The Wealth Builder Carnival #116

Welcome to the one hundred sixteenth 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 into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now on to the Carnival.

Often the initial yield of a dividend growth stock is less than other available stocks, but the dividend growth stock comes with an expectation of reasonable increases year after year. This compounding effect will quickly grow the stocks income. It is well worth the investor's time to find companies that can deliver on this expectation..."

John Schmoll presents 5 Investing Mistakes That Are Easy to Make posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "We all make mistakes, we’re human after all. Investing mistakes can not only be costly, but they can also have a major impact on the overall health and performance of your long term portfolio."

Kaitlyn Johnson presents How to Budget for Having Your First Baby posted at Newborn Care, saying, "There’s an old adage that says if you wait to have children until you can afford them, you’ll never have them. While it’s true that raising kids in today’s world costs a pretty penny."

Josh Champagne presents Do Infrared Heaters Save Money? posted at Josh Champagne, saying, "An infrared heater and an oil-filled radiator go head to head in this real life experiment."


Super Saver presents Too Old to Rehire and Too Young to Retire posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Fifty years old may be the new goal for retirement."

Kurt presents New Capital Gain Tax Rates posted at Money Counselor, saying, "The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which resolved part of the so-called fiscal cliff, changed capital gain rates for some. Did your rate go up?"
