The All Weather Portfolio and The Golden Butterfly
A lot can happen over the decades. There will be recessions, bear markets, bull markets, political upheaval, possibly even depressions. What should we do with our money in each of these scenarios? Do we up-end our asset allocation every time some pundit is on CNBC screaming at us?Certainly not. One of the key components of our investment philosophy is to set it and forget it.  When you are constantly buying and selling based on the prevailing economic conditions, you’re practicing the exact opposite of set it and forget it investing.We need to create a portfolio that performs well in all conditions. Well, we don’t need to create this portfolio because someone has done it for us. And that someone is not just anyone. He happens to be Bridgewater Associates hedge fund manager Ray Dalio, one of history’s legendary investors.Ray Dalio created what is known as the All Weather Portfolio which contains the exact asset allocation you need to make money in any kind of economy. But Ray Dalio’s All Weather Portfolio has some competition, in the form of the Golden Butterfly Portfolio. LMM is a huge Ray Dalio fan. Can the Golden Butterfly best our boy?We love a good smackdown so we’ll breakdown the All Weather Portfolio and the Golden Butterfly Portfolio. May the best portfolio win.Full Article Here Show NotesPhiloso Raptor Jersey City Belgium Style AleDouble Dry Hopped Coriolis Effect New Zeland Style IPAGet Started Investing BettermentLearn more about your ad choices.

Case Study: Andrews 3 Rental Properties 2.5 Years Later
Rental properties can be a great source of passive income but there are a lot of variables. What do you need to know to make sure you buy the right rental properties? Well, doing is the best way to learn anything.We podcasted about rental properties and wrote about rental properties and built a tool to help you find and compare rental properties. Oh, and Andrew and Laura bought 3 rental properties in quick succession.Mistakes have been made and lessons have been learned. Is cash flow the most important determining factor? Do you need to pay a management property? That cuts into your profits after all.Once you have a set of criteria that a house must meet in order to be a good real estate investment, should you change it? If so, when and why? If a tree falls in your front yard in Georgia but you live in Hoboken and don’t hear it, did it really fall?A few years ago LMM went on something of a rental property tangent. We were excited and you all got excited too. But then some big things happened. LMM became a full-time occupation, new sites were built and launched.During that time, we got lots and lots of emails wanting advice on buying rental properties and lots of people requesting an update on how the properties Andrew and Laura bought were doing. Did they regret buying them? Were they planning to buy more?We heard you. So here it is, 3 rental properties and 2.5 years later, we’re spilling the tea.Full Article HereShow NotesRaspberry Blush McKeller and Friends: A delicious sourNew England Style IPA own brewRoofstock - A Marketplace for Turnkey Rental PropertiesSimple Wealth - Research and evaluate rental properties and build a profitable real estate business.Learn more about your ad choices.

Finally a segment for the 99% of us who don't have a ton of money to get started in investing. Most podcasts about investing are talking as tho you have 100k in the bank.
