InvestED: Ep. 67 – The Rule of 72

Here is an easy way to think about value investing:

Investing is like going to a garage sale and buying a bike in perfect shape for $50 that you could have bought for $100 at the store. What you’re buying is worth more than what you are paying.

This week on InvestED we explain the difference between investing and speculation and why not everyone agrees on their definitions. We also dive deep into the Rule of 72 and teach you how to estimate your compounding rate of return.

By popular demand, we’re also pleased to announce that InvestED is now available on the Google Play Store.

 In Episode 67 You’ll Learn:

  1. What is the difference between Investing and Speculation?
  2. Why the stock market isn’t rational all the time.
