S&P 500 falls as surge in Covid-19 cases outweighs positive vaccine news

The stock market goes up or down, and you can’t adjust your portfolio based on the whims of the market, so you have to have a strategy in a position and stay true to that strategy and not pay attention to noise that could surround any particular investment. – John Paulson Both the S&P 500 […]

Dow Jones Industrial Average soars on positive Covid-19 vaccine news

If you can follow only one bit of data, follow the earnings (assuming the company in question has earnings).

S&P 500 closes slightly higher despite surge in Covid-19 cases

When things are going well and prices are high, investors rush to buy, forgetting all prudence. Then, when there’s chaos all around and assets are on the bargain counter, they lose all willingness to bear risk and rush to sell. And it will ever be so. – Howard Marks The stock market was able to […]

Stocks surge on stimulus bill hopes, treatments for virus

The investor who permits himself to be stampeded or unduly worried by unjustified market declines in his holdings is perversely transforming his basic advantage into a basic disadvantage. – Benjamin Graham The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose for the second consecutive week as investors remained hopeful that another economic relief bill would be passed and […]

S&P 500 snaps four-week losing streak on positive economic data

Rely on the ordinary virtues that intelligent, balanced human beings have relied on for centuries: common sense, thrift, realistic expectations, patience and perseverance. – John Bogle The S&P 500 Index snapped its four-week losing streak last week and the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite Index also advanced despite a continued stalemate in […]

S&P 500 declines for 4th straight week as uncertainties mount

It’s been an ideal period for investors: A climate of fear is their best friend. Those who invest only when commentators are upbeat end up paying a heavy price for meaningless reassurance. – Warren Buffett The stock market ended the week on a high note with a strong rally on Friday but it wasn’t enough […]

Stocks close modestly lower as uncertainty over economic recovery increases

When navigating the financial markets, the long-term investor must keep in mind the four basic dimensions of long-term returns – reward, risk, cost and time – and must apply them to every asset class.
