Some Light Reading for Independence Day


It has been a hectic start to the summer in the @ATXAdvisor household. In addition to our normal weekends at softball fields watching my daughter play in tournaments around Texas, we've added in a whirlwind of activities that will ultimately see my oldest off to college soon.

We just got back from his New Student Conference and are about to leave on a vacation with a couple of his close friends and their families to celebrate their matriculation from high school. All of that is to say I have not had time to write much in the Accountable Update lately. 

While market volatility has made for some interesting drama this week, it certainly hasn't been anything out of the ordinary. The bright side, if things end today where they opened, most ATX Portfolio Advisors® won't be paying any advisory fees for June.  

In the meanwhile, Jake DeKinder at DFA recently wrote an interesting piece titled, "What You Pay, What You Get: Connecting Price and Expected Returns". Enjoy the light read and have a safe and happy Independence Day!
