Here is our end-of-a-rocky-week collection of interesting reads on investing and personal finance. Enjoy!

And from the bloggers and pundits...

  • Who benefits from a market correction? (Ben Carlson, A Wealth of Common Sense). For anyone not nearing retirement, there's a bright side to the market pain.
     
  • The stock-market meltdown that everyone saw coming (Barry Ritholtz, Bloomberg). Post-downturn explanations tend to conveniently match pre-downturn theories — no matter what any particular theory may be.
     
  • Time horizon vs. endurance (Morgan Housel, Collaborative Fund). Having a long-distance goal doesn't mean you can simply nap through the short term.
     
  • Learning from the mistakes made by legendary investors (Michael Batnick, American Assn. of Individual Investors). Material from Batnick's recent book, Big Mistakes: The Best Investors and Their Worst Investments (Bloomberg Press, 2018).
     
  • Switching Medigap plans is tricky (Squared Away Blog). There's a maze of regulations that determine whether, when, and how you can transfer from one insurer's Medigap plan to another insurer's Medigap plan. Interestingly, switching is easier in some states than in others.
