The AAII Phoenix Chapter presents...

History as an Investment Tool

    Discussed by:

    Ken Winans

Why did the majority of modern investors, the most knowledgeable and technologically advanced in history, mishandle the stock bubble of the 1990s, the nothing-down real estate frenzy of the 2000s and the financial hurricane of 2008? The answer points to a lack of knowledge about financial history. Leading financial historian Kenneth G. Winans will give an overview on the performance of common stocks, preferred stocks, real estate, corporate bonds and collectibles since 1850 and examine the best bull and worst bear markets of this time. He will explore how investing and politics have historically related to each other, and how investments have weathered past crises, both natural and man-made. Ken Winans will show how people’s emotions (greed and fear about money and investing) haven’t changed much over time, and how our actions typically resemble those of previous generations. His provocative conclusion: If you want to break the vicious “buy high, sell low” cycle that plagues most investors, be more of a historian and less of a financial analyst!
