"Are you following investment wisdom or financial headlines?
One financial magazine listed 50 funds in five years that were great, best, most dependable, or number one. However, none of the lists contained the same funds. The fund that named the best this year wasn't on the lists the four previous years. So what are we to do? Change funds every year? Here are some headlines you'll never see in a financial magazine.
- Time in the market is more important than timing of the market.
- Don't invest until you have clearly defined goals.
- Investors with trusted financial advisors outperform do-it-yourselfers over meaningful time horizons. "
