Stolen from a blog I read:
Cultures erect enormous temples to what they honor; today the highest building in any American city is often a bank.
I have survived a very intense tax season and can now return to stocks.
Here’s a few random news items and links of interest:
- Tax havens explained: How the rich hide money – an interactive guide to offshore tax havens. Hope to need this one day, ha!
- Dividend Detective – recently rediscovered this website. A lot of the lists are available for free. With some elbow grease and charting, great picks can be found.
- Multpl.com – I was very reluctant to share this, it’s such an awesome website, lol. Every market-related statistic you may wish to see, all inflation-adjusted since 1880′s to present. On paper everything is really pretty bad and getting worse – S&P dividend yield, US Real GDP, US Median Income Growth, US Income Per Capita… S&P Earnings are rising though, hmmm. Could it be due to the accounting changes? A lot can be done with that, you know… And apparently inflation is at 0% now. If true, then why are the banks now offering 1.35% to 1.55% on term deposits, GIC’s and other savings accounts?
- Google Reader will be shut down on July 1, 2013. What are you switching to?
Don’t mean to get all political on you, but the GMO topic is close to my heart.
