The South Florida Bogleheads local chapter is very interested in learning what the Sacramento local chapter found to be their Capital Vices, The 7 Deadly Sins of Investing, at their recent February meeting. :shock:

Happy to share with you the handout along with my cursory notes:

Capital Vices / Exploring the Asset Classes II & Notes - 7 Deadly Sins of Investing [PDF]

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DGCcr4 ... p=drivesdk

The ‘7 deadly sins of investing’ as documented in the handout are not original material; nor are they exhaustive. Many of these vices would be best directed to a different audience: Wall Street analysts and stock traders, not necessarily Bogleheads!

New Website ~ SABH

Post by digarei » Wed Feb 26, 2020 5:47 pm

• • •
We now have a presence on the Interweb! :D

This month Sacramento Area Bogleheads (SABH) member Alan B. created a website for our chapter that is accessible to anyone with an internet connection. We hope that these pages draw attention to our group from a wider audience and anyone in the Sacramento MSA looking for a friendly place to discuss investing, personal finance and retirement. The website will provide information about our next meeting, and direct inquiries to the master thread on the Bogleheads® Forum and to our chapter mail box.


https://sacramentoareabogleheads.org



It’s still a work in progress but we’d like your feedback. Please add your comments to this thread or email them to:

Sacramento.Bogleheads@gmail.com
