So I was rather surprised when I was told not twice but thrice about people being apprehensive about air travel.
I was surprised to hear that I might not get 20% of cohort to go overseas for immersion programme when in previous years, the demand is overwhelming. The reason: air accidents
My wife told me her colleague ask the P to be excused from overseas trip because she is worried about air accident?! Hmm... What makes she think the P will cancel the whole trip just to consider the recent spat of accidents
Then I overhead my MiL saying about not air travelling. I couldn't help
Myself and smile, and say that I will be going to NAnjing with pupils soon.
To think further, we also like to link news1 with 2 and make conclusion I out investing decisions, isn't it? When we should be looking at the valuation and the longer term viability of the business. Read Grexit, read plunging oil, and we might think a bear is coming, but the truth is, we will never know if it's a bull climbing a wall of worry or the frog is being cooked until we exited. If we exited with nice profits, we are buying high selling higher and the bull had climbed the wall of worry. If we wait till the cow comes home and the water is boiled and lament not exiting earlier, then we are the frog.
2 things count: your robust research and analysis of the long term attractiveness of the business and valuation. Valuation determine buy sell action
