Whether you’re a client, friend, fellow advisor, or future client, if you’ve followed our thinking for more than a few months, you already know that we have a timeless investment philosophy: own global capitalism in a highly diversified (thousands of stocks), low-cost, tax-efficient manner rather than trying to select individual stocks or managers. Hill and our clients are investors. Jim Cramer and stock pickers are gamblers. A corollary is: remain invested all the time…good times and bad; don’t try to time the market. This brief and hilarious John Oliver video highlights the poster child of stock picking, CNBC’s Jim Cramer, and some of his “amazing” stock picks along with their results.

It’s no secret we love Morgan Housel. We reference him time and time again because everything he says is spot on. If you don’t know, he has a new podcast and we’re enjoying hearing Morgan every bit as much as we love reading him. In the episode “The Power of Staying Put,” Morgan says, “There are so many times in life where what you do is less important than how long you’ve been doing it for.” It sounds a lot like taking the long view.
We all know the Golden Rule. Morgan Housel may have just created the Platinum Rule. And now may be the right time to adopt it. Click here to read about an essential skill leading to non-lucky success over time. Hint: being nice goes a long way.
