The Stingy News Weekly (12/18/2016)
New from StingyInvestor
"Racing to the bottom is something investors don't like to do when it comes to the markets. They tend to avoid stocks that have fallen over the course of many years. Last December, I highlighted 10 Canadian stocks that had shrivelled to less than one-tenth of their 10-year highs." [$]
A Hot Potato feast
"As we prepare for roast beast dinner down in Whoville, it's time to consider the Hot Potato as a side dish. When it comes to investing, the Hot Potato is a momentum-based twist on the regular Couch Potato."
Lazy work, good work
"Rockefeller's job wasn't to drill wells, load trains, or move barrels. It was to make good decisions. And making decisions requires, more than anything, quiet time alone in your own head to think a problem through. Rockefeller's product - his deliverable - wasn't what he did with this hands, or even his words. It was what he figured out inside his head. So that's where he spent most of his time and energy." [Management]
The ace of spades
"On his wall, Eric has a framed Cuban cigar, he starts his story by explaining the significance of that cigar." [World]
Better bubble theory
"Glaeser and Nathanson's model makes one crucial assumption -- that investors rely on past prices to make guesses about demand, but fail to realize that other buyers are doing the exact same thing. When everyone is making guesses about price trends based on other people's guesses about price trends, the whole thing can become a house of cards. The economists show how if homebuyers think this way, the result -- predictably -- is repeated housing bubbles and crashes." [Markets]
Retirement - golf
"In all my years of working with clients, I can only think of two people who wanted to retire in the traditional sense. Even then, both stayed deeply committed to doing volunteer work, more or less full time, throughout their retirement. So, I have worked with precisely zero individuals who went from full-time work to full-time leisure at 65." [Retirement]
