Short Takes: Buy and Hold and more

1. Larry Swedroe patiently debunks a recent Wall Street Journal attack on the buy and hold strategy. It’s amazing that people make claims that can be easily proven wrong by just looking at the numbers.

2. The Male Storm reports that if you’re willing to jump through a few hoops you can get $200 free from TD Canada Trust.

3. Larry MacDonald reports on the dismal interest rates offered on new Ontario bonds compared to bank GICs.

4. Preet has a great idea for a Father’s Day gift.

5. Big Cajun Man runs down the latest changes to the Consumer Price Index.
