The Eerie and Humorous Outcome of Palm Reader Versus Financial Planner

Palm ReaderWhen reporter Priya Anand sought financial planning advice from a palm reader and a financial advisor, she got surprisingly similar advice on how she should invest in her future. Both thought she should trust herself when choosing investment options, with the palm reader basing the advice on a personality reading and the financial advisor suggesting that investing is like following “The Force.” Both advised she invest in smaller companies, though only the palm reader was willing to drop names and advised against Apple and Google.
