Stock Pros Who Survived the Depression


Recommended Posts

While he understands investors' hesitation today, Schloss doesn't think our current situation compares with the Depression. Back then, he says, the economy was dependent on only a handful of businesses, like banks, railroads, utilities and oil companies. Today economic growth comes from a much broader array of industries, many of them fueled by the huge gains in technological development we've seen over the past eight decades — including communications, biotechnology and the Internet. Sure, General Electric is still a powerhouse, but so are Google and Amgen. That means a much wider array of job possibilities — and more engines of growth for our economy. If investors today "were a little less emotional, they would see that this could be a good opportunity, so long as they move carefully and keep an eye on balance sheets," he says.


I couldn't agree more with Schloss' comments.  Cheers!
