Good article in the SMH Herald today, that reminds us........wait for it........SHOCK.... Shares do go down too!! Shares go down, too, remember - Business - Business - smh.com.au The article also touches on 'exuberance' and how this might affect our returns in the next 12-months. (Personally I find the whole exuberance part of investing really interesting). Commsec's analysis suggests (no promises) that the 12-month outlook for the market is about +16.5% from a fair value starting point. With their 'Exuberance Meter' currently reading -5.3%, they suggest, it is possible (no promises) that we could see another almost 22% year. What am I sure of? Even if the market is currently showing better value, there will be less people buying for a while. The Market a cold and calculating machine? Nah.......human sentiment and emotion is alive and well in many, many Buy/Sell decisions. PS. DOW closed Down 281 points. Another interesting week coming up.
