Today’s linkfest is a little different today. We hope you enjoy the change of pace.

Morgan Housel, “I’ve learned that finance is actually very simple, but it’s made to look complicated to justify fees.” (Motley Fool)

Charles Bilello, “Investors are unequivocally greedy today, and with some perspective it is hard to blame them.”  (Pension Partners)

Ben Carlson, “Beating the market and your investing peers is hard, but it’s probably harder now than it’s ever been.”  (A Wealth of Common Sense)

Patrick O’Shaughnessy, “Diversification is good…to a point. But owning everything—even the junk—can be a drag on returns over the long term.”  (Millenial Invest)

Cullen Roche, “So, let’s all get on the same page and agree that we are all active investors to SOME degree.”  (Pragmatic Capitalism)

Michael Batnick, “Fundamental atheists wrongfully assume one needs to be extremely precise to make money.”  (Irrelevant Investor)

John Rekenthaler, “Those who truly don’t care about tracking error and who have a time horizon that extends for decades might wish to heavily favor value stocks. Most investors, however, should not tilt more than modestly in that direction.”  (Morningstar)

John Gruber, “Games are just apps. There’s no more reason to make a games/no-games split with Apple TV than there is to make an apps/no-apps distinction with the iPhone.”  (Daring Fireball)

Mark Wiedman, “There’s a permanent shift happening toward ETFs over futures for unlevered investors.”  (Bloomberg)
