Let's take a quick look at the performance numbers touted by the media and ask ourselves one simple question -- Am I capturing the same return?
Follow-up questions may include, but are not limited to -- Is my number better? Is it worse? Am I even aware of what my number was last month? Last quarter? Last year?
My favorite and least asked -- Am I still getting sold on "the relationship" with my advisor that I've lost perspective on the point of the business engagement? Sadly, this is massively common because the industry has convinced investors that somehow this should supersede value or insight...talk about a slap in the face to capitalism.
Let me know what you think and PLEASE don't take my word for it or judge me based upon a single qualification on a CV, or something I accomplished in middle school or even something from last year...we are only as good as our last challenge bested.
The truth is, if a so-called professional can't show you in real-time where a particular stock or market is headed, then they are guessing (and sadly most are because they have mastered a skill set in sales, relation-building, or just a slick haircut, as opposed to reading the markets which can take a lifetime to develop).
If you don't believe investing can be this simple -- then set up a time on our calendar for a "7 minute non-pitch" where you can pick any stock and we'll show you how to buy, sell or hold it like a hedge fund manager (a really savvy one, not the guy in his parent's basement writing code for an algo that works for a month then blows up).
Or just keep making the same mistakes so the pros can keep eating your lunch. Either way ----> It's Your Time, Your Money and Ultimately Your Choice.
We wish you the best on your journey to becoming a more opportunistic investor!
