In the financial journalism, sound advice is very rare, and this contributes to the bad investments. There is a lot of financial pressure on the media, which contribute to the publishing of some articles that may contain information that misleads the investors. An article published in Globe and Mail that featured a portfolio manager and partner at Avenue Investment Management, Paul Harris gave justifications for his stock picks, and any investor would be compelled to purchase them. Stock picks have a low record of accomplishment in the market presently, and investors should avoid using it as an investment strategy. What the experts will not tell you is their predictive records of the markets, and the media should give the detailed information that the investors need.
