Re: Buy and hold or market time?

i consider my fund portfolio my real investments and the individual stocks i buy my speculations.......although i have made money over the decades with my individual stocks the gains arent even close to my fund portfolio.....of course im not taking all the credit for the funds performance as im a long time subscriber to fidelity insight..non the less 100,000 in 1987 is now 1.1 million ...i think i averaged about 6% or so when all was said and done on my individual stocks....not great growth but certainly alot more fun than funds .
