Buying High or Buying Low?

March 9, 2023

By now many of you may be receiving your credit card statements showing how much you paid for flowers or candy for Valentine’s Day. An interesting lesson about buying high and investing in the article below.

https://www.dimensional.com/us-en/insights/dont-buy-high-valentines-roses-and-investing-lessons?_cldee=fJGBISIroJSD1Jn2q4Q3wpnKmLMbRbSZJP6Ghwm6M7gDT36xbpABSCOw0Y_uN8Ni&recipientid=contact-f565a0f8ab7ae61180ddc4346bac0934-193f657fe08c4426967bdb2cee0422d3&esid=9d5206cc-b0b6-ed11-83fe-000d3a343b81

The article points out that many people tend to purchase roses during Valentine’s Day, causing a surge in demand, and thus an increase in price. However, this increase in price is often not due to an increase in the actual value of the roses but rather due to market forces, such as supply and demand. Therefore, buying roses during Valentine’s Day, when prices are high, may not be the most cost-effective approach.

Similarly, when investing, it’s essential to be mindful of market forces. Investors need to understand that a stock’s price may not necessarily reflect its true value but rather the forces of supply and demand at that moment. Thus, it’s important to avoid buying stocks when their prices are high because of market forces. Instead, investors should focus on finding stocks with sound fundamentals and undervalued prices.

Moreover, the article highlights another crucial investing lesson from Valentine’s Day gift-giving practices. Many people tend to wait until the last minute to buy Valentine’s Day gifts, which often results in higher prices due to increased demand. In investing, this can be equated to chasing trends or buying popular stocks, which often leads to overvalued prices.

Therefore, to be a successful investor, one needs to avoid chasing trends and instead focus on doing proper research and analysis to find stocks with long-term potential. In conclusion, the Valentine’s Day rose-buying practice offers valuable lessons for investors. By being mindful of market forces and avoiding chasing trends, investors can make wise decisions and achieve long-term success in their investment journeys.
