Bad Money Moves

http://www.aarp.org/money/investing/info-2014/5-bad-money-moves.html

It's a slideshow (ugh) but seems accurate ? I'll wait for the definitive assessment from our much better educated members.

1. Can't find anything in there I would disagree with.

The points about REIT's and Oil and Gas Partnerships are particularly noteworthy.

Also, I like the quote "Never invest in anything you can't explain to an 8 year old."

Absolutely god damned right.

3. It always get back to the same advice, you don't get rich quick

you get their by placing a little each pay period in to a diversifed portfolio and let time do its thing.

4. These are all rock bottom basics.

 

If you have even a small amount of money to invest, you need to do your due diligence.

5. Wearable Tech Industry is Growing

Fitbit Inc.‘s “Fitbit” and Google Inc.’s Google Glass” are two of the most popular wearable tech products are there in the market but the customers on the lookout for wearables are spoilt for choice and this is probably the reason why stock investors are keeping their eyes peeled on various companies.

As the market develops, there will be more investment opportunities, but if you wait too long you can miss a chance to buy these wearable technology stocks that may yield huge returns. Scale in!
