The media follows the saying..”When it bleeds it leads”. When investors react to forecasts provided by the media they instinctively react, often in the wrong direction. Remember Wall Street makes money when investors move or trade their money. It does not matter whether you make money or not.

The following quote also comes from”- the QAIB report: “As this report has shown for the 17th time in as many years, mutual fund investors consistently underperform the relevant index. The report also shows that most of this loss in performance is due to psychological factors that translate into poor timing of their buys and sells (investor behavior).”-If you are already a client of mine, you know I am not a fan of Managed Mutual Funds. There is a reason that Wall Street spends more money promoting Managed Mutual Funds than any other investment. They are expensive to the shareholder. That translates into enormous fee’s to the Mutual Fund Company compared to other types of investments. These fees add to the dismal performance of these funds. There are better ways to achieve equity exposure with much lower fees.
