Tim’s Top Links – 4/7/20

In case you missed it last week, check out Ep. 115 of the podcast!  A lot of great insight for small business owners and entrepreneurs on handling the financial stress of the coronavirus and more!

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

‘No, This is Not the Great Depression’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor

  • It’s natural to compare what’s going on today to different times throughout history, but Michael illustrates why comparing it to the Great Depression is irresponsible and inaccurate.

‘The Flight of Safety’ – Nick Maggiulli – Of Dollars and Data

  • When the markets drop like they have, cash and bond percentages everywhere increase.  Nick looks at how much they’ve increased, and what it means for expected returns moving forward.

‘4 Stages of a Bear Market’ – Ashby Daniels – Retirement Field Guide

  • While every market environment (bull or bear) is different, there are a few key decision points in each market cycle that are crucial for investors.  Ashby outlines these steps in his latest post.

‘A Forward Looking Review of the COVID Present’ – Jeremy Walter – Calibrating Capital

  • Jeremy looked back at a seemingly difficult time in his life and realized there were a lot of blessings and good memories in there.  He likens that time to what we’re going through now, and wonders if we’ll be able to look back at this time the same way.
