Timing the market is tempting
"There are only a few things in this world that are as tempting as a good butter tart. When it comes to investing, the urge to time the stock market is one of them."
"It's hard to visit cottage country without dreaming about buying a little slice of heaven. While owning a cottage has some obvious benefits, it tends to be a costly affair. Crunch the numbers and you'll likely discover the relative advantages of renting."
Y So Cheap?
"I think Y is a solid investment. It may not trade much above BPS in the near term; their stated goal is to increase BPS 7-10%/year over time, and I think it's great if they can achieve that and worth BPS if that is the case." [Stocks]
Sell Oakville, buy Windsor
"Investing strategist Dan Hallett has been saying this to friends of his lately: With an eye on retirement, sell your home in Oakville, about an hour's drive west of Toronto, and head another three hours west on Highway 401 to his own city of Windsor." [Real Estate]
Investors should take a pass
"Keep in mind that financial institutions have designed these products and have deemed them attractive enough to want to sell a lot of them. In other words, they will tend to offer products when they are confident that the odds will be tilted in their favour - which may be at odds with what's best for end investors." [Hallett]
