- Amazon's performance and customer focus continues to impress
- Being constantly tuned into the overkill of news flow is bad for investors
- Why I'd sell Unilever from my fantasy portfolio if there was a good alternative.
This week has seen a return to relative calm from the ridiculous goings on last week. Most long-term investors would have ignored them anyway and just kept concentrating on what really matters - company profits and the outlook for them in the future.
We live in a world of too much news and I am convinced that constantly being tuned into it - especially on the internet and places like Twitter - is not good for us. I have pretty much given up watching TV news and tend to catch up with what’s going on by listening to the radio news at night. I feel much better for doing so.
