A Saturday Happy for the Slabbed Nation

While we are stuffing more content into the pipeline I took a second to indulge my passion of reading the financial blogs. Our friends at Greenbackd found an updated study which compares the performance returns of value stocks versus “glamour” stock since 1968 that is well worth the read.

For those that claim complete ignorance of the financial markets and have no idea of the significance of Benjamin Graham and Jesse Livermore (and have most likely lost  a small fortune in the our current secular bear market that began in Quarter 1 2000) you can find (part) of the bottom line of the study’s results here. The other part of the bottom line is that it does not take genius to invest, rather controlling the emotions of greed, hope and fear will take a “dumb” man further than an otherwise smart but greedy MBA.
