Show Notes

Will the next presidential election be the “most important election ever”? You might think so when following popular media outlets where every four years we have the “most important election ever!”

Recognizing how this may be true in some ways—since elections, especially presidential elections, are a big deal—host Jeff Harrell reveals that when it comes to investing…it’s just another year. Failure to recognize this could be very costly if you let your emotions get the better of you.

Jeff describes two (of many!) real-life examples of politically-motivated investment decisions and how they ended up not working out for those investors. And if you’ve ever wondered whether the stock market performs better under a Democratic or a Republican administration, tune in because the facts may surprise you.
