Bears and Bulls create great opportunities for those of us with opposable thumbs.

So many TMF “bears” and “bulls” speculate on the short term direction of the market.  This style of investing is like the siren call to an investor’s ego.  The problem with it is two fold: it turns good investors into short term gamblers, and even with good evidence that the market is incorrect it is impossible to determine the time horizon for the correction (the .com bubble for example). 

I suggest that investors should focus less on the short term moves of the market and more on finding undervalued stocks.  As the Bears and Bulls pull the market up and down some stocks become grossly over and under valued.  Deliberately buying undervalued stocks and selling them when they reach fair value insulates you from these short term swings.  These dramatic swings just create new opportunities for profits. 

So let the bears and bulls fight it out, just be there (with your opposable thumbs) to grab the good picks they cast aside.
