The Wealth Builder Carnival #35

Welcome to the thirty-fifth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic. For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:



Insuring and Protecting



The Wise Squirrel presents Trust Your Instincts – Learn from My Japan Investment Example posted at Squirrelers, saying, "Sometimes you have to trust your instincts when making investment decisions. This story is a recent example of how I correctly evaluated an investment opportunity, but neglected to pull the trigger on it."

Darwin presents Incredible Silver Pairs Trade – If You Can Find the Shares to Short posted at ETF Base, saying, "Every so often, an opportunity occurs in the market where the risk/reward is just too good to pass up. This silver pairs trade is a perfect example."

Odysseas presents Why Dollar Cost Averaging is an Effective Investment Strategy posted at Wallet Blog, saying, "I explain a systematic approach to investing that will help people to earn more in the long run. People who suffer the greatest investing losses are those who are constantly getting in and out of "hot" stocks."

Paula Pant presents Why Market Timing is a Bad Idea posted at AffordAnything.org, saying, "Lessons from the disaster in Japan about why market timing is a bad idea."

Dividends4Life presents 13 Stocks Using Real Cash To Pay Higher Dividends posted at Dividends Value, saying, "We have all heard it… Stodgy, for old people, yawn, boring! These have all been used to describe dividend growth investing. As a dividend growth investor, I sometimes think our strategy is the most misunderstood. It seems everyone understands a traders mentality and a high-yield mentality."

Jessica presents Hedging in Investing posted at MomVesting, saying, "Hedging, at it's most basic, is the act of making an investment to offset another investment in your portfolio."

Financial Uproar presents BMO Covered Call Canadian Bank ETF Analysis posted at Financial Uproar, saying, "My look at the BMO Covered Call Bank ETF, and whether it's a good choice for income in an investor's portfolio."


Mike Piper presents Taking Social Security Early and Investing the Money posted at The Oblivious Investor, saying, "Is it a good idea to delay taking Social Security? Or should you claim benefits as early as possible and invest the money?"

The Military Wallet presents What Happens If You Contribute Too Much to an IRA? posted at The Military Wallet, saying, "Don't panic if you contribute too much to an IRA - you may still have time to correct it without having to pay penalties or fees. But if you let it go too long, you may be in for a surprise!"


Boomer presents RRSP or Mortgage: What To Do With Your Tax Refund? posted at Boomer & Echo, saying, "The debate that always comes up around this time of year is whether to use your tax refund to top up your RRSP or to pay down your mortgage."


Jim Yih presents Getting help with your taxes posted at Retire Happy Blog, saying, "Many Canadians need help preparing their tax returns. For those that need help, here's some thoughts on who to go to for help."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
