Successful InvestingSubmitted by AMSG on March 14th, 2018
One of the biggest obstacles to successful investing, in my opinion, is ‘information overload.’ Investors often get wound up in day-to-day events and news stories, which frequently err on the side of sensational. The news you might hear on CNBC, for instance, tends to focus on stocks or other securities that are either ‘hot now!’ or possibly headed for a major downturn. It’s either a big opportunity or a dire warning. Rarely do I see pundits urging investors to keep their cool while maintaining a well-diversified, long-term view to portfolio management. That type of advice is way too boring, and it doesn’t sell newspapers.
