Smart Reads of The Week: Building a Retirement Nest Egg This Easter

Easter will soon be upon us.

As children are filling their Easter baskets with chocolate eggs this Sunday, as investors, we want to fill our retirement nest eggs with good, solid stocks that can ensure that our golden years are financially secure.

The term “nest egg” is said to be derived from the practice of farmers putting eggs into the nests of hens to induce them to lay more eggs.

Similarly, setting aside money and investing it well will enable you to grow your money into a much larger sum over time.

Building an income-generating portfolio will speed up that cycle even more.

By reinvesting your dividends, an investor can compound the value of his portfolio, perpetuating and enhancing the virtuous cycle.

While giving a hen an egg might prompt her to produce even more eggs, a farmer has to make sure that the eggs are good eggs. Likewise, an investor needs to make sure that the eggs (companies) in his retirement nest egg are good businesses.

And that’s what we’re here for.

Here is a list of our top articles for the week.
