Weekend Investment Reading – Index Funds, Really This Time

by Investing School on March 6, 2009

While I believe that people can pick stocks and investments that will truly outperform the market in the long run, I feel that it’s not worth the effort.

The mood swings that come with stock picking may not be worth it for some of you.  Neither is the time that it takes to research stocks.

Have you really thought about starting an investment plan around index funds where you just automatically contribute to it every month?  Wouldn’t that make your life better and easier when you don’t really have to watch CNBC all day long anymore?
