I’ve decided to wind up this blog, so that I can devote myself more fully to the new book I’m working on. Tentatively titled Bullet-Proof (In)Vest(ments): The Stocks Every Should Own, the new book will explain how, and why, a healthy allocation to value stocks, small caps, and small cap value stocks will protect your portfolio from secular (long-run) bear markets while also yielding better long-term returns than the S&P 500. In addition to the book, I’m also working on new website that will include its own retirement calculator and savings calculator. The two calculators will serve as companions to the book; the book will pick up where the last few posts have left off and explain how to get the most out of the calculators. Once the new website is up and running this website will be shut down, and you will instead be redirected to the new site.
At this point I’m shooting for a 2018 publication date for the book. I’ll be making announcements in this blog once the publication date is finalized, so be sure to check back here for those announcements. Also, you can sign up for my monthly newsletter to stay up-to-date on progress on both the book and the new website.
