The college years are typically a time when
students begin mulling future employment
prospects and, in many cases, investing money
for future savings. But in a year when the stock
market has been altered by terrorist attacks
and corporate corruption and investors have
seen retirement funds and nest eggs crumble,
experts advise students to use a great deal of
caution in investing money, if they invest at
"These are scary times, and it also turns out,
perhaps, good times for investing," said
Finance Professor Nejat Seyhun. "I would not
recommend staying away from the market ...
everyone should be in the market to some
extent, especially at this time."
Business School Finance Chair Anjan
Thakor stated that investing is a good idea for
college students, given it is for the long run.

"The long run means you have no need to
liquidate your portfolio for urgent and
unavoidable expenses for at least 10 years and
diversification is a necessary precaution."
Seyhun shared the same sentiment. "College
students can best afford to ride out ups and
downs of the market
over a long holding
period," he said.
He also noted that
research shows one of
the best times to put
money in the stock
market is after periods -
of large declines.
But as Jeff
Carnevale, MBA stu-
dent and vice presi-
dent of research for
the University Finance
Club, pointed out,
"We may be nowhere
near any sort of bot-
tom. Markets bottom
in 10 to 15 years, not
two or three.
Valuations are also
nowhere near the lev-
els where previous
market bottoms have"
He added, "You
may find yourself
waiting for years, if
not decades, trying to
gain ground or even
recoup your initial Traders on the floor of theI

have been times throughout history where the
stock market has done absolutely nothing for
Carnevale said he felt the U.S. still has a
bear market and "one of the absolute worst
things you can do is to buy into a bear market
too soon."
On the other hand, Seyhun said he believed
"corporate insiders are beginning to turn bull-

But regardless of how the market is shaking
out, all three stated that if one does decide to
invest, diversification is key.
"You should allocate for funds across all
asset classes to achieve diversification and a
comfortable level of risk," Seyhun said.
"My philosophy is to hold a diversified
portfolio of assets and not take large bets on
any individual hot stocks, small companies or
blue chips," Thakor said.
Seyhun advised to "follow a strategy of bal-
ancing your portfolio periodically. Suppose
you will keep 60 percent in stocks and 40 per-
cent in bonds. If the stock market goes up a
lot, sell some stocks
to bring the fraction
back to 60 percent.
In the long run, you
will find this to be a
good rule to follow."
While he said he
was in favor of occa-
sionally purchasing
small stocks, he
added it is necessary
to think about the
long term.
"It is not OK to
jump in and out of
small stocks based
on rumors. It is also
not OK to chase
after winners. You
would not buy and
sell houses based on
rumors. You should
not do it for stocks
Carnevale even
advised holding cash
for the time being.
"The winner in a
bear market is the
AP PHOTO one who loses the
New York Stock Exchange least and has the
most chips to play
with come the next bull market," he said.
Short-term government bonds are also a
good bet, he added.
Seyhun reminded that it is important to
compare stock price with the overall value of a
