What We’re Reading: September 8

Quote of the Day: 

“For investors, emotions can be contagious. With U.S. stocks near record highs and European bourses sizzling, now is the time to immunize yourself against the risk that a sudden selloff will infect the markets—and you—with panic. … So try to socialize—in the real world and in online social media—only with investors who are calm and methodical. After all, whatever your peers pay attention to, you will also concentrate on—so following more-sensible people will help inoculate you against panic.”

–Jason Zweig, The Intelligent Investor
