When it comes to investing in the stock market, a Sturgeon Bay investment associate recommends that you implement a steady, long-term approach no matter the volatility of the market.  On September 2nd, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a record high of 35,443.82.  Since then the market has dropped to under 34,000 as of this past Thursday.  Casey St. Henry of Thrivent Financial in Sturgeon Bay says if you invest in the stock market, you should follow the fundamentals and think about the long-term.

St. Henry says people should not have knee-jerk reactions to the stock market at any given time and always seek professional advice to stay on track with their financial priorities.
