Cambridge Corner: Rely on Reason
Making decisions in haste or based on emotion can result in investment moves you may later regret. Review your original reasons for buying an investment and compare performance with an appropriate benchmark index before you sever ties. If returns have been poor over several years, consider replacing the investment with a similar one that’s a better performer.
