It’s right around this time of the MLB season that some fantasy owners make some serious mistakes. Some truly competent, good players get dropped after just 2-3 weeks of under-performance. That amount of time is not nearly enough time to judge how a player’s season is going to go. The same could be said about investing. Weeks, months, or even quarters are a very short amount of time to judge an investment. Now, if you’re a day trader, it’s a different story. However, for people truly investing for the long-term, it would serve you better to give your investments a longer leash, or re-evaluate how you choose your long-term investments.
