Two Investment Resources the DIY Investor Should Know

One of the very best ways to follow personal blogs is through weekend reading lists. Bloggers take the time to list interesting blogs of the week, usually with a short summary, making it easy to find posts that you might want to read. A good example is Dividend Monk's "Weekend Reading." This is resource #1.

In Dividend Monk's list this week is the "Dividend Calendar" from the "I Love Dividends" site. This second resource lists companies expected to pay dividends each month. For example, if you need income in August- you might want to pick from the following:
Gen. Mills

Notice that some companies are listed by ticker symbol and that they link to their Yahoo! Finance site, making it especially easy to check their dividend-paying record and yield. To me, this is similar to the popular bond ladders that investors like to create.

My readers know that I prefer low cost funds. I do, however, recognize that there is more than one way to skin a cat and that some investors have the time, know-how, and resources to pick individual stocks (especially those who are retired and need income).
