Last night we did an extended screencast on the topic of investor myopia and the value of reading widely on StockTwits TV.  Building on an earlier screencast we spent some time talking about the many hats a great investor wears inspired by Barry Ritholtz’s article on that topic and added a few to boot.  We noted the importance of reading widely and threw out a few book recommendations.  Lastly we noted the implications of growing financial market myopia on individual investors willing to take a long term view.  You can view the video in its entirety below:
