Just a break-in here on a slow market day to make sure you read two really killer posts from my firm’s director of research, Michael Batnick.
Surprised by the lack of reaction to the recent tragedies in Baton Rouge and Dallas (not to mention the Turkish coup attempt)? You shouldn’t be.

It only took two months for the Dow Jones to get back to where it was on September 10th, 2001 after the worst attack on America since Pearl Harbor. Some other incredible recoveries after tragedies listed here:

Another post, in which Michael explains how he found his investing mentors from a stack of old classic books, is also a must-read. The condensed wisdom of Bernstein, Buffett, Smith, Schwed, Zweig and others here:
