I have a hard time understanding how anybody could have missed the stock market run the past 7-8 years. The Feds, under Obama, basically TOLD us that they would keep the market moving forward. Now, under Trump, with the easing of regulations and taxes, it's almost impossible to imagine a scenario where the market doesn't just keep booming. One thing the market drivers know for sure, there is opportunity under Trump to make A LOT of money.....and it may not come around again for awhile.....they aren't going to miss it.
If you don't have money in the stock market, in some form, I'd like to know why. If I only have an extra 20.00 in my checking account at the end of the month I throw it in there.
I still have zero in the market
I invest exclusively in my own company at this point and my returns are much better than the market. If I have $100k to invest I can just hire another sales person and turn that $100k into $500k or more within a couple years. I figure that within the next year or two I will diversify out from just my business and purchase some real-estate and put some money in the casino (er market)
Send me a prospectus.
I wish I were more diverse. Only investments we have are in the market. We have no debt but when I try to convince my wife that we need to buy some land at the lake or buy a lake house she says she does not want to go back into debt.
