A Deeper Understanding of Sound Investing

paulDear Friends,
I have started a new series of podcasts: “What Every Investor Needs To Know.” These weekly podcasts will address such topics as: how to understand the way market works; how to make sure you get the most out of your 401(k); how to retire early; how to know when you have enough to retire; and what you should teach your kids about investing. These are essentials to ensure that you are getting the best unit of return per unit of risk.

My goal is to help you make more money, with less risk, and have more peace of mind about retirement and money. In many cases, my MarketWatch.com articles address these important topics. However, since Rich Buck (my writing partner) and I are limited to 800 words per article, I will be recording podcasts that offer additional insights into what we have written.

My hope is you will read the articles and listen to the podcasts. If I’m not making sense, let me know.

I always appreciate hearing from my readers and listeners and have been receiving many more questions than I expected, so please understand that I try to answer as many questions and comments as I can. My wife and I spend about half the year in San Miguel de Allende, and the other half on Bainbridge Island, WA. There are times, especially in San Miguel, when we have guests and other engagements, so my computer time is limited.
My wife says she was under the mistaken belief that I was going to retire, so sometimes I have to act like a retired husband. Actually, she is very supportive of my work and happy that people seem to appreciate the effort Rich and I put into helping others with their financial decisions. Like many of you, I am learning to create more balance in my life, grateful for the gift of each day.

To your success,

Your best investment move ever   
If you make only one “right” investment decision in your lifetime, let it be this: Choose the right source to rely on for information and advice.


Why all investors should own value funds
If you’re a good shopper, you know one of the keys to being a good retirement investor: Look for good values. A savvy shopper knows how to spot value. A savvy investor owns value stocks.
