Top 5 Articles of Feb 2009

  1. RRSP Tip: Carry Forward Your RRSP Tax Deduction – This may be a little known fact for some investors, but you can optimize your RRSP contribution tax deduction by carrying it forward to a higher tax year. Check out the article for some examples of how this strategy would work.
  2. How to Take Advantage of the Market After the Crash of 2008 – This was a guest post by Ed Rempel explaining the patterns of returns after major market corrections.  The picture is worth a thousand words!
  3. International Dividend ETF’s – As a fan of dividend investing, I realized that I had very little exposure to international dividends.  As I don’t know a lot about international stocks, the best bet would be to use diversified ETF’s for the international dividend exposure. This article is a summary of my preliminary research.
  4. The Frugal Dog – The Cost of Dog Ownership – Are you considering dog ownership? This is a great post by Kathryn explaining some of the costs associated with caring for a dog. Make sure to check out the comments as there seems to be a lot of readers with pets!
  5. Holding a Mortgage within an RRSP – This was a post that came about from a reader question that I received. I decided to do some digging into holding a mortgage within an RRSP as it seems like it could be a good idea, however, I discovered that the fees can be fairly high. Check out the article for some highlights and pitfalls of this strategy.

    Wow. A Canadian focused site. Excellent. And all the way from ETF’s to dog ownership (I’ve got both). And that’s only February. Thanks for the resource.
