It is with great pleasureto look out the window andwatch it rain while I tr tofind something of interestto write about this week.Having spent sometimein the great outdoors thisweekend it is quite obviousthat the crops need rain verbadl. The corn and beansthat have had some rain arelooking ver good and if therains continue the crops lookto be ver good. Lets hopethe rains will sta aroundfor a while.Remember school is outso be on the lookout for allthe kids out on bikes anddon’t be texting while ouare driving. And parents doour son or daughter a bigfavor and have some formof lights put on our kid’sbikes, both front and rear,especiall if the are outdelivering newspapers earlin the morning.The cost can’t be vermuch compared to a visitto the emergenc room,let alone the injur to ourchild. Give it some seriousthought.Congratulations to all thenew graduates out there andlets hope the can find the jobs the are looking for. Itwill not be an eas task thatmuch is for sure. Until nextweek lets hope we can enjothis rain for a few more dasand ou gus out there, whnot take the little lad outfor supper tonight.That’s m Opinion.....What’s yours??

John M. Yoder, Financial Advisor 
If you’re like most people, you go through many complex thoughts and emotions when choosing
investments. In fact, a eld of study called “behavioral nance” is devoted to understanding why people maketheir investment decisions. As part of their work, behavioral nance researchers examine “biases” that affectpeople’s investment selections. And as an individual investor, you, too, can benet from understanding thesebiases — so that you can avoid them.Here are some of the key biases identied by behavioral nance experts:* Overcondence — Overcondence leads investors to believe they know the “right times” to buy andsell investments. But if you’re constantly buying and selling in the belief that you are correctly “timing” themarket, you maybe wrong many times, and you may incur more investment fees, expenses and taxes than if you simply bought quality investments and held them for the long term.* Representativeness — If you make decisions based on preconceived ideas or stereotypes, youmay be suffering from a bias called “representativeness.” For example, if you see that investments from a
particular sector, such as energy, have performed particularly well in one year, you might think these typesof vehicles will do just as well the next year, so you load up on them. Yet every sector will go through upsand downs, so one year’s performance cannot necessarily predict the next year’s performance. Instead of 
chasing “hot” investments, try to build a balanced portfolio that reects your individual goals, risk tolerance
and time horizon.
* Anchoring — Similar to representativeness, an anchoring bias occurs when investors place too much
emphasis on past performance. If you own shares of XYZ stock, for instance, and the stock price hit $60 per 
share, you might assume XYZ will always sell for at least $60 a share. But if XYZ drops to $30 per share —perhaps as a result of a broad-based market decline — you might think it’s now “undervalued,” leading youto “snap up” even more shares. However, XYX shares could also fall due to a change in its fundamentals,such as a shake-up in the company’s management or a decline in the competitiveness of its products. As aninformed investor, you need to work with your nancial advisor to determine the causes of an investment’s
decline and any actions you may need to take in response.
* Conrmation — If you are subject to conrmation bias, you may look for information that supports your reasons for choosing a particular investment. This type of bias can lead to faulty decision making, becauseyou’ll end up with one-sided information. In other words, you may latch onto all the positive reasons for investing in something — such as a “hot stock” — but you may overlook the “red ags” that would causeyou to think twice if you were being totally objective. To ght back against conrmation bias, take your timebefore making any investment decision — a quality investment will almost always be just as good a choice
tomorrow as it is today.
