HSBC bank pays a reliable dividend

Individual calendar years are something of an arbitrary time period to track, so I won’t devote any space to rehashing 2018. Still, for stock pickers who have generally seen the value of their investments rise each year for nearly a decade, it can take the wind out of your sails to experience such losses, even if they remain on paper.

It’s unpleasant and perhaps a little humbling, yet after a long bull market, resetting investor expectations can be a healthy thing. The same can be said for giving serious thought to topics such as rebalancing, overall asset allocation, capacity for market risk, and other factors that can affect your long-term investment performance.
