I’ve posted Entry #26 to my weekly Beyond Buy-and-Hold column at the Out of Your Rut site. It’s Called A Truly Simple Way to Invest in Stocks.
Juicy Excerpt: A basic problem that plagues many of today’s middle-class investors is that they do not possess a good understanding of how investing works. I believe that much of the confusion we all feel is rooted in our effort to convince ourselves that it is not necessary to take price into consideration when buying stocks.
We all buy lots of goods and services. We all consider price when making purchases of every thing we buy except stocks. It would actually be more simple to consider price when buying stocks too. Then we could put the many years of experience we all enjoy buying hundreds of goods and services to work helping us understand how to buy stocks.
