The Little Book of Investing Do’s and Don’ts offers quick, easy-to-follow, and entertaining advice for anyone looking to get back on the right investment track.

Do’s & Don’ts to Protect Your Financial Life

• DON’T assume that just because you are capable of managing your finances by yourself you will be better off in the long run if you do.

• DO trade as infrequently as possible.

• DON’T give any weight to market forecasts. All opinion pro and con is already built into the price of equities today.

• DO buy and hold; don’t buy and sell.

• DON’T assume that because you own a bunch of different-sounding mutual funds your investments are diversified.

• DO diversify globally with your stock and bond holdings.

• DON’T buy into a red-hot real estate market.

• DO park assets where they will suffer the least at the hands of the taxman.

• DON’T take Social Security as soon as you are eligible. It often pays to delay.

• DO postpone retirement as long as possible. The safest time to retire is never.
