For us, it is self-evident to share our knowledge about investing, because we have learned so much from people out there who shared their knowledge altruistically. For this reason we upload our investment theses and what we read in the process. So here are some links what we think is helpful for you and your thoughts:   A great blog with a post on the current stock market bubble:  http://csinvesting.org/2013/11/25/ding-ding-ding-the-bells-are-ringing-search/   An interesting article in The Economist on how uncertainty dulls investors: http://www.economist.com/news/finance-and-economics/21589859-how-economic-uncertainty-dulls-investment-holding-tomorrow. It is based on this scientific paper (in case you love economics): http://www.stanford.edu/~nbloom/roes_7923.pdf   A very good article, also in the Economist on Europe’s electricity providers and the challenges of the green energy. It may help you to find a fair value for utilities: http://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21587782-europes-electricity-providers-face-existential-threat-how-lose-half-trillion-euros   Finally, to keep in mind that  there is more out there than money, a quote from my favorite author:  
“If you worship money and things — if they are where you tap real meaning in life — then you will never have enough. Never feel you have enough. It’s the truth. Worship your own body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly, and when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally plant you. On one level, we all know this stuff already — it’s been codified as myths, proverbs, clichés, bromides, epigrams, parables: the skeleton of every great story. The trick is keeping the truth up-front in daily consciousness. Worship power — you will feel weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to keep the fear at bay. Worship your intellect, being seen as smart — you will end up feeling stupid, a fraud, always on the verge of being found out. And so on.” – David Foster Wallace, This Is Water
  Which leads us to this interesting blog: http://gooddaytolive.wordpress.com/2013/11/05/on-kids-and-happiness/   If you like this post please leave us a comment or send us an email and we will try to have one of these posts every two or three weeks!
