Well Could be also Lincoln or Concord. In either case enclave of beauty, MIT and Harvard professors, numerous Nobel Prize winners and 1 million dollar houses .

No too bad for Immigrant like me.

Sorry, wasn't being negative. Attempt at humor.

SIL has one of those $1MM houses in Lexington...she and most of her neighbors would not be pleased (more like outraged) to know that one of their own owned PM stock or any of the VICE makeup.

They're big on investing in more healthful causes regardless of the return.

Most people here in Lincoln, Lexington, Concord earn huge sums of money but invest little. Those 1 MM houses with Teslas do not mean financial independence.

But going back to sell in May.

I like simple investing that has excellent returns. And buy and hold good equity ETF is simple approach that works. So I do not sell in May and pay Taxes next April and think/decide when to buy.

And it works remarkably well
