What You Should Really Worry About

In this week’s episode:

When the geopolitical headlines are bad we're often told the markets are wobbling as a result. But are terrible events in far-flung countries really likely to impact your investments -- and if not, what is worth worrying about? Owain Bennallack asks Mark Rogers and Nate Weisshaar, who also consider the new man at Tesco (LSE: TSCO), and the investing lessons learned by old man Weisshaar, who's off to pastures new within the Motley Fool. Plus the team pick three shares for the truly long term: Monitise (LSE: MONI), Markel (NYSE: MKL.US) and Diageo (LSE: DGE).
