Stock School Video 4: Valuable vs. Useless information

Lars Tvede gives you tips in the Euroinvestor Stock School to improve your investor skills. Part four is about the importance of distinguish between valuable and useless information. Lars Tvede demonstrates the classic mistakes done by investors in regards to information quality.

"We do not always clearly distinguish between valuable and useless information"

  • We receive great amount of information but do not seek the perspective. For example, we look at stock prices, but fail to look at graphs, economic fundamentals, or long-term economic figures. We often believe that news always has to be accessed in real time so we can respond quickly to them even though market reactions are immediately.
  • We are especially attracted by dramatic stories like doomsday prophecies, when markets have already fallen dramatically and vice versa
  • We use economic analysis to predict short term price movements and technical analysis for the long term perspective.
  • We base our decisions on patent systems without theoretical foundation.
