Latest turbulence tests investors' nerves; advisers urge calm ...
Financial advisers find themselves dispensing calming words and holding hands with uneasy investors as the stock market extends its biggest decline in more than a year. “It seems a lot of people are just expecting things to continue to unravel and get worse,” says Jordan Kimmel, market strategist for National Securities Corp. in Morristown, N.J. And coming so soon after the worst stock meltdown since the 1930s, though, it’s not easy to convince average investors that this too shall pass following another double-digit decline. Evidence abounds that investor jitters flared up in May. They had been quieted by the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The 4 Key Elements Of A Well-Managed Portfolio
management are all familiar to those associated with the field of investment. But what exactly does "management" mean in a general sense and what is its specific relevance within the investment context? This is an incredibly important question, but one that is seldom (if ever) raised. According to John Schermerhorn in his book "Management" (2002), "management is the process of planning, organizing, leading and controlling the use of resources to accomplish goals". Breaking the process down into the above standard four elements is the key to understanding the implications for money management. Any ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Letter to an Investor as a Young Man
Long-term investing can be very profitable, but few people reap anywhere near the maximum investment benefits possible because they make mistakes -- both of commission and omission. As a result, most people's retirements will not be as comfortable as they had hoped. Nobody knows that better than me; I’ve had more than my fair share of investment regrets. As my hero Dennis the Menace once said: "How come dumb stuff seems so smart while you’re doing it?" I’m not sure of the answer, but I think most of my investment mistakes have boiled down to four causes: (1) ego; (2) laziness; (3) recklessness; ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why is the market reacting so dramatically to the Greek financial ...
the market is fixating on a Greek default (bond yields on Greek govies going up) which makes that Greece still has to pay more for the debt it takes - Greece is part of the Euro area which has its impact on the euro currency - due to the economic crisis, Greece's GDP is not as hoped (and not enough to repay the rising interest burden) - Greece got support from EU and IMF but needs to increase the tax burden and cut in wages of government employees, which leads to strikes In a nutshell: there are just a lot of reasons why the market expects that Greece could go default. If Greece defaults, this surely has its impact on all ...
When will the Recession end? Pretty soon according to these people ...
I have a lot of institutional clients who take very seriously the idea that this recession could be permanent. In their minds, it could turn out to be more like a depression. Even when we pull out of the worst of it, we'll be stuck with year after year of slow growth. Pretty much no one thinks this recession could possibly already be over. And only a few brave souls dare to consider that it might only take another quarter or so to hit bottom. So it's just a matter of, how bad is it really? Call me crazy, but I actually think we could all end up being pretty pleasantly surprised. I admit I was one of the last ...
