Investors Must Ride the Roller Coaster Market
In the Miami Herald, July 16, 2006, Benjamin Tobias wrote an article titled Investors Must Ride the Roller Coaster Market. Ben compared the year-to-date stock market volatility and investment returns of 2006 to the results of 2004 and 2005. He noted that 2006 had better returns at mid-year even though the stock markets have been more volatile. His recommendation was to remove emotion from decision-making by following your investment policy. Ben urged all investors that do not have a written plan to develop one either through self-education or the use of a qualified professional.
