Moral of the story… for the past 20 years investing in the stock market has been one of the worst ideas ever almost as bad as investing in real estate. The gold nuts were right. If you invested in gold over the same period you would have been better off. Seems like in real estate, stocks, and most likely gold market timing is everything. Buy and hold strategy has been proven wrong.

Killing It in the Stock Market

I’m absolutely killing it in the stock market right now. I invested just at the bottom in early march and just invested some new money last week. I took some profits off Bank of America, Ford, and sold my position in Genworth Financial right before the news of their TARP intelligibility. Check out my updated portfolio. I plan on taking profits when the market is up to cover cost of stock and buy more stock when the market turns down (Which it will, this is a bear market rally that won’t last).
