'Foolish' Bottom Line
Stock market prices can fluctuate irrationally and often wildly. That means to say that prices can keep rising even when the underlying businesses have poor fundamentals. If that’s the case, then don’t be surprised when the bottom falls out one day.
On the other hand, prices can collapse despite strong fundamentals. That’s when investors need to exercise discipline and not give into fear. A purchase during times of irrational distress can even set the stage for spectacular returns in the future.
Ultimately, investors have to recognise that business fundamentals are the main drivers of long-term shareholder returns. In the long run, it’s the businesses that matters.
