Risk warnings and important information
None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.
All statements concerning the tax treatment of products and their benefits are based on our understanding of current tax law and HM Revenue and Customs’ practice. Levels and bases of tax relief are subject to change.

Financial News should It Influence Your Investments

Should You Let Financial News Influence Your Investments?

Financial news is readily available these days. Newspapers and magazines, TV channels, radio stations and the Internet all feature them daily. But can they really be taken as reference points for investors?

What’s Available

Most financial news draws on company press releases, so they are more or less the same, regardless of the medium through which they are presented. They are usually about one of the following: joint ventures between companies, company takeovers, job creation or job loss, the winning of business contracts by companies.

The widely available business news comes almost exclusively from major companies. Small companies get relatively little attention in mainstream media, unless they make a major breakthrough in their fields, which doesn’t occur often. So, for news on small companies you usually have to grab niche business magazines.

Good News, Bad News

All financial news can be classified as good news or bad news. For example, good news can be an announcement that a telecommunications company is extending its coverage to new countries. Bad news comes in many varieties, including the announcement that a company is cutting jobs.

Financial news needs to be judged in the nation-wide or world-wide economic context. That’s because good news is not always as good as it first seems; similarly, bad news may turn out to be not that bad.

An example: a car manufacturer reports that its sales have fallen by 5% during the last month compared to the month before. At first glance that’s bad financial news. Yet if you investigate the financial market, you may learn that almost all other car manufacturers in the region have reported greater drops in sales (between 7% and 14%) during the same period. So the initially bad news was not really that bad, since the company in question has done better than its competitors.

In conclusion, keeping an eye on the financial news is important if you’re an investor, but you should never judge news without regarding the regional or global economic situation. Don’t change your investment plans solely because of financial news: Talk to the experts at Compare The Financial Markets.
