Bucks: Riding Out Volatile Times

In his Wealth Matters column this week, Paul Sullivan checks in with some investment professionals on their advice to clients in this year of political and economic turmoil. They all agreed that investors should take the long view and not be swayed by individual events.

But how do you define the long view? The professionals say they continue to be confident about the stock market in the United States, mainly because of strong corporate earnings. One adviser said he was investing in multinational companies that derive their revenue from around the world. Another recommended that investors buy dollars and long-dated United States Treasury bonds as protection against troubles in the euro zone.
