A post I wish I could have written

Written on May 12th, 2015 by Jamesno shouts

Occasionally I come across investment articles, theoretical discussions and opinion blogs that I think are worthy of sharing.  This one in particular sums up a lot about the frustration with modern day investing and politics so well, I wish that I could have written it:  http://www.salientpartners.com/epsilontheory/post/2015/05/11/more-probably-than-not

Everyone has an opinion

Written on May 6th, 2015 by Jamesno shouts

Everyone has an opinion, but that doesn’t necessarily make it right.  I tend to caution clients that just because someone is on one of the Business Channels making a prediction, or if they are writing for a financial publication/website it doesn’t mean they are an “expert”.  We tend to think when people are interviewed they must be an “expert”.  I’m not even sure what qualifies someone as an expert, but thought I would share this front page of marketwatch this morning.  The headline screams oil going to $30 a barrel, and right below we see that oil futures are at a yearly high.  I find this sort of funny.  Maybe oil does go to $30, but it might hit $100 before that.  For investors the best thing they can do is ignore the financial entertainment media.
