The Big Thing Investors Have Trouble Accepting

Be sure to subscribe to our channel so you never miss an update

Morgan Housel has been enlightening me for a decade now. His stuff is just so universal and smart. We had him come by and talk about some of the biggest mistakes and misconceptions that plague investors year after year – and what can be done about them.

Morgan talks with Michael Batnick and Barry Ritholtz about:

* how there is no such thing as an optimized portfolio

* why recent trends are more instructive about the near term future, but long term trends are the ally of most investors

* the fact that investing is one of the only endeavors in which the application of more effort doesn’t equate to better results

* the hindsight bias that all of us fall victim to

* the reality behind some of the most famous investor track records

* the inconsistency you are required to put up with in the pursuit of long term outperformance
