As of 10:00pm last night, two of my posts, ING Direct Threatened to Close My Account and Why Do I Share My Finances Every Month?, were in the top five on the pfblogs.org popular page. Here are some others.
* Preparing for Life Without a Credit Card. I’ve considered trying this for a month to see how it affects my spending, just as an experiment.
* Better Alternatives To Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs). DRIPs are a good idea if you “believe” in a company.
* Your Home: Asset or Liability. Asset, period. A mortgage is a liability, a house is an asset.
* A Different Kind of Rich. If you thought CEOs make a lot of money, check out the Trader Monthly 100.
* Risky Loans – Alive and Well. Despite bad press, expensive and unfavorable loans are still selling like hotcakes.
* CEO Mansions: A Stock Indicator? Look at the real estate deals. If CEOs are spending their money on extreme luxury real estate, their stocks will soon tumble.
* Meet One Dissenter from Roth 401(k) Rah-Rah Chorus. The Roth 401(k) isn’t a good idea for most workers.
* Gas Prices Expected to Peak at $2.87 in May. New Jersey’s peak price will be lower. I’ve grown accustomed to these high prices now.
