Weekly Links: January 27, 2013

Each Sunday I highlight the Carnivals I participated in over the past week, along with any notable articles that I came across. For those readers not familiar with carnivals, it's where personal finance bloggers submit their best articles of the week with one blog serving as the host. The entries are separated into various categories such as Investing, Credit, Debt, Budgeting, Frugality, Wealth Building, Money Management, Financial Planning, Insurance, Taxes, The Economy, Real Estate, et. al.

- Disciplined Approach to Investing presented Running Of The Bulls
- Barel Karsan presented Apple As The New RIM
- FI Fighter presented Portfolio Update: New Subtraction (CAT, CSX, PSX, and BP; January 24-25, 2013)
