Ken Weber, author

Adult; Self-Help & Relationships; (Market)

Even Smart people do dumb things with their money. Are you one of them? Despite its irreverent title, Dear Investor, What the Hell Are You Doing has a serious purpose--to help you identify and fix the common blunders you may be making with your money. Long-time investment advisor Ken Weber exposes the minefield of financial tricks and psychological traps that ensnare millions of investors--beginners and old pros alike--and shows you what you should be doing instead. Whether you're investing in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, annuities, insurance, or other investment vehicles, this book gives you the facts you need to make smarter moves with your money. Ken Weber has had thousands of conversations with investors of every type, and this book stems directly from those real-world experiences. He's heard it all, and now he wants to stop you from stepping into the most common financial potholes.

Amazon Review by Robert Comanducci DMD on January 18, 2015

The author does a superb job at directing the "new" and "seasoned" investor away from common errors and misconceptions that most have toward portfolio investing. The tone and philosophy of the book is very honest and refreshing, it is clear in every way that this book is meant to help guide people in both thought and action toward a very realistic approach to a long term investment strategy.


The arguments presented toward enjoying life more and worrying less was very reassuring, I agree with the futility of "watching" the market on a daily basis. This habitual ritual leads to very small rewards, and i've witnessed many people fall into this trap, the author excellently argues the worthlessness of timing the market, or trying to make that one great stock pick. Many of these points are nicely supplemented with anecdotes that are simultaneously amusing and helpful.


I was very intrigued by no load mutual funds, but surprised with the little confidence emphasized toward index funds.. I would be interested in a follow up to this book based solely on chapter six….The Path Ahead.


If you are looking for a book about fantasy, or visions of investing grandeur go watch Wolf of Wall Street… Then go and read this book, this is a definite must read for all people if you want grow your portfolio.
