Retirement 100 questions answered
"Today I'm going to address a few questions from readers about the Retirement 100, our ranking of Canada's best dividend stocks of 2015, which was recently published online and in the November 2015 issue of MoneySense."
It's time to reap the season's dividend treats
"The high-yield group outperformed the market by an average of 2.2 percentage points annually, which represents a considerable bonus for a very simple strategy. On the other hand, the no-dividend group suffered mightily and lagged the market by an average of 7.3 percentage points annually. As a result, investors should think twice before buying stocks that don't pay dividends."
The power of nudges
"In the meantime, that deal qualifies as a nudge that violates all three of my guiding principles: The offer was misleading, not transparent; opting out was cumbersome; and the entire package did not seem to be in the best interest of a potential subscriber, as opposed to the publisher." [Behaviour]
The power of one
"If you're single, you know that retirement planning is tougher for you than it is for couples. You have no one to rely on but yourself, and you can't share expenses or split income. As a result, you can't just take the cost of retirement for couples and divide it by two. Situations vary, but a single person will need to spend roughly 70% as much as a couple to enjoy an equivalent lifestyle in retirement." [Retirement]
Charlie Munger vs. Valeant
"Months before Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. tumbled under attack from short sellers, Munger told investors in Los Angeles the company reminded him of the excesses of the 1960s conglomerate craze. 'I'm holding my nose,' Warren Buffett's longtime business partner said. Turns out, those remarks were just the start of his concerns." [Munger]
