 April 22 is Earth Day. Started in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day is designed to createawareness of the Earth’s environment and to encourage conservation efforts. If you and your familyparticipate in Earth Day events, such as helping clean up a local park or taking materials to a recyclingcenter, you know the benefits of doing your part to improve your surroundings. But are you doingeverything you can to upgrade your environment for investing? Actually, as an investor, you can learn a lot from the lessons of Earth Day. Here are just a fewideas:* Diversify. If you’re familiar with Earth Day, you know that it involves multiple activities, includingeducational programs and do-it-now action steps. This variety is necessary because protecting our environment is a complex challenge. Meeting your short- and long-term investment goals can bechallenging, too, but you’ll have a better chance of success by diversifying your investment dollarsacross a range of vehicles, such as stocks, bonds, government securities and certificates of deposit(CDs). Diversification can help reduce the impact of volatility on your portfolio — and high volatility canbe an obstacle for some people trying to follow an investment strategy. (Keep in mind, though, thatdiversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss.)* Seek growth opportunities. Some people plant trees on Earth Day, hoping to watch them growover the years. As an investor, you, too, need to plant “seeds” today in the hopes of growth in the future.That means, among other things, that when you purchase growth-oriented investments for the longterm, you need to try to stick with them and not “uproot” them after short-term declines in price.* Develop good habits. If you attend an Earth Day program, you will learn about many eco-friendlyhabits you can develop, from using energy-efficient light bulbs to recycling old computers and other electronic devices. To invest successfully, it’s important to develop good habits, such as staying investedin all types of markets, seeking tax-advantaged investments and reviewing your portfolio regularly tomake sure it’s still appropriate for your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term objectives.* Avoid “toxins.” At some Earth Day events, you can learn about “green” substitutes for toxicchemicals in common household cleaners. When you invest, you may also want to avoid “toxins” — or at least “toxic” behaviors, such as chasing after “hot” stocks that are inappropriate for your needs or trading so frequently that you run up big fees, commissions and taxes.* Think long term. Above all else, Earth Day is a reminder to us that we all want to leave ahealthy planet to future generations — which means we need to make moves that are beneficial for theenvironment over the long term. When you invest, you also need to focus on the future. That meansfollowing a long-term investment strategy and not getting sidetracked by short-term events, such aspolitical crises and economic downturns.
