Smart Buyers catch the downs on quality stocks. Institutional makes the up market and individual buyers make the down market. In the long run follow the institutional guys.

YES! 'Bout time for a rebound. I've been watching my retirement pretty close for past 8 months or so, and it's been kinda stagnant. Hope this will kickstart a little upswing.

All I know is that I made .05% interest on a Savings Account last year and I made 6.9% on my 401k invested in stocks and insurance contracts. My fund is 30 years old and was a great deal because when I was working my employer put in 50 cents for every dollar I put in up to a max of 5% of gross pay. They also paid 100% of my health and dental insurance, were self insured and paid every cent of whatever claim you had without question (within the limits of $5 million lifetime health and $2500 annual dental for each of the whole family). Those deal's probably don't exist in today's world because that was a different America.

Two stocks, HD and Delta, that I have, have increased more than 200% in the last 18 months not bag for a small investment.

Yes...,now is the time to be in the stock market. I had one fund that had a 13% return last year.

I guess the million dollar question is when to get out of the market.

If you are young, don't get out. If you are around our age, sell when you can, not when you have to.

Sounds like someone needs to fire their investment adviser!

Stocks are always going to be the best place to invest your retirement money. Set it and forget it! If you start young, contribute religiously to your IRA / 401K, and stay the course through the ups and downs, there is no reason you cannot retire with $1.0M or more when you hit 65. Think about it: $1.0M investment account earning a reasonable 5% annual return is generating $50K a year in income. That plus social security will most likely pay the bills and by beer for your average Joe until they die without them ever having to touch their principal.

PS: Savings accounts and money market accounts are a joke! You might as well bury your cash in the back yard.
