I was working last weekend being extremely busy. Actually I was very busy last couple of weeks and unable to pay attention to blogging too much. I still was able to watch my investments and do some reading, but I wasn’t able to perform my regular weekly links posted every Sunday. So I do so tonight.
I often browse the internet to find ideas about investing, trading stocks, options, investing opportunities and strategies. I like to read about investors and what their investing/trading approach to create income you can live on is.

- Lending Club Year One – Compounding Income – by CI
This is an interesting review of CI’s experience with Lending Club. He writes about one phenomenon recently being experienced by many P2P investors – lack of investable notes in Lending Club. Is there a solution? I believe automation is the answer.

- A Brief Primer on Business Development Companies (BDC) Part 1: What are BDCs and why should you invest in them? – My Financial Independence Journey – by MFIJ
An interesting reading about Business development companies (BDCs). I own a few in my portfolios, one of them is PSEC. These companies may be volatile and risky investments, but very rewarding. I can’t wait for continuation of MFIJ’s series. I am interested in reading a part of what to watch in these stocks and how to evaluate them.
- Does Past Performance Matter? – A Wealth of Common Sense – by Ben
Well, as usually Ben has come with a great write up. As far as his question whether the past performance matters or not, it depends on what we are looking at. If the performance of dividend paying stock, I believe it does matter. In mutual funds it can be deceiving. Read his point of view and you would agree.
