Don’t Panic

Sam Finance 2 Comments

“The overwhelming majority of people are comfortable with consensus, but successful investors tend to have a contrarian bent. Successful investors like stocks better when they’re going down. When you go to a department store or a supermarket, you like to buy merchandise on sale, but it doesn’t work that way in the stock market. In the stock market, people panic when stocks are going down, so they like them less when they should like them more. When prices go down, you shouldn’t panic, but it’s hard to control your emotions when you’re overextended, when you see your net worth drop in half and you worry that you won’t have enough money to pay for your kids’ college.”

  1. You appear to be really knowledgeable regarding money and investing, and I usually benefit from browsing your website. I am contemplating adding more Swiss annuities to my retirement portfolio. What is your opinion with regards to them? Are they really as risk-free as folks say they are?
