Fear of Missing Out (FOMO)
From “the next google” stocks, to penny stocks, dot.com stocks, meme stocks, or even crypto, there’s typically both social pressure applied to investors to not miss out on the next big thing, but also their own internal feelings of not wanting to “miss” out. This “Fear of Missing Out” or FOMO as it’s referred to, typically builds as a bull market is extended and certain investments possibly grow faster than their underlying value would dictate. In this episode, Josh and Jay discuss both fear of missing out, and discuss the difference between “gambling” versus utilizing a diversified, purposely constructed diversified portfolio. The hosts even get to relieve a little bit of the dot.com bubble, as both had just graduated college as that era was heating up. Been burned by the market recently? Tune it to hear about possible different approaches to your investing strategy.
