Don’t get swayed by chirping birds!
Before every World Cup large newspaper and internet columns are written on why a player should be in the team and why the same player should not be in the team…
There are people who will proceed to tell you how unsafe air travel is and go on and on about air accidents and try to scare you off from ever boarding an airplane! However Google this and you shall find that there is a higher chance of you dying in a car crash than in a plane crash! Despite this you still might get Goosebumps the next time you are on a plane!
Just like this there are hundreds of opinions offered on hundreds of websites about the stock markets and mutual funds and investment avenues and on which fund is the best and which fund manager is the best.
They will confound you and confuse you. You will be left ambivalent wanting and not wanting to invest in a stock at the same time!
Research will indicate it is extremely difficult for one fund manager to stay at the top for years in a row. Research and commonsense says there is no “No.1: “Fund offering quick multiplying of your money in no time. Haven’t you heard how the Saradha Scam unfolded?” Quick money doubling promises!
The one who is most consistent is the best. Don’t you support Mumbai Indians? They may not have won the title many times but they have always been up there at the Top 4.
The same is true of mutual funds and equities. Even Virat Kohli goes out on a duck but we back him for consistency. Remember! The Irfan Pathan of 2004 and the Irfan Pathan of today are vastly different! The latter plays in Ranji Trophy today.
So don’t be swayed by opinions. Do your own research. Consult an expert. It’s better to approach an expert than getting bogged down and confused by too many opinions!
Remember your hard earned money deserves the best. Give it the best!
