In this episode, Mark talks about “Why investors should not follow indexes”. Wall Street wants you to compare your portfolio to indexes - don’t do it. Why do people procrastinate? People get worried, people get nervous, and they put off investing. If your portfolio is appropriately allocated, you should not be worried about corrections. Allocat to the appropriate asset classes according to your goals and objectives. Some people speculate instead of investing. If you don’t know what you own and why, you probably are speculating, you’re hoping investments pay off for you.
