Thought of the Day

After yesterday massive intraday swing and on the heels of a few manic months, it appears we are in a new risk regime.

Meaning we will be locked in a battle of major market swings both high and low, which will lead to a grinding out of lower than expected returns.

During the late afternoon swoon I remembered the words of Warren Buffett from his recent letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders:

“During such scary periods, you should never forget two things:

First, widespread fear is your friend as an investor, because it serves up bargain purchases.

Second, personal fear is your enemy. It will also be unwarranted.”


When you see the negative headline or check your account balances and that pit appears in your stomach, remember the above comments and work to calm your emotions. This is something that is very difficult, but with practice you can begin to have more favorable REACTIONS to this STIMULUS.
