Dumb Headlines

Imagine a newspaper headline that said “Clocks showed five o’clock twice yesterday.”  Well, duh . . .

David Rosenberg is one of the most respected investment strategists on Wall Street.  He was interviewed by a magazine that carried the headline “There will be another big correction in the stock market.”  Well, duh . . .

There has never been a time in our economic history when that was not true.  Corrections/recessions/bear markets are routine events that come and go.  There is ALWAYS a big correction out there somewhere.  The trick is NOT to OVER-REACT.

Remember:  Corrections/recessions/bear markets are routine (if not predictable) events that come AND GO!
