Observing reports on the stock market is like watching a phony boxing match where the punches do not actually land on the other boxer. The media declares WORRY and the market reacts. In a day or two, the market bounces back and frequently sets a new high. However, the media does not care about rising markets, low unemployment rates, increasing earnings or low interest rates.  Instead they warn you “The sky is going to fall!!”

August 2019 Newsletter

A week or so ago, the markets were bouncing along at all time highs and the media was warning us of problems. “The market is over-valued”, “The market is too high.”  Sure enough, the market dropped significantly one day but climbed back in the following days.  This has been repeated many times over the market’s history. “The market climbs a wall of worry.”

So have we. When we do consider them, we reflect upon the opportunities lower markets provide.

Yes, the Market is Volatile and Unpredictable Until You Become a Long Term Investor!

February 6, 2018

I have been living with the market for a long time - not my life span, but long enough to experience fun, exciting, and frightening times. Market volatility is inevitable.  You get used to it in time…all successful investors do.
