So far I've made $94 on my mutual fund investments. So there's that. That's about as far as I go. Yay for neutrality!
If you're smart and you can, buy as much as you can afford when they drop. They will rebound, as always.
I don't buy individual stocks, but absolutely. Now, would be the best time to buy. Historically the average has always shown that strong companies, who get hit by some kind of external force (e.g. 2008 housing crisis, election results, and so on), typical out-perform themselves. Warren Buffett said, "Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful". In other words, if people are selling, buy!
Logged in to a nice 3.5% gain today.
Makes up for the 3% or so loss in the last 2 months leading up to this shitshow. Almost back to my high of 9% for a running 12 month period.
