Weekly Roundup - November 19, 2016
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
I'm trying to finalize a plan to invest my 401k assets now that they are rolled over into an IRA. I'm a bit torn with trying to balance investing for the long term and getting the compounding going while also keeping a good amount of cash on the sidelines in case of a significant pullback. It's a fine line to walk because cash is king, but time and compounding can be magical. Decisions, decisions.
In the last few Roundups I've written about my desire to build up a decent garage gym now that I'm a SAHD. I was hoping there'd be some good discounts with Black Friday and the holiday shopping season fast approaching, seriously how in the world is Thanksgiving almost here????, and while there isn't a great deal Fringe Sport is running a 10% off coupon and free delivery. I'm pretty interested in this set up and will very likely be purchasing this set up over the weekend. I need to price everything out individually since they are running sales on the separate items to make sure that I'm getting a good deal, but I wouldn't be surprised to get my garage gym started just in time for the overindulgence of Thanksgiving.
I've slacked a bit with writing stock analyses and I hope to get back on track this weekend and this coming week since my wife is off for the whole week. I love getting to look at companies to see just what makes them tick and trying to peg a valuation for them and when they would be good buys. Unfortunately the back of the envelope eyeball test (it's very scientific I promise) doesn't show a whole lot of companies trading at fair value, let alone below it, rather the majority of companies I'm interested in are still on the high end of fair value. Sigh, someday really good values will be available.
