The International Writers Magazine: Why now is a good time
to buy shares
to Gain from Negatively Slanted News
Michael Levy - Professional
could not have escaped your notice how the stock market has
been on a roller coaster ride the past few weeks. The indices
are now trading at yearly lows for no real reason apart from sensationalistic
panic that has no truthful foundation.
Anyone looking for
common sense will not find much in the stock market gyrations. In today's
media world, unfounded fears and negatively slanted opinions are fed
to the public by naive TV commentators and over-reactive newspaper editors.
When one set of government statistics are released, the doom and gloom
merchants jump on the bandwagon to spout their well chosen words and
hay presto ... The markets go down.
A typical comment will be "The next six months company results
will be poor because the latest figures indicate the economy is getting
How can they possibly know what the company results will be in six months
A few days later another bunch of controlling experts will come on TV
and declare; "The economy is too strong and interest rates will
have to rise steeply ... so the next six months company results will
be weak ... Everyone should sell their shares and get out of the markets
ASAP." How can they conceivably discern what events will be established
in six months time?
What happened to honest reporting ... that just disclosed the facts?
The only people who stand to strike short term gain, in the stock markets
uncalled for downturn, are the ones with billions of dollars in hedge
fund short positions ... It is they who raise their cups of plenty and
sing... Three cheers for negatively slanted financial news ... reported
by mislead comment-taters. But long-term, very few people earn
money by shorting stocks.
People with common sense will always make intelligent interpretations
and in the long run come out on top ... The smart investor buys cheaply,
the companies that negatively slanted reports may try and distort. They
know a company with strong, honest balance sheets, mindful management,
sound products and serving the public with what they desire, will make
The astute investors will buy when others are selling out of fear ...
In the long run, that's how millionaires are made. Let the Wall Street
fiddlers play the tunes for a while and maybe the media fools will dance
in rhythmic ignorance... But in the long run, the wise investor will
reap the rewards.
They understand the simple rule ... Sell when prices are high and buy
when they come down.
Leisurely drip investing brings rich return. Buying a few shares,
each time a well researched companies price falters, will bring super
returns to the wise investor ... Cream will always rise to the surface.
