Among the things that make investing such a challenge is that the people who are doing it are … well, people. We’re emotional. Inconsistent. Prone to second-guessing ourselves. And that’s when things are going well. But there are ways to engineer your investment strategy to help you avoid the drags that such behaviors can lead to.

For an example of that, consider this segment from this Rule Breaker Investing podcast, in which Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner describes the restrictions he and his brother Tom put on themselves when it came to managing the Stock Advisor portfolio. He, and the listener whose question kicked off the commentary, describe those limits and rules as “handicaps,” but in reality, they are anything but.

It’s mailbag time! In this week’s episode of Rule Breaker Investing, Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner rings in 2019 with five letters from listeners, along with five poems they inspired him to share. In this kind of bear market, is it OK to add to your losers? Or is that still shooting yourself in the investing foot? When is a good time to sell a position? Have you seen the coolest thing ever, i.e. the marketcapgameshow.com website that listener Clay McKinney set up? Any advice for a parent planning their inheritance giveaway? Tune in to hear more, along with some poems from listeners, from David himself, and some of the poetry greats. Happy new year, and remember to keep investing!
