[MUSIC] MALE_2: From Fool Global headquarters, this is Motley Fool Money. Chris Hill: It’s the Motley Fool Money radio show. I’m Chris Hill and I am joined by Motley Fool Senior Analyst Maria Gallagher and Jason Moser. Good to see you both. Jason Moser: Hey. Maria Gallagher: Nice to see you. Chris Hill: We’ve got the latest headlines from Wall Street. Okta co-founder, Frederic Kerrest is our guest, and as always, we’ve got a couple of stocks on our radar. But we begin with a question from listener Chris McCullough who writes, “Can you please do an episode where you just say that everything is going to be all right over and over and over again.” [laughs] We could, but I think that would get old quickly. Jason, I understand the sentiment because it’s been a rough six months for investors. A lot of stocks that we focus on have had big pullbacks and sometimes you just want reassurance from an old guy like me to say, we’ve been through this before. It’s going to take some time, but we are going to get through this. Jason Moser: Yeah. I mean, I would put myself in that same old guy like you category and having been through stretches like this before. I am confident in saying if things eventually, I don’t know when the things will get better. It obviously is a very tough stretch for investors. I was reading earlier in the week that this is the worst year-to-date for the S&P in six decades. I know that sounds really bad. But honestly to me, I feel like that should make you feel better about things right now in that, this is a once in a blue moon, but kicking. The market is handing everybody, nobody is immune to this. If you can stay invested and keep investing, I think that you’ll look back at this time as one of the men’s emotional value. I speak from experience. I mean, the bear markets in the recessions that I’ve gone through as an investor, they just make you better as long as you can stay in the course. I’m not saying you’ll execute perfectly throughout them all, but you’ll learn a lot of lessons along the way that will help you the next time that comes around. Now, I can read you all data regarding bear markets.I can tell you that stocks lose 36 percent on average in a bear market. I can tell you that half of the S&P 500 index’s strongest days in the last 20 years, actually occurred during a bear market. Those are actual facts, that’s true. I don’t know that it makes you feel very good right now, but I do think those are things worth keeping in mind. In one of my favorite quotes, a quote that I always come back to during times like this, Shelby Davis. He said, “You make the most of your money in a bear market. You just don’t realize it at the time.” There’s a lot […]
