Even the world of the FTSE 100 is never boring in the investment world

By Chris Bailey | Friday 9 June 2023

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

The investment world remains…interesting. My basic view of the 2020s (and beyond) is that it is alright, but that the average investor, irrespective of age or size of pension fund, needs to fundamentally make sure they don’t think it is going to be the second coming of the 2010s. In short, pick your stocks carefully, you might beat inflation just about with the average bond, don’t have loads of cash hanging around under the sofa and a bit of gold exposure makes a lot of sense. And if you are not comfortable admitting that sometimes you bog it up as an investor…then outsource the management (so they can bog it up slightly less) and live a happier life. Meanwhile, I remain intrigued by the investment world and this morning I see some interesting comments from Croda International (CRDA) of the FTSE 100.
