Ignore the Media
How DO Many People Invest?
The financial and popular media define what investing is for many people. Whether the message is crafted by a financial publication, a website, or a cable program, it often targets human emotion.
Consider the messages in these sample headlines from major publications. Some prey on an investor’s fear and anxiety about the future, while others suggest you can tap into special knowledge to gain quick, easy wealth.
Investors who are tempted to act on these media messages should remember the media is selling entertainment, not real financial advice.
