Ho hum - stay the course.

The hormones will flare up as we get toward football season and like the deck chairs on the Titanic I will bet/shift small amounts on my few good stocks.

heh heh heh - no more pssst Wellesley, small side bets on VG REIT Index and Sm Cap.

Target Retirement for retirement (worse than watching paint dry). A few good stocks for entertainment while I agonize over the monentous decision (after 5 yrs up here) whether to switch from the Saints to the Chiefs. Inactivity in the stock market via index funds after 1977 got me to ER. My active stuff was entertaining though - nerve wise. .
Mick, you should publish a glossary or study guide.

Wow - W2R! You are so reliable! Amazing!

Time for you to start a paid subscription service and publish the W2R Whee-o-meter!

Ok, OK, enough, Mr. Market.

Mr B is bumming. He owns a smaller number of stocks, in decent size lots. He's glued to the Google finance page lately.

Miss Chicken Feathers, primarily a mutual fund owner, is not losing any sleep.

We are at opposite ends of the investing style universe.

He considers my investing style to be pretty booooring. And he's right. Oops, did I just publicly admit he was right?

The good news is he is a long term buy-and-hold investor within his small palette of individual stocks.

Just don't get in the habit of admitting that he is right. I am pretty sure there is a lifetime quota for woman, and the sisterhood will punish you if you violate it

But...but...but...he tells me I'm right, just not all the time.

I know what's happening here...he just wants to stay "lucky". Anybody who can schmooze me successfully is quite the man.

My equity portion of portfolio was up 1.39% today, beating the S&P of 1.06%

At this point, I am down only 1.1% from the "pre-Wh***" level. Let's see how long until I can go back to setting a new personal high watermark.

Man! Every time W2R makes a "Wh***" post, it costs me the equivalent of a few months of living expenses!

Until I came to this forum, I never understood why every so often, the market would take a huge step backwards. Even now, people who are not in the know still call this phenomenon a "market correction".

Yep! I did not know either until I pondered the question, as I posed it here.

Gloom & Doom

Farrell (from Marketwatch.com) predicts a crash late in 2011 after the S&P500 reaches 1300 and interest rate rises to a new level. He thinks that Wall Street continues to lie to us and our brains are vulnerable to the lies. Anyway, he's nuts - Mr. Gloom and Doom and psycho.
Here's article: Market Crash 2011: It will hit by Christmas Paul B. Farrell - MarketWatch

Farrell makes a living predicting the end of life on earth. So far he's got a perfect record - 0 for 37.

Eventually, he might be right.
