Mike is a twenty-something guy who writes about investing over at Oblivious Investor.  Oblivious Investor is the term he uses to describe people who block out all the noise surrounding investing and focus on the things which are important. It’s Mike’s belief that most of what the media tells people about investing is irrelevant. I think he has some valid points, it’s easy to get caught up in the latest news and make emotional investing decisions rather than ones based on logic and fundamental analysis.

The thing I like about the Oblivious Investor site is that it’s like an all you can eat investing site.  Since the end of 2008 he’s focused pretty much solely on investing topics and offers regular analysis and perspective in areas such as 401ks, mutual funds, IRAs, index funds, and ETFs.  You can follow him on Twitter and subscribe to his site here for his investing updates.
