Stock Player or Spectator: Which Stock Market Investment Strategy Should You Be Using?
Back in episode 52, we explored managed mutual funds under the microscope and investigated whether there is ever a time where managed mutual funds might make sense. In this episode, we will unpack whether there is a case to be made for investing in the stock market as a “Stock Player” (or picker) or whether you should really be a “stock spectator” and take the indexed fund or mutual fund approach.  We’ll look at a Foolish Claim by a common “Stock Picking” subscription website advocating for how YOU - regular old, entrepreneurial, do it yourself, YOU can beat the market ahead of all of the managed mutual fund managers; We’ll also look at the data to determine whether stock picking generally leads to higher returns than market indices or whether stock pickers just think they know more than everyone else; and,We’ll dive into other considerations that you should be thinking about before you take on any type of active investment involvement be it stock picking, real estate wholesaling, flipping, BRRRRing (buy, renovate, rent, refinance and repeat), or just buying and holding.Exploring these ideas are important so that you can determine where you’ll receive the greatest return on your TIME investment to maximize your wealth and time freedom over the long term.What you’ll learn:We’ll look at a Foolish Claim by a common “Stock Picking” subscription website advocating for how YOU - regular old, entrepreneurial, do it yourself, YOU can beat the market ahead of all of the managed mutual fund managers;We’ll also look at the data to determine whether stock picking generally leads to higher returns than market indices or whether stock pickers just think they know more than everyone else; and,We’ll dive into other considerations that you should be thinking about before you take on any type of active investment involvement be it stock picking, real estate wholesaling, flipping, BRRRRing (buy, renovate, rent, refinance and repeat), or just buying and holding.Determine where you’ll receive the greatest return on your TIME investment to maximize your wealth and time freedom over the long term.Resources: I Will Teach You To Be Rich - Ramit Sethi Book a Discovery Call with us so we can help you overcome your current struggle and take the next step in your financial journeyFollow Kyle Pearce on LinkedIn for daily posts and conversations about business and investment. Dig into our Ultimate Investment Book ListDownload our Wealth Building BlueprintInterested in Joint Venture Opportunities?For those interested in being considered for potential Joint Venture (JV) opportunities, reach out to us here.Get in touch with Kyle to review your financial situation through a discovery call.

Looking at Mutual Funds Under the Microscope
In this episode of the podcast, Jon Orr and Kyle Pearce dig into the pros and cons of investing in managed mutual funds versus their benchmark index funds. Despite the common messaging in the media surrounding the high management fees and the inability for any managed fund to consistently beat the market from year to year, we look to unpack some of the potential benefits that managed mutual funds might provide for those seeking a more hands-off approach. In order to dig in more deeply, we share some sample analysis of the performance of a few managed mutual funds over a decade and get more specific as to what the media could be saying when they claim that mutual funds don’t consistently beat the performance of their benchmark index.As you’ll learn in this episode, some managed funds do outperform their benchmark indexes over longer periods of time and therefore push back on the claim that one should always consider index funds over managed mutual funds for their retirement, education, or other investment savings accounts. Which route should you go? Let’s take a dive into actively managed mutual funds vs. benchmark index funds and determine what might be the best fit for you based on your specific goals and investor profile. What you’ll learn:What are managed mutual funds and benchmark index funds? Are benchmark index funds always the better option than a managed mutual fund?Should I be ditching my “big bank” managed mutual fund? Does a mutual fund with a high Management Expense Ratio (MER) always matter? What really matters when it comes to passive investing in the stock and bond market?Resources: I Will Teach You To Be Rich - Ramit Sethi With the Odds on Their Side, They Still Couldn’t Beat the Market [NY Times]Mutual Funds That Consistently Beat the Market?

Should I Invest In a RRSP or TFSA?
In this episode of the Invested Teacher Podcast, we delve into the weeds to discuss which government tax incentivized investment vehicle in Canada will best serve our Invested Student audience: the Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) or the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). We will take some time to dig into some specific cases including those in “golden handcuff” careers with Defined Benefit Pension Plan (DBPP) in your job and whether or not you should be putting all of your investment eggs into the RRSP basket or whether looking to the TFSA as a better place to build on that defined benefit pension plan.We’ll also share why we’re big fans of using the TFSA for your longer term, growth-focused investments, while keeping the RRSP for your safer and steady assets. However, we won’t hold back on sharing why an RRSP can feel a bit like an "investment jail," especially if you're thinking your income tax bracket during retirement might be the same or higher than it is currently.Finally, we’ll be talking about the impact inflation might have on your income tax bracket during retirement and some creative ways to use your RRSPs with strategies like The Smith Maneuver to unlock some of the dead equity in your primary residence to still benefit from the tax deferral power.Sit back and get ready to take a trip through the TFSA vs. RRSP maze with a promise to give you some great tips for every circumstance. What you’ll learn:What is a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) and how does a RRSP work?What is a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and how does a TFSA work?Why those in “golden handcuff” careers with a Defined Benefit Pension Plan (DBPP) might hold off on dumping all of their investment funds into their RRSP;Why a TFSA is the better spot for your growth-focused investments and your RRSP for safer, more conservative investments; Why an RRSP might be considered a “jail” for your investment funds, especially if you feel that your tax bracket may be the same or higher in retirement; How inflation alone may push you up into higher tax brackets by retirement even if your income has only increased by a Cost of Inflation Allowance (COLA);Why an RRSP is a fantastic idea for those interested in putting the “dead equity” from their primary residence to work; and,Is it better to use equity from your home to fund your RRSP or to apply The Smith Maneuver?Resources: Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) overview of the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) overview of the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)Episode 44: Saving Taxes and Accelerating Your Investments With The Smith ManeuverBook a Discovery Call Analysis Paralysis is REAL!
