Tim’s Top Links – 5/21/19

While I was at the gym this morning, I glanced up at the TV playing CNBC and saw the headline: “Morgan Stanley says worst case Tesla goes to $10”.

My first thought was: “Wouldn’t $0 be the worst case?” and my second thought was “Didn’t they say YESTERDAY it could go to $4,000?”

I guess my point is don’t read into the sensationalism on CNBC too much.  It’s purely for entertainment, not action.

Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:

  • Too many headlines/articles make financial exceptions seem more common than they are, and Nick has finally had enough!

‘The Best Kind of Learning’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor

  • When you choose to read books on your own versus being told to read them by someone else, the effects the book can have are more significant.

‘Love and Money’ – Daniel Crosby – Blinker Capital Blog

  • The biggest source of worry for married couples is money, but many don’t openly discuss it.  Daniel offers a few solutions in his latest post.

‘Sunk Costs, Todd Frazier, and Moving On’ – Mullooly Asset Podcast

  • Last week’s podcast had Brendan and Tom discussing the concept of sunk costs with investments, and related to the struggling Mets third baseman.

Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
