Would I Invest in the U.S. Stock Market at Current Price Levels?

 Your stomach is grumbling, and you’re aching for a slice of the best pizza in town.  But how much will it cost you?  To understand, in relative terms, you’ll need to understand pizza-pricing history.  Why?  Because I’m going to relate pizza pricing to the stock market. I’ve heard from an unreliable source that a box …

Investment Maestro, Michael O’Higgins, Continues to Impress

When I wrote my book, Millionaire Teacher, I wanted something timeless.  Many money books, after all, describe investment methods that look downright silly, just a few years after publication.  Other books are vague, rather than instructive. But one investment manager has written two prescriptive books, swaying from the ordinary.  His name is Michael O’Higgins.  Author …

Unnerved By Surging Markets? Try Value Averaging

With the U.S. market continuing to hit new highs, many investors are wondering whether it’s a case of too much too soon. During the past 10 months, the S&P 500 has risen nearly 24 per cent, including dividends. Vanguard’s MSCI Canadian stock ETF hasn’t kept pace, but it’s up 14 per cent since June. If …

ETF War Offers Opportunity For Canadians

It’s been a few years since we’ve had a good old-fashioned gas-price war at the pumps. But most of us can still remember the vehicle lineups. Some car owners even filled Jerry cans to squeeze every last ounce of value from the temporarily depressed fuel costs. A few bucks saved on a couple tanks of …

Millionaire Teacher Buying $50,000 of Canadian Bond Index

I hate it when stock markets rise.  If you’re at least five years away from retirement, you should too.  If you’re 20 years away from financial freedom, pray for a market crash.  Keep your head when it happens, and you’ll thank yourself, many years from now, as you benefit from discounted stock market products.  The …

The Rise And Stall of China

 I don’t invest in China. When I chose an international stock market ETF, I bypassed the Middle Kingdom, purchasing Vanguard’s first world index for its absence of Chinese companies. Am I bit backward? You might think so. But exposure to the world’s fastest growing economy might be a drag on a globally diversified portfolio. You …
