Surveys show that most people believe they drive better than the averages, even while we know this can't be. Too many financial advisors recommend individuals should invest only in ETF index funds because surveys show average investors can't beat the stock index. If we wrongly assume we are all better than average drivers, we also wrongly assume we are all likely worse than average investors. Further, as is rarely pointed out by these pros', individual investors command select key advantages over large liquidity obsesses institutions; these have mandates not to consider smaller companies -which nevertheless combined often make-up the majority of a country's economy. Not least, many smaller firms are growing faster than the averages and pay higher dividend yields. While ignored by the institutions, these are to be pruned and picked by us, the empowered individual investor.

"Thailand is initiating large new infrastructure spending in year 2016. Investors would be wise to pay attention as it will lift the economy and bring a sort of mini-boom to some key sectors by late 2016. Many smaller companies will benefit; sold down listed companies which are mostly off-the-radar screens by institutions and brokers alike. It's the real Thailand which often gets ignored. I predict substantial share price appreciation will unfold by such leading smaller infrastructure/construction-related and other firms. Many of which I know well and have visited in person over the years". March 15 2016. Paul A. Renaud.
