Expert Financial Advisor Mark Kinney Discusses Why You Shouldn’t Impulsively Sell Your Mutual Fund
Seasoned retirement and financial strategist, Mark Kinney, discusses how to know when it’s time to sell your mutual fund.
Lee, Massachusetts—July 21, 2016—Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney, CFP®, posted a new blog entry entitled, “Knowing When to Drop Out of Your Mutual Fund.” In the post, he encourages readers not to panic if their mutual funds have a bad quarter or year, but to consider how the fund has performed over a longer period of time in order to determine whether or not it’s time to drop it.
Kinney writes, “It’s important to remember that mutual funds are designed to generate long-term profits. Because mutual funds are diversified widely over a number markets and industries, and profits from the fund are divvied out proportionally to your cohort of fellow investors, you likely won’t see exorbitant returns all at once, like with some stocks. The advantage of mutual funds, historically, has been moderate returns over time in exchange for a relatively lower risk investment. That being said, you shouldn’t impulsively drop out of your mutual fund. There are a number of factors you should consider before tapping out.”
