Re: Where's Warren Buffett During This Crisis?

Doesn't really give any insight into the economy right now, or the crisis itself, but this is notable as one of Buffett's few recent public statements: his letter explaining that the 2020 Berkshire meeting is closed to the public.

Re: What's the equivalent of the Bogleheads community for value investing?

You might look at Daily Trade Alert, but realize that you will have to find authors that fit your value tilt. The ones I read from that site migrated there from Seeking Alpha. Thanks, those actually do exactly the job I wanted! There's something about having many authors, each with their own voice,...

Re: Rent and invest the difference?

I did the math on this recently for my life and circumstances (HCOL area but very important-to-me reasons to stay living there etc.) and found that over the next 30 years, there was only $10k~ in it. So many assumptions in there (inc. that I only move once during that period if I buy) that mean it's...

What's the equivalent of the Bogleheads community for value investing?

I learn so much from lurking on this forum, and wish I had a similar place to hang out and learn from proponents of value investing / stockpicking (whatever Bogleheads might think of them! :P ) I've tried Guru Focus and Value Investors Club, finding their forums don't have the same sense of communit...

FT article: "Pension funds raise concern over index manager stewardship"

Interesting piece in the Financial Times today (linking to Google search results so non-subscribers can access). This bit particularly caught my eye: "The Big Three in passive investment — BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street, which collectively oversee more than $14tn — have grown their stewardshi...

In which companies do you own a single share, or token amount, of stock?

I know it's not exactly the Boglehead way, but I'm sure most of us here own a few individual company stocks outside of our index funds. I'm interested in hearing about the ones you own for not-just-financial reasons: your beliefs, your interests, sentimentality (!) or the freebies, such as: I'm a fa...

Re: Asset allocation across multiple time horizons

Thanks both for your helpful responses. Avalpert - I should note that (in my mind, at least) there is a forced segregation of the 10 year part and the longer term part because anything I pay into my retirement fund (the way it works in the UK at least) is "locked up" until I reach at least age 55 (2...

Asset allocation across multiple time horizons

Most of the advice I've read on asset allocation (including across multiple accounts) assumes that your portfolio has a single time horizon, often retirement. I have two key objectives for my investing - one of course is saving for retirement (35 years+), and one is saving for a property down paymen...

Is this the correct class of this Vanguard fund for a UK retail investor?

Hi all, Really glad I found this site - have learned a lot from reading the wiki and lurking on the forum. I'm looking to buy into the Vanguard FTSE Developed World ex-U.K fund (accumulation). I've read a bit about how to pick the right class of a fund , but it's not clear whether this is the class ...
