The following video is from Wednesday's installment of The Motley Fool's Financials Show, in which analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson highlight for investors the most important stock news from the financial sector.
In this video, David takes a moment to give investors, CEOs, and Wall Street analysts alike a sobering reminder: Please calm down about the Federal Reserve and interest rates. In what David calls his rant about the Fed, he tells us why the greatest leadership teams in companies across America aren't making excuses and stalling projects based on interest rates and instead are continuing to do what they do. As an investor, he says, you should do the same: Pick great companies, stick with them for the long term, and put this interest-rate kerfuffle where it belongs, in the box labeled "short-term noise."
The relevant video segment can be found between 3:45 and 4:35.
