We recently had a chance to catch up again with Carl Richards (@behaviorgap) on StockTwits TV.  Carl at both his blog Behavior Gap and as a contributor to the Bucks Blog does a great job of focusing the big picture for investors.  Since year-end is nearly upon us we thought we could focus on the issues facing investors as they review their portfolios.  We especially enjoyed the discussion around the “overnight test” and how can help an investor focus on why exactly they hold what they hold. You can view the video in its entirety below:
