After spiking downward the night of the election the S&P 500 has gone up 400 points or 20%. And if you picked your stocks well you have done even better.

Why Do People Make Bad Investments?

There are people who invested a few thousand dollars in Microsoft when it went public and saw their investments multiply in value 890 fold. And there are folks who invested millions with Bernie Madoff and lost everything in his Ponzi scheme. Ten thousand dollars in the initial Microsoft IPO would be worth $8.9 million today while ten thousand with Bernie would be long gone. Today we consider why do people make bad investments?

Herd Effect on Global Investing

What Do You Do When Market Winners Start to Lose?

The stock market rally this year has been largely driven by the high tech darlings known as the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google). The first take of many investors after Trump’s election was that industrial, construction related and bank stocks would benefit from his proposed economic stimulus measures. However, all of that has been slow to come if not absent as scandal and inefficiency drag the White House into the muck. Now the realization seems to have hit the market that the high tech darlings may be a little too highly priced and they have all dipped together. […]
