I lost money on my investments until I learned how to invest. When money is involved, people tend to be naive and foolish. The more the money, the worse people's actions/outcomes.
Now a days, I am ready when opportunity knocks. Does this make me a lazy investor? What is the outcome of chasing opportunity? There will always be more opportunities if you are ready.
I'm the guilty conscience of all the world's overconfident stock tip subscription bloggers, financial advisors, hobbyists, and market pundits. In a rare moment of honest self-reflection, I admit that the following popular activities add no long term value compared to index funds:
Paying for stock tip subscriptions.
Obsessing about dividends or dividend streaks.
Scrounging income by selling options.
Forecasting interest rates, commodity prices, and stock market returns.
Paying an advisor 1% of assets under management to create a portfolio of mutual funds.
Following consensus superstitions such as support levels and resistance.
Believing that valuation graphs identify undervalued stocks.
Thinking that beating the S&P 500 for several years predicts future outperformance.
Laboriously building a portfolio that's like an existing no-effort ETF but without the benefit of diversification.

I'm a marketing and product strategist for small to medium size growth businesses. I love buying into dividend producing businesses that have some growth too. If you know a business that has hit it's 52 week low, has a dividend over 3% and is ripe to rebound then message me. I'm always happy to learn about new buying opportunities.
