July’s Hits

Jonathan Clements

WHAT INTRIGUED readers during the steamy days of July? Here are last month’s most popular articles:

  • Many retirees resist taking out a reverse mortgage because of the stigma involved. Get over it, advises Mike Drak.
  • “One clear takeaway: Only collect things for enjoyment rather than as an investment,” says John Yeigh. “Another is that the sale of a long-term collection can be annoyingly time-consuming.”
  • If you just received a financial windfall or you’re planning to leave one to your heirs, check out the six pointers from Adam Grossman.
  • Many pension plans are underfunded, but one has assets that are triple its obligations, says Greg Spears. The credit belongs to Warren Buffett.
  • Want to put your portfolio on the right track—or make sure you aren’t off course? Adam Grossman answers nine key investment questions.
  • Steve Abramowitz has owned 30 rental properties over the past four decades. His contention: Being a compassionate landlord isn’t just the ethical thing to do. It’s also financially smart.
  • Nobody likes to sell when the financial markets are down sharply. But Adam Grossman says there are at least four situations where it might make sense to do so.
