I hope everyone had a nice, long weekend from the markets. For us, it was certainly an Easter Sunday that we’ll never forget. However strange it might have felt, it truly is remarkable how technology is being utilized to make the most of a difficult situation.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Be Wary of the Sharpshooter’ – Tim Mullooly – Living With Money
- In my latest blog post, I warn investors of “experts” who will claim to have seen all of this market turmoil coming. The “sharpshooter” who draws the bullseye around his shot after the fact is no real marksman, just a liar.
‘Is Now the Time to Buy Individual Stocks?’ – Peter Lazaroff
- Seeing such large companies stock price drop so significantly has people wondering if now is the right time to buy them “on sale”. Peter writes about the risks involved with picking individual stocks, even ones who you’d never think would go bankrupt.
‘Green Shoots’ – Tom Mullooly – Jersey Shore Financial Advisor
- Despite what you see in the headlines everyday, there are signs of promise in the markets. Tom highlights one “green shoot”, and writes about why there is reason to be optimistic despite everything going on.
‘Two Reasons the Fed is So Polarizing’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- The Fed takes a lot of unnecessary heat during times of crisis. Ben writes about why people love to make the Fed the scapegoat and who you REALLY should be mad at for not helping out folks on Main Street.
