Why Market Timing is a Bad Idea

Seeing the stock market during a bear market can be challenging at best.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Aug. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- It's very tempting to take money out of the market. Investors may feel helpless when they see investments shrink in value day after day. However, a new article by Matt Coffina, CFA, explains why timing the market is never a good idea. Coffina dives into the essential details about long-term returns, which are typically better than short-term; how history can teach lessons from past bear markets; and what actually keeps him up at night as a portfolio manager.

This article provides an insightful overview of why patience is key to long-term investing success.

Key points of the article:
  • Coffina describes the history of stock price movements and how time is on our side.
  • He also details the inverse relationship between valuations and future returns and why rational investors should always try to look at a stock with fresh eyes.
  • Coffina reviews how difficult it is to time the market, and failing to time it can prevent investors from trying it again. He goes into detail specifically about the recent pandemic and how it affected him and investors.
