Securities/Trial Lawyer, Formerly Broker etc in the Industry. 30-plus years experience in markets, investing, and related finance topics. Formerly FINRA Chairperson, Arbitrator. Value Investor on Long positions; Derivatives Trader over 30 years. Private Investor. Nobody will care for or take better care of YOUR money than YOU. Beware of Investment Advisors, Mutual Funds, and uncorroborated success stories from anyone that wants to 'take care of YOUR money'. When all else fails; use Common Sense.
Anyone that says they can predict the future is either a fool, off their medication, or a con artist.
I do not invest in Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds or ETFs. If I can't manage my money consistently better than an institutional money manager, I should be ashamed of myself!
Momentum stocks are usually a bad investment b/c naive investors BORROW ON MARGIN to buy them and rarely have the discipline to sell them when the momentum subsides and the shares fall significantly. If you have to own the newest/best current momentum stock, no Margin and make the holding(s) a very small percentage of your overall portfolio. Finally, even a Momentum stock should have EARNINGS!!! Share value based on Revenue and Blue Skies is a recipe for disaster.
It should be MANDATORY that any guest recommending buying, selling, or trading equities on CNBC, FOX, or Bloomberg publish their portfolio and the results of their picks over the prior 1 year so that the viewing audience can evaluate whether these self-anointed 'experts' have performed well enough to be making recommendations to millions of viewers. That includes CNBC's 'fast money' and other segment guests. If that were to happen, it would show these self-anointed experts as charlatans in most instances in my opinion.
