≈ The Coast is Never Clear – Ever≈
Pay attention to the financial media long enough and you’ll discover the lot of them are Chicken Littles. Like the fowl protagonist of the children’s tale, they run to and from spreading fear and panic across the land. According to the punditry class, we’re always a banana peel away from annihilation.
Consider the lengthy list of crises that have come and gone over the past year. Covid-19, a global economic recession, the divisive presidential election, richly priced equities, and now – inflation. The passage of one apocalypse doesn’t bring peace and calm to the fore. It simply passes the baton to the next crisis that investors must worry about.
Investing in the modern age (as with any era, really) requires a willingness to take risk in the face of uncertainty. If you’re sitting on piles of cash, waiting until the “coast is clear,” then consider today’s message your reality check. The cost is NEVER clear.
But here’s the good news. Stocks reward you for your bravery. Investors willing to hold equities through thick and thin over the past decade have been rewarded with double-digit annual returns. What has your cash done for you?
