Re: Buckets & Buffers

Don't understand all this talk about putting your money in buckets. What's the big deal about buckets? They come in plastic and metal (if you need to diversify), but none of them are worth a damn. I got a bucket for $2.98 5 years ago and they sell for the same price now as they did then. Lousy investment.

Go ahead - put all you want in buckets. I'm sticking with stocks and bonds.
