Random Thoughts for a Bad Week

in Nortel, Random Thoughts

TGIF (actually to me this means Toes Go In First, I have it on all my socks), but this has not been a stellar week for me, and I’m glad to see the end of it. Ottawa has been in the clutches of a Transit strike and a deep freeze, I look forward to both of those issues resolving themselves (with time).

Financial Blog Roundup

This week in the financial blogs there have been some interesting postings which include:

  • The Canadian Capitalist asked, When Will Your Portfolio recover? which shows that sometimes continuing to invest after losses is not a bad thing.
  • Michael James wrote about a very questionable sports charity scheme that has managed to get Little League Canada’s charity designation removed. This is unfortunate, as Michael James and his wife have worked tirelessly for this worthwhile sports endeavor.
  • Where Does All My Money Go has been doing a week of yearly return reporting for various investments over the past 15 years.  Interesting numbers to check out.
  • Canadian Tax Resource points out an interesting change to TFSA’s in TFSAs and Estate Planning, well worth reading if you are planning on using this new investment vehicle.

Have a good weekend all.
