ďThe market does reflect the available information, as the professors tell us. But just as the funhouse mirrors donít always accurately reflect your weight, the markets donít always accurately reflect that information. Usually they are too pessimistic when itís bad, and too optimistic when itís good.

It's important to read stuff like this. And to act on it. Or not. Because there is what may happen, what the reaction may be, what the right thing to do may be, whether or not the right thing to do is appropriate for me, and whether or not the opportunity arises to do the rightest thing or just a mostly right thing. Or not. Stay tooned. ... sh-2014-12 ... -of-growth

The funds available in my 401 and how they've done year to date (YTD). This chart looks worse than the one from the weekend above. Rough three days. How much I got and where are shown in the table above from the weekend... Coupla thoughts...
The S&P 500 looks better than our managed funds... It happens.
Small Caps and EuroPacific showed nothing. That happens too.
Bonds were amazing. I held none, wish I'd held more.
Holding stocks from 1st quarter of 2009 to September of this years was easy money. Sometimes it's not easy. Like this year.
I'm still long and strong. I've done well since 2004 and I think there's more to go here. There'll be volatility.... but in 2008, I ran for the hills because it made sense. Here, I think I'll hold on through the rough spots. I don't see a huge crash or bear market that'd make the timing easier.
So I'll stick with what's working for now.... the long term trend...

in Oct '87 and I bailed 3/2009 in my 401. Different animals/different reality. I'call '87, '98, Dec 2014 crashes and too hard/too late to time, I'm staying put. For now... 2009 was a bear market....
