Around the Bend
Past performance does not guarantee future returns. That’s the disclaimer found on every prospectus that a hot fund manager will give you before you sign on the dotted line.
It’s a good lesson that the future isn’t based on the past.
Even if you are in Portland, you’re eventually going to see the sun.
Predicting the future with precision is a risky business. Some even proclaim themselves as experts, which is absurd.
Experience and optimism often get conflated. I know it because I do it all the time.
If you want to know what’s around the bend, you’ll have to make the journey.
