To see why things will get worse before they get better, it’s important to understand the cost a lengthy shutdown imposes on the economy. A recent JPM study finds that half of all small businesses – companies employing fewer than 500 people – have cash reserves of 27 days at most. Three-quarters can hold out for up to 2 months. Small businesses employ about 48% of the entire country’s workforce: 60 million workers. It takes a moment to take this all in.
Faced with the possibility of the “Greater Depression,” investors have to think carefully about how to manage their portfolios through it.
There’s an old expression that, even though history doesn’t repeat itself, it often rhymes.
Learning from past recessions, here are three things to avoid.
While investors are quite good at picking winners, they’re much less skilled at timing their sales. An interesting paper published early last year shows that investors underperform even entirely random selling by a solid margin. In large part this is because sales often happen in times of panic, much like now.
It can be nerve wracking and confusing, but keeping these three things in mind can help you weather the storm and come out the other side unharmed.
