Only Thing to Fear is Fear

Over 95 years, in the midst of the Great Depression, Franklin Delano Roosevelt rallied the country and profoundly stated: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
As ones that follow the business news on a daily basis, we continue to be baffled and just plain amused by some of the headlines we see and hear regarding the Stock Market’s volatility. We know that fear sells, and this is unfortunate. It is disappointing that investors are continually being bombarded with negativity about what is happening around the world as well as investing in the Stock Market.
The media often generates a “Fear Factor” for investors leading them to question and time the market, speculating on if and when the next, big Stock Market correction or crash will occur. Investors are afraid because often they are subjected to an “asset allocation” strategy which is opaque at best and does not offer Flexibility & Transparency. How do we know that we are not even close to the end of this secular bull market? The answer to this question is, because we are not even close to euphoria in the markets.
However, at Nepsis we strive to remove the investors’ fears by providing Clarity in their portfolios. How is this accomplished? The answer is simple. Invest like a business owner. If you own equities, you are a part owner of a business and like a business owner, investors benefit by knowing what they own and why they own it. While others are fretting, Nepsis focuses on opportunities that present themselves during market sell-offs appropriately allocating stocks and bonds based on investors’ financial needs. This allows investors to take advantage of opportunities just like a business owner would by taking advantage of volatility. This strategy provides Flexibility & Transparency that allows investors to “Stick to the Knitting” while successfully investing in businesses over time.
Remember, it is important to understand that as an investor, you do not invest in the “stock market”. The stock market is nothing more than the place to go for business owners to buy and sell businesses!
Therefore, Invest with Clarity®!!! “The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear itself”
