Core-Satellite Investing Tips
Core-satellite investing allows someone to passively invest while also adding some active positions, according to www.inthegameinvesting.com blogger and investing expert Theresa Bedford in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.
The Core: While core-satellite investing allows investors to beat the market without timing the market, it does increase risk and requires research on your part, according to Bedford.
Above: Bedford says that dollar-cost averaging, another investing strategy, involves investing a fixed amount of money over time in the same funds and stocks.
Pros and Cons: The advantage with dollar-cost averaging is that investors won’t miss out on gains, Bedford says, but it could result in an investor buying a stock when the price is high.
Final Thoughts: What investing advice does Bedford offer in 2022? Find out by listening to a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.

In an effort to grow its logistics business, JD.com (Nasdaq: JD) announced Sunday that it is acquiring Deppon Logistics (SHA: 603056).

Final Thoughts: JD.com reported negative financial earnings last week, as revenue growth slowed and expenses went up.
