Avoid These 8 Common Mistakes and You'll Live a Happier, Healthier Life!


Wall Street and the business media are filled with experts who will with only the slightest encouragement predict the future with enormous confidence. And their self-assuredness is entirely undented by the fact that darn few of them are right even half the time. But in order to be an investor, you have no choice but to attempt prognostications — many of them.  

So for this episode of Motley Fool Answers, hosts Alison Southwick and Robert Brokamp discuss the sorts of pundits and predictions you’re best off ignoring, and why, then offer up a handful of forecasts that are less than risky, but that would nonetheless be valuable for retail investors. First though, they look to the future in a different way, with a “What’s Up, Allison?” segment inspired by the wise folks at Cornell University’s Legacy Project, who asked more than 1,500 older Americans — among many other questions — what their greatest regrets were.
