  • Johns Hopkins: Stay the Course with Personal Finances during Pandemic “If you’re committed to a long-term passive investing strategy (as most of us should be), my advice remains the same: Stay the course! Don’t chase speculative investments. Continue to make your regular monthly contributions to retirement plans and maintain a focus on well-diversified, low-cost indexed funds. This is the worst time to succumb to emotions and resort to impulsive actions. The key with passive strategies is to avoid trying to time the markets. You need to be invested, and your horizon is not next month or next year or even three years down the road, but 20 and 30 years in the future. Remember that those friends who loudly announce all their “brilliant” trading decisions are self-censoring. They’re neglecting to tell you about all their failed trades.
  • Barry Ritholtz: Maybe Mr. Market Is Rational After All…“On some level, it’s completely understandable why many people believe that markets are no longer tethered to reality because the performance doesn’t correspond to their personal experience, which is one of job loss, economic hardship and personal despair. But what’s important to understand is that indexes based on market-cap weighting are often driven by the gains of just a handful of companies. But one thing the market isn’t is irrational or disconnected from is the reality of market capitalization, and its impact on stock indexes.
