Ask a Fool: How Would Taxing the Top 2% Affect Investors?

In the following video, Motley Fool financial analyst Matt Koppenheffer answers the question, "Assuming the fiscal cliff does not occur, but the taxing the wealthiest 2% does, how would that affect typical investors?"

One example Matt uses to highlight his investing style in the video is Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo's dedication to solid, conservative banking helped it vastly outperform its peers during the financial meltdown. Today, Wells is the same great bank as ever, but with its stock trading at a premium to the rest of the industry, is there still room to buy, or is it time to cash in your gains? To help figure out whether Wells Fargo is a buy today, I invite you to download our premium research report from one of The Motley Fool's top banking analysts.

    Matt Koppenheffer fails to explain what it is that macro-economists get so wrong. I suspect that they get wrong predictions on how the stock of an individual company will perform in the short term. The reason being that this has little to do macroeconomics most of the time and is mostly affected by micro-economic issues.

    If you are silly enough to take the advice of an expert who is willing to dole out free advice on areas outside his/her expertise, then you get what you pay for.

    Are Foolish readers silly, too?
