While the title of the blog is Cheap, Lazy Investing, the URL does start with money, and a friend of mine says that investing in one’s own happiness has the highest return. To that end, I check a series of sites everyday for bargains (and one just to get a daily drawing entry). They are listed below. The order is the order in which they were added to my daily check reminder and not any other order:

A Good Cheap, Lazy Strategy…Reference

In my IT blog and ezine articles I write quite extensively on things that I do instinctively, trying to codify them for others to replicate (and for the money and notoriety). On this blog, not so much. Honestly, I make it public hoping to help the reader. I originally also hoped for the reader to help me with comments, but that has yet to happen (not counting the semi-weakly offer of cheap Viagra).  But, I digress (mostly because it is fun).

What I came to blog today is a link to an educational article on planning how much to invest on given stocks. Ignoring the fact that I did better when I didn’t (because it was more a matter of when I didn’t rather than how I didn’t), I can honestly recommend reading it for your own education.

Seems to me this recession came in on an oil price spike and is going out the same way. Seems like 1978 – 1982 all over again.

I know I need to learn more about options as an addition to my cheap lazy approach. Heavy on the cheap and light on the lazy, but compromise is nothing. When I do get around to learning more, one place I will go back to is this article on Investor Place I saw today.

While checking on Advance America, Cash Advance Centers Inc. (AEA), I ran across the term Double Top, which I had seen before. I found an excellent article explaining the pattern at Trending 123.

Cheap, But Not Lazy Investment Resource

First, Publisher’s Clearing House is not an investment strategy. However, if all I have to do is run one of my many daily searches from their search engine to win money, why not? Funny thing is, when my daily reminder prompts me to do this it is almost always after I have done some extensive searches on everybody’s standard search engine. This means I have to get creative on what I should search for (why waste perfectly good key strokes?). So I ran a search for highest paying dividend and ran across:

Top U.S. Stocks with Highest Dividend Yield as of Mar. 13, 2010

Offsetting Capital Gains with Capital Losses

I would not suggest selling a good stock to offset a gain. I hang on to my colossal losers to offset future gains, though. It is important to keep in mind the difference between short term tax rates and long term rates. A good over-all reference article for this can be found at:
