Re: Where on earth is the value investor to go ?

What with indexing, Vanguard, and some cash and bonds, my big consolation is, if I go down, everybody else will, too. *
That doesn't console me at all. Having lots of company won't solve anything if you find your self on the Titanic.
I would much rather be lonely in a life boat!

Re: Where on earth is the value investor to go ?

Heh, heh, heh

My trusty no. 2 pencil says a 50% market drop combined with a 20% bond drop is livable in my balanced index based retirement.

Wrapped around the emotional Maypole - if it happens, you bet! Just stand there and do nothing - my fond hope!

The modern version of 1966 - 1982 - aka long sideways movement with an entertaining 73-74 type drop combined with some new form of stagflation is not something I look forward to - but it doesn't keep me awake at night either.

De Gaul and the Norwegian widow ride on. Got my Yogi Berra book from last year in case things get really grippy and need to lighten up.
