The Best of The Small Investor


The Small Investor has now been published for about a year and a half.  It that time there have been tens of thousands of views – thank you!  I hope that it has been informative and useful.

Today I thought I’d post some links to the posts that have received the most views.

The top post is How Much Money Do I Need to Invest in Stocks?  In this post I go over how much money is needed to invest in both individual stocks and mutual funds.  This post has had over 2800 views.

The second most-popular post was Is a Small Investor at a Disadvantage?  In this post I discuss how the small investor is actually at an advantage ot he mutual fund manager since he/she can invest in just his/her first picks while the manager needs to buy everything because of the amount of money he has to invest.  Apparently there are a lot of people wondering about this since there were over 1600 views.

Next in line is How Inflation Affects the Stock Market.  This has been a very popular post of late since there is a lot of deserved worry about inflation picking up.  This post has had over 1400 views.
