Favorite LINKS - Initiated 1/21/16

 Here are among my "go-to" links I frequently visit and have posted here primarily for my convenience. As with many sites on the Internet, some are not safe for viewing at your workplace, especially where profanity and the "blame game" is concerned. If you surf far enough, you'll find instances of cross-posting of articles you encounter, even up to weeks after they first come to light. This list will likely grow to include new links I discover which I deem valuable to add, so you're encourage to frequent here if you have the time and interest. I disclaim that I am not a financial advisor, just an investor, nor do I necessarily recommend or endorse any of these associated articles, offered products or services for you, nor do I state my opinions, especially in public, unless I have actual experience or notice particular trends with these. I compare information from these sites as a composite and use my reasoning and experience to proceed further. Although I can offer an opinion(s) in person, I encourage you to do your homework before making any quick choices in regard to your finances as emotions often cloud one's judgement, especially when greed (and fear in particular) are at hand!
