Listen

When Barry Ritholtz, founder of Ritholtz Wealth Management and a Bloomberg Opinion columnist, shared his list of cringe-worthy financial phrases on Twitter, he realized people have strong opinions about this topic.

Twitter users sent Mr. Ritholtz more than 500 examples of phrases that are overused by financial professionals and should immediately stop being used. According to Mr. Ritholtz, people in finance should never use the following five phrases:

1. "This is the next Amazon (or Apple or Google or … )."

2. "It's Uber for _____."

3. "But what's that worth adjusted for inflation?"

4. "The easy money has already been made."

5. "The stock market hates uncertainty."
