As a fundamental investor, should you simply ignore price trends, volatility, and current news or rumors? Everyone in the market realizes how impractical that would be. It makes no sense to act as a "purist" and even those who swear by the financial statement react to price news. Many of the television financial shows devote two-thirds of program time to reminding viewers that the fundamentals are what count; and the remaining time discussing price "winners and losers" and making predictions about market index movements! So these so-called fundamental adherents wind up their programming on purely technical matters.
