement plans
G&M broker ranking

7-day mental quarantine
07/10/16 4:27 PM ESTThrift
"My wife and I are setting up a customs screening station in our driveway. No, we're not starting an international airport. And it's not for solicitors, strangers or gift-bearing guests. It's for us and our stuff."
More Thrift: How much you'll earn

Brexit-proof your plan
07/03/16 3:23 PM ESTStingy Investing
"Rather than adopting emotional cues from the market, wise investors cast a skeptical eye toward the big news stories of the day because acting on them often leads to disappointment. Instead, it is better to focus on your investment plan and process."
