Despite advisor’s best efforts to the contrary, many amateur investors insist on trying some variation of “timing the market” philosophy to guide their investment activity. The myth is that if you’re investing while the market is continually racking up all time high returns, surely there’s a cliff just ahead, now’s not the time to build or add to the portfolio. Congress Wealth Management’s investment team shows you how the game really works, using data extending way back to 1928 to show just what really happens during those tempting occasions when record-breaking returns can be had. Join us for an enlightening half hour that will help you set client’s straight on how this type of timing error can create some challenges.
We wanted to take a very close look at the data historically going all the way back to 1928 on the S&P 500 just to really get a better sense of exactly how the market behaves after hitting an all-time high . . . either trying to dispel or confirm whether or not investors should be fearful when that’s happening. And I think the results, as we looked at this were pretty interesting and maybe even will be surprising for some people.Congress Wealth Management’s Investment Team
