Shiller’s Research Is a Money-Maker for the Investment Advice Field

I don’t believe that market timing is a bad idea. I believe that it’s the best idea there is. If Shiller’s Nobel-prize-winning research is legitimate research, irrational exuberance is a real thing. That means that stock investing risk is not stable but variable; stocks are more risky when prices are high. That means that investors who want to Stay the Course in a meaningful way MUST engage in market timing.

No Market Can Survive Without Price Discipline

The market finds the right price by testing different price levels and letting investors find the one that makes the most sense. Buy-and-Holders are not open to

How to Crush Your Holiday Debt

The holidays have left without a trace. Well, almost. Long after the decorations have come down, you still have debt hanging around.

NerdWallet – NerdWallet

Don’t let it put a damper on your year. Here’s what you can do to take control of your holiday debt.

Review what you owe

Or, it could be the five bitcoin derivative plays that have shed 15% in five sessions as prices for the benchmark crypto have fallen through a trap door to commence 2022. 

Nope, in this environment of soon-to-be much higher rates friends, the data is clear — buy quality.

Did you know that the short-term rental market has now soared past a $1.2 trillion valuation? This stat comes directly from Airbnb’s recent IPO filing, which we should remind you took place against all odds…in the middle of a pandemic. What is even more staggering is that there is more potential for the valuation of this market to soar even more when you look at the combination of existing demand, the post-pandemic travel boom, and the shift towards remote working.
