MTI126: Are Your Emotions Screwing Up Your Investing Plan? with T. Michelle Jones

The DOW recently broke the 20,000 mark. How does that make you feel?

T. Michelle Jones from Bryn Mawr Trust joins us for a discussion about how emotions get in the way of our investing plans and how to stay grounded when things get exciting in the market.

Then our roundtable chats about buying high, keeping our winners, and why we pay so much attention to the movement of the DOW when it’s only 30 companies.

About our sponsor, BUZZ Index

Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips….even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered….and of you ARE online….you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments and blogs are analyzed each month! Here’s how it works:. First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.

Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
