Investing When Stock Market Returns Are Flat
Robert R. Johnson
Returns in the stock market have been relatively flat for the past year, but investors often become alarmed at the day-to-day volatility, which result in large spikes or losses in the S&P 500 or Dow Jones indexes.
Instead of believing that they need to sell or buy certain stocks to generate better returns, investors should “stay the course” and remain in the market by continuing to dollar cost average into their existing mutual funds or ETFs, said Robert Johnson, president of The American College of Financial Services in Bryn Mawr, Pa.
