It’s Back…

Posted in: Economics, General, Stock Market, Thought of the Week

Mike Sorrentino, our Chief Strategist, wrote an article that explains what conservative investors are going through at the moment with all of this market volatility. They have three options: go to cash, hide in ultra-low volatile investments, or accept some level of volatility. The problem with cash and ultra-low volatile investments is that you are failing to beat inflation. Essentially, your only option is to accept some level of volatility. However, volatility and risk are not the same thing. Volatility is simply a measure of emotion and right now it is high. According to Mike, the underlying risk of a recession is still very low and that is what’s important. Please take a moment to read the article and remind yourself that patience is what makes long-term investors so successful.
