Panicking Never Works!

If I had to put a number on it, I would say that at least 75% of your success as an investor will come down to your temperament.

Can you remain calm while others panic?

Can you see the big picture while everyone else focuses on the headline?

Can you be greedy when others are fearful?

Can you commit to the long term while everyone else is fixated on the quarter?

Each of these questions sound simple in theory.  But doing it when your account is getting decimated is another story.

None of us has a crystal ball and can say with certainty what the outcome of any investment will be.  One thing I know for certain, though, is that historically, the real money in the stock market is measured in decades.  Not weeks, months or even years.

 

My book, The Stock Market is For Everyone, is a short guide for the beginning, inexperienced investor that is easy to understand and can be put into action immediately.

Don’t Sleep On 3D Printing!

Looking for an investment theme that may be at the beginning stages of a mega bull run?  Take a look at 3D printing stocks!

The demand for 3D printing won’t come from retail customers. but from commercial ones.  I’m not sure if you’re aware that over 90% of hearing aids made today are 3D printed.  3D printing could revolutionize manufacturing as we know it.

Here’s why:

1. It shortens design to production time.

2. It shifts power to designers.

3. It creates products with less waste.

4. It enables radically new architecture.

5. It significantly reduces manufacturing cost.

6. It creates AI-enhanced architecture.

3D printing is currently a $6 to 8 billion market.  The growth outlook is anywhere from $94 billion to $400 billion by 2023.  Now I don’t know, if that will happen…but that’s insane growth!

I posted last spring about some stocks I feel are winners in the 3D printing sector.  I will be posting an update on them soon.
