Weekend Reading – July 27, 2014

A learning mind is always open to new ideas, thoughts and endeavors in life and there is no frontier that is beyond human race. Here are some of the best articles that I enjoyed this week and they can sprout seeds of new thinking or reinforce existing ones.

Buffet and Pickens Love This Bargain Energy Stock By Street Authority
This is an interesting article by Marshall where he talks about Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) focus on an energy company: Suncor Energy (SU) and how this could be a $1 trillion dollar sector opportunity, besides the familiar Buffet’s love for Coca-Cola (KO) and Wells Fargo (WFC) 🙂

Frugality: The New Fanciness By MMM
Ever green MrMoneyMustache explains how Frugality is new Fanciness before it was like… they are attempting to show off their wealth for the benefit of all the fine ladies around here. There could be no better reason than that, hey-hey 🙂 , just kidding for a sec, we are frugal.It is a great read and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Building A Snowball By Dividend Mantra
In this article, Jason has beautifully explained building a growing snowball and could not agree more as I’ve been talking about Snowball effect since long time, where a small ball of snow (a small initial dividend buys more shares) that is rolling down hills, gathers more snow (increasing dividends due to more shares) with ever-growing speed (due to growing earnings) and becomes a self-sustaining machine that can support your rich lifestyle. Its a great read as always.

I blamed my wife for our messy house, I was wrong for many reasons By The Washington Post
This was a hilarious post and thought it would be a fun and mind provoking read for loving spouses 😉 Do not blame me if I was wrong either. Hey, honesty is always the best policy 🙂

Full Disclosure: Long on securities as mentioned above.

Thanks for reading.
