Over years (Jan 1993) of ER I have gone from looking at Mr Market every day to full auto 2006 and not looking as much. Ballpark 60/40 circa the 2008/2009 kerfuffle to more like 50/50 recently when I looked at the dip.

So does that count as having your swimming trunks on? Time before I stayed the course and did nothing.

heh heh heh - this time my hormones required buying some Total World Index and Berkshire B with mad money we didn't spend on travel given the virus. Need to revisit Mr B's admonition of 'enough'.

A long list of companies in trouble enough to have suspended or reduced dividends and/or stock buybacks. In fairness, many of these were not “swimming naked” before the virus hit but have instead suffered since.

A high ranking acquaintance from a major corp just suffered a 50% pay cut. However I look at the corps stupid buybacks at sky high prices and somehow feel no sympathy. In effect there was no pay cut given the bonuses already given. Fact.
Took SS at 62 and hope I live long enough to regret the decision.
