Know Your Time Frame

>

 

My Sunday Washington Post column is out. This morning, we look at A crucial investing question: Do you know your time frame?

Quick excerpt from the column:

“Good investors must learn to contextualize the daily background noise. That is my phrase for the never-ending proliferation of economic news releases, media broadcasts, technical updates, and cable TV shows that are mostly meaningless time fillers. Television and radio have 24 hours a day to fill — does anyone believe that all of that content is meaningful? The Internet has an infinite number of pages to fill — guess how many are truly valuable?”

I like the way the Post integrated a graphic in the dead tree version of the paper.
