Share Market Adages – Shortcut to Success or Fools Gold? Part I

Today Raj Padarath gives his personal take on the old Share Market Adage ‘Sell in May and go away’.

As we move through life we are exposed to various quotes and sayings of collected wisdom. Often, we accept these as true because they are stated as fact by people who ought to know what they are talking about. So as infants we accept that red cordial makes us hyperactive, because our parents say so. When we reach school age we learn from our teachers that greed, in fact, is not good, and not sharing the good toys will make us unpopular with the other children.

I don’t know about you, but I hate to make mistakes – especially when it comes to my money. My wife and I work hard to bring in the income we do and when I see that a mistake has been made I see it as money we threw out the window with no opportunity to get it back. What I do like about making mistakes though is the learning opportunity that they provide so we can avoid future mishaps. I love to learn and these are perfect opportunities to see how I can improve my approach. One area that I focus very heavily on in relation to learning opportunities is investing in the stock market. I’ve had the opportunity to see people make terrible mistakes with their portfolios and either continue down that path, or use them as a way to grow. What this has allowed me to see is that we’re all human (surprise, surprise) but that it’s those who turn their investing mistakes on their heads who end up ahead of the rest.

Rather, the goal is to minimize the number of these mistakes that you make overall. Keeping this universal truth in perspective will help you get back on track when you stumble, and it will also help you learn an important lesson for the future.
