Tim’s Top Links – 4/6/17

by | Apr 6, 2017 | News

timThe 2017 Masters tournament started this morning, and golf fans everywhere are rejoicing!  However, some people making bets on the tournament got thrown a last second curveball yesterday.  One of the favorites to win the green jacket was Dustin Johnson, and as many of you know now DJ fell down some steps yesterday and injured his back.  Talk about bad timing.  While he had a great chance to win, many people were forced to adapt to the injury news, and pick a better, healthier option.  It kind of reminds me of investing.  If one of your investments got seriously “injured”, odds are you’d look to replace it with something stronger.  Like I’ve said before: it’s okay to be wrong, it’s not okay to STAY wrong.
