Scott Phillips - The Motley Fool

We need a holiday. We’ll be back soon with new episodes but in the meantime, here is one of my favourite episodes of the podcast.

Scott Phillips is The Motley Fool’s Chief Investment Officer in Australia, and runs the Motley Fool Share Advisor, Million Dollar Portfolio and Everlasting Income services. He's also all over the media, social AND traditional. And a Roosters tragic. He's joined us to talk about his 5 investing 'don'ts':

  • Don't trade too often.
  • Don't sell too quickly.
  • Don't give in to envy or greed.
  • Don't buy the hot new thing.

Don't let the 'story' overwhelm the fundamentals.
