Sure. It's just chitchat as we tend to do our own thing and do not listen to others anyway.

A thing about buying stocks rather than index funds is that even when the S&P is flat, different sectors can move quite a bit in opposite directions. I like to own a bit of everything, so often spend time watching them move. Attempts to trade to capitalize on these opposite moves are not always fruitful, of course. But watching it gives a guy something to do.

PS. One can do the above with sectored ETFs. It is even safer.
