Stay the course. Don’t let these distractions get in the way of an intelligent investment program. There is a long trail between today and the retirement of most people. The whole idea of investing is to build a sum for your retirement and there’s no better way to do that than stocks. They will be good in the long run, but not as good as in the past because dividend yields are so low.
