Stupid Investment Headlines
We have a track record of calling out BS & telling it like it is on the Women & Money Café. This episode is all about news headlines that drives us crazy. We’re joined by our investment guru, Tsitsi.
These headlines are designed to make you do one of two things, either act out of fear or out of greed. Not how to make good financial decisions.
Number 1 rule is to remember that the headlines are there to get your attention because that’s how they make money.
Dimensional’s Tune Out the Noise video
3 supercharged growth stocks down 80% – 93% that billionaires can’t stop buying – the train has already left the platform, and do you really have a lot in common with billionaires?
A low-risk way to beat inflation – sounds innocent enough? Article goes on describe an investment which in no right-thinking person’s mind could be classed as low risk.
Should I sell my house before prices crash or wait for the next boom? You can’t predict market crashes and booms. This is part of a much wider narrative going about about home ownership that we don’t like.
A recession is imminent, what and when to buy – there is no one size fits all solution to recession. Tsitsi’s advice is to have a mental checklist for yourself, and if in doubt, get a professional to look over your portfolio.
