I like Naked Juice. I read on My Money Blog they got sued for some minor misrepresentation. I must have spent at least $100 on them in the last six years. Of course I don’t have receipts. I filed a claim under the "no proof" category.
I read these other interesting articles this week:
How Bad Does a 401(k) Have to Be Before It Makes Sense to Skip It? by Mike Piper at Oblivious Investor

Dealing With Vanguard’s Frequent Trading Policy by Michael at Financial Ramblings
I got that warning when I sold muni bond fund in order to buy muni ETF on discount. It only affects buying back the same fund. It doesn’t stop you from selling additional shares.
The myths actually all have some origin. As much as I like credit unions, I would say they don’t have ATMs at places people expect, don’t have the best technology, don’t have branches at places people expect, and do have lower penalties. How much those things matter is a different question.
Waiting to Invest Doesn’t Make Things Any Easier by Mike Piper at Oblivious Investor
It doesn’t make it any easier but it can make you buy at a lower price. It all depends on which way the market goes while you wait, which can be up, down, or flat. I was lucky in getting a good price when I made my 2013 IRA contribution on June 20 instead of January 2. It was close to the lowest price this year so far.

Why CDs can still be better than bonds by Allan Roth at CBS MoneyWatch
Do Callable CDs Make Sense in Today’s Rate Environment? by Ken Tumin at DepositAccounts.com
They can make sense if you are paid enough for giving them the right to redeem early.
Passive index investing feels wrong by The Investor at Monevator
It does. It’s counter to our life experience. Usually the more you practice and pay attention, the better you are at it. Only in investing you can take a ride and let others do the work.
