Your local major league sports team might just be the biggest welfare queen in town. There are lots of ways team owners manage to part cities from their taxpayers’ money. Often, a local or state government will simply shoulder the cost … Continue reading

For the past two years, I have picked out one company every month that I would be putting my own Roth IRA money behind. So far, those picks have returned over 19%, and they are beating the S&P 500 by just over 3 percentage points. This month, however, I’m breaking form and buying three stocks for my Roth, as my recent sale of Lumber Liquidators– which returned 250% — has freed up more cash to invest.
