The Mid-Year Stock Valuations Process Says…

I work with First Trust and the economist there is Brian Westbury. I have been relying on his research and POV for a long time now and here are my notes from a recent discussion about the stock markets outlook.

Investing Intelligence?

Of course, intelligence doesn’t always translate into wise behavior. Studies of behavioral finance have found the human brain is more interested in survival than saving. “It turns out that, when it comes to money matters, we are wired to do it all wrong.
