  There is no one correct way to profit in the stock market.  There are many successful strategies, and much of it has to do with a person’s goals.   Retired persons, for example, may want a strategy that gives them a reasonable and safe return, month after month after month.   My dad fell […]

Buy and Hold...

Buy and Hold…

I read an interesting study the other day.   It said that if you were a "buy and hold" investor in the stock market for the last ten years, you made about zero percent.  But, the value of a dollar has gone down since 2000, so you actually lost money.   So, here’s the question:  […]
