🔒 Boardroom Talk – Reminder it’s time in the market, not timing the market that matters

Alec Hogg’s newsletter for Premium members. Wednesday, 29th November 2023

I spent a lovely virtual hour with tribe members yesterday in our monthly webinar, updating the two share investment portfolios. It was a landmark for both: BizNews Webtrader is now nine years old – and the BizNews Shyft portfolio, launched at the top of the market two years ago, has broken into profit.


There’s a lot of detail in the recording of the webinar – half the hour my presentation; the other answering questions – which is accessable by clicking here. The smartest comment came from my colleague Stuart Lowman who noted that the BN Shyft portfolio proves its not “timing” the market that counts, but “time in” the market.

Also freshly produced for you this morning is RW Johnson’s unique clarity on the Israel/Hamas situation, where he draws on the template provided by the great French general Charles de Gaulle. I say that without reservation – ChatGPT says De Gaulle is one of the four greatest Frenchmen alongside Charlemagne, Louis XIV, and Napoleon.
