Weekly Roundup - August 20, 2016...Finally A Break
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
The Devil's Financial Dictionary by Jason Zweig (affiliate link) is a nice little time killer that gives brutally honest and often humorous definitions of different finance and investing terminology.
Today's word/definition is:
"Yield, n. and v.: Many investors chase yield in the pursuit of high income without ensuring first that their principal will be safe; earning a yield of 6 percent or 10 percent or more will do you no good if the investment ends up being worth much less than you paid for it...If you buy investments for their yield alone, sooner or later you will be reminded of another ancient meaning of yield: to surrender or to admit defeat."On to the Roundup
