It’s been just over a year since Britain decided to leave the European Union and David made five Brexit-inspired stock picks. While those were meant as long-term picks (3 years at least), it’s fun to check on their progress. The FTSE 100 (or Footsie) is up since then. How we doin’?

Are you concerned by the “market drop” we experienced over the last few days? If you’re a Rule Breaking Investor, chances are it hit you pretty hard, and that can be painful.

As David has said before, and will say again, “Stocks always go down faster than they go up, but they always go up more than they go down.”

When Warren Buffet was asked on CNBC why he still isn’t buying Amazon – a company he greatly admires – he quipped, “Stupidity.” But why should the greatest investor of our time regret sitting out on a single company that sits outside the framework of his self-ascribed circle of competence? Buffett doesn’t need to be a Rule Breaker. That’s for you and me, fellow Fools!

Spring is here! The air is warming, cherry trees have peaked, and showers are bringing flowers. But if you Google “April” today, your first page of results will be all about April the Giraffe and her brand new, web-cam-friendly calf. David doesn’t mention any of this specifically in today’s show, but he does pick 5 stocks that he thinks will go giraffishly up. We’ll check back in 3 years to see how these stocks have performed, and to see if anyone remembers our long-necked YouTube sensation.

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (and a silver sixpence in her shoe)” traditionally refers to what a bride should wear on her wedding day for good luck.

Spoiler alert: At the end, David will be talking about his beloved – and blue – alma mater.

Often the best way to improve our investing is to improve our thinking. And to improve our thinking, it’s often helpful to reach outside of the disciplines of investing and business. Today we delve into the teachings of education reformer, Deborah Meier, and the “5 Habits of Mind” that she believes should be taught to all 21st Century students. Perhaps these habits should be taught to 21st Century investors as well!
