Biggest companies by decade

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Lists, Web finds

Saw this table of the biggest companies by decade tweeted recently. The lists of companies and theme summary titles of each decade are too good not to save and share – will be very keen to see what these companies are in 2030!

Updated List of HKEX-Listed Stocks With Dividend And Ratio Links

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Lists

Some of the most boring, but most useful posts on this website are simple, static lists of stocks with ready-to-click links to more information on them. Today, I wanted to run an updated list of HKEX-listed stocks with links to their dividend histories on AAStocks, and to some fundamental ratios on their Reuters pages. The […]

US Dividend Aristocrats, August 2019

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Lists

“Dividend Aristocrats” typically refer to stocks that have consistently paid and raised their dividends for many years, often 25 or more. This list of US dividend aristocrats comes straight from the holdings of the ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Dividend ETF “NOBL“, which also ranked in my earlier list of top S&P 500 ETFs. The […]

Top S&P 500 ETFs as of 2019 Q2

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Investing, Lists

I have long argued that the S&P 500 is an overrated, overused stock market index benchmark, while also admitting it is still one of the best constructed and balanced benchmarks globally.Β  By comparison, the flagship benchmarks of Hong Kong, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and other countries tend to be far more lopsided with industry concentrations in […]

Retire Inspired author Chris Hogan recently recorded a noteworthy podcast and YouTube episode (embedded below) titled “11 things millionaires don’t invest in”.

International REITs by Country

International REITs by Country 2019

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Lists

In my last post, I listed over 500 real estate investment trusts (REITs) by sector (office, retail, residential, hospitals, etc.). I felt another valuable organization of a REIT list would be to instead sort the top international REITs by country, then by market cap, rather than alphabetically across countries. By “International REITs”, I mean REITs […]

Top Performing Mutual Funds – 10 years ending 2018

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Lists

One of the worst mistakes beginning investors often make is to try and choose top performing mutual funds based solely on past performance. While past performance can be a useful indicator of how a fund invests and what it invests in (high risk and return vs low risk and return), it is all too often […]
