Weekend Roundup – Feb. 2nd 2014

This week I am holed up in the hospital taking care of my mother who broke her leg last Wednesday. The advantage of not having an i-pad or smart phone is that I get to sit in front of the computer only once a day for about 30 minutes or so. It gives me time to read. I am currently reading a book on portfolio management (FlipKart non-affiliate link), and this has given me many new calculator ideas.

In any case I already have many suggestions from readers to work on.

  1. Sharad Singh who runs TheFundoo shared on FB this interesting article he has co-authored on the shortcomings of the Sharpe ratio, a commonly used mutual fund risk measure: The Sharpe-less-ness, when the lighthouse misguides
  2. A couple of interesting posts from safetrade.in

    Please contribute to the Weekend roundup:

    For a variety of reasons I am not able to spend time reading topics on personal finance. So I don't get to share resources in the weekend roundup posts more often.

    If you have some useful resources on personal finance (preferably unconventional and less popular ones) please feel free to send them to me. I will make them part of the roundup posts with full credit to you.

      It's so difficult to see our parents getting old and we doing a role reversal. Hope your mother recovers and is back home soon!

        Thanks Kirti. I could write a book about taking care of sick parents. In any case I have some interesting experiences in hospital. Will write about this soon.
