Tactical Investing: Pick ETFs or Stocks?
Like most questions in finance, the answer is: It depends.
You wouldn't try to cut down a tree using a scalpel. Likewise, you wouldn't attempt to perform heart surgery using a chainsaw. While these are far-fetched examples, the point is: Different tasks call for different tools.
Along the same lines, we as investors all have different objectives, risk tolerances, and time horizons. Given our unique circumstances and differing opinions on the economy and stock market, it's very likely that an investment that fits the bill for one investor may be completely unsuitable for another.
