“The reality is that most investors would benefit most from low-fee index funds, but that is not really exciting advice and it will certainly not keep you tuning in day after day,” said Arturo Alvarez Demalde. “There is a caveat, of course, that every investor is different and therefore has different needs, but in most circumstances investors would be wise to investigate low-index funds rather than following the advice of someone on TV.”
Many shrewd investors would likely agree with Demalde, and Randi Glazer might be able to shed some light on the benefit on taking a pragmatic approach to investing. After all, the television pundits have a sort of carnival barker quality that should make anyone hesitant to follow their financial advice. When it comes to getting the best possible return, low-fee index funds are certainly not the most exciting, but an investor seeking excitement can turn to a number of entertainment activities that are far more thrilling than anything that can be accomplished through the stock market.
