“The market rewards patience, diversification and low fees.” - Matthew Roling, professor
Listen to the conversation about stocks and how and why they fluctuate.
Matthew Roling is the Interim Chair for the Department of Accounting at Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business. Roling tells Henderson that “the market rewards patience, diversification and low fees.” He says the large drop last week in stocks was undeniably a reflection of the interconnection between the US and Chinese economies, adding that the consensus cause of the dip by economists was the Coronavirus outbreak in China. “It was a realization by the market that what’s going on with this virus might seriously wreak havoc on our economy.”
