I reviewed two books this week:
How to Make Money in Stocks: Getting Started
Here are my short takes and some weekend reading:
Tom Bradley at Steadyhand calls out big financial institutions for the maddening way they delay RRSP transfers.
Canadian Capitalist is disappointed with TD Direct Investing dragging its feet on offering US dollar RRSPs. He also shows how to quantify the added cost to investors compared to discount brokerages that have US dollar RRSPs.
Financial Crooks has some sensible advice about hot water heaters.
Preet Banerjee appeared on The National in a panel on the cost of credit card reward programs.
Big Cajun Man says that credit cards are making us fat, stupid, and lazy. I think credit cards will have to get in line behind television and beer.
Million Dollar Journey explains how to roll a covered call position. Please don’t try covered calls until you can explain why the premiums you collect are not free money.
