What is occurring in the markets, why are they so volatile, will my investments come back up, and will they increase in value?
Each time I am presented with these questions I realize that even though I understand the processes of the markets, the external components which affect the markets, the average investor has little to no understanding. Is this because the investor is incapable, lazy, or just irresponsible? NO!
I wish to educate you in some basics of the stock market in hopes of bringing your blood pressure back down. When a company is selected it is because the company has a product or service which is needed. The management of the company carries the responsibility of running the company, expanding the product or services which will bring in more revenue. Yes, it is truly that simple.
Let me equate the purchase of a stock with that of one’s income. You receive a monthly check and you pay your obligations from this, however, you wish to have more money so you look for more streams of income. Maybe you work longer hours, work another job or make your hobby an income producer. This is the same as purchasing a stock and wanting the company to grow and expand.
What gets in the way of the process are external components. There are three obvious components which are disrupting the process and will continue to disturb it for as long as man exists: our Congress, which continues to make laws which are detrimental to capitalism; our tax codes, which are preventing opportunity for growth; and the media, which profits from fear tactics. The markets, Congress, and the rules of the game will settle and investors will benefit.
I share a piece of history which will assist you in understanding why I am so confident in the stock market and its ability to return the investors money and allow it to grow:
I know we’ve got huge deficits, major environmental problems, several social ills, and so on. And these are serious problems. Unfortunately, we’ll always have serious problems. However, equating ‘serious’ with ‘fatal’ would be to greatly underestimate this country. ‘It is a gloomy moment in history. . . never has the future seemed so dark and incalculable. The United States is beset with racial, industrial and commercial chaos, drifting we know not where. Of our troubles, no man can see the end.’
This statement is quite an editorial. It was published in Harper’s Magazine.
Do you know when? 1847!
