The Wealth Builder Carnival #34

Welcome to the thirty-fourth 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.

Due to an error, the submission deadline was Friday instead of the Sunday, resulting in a much lower number of accepted posts than usual.

And now onto the Carnival:



Insuring and Protecting



Dividends4Life presents 12 Confident and Secure Companies Boosting Dividends posted at Dividends Value, saying, "If income investing were as simple as picking the stock with the highest yield, everyone would be an expert. Most assume (rightfully so) that yield is heavily influenced by risk, but much more goes into determining yield. The industry the company operates in, legal considerations (REITs and MLPs), maturity and growth potential all have an effect on an individual stock’s yield, along with the company’s ability to grow its dividend."

Boomer presents Benefits Of TFSA vs. Non-Registered Account posted at Boomer & Echo, saying, "Experts have long recommended that investors set up their portfolios to be as tax efficient as possible by utilizing both registered and non-registered accounts."

Living Frugally





Mike Piper presents When Should I Take Social Security Benefits? (Single Investor) posted at The Oblivious Investor, saying, "Does it makes sense for unmarried workers to start taking Social Security retirement benefits as soon as they're eligible?"



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.
