    Put on a skirt.

    At The Washington Post, Robert Carden writes that “a load of research in behavioral economics suggests that a man’s portfolio and pocketbook would be a lot better off if we listened more to women.” He quotes Anthony Zalesky, a financial planner: “Women are more loss averse than men, more emotionally unattached and are far quicker to unload losers.”

    By contrast, Mr. Carden writes, “men hold onto their losers a lot longer than women. They’re sure the stock will come roaring back — even as it sinks. Academics call it confirmation bias; investment advisers call it boneheaded.”
