Episode Description

We will speak with legendary investor Ken Fisher about his latest book DEBUNKERY: Learn It, Do It, and Profit From it—Seeing Through Wall Street’s Money-Killing Myths, as he challenges and refutes common, widely held investing myths and misperceptions; maxims that rob investors and kill profits. He believes that a huge part of success is avoiding common errors most investors make repeatedly. He says “Folks have a romantic notion about ‘beating the market’,” says Ken Fisher. “A lofty goal—and possible, though difficult—but most investors not only don’t beat the market, they don’t match the market or come even close.” DEBUNKERY disproves: one big bear market and you’re done, make sure it’s a bull marketing before diving in, a good con artist is hard to spot, sell in May, low P/Es mean low risk, high unemployment is a stock market killer, and stocks love lower taxes, along with some others.
