The ones complaining about massive losses are the ones that have no idea about how the stock market actually works.

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

I have about 8 accounts that I track in a spreadsheet when I come up with a "total" retirement valuation. Previous Traditional 401k that was rolled into a IRA, Roth 401k rolled into Roth IRA, plus my wife's Traditional and Roth 401k that are rolled into IRA's, plus our current 401k's etc... I used to do this quarterly, then moved to semi-annual, and for the last few year's it's been annual, as of Dec 31.

I'll keep up this strategy and pull everything together as of Dec 31, 2020 in mid January 2021. It's not worth the brain damage to do it more often than that.

Imagine if people tracked the value of their house on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.

nice

i jumped in a bit early on RCL -- at $30 / share -- but I think they'll be fine long term

their CEO has been around for a long time so this isn't his first rodeo -- Financial Crisis, H1N1, etc.

I also got NCLH at around $7 / share so I'm up a bit on that for now.

I want to hold these for a few years and see what happens.

Hopefully this anomaly will pass in the next 6 months or so.

---------------------------------


Nice bump on NCLH!

Exactly, you haven't lost money until you've actually sold the stock.

I’ve been buying OIH (Vanguard Oil producers ETF) as oil prices have fallen, doubled my holdings yesterday. I’m not expecting a quick payout, but sometime in the next 10 years I figure oil will be a lot more expensive again. Plus I figure schulumberger and Halliburton (largest holdings in the ETF) can weather a couple year storm.

the question is -- is the 'new normal' earnings reality already 'baked into' the market?

Or will we see another major series of drops when earnings season arrives and the earnings reports are abysmal?

personally i think most of its baked in already but we may see some lower levels when 'reality' hits.

maybe another broader -10% to -15% when the reality hits.

just a guess though -- I'm just a 'mom & pop' investor who reads the WSJ daily

The market is rebounding now in anticipation of the $2 trillion stimulus package. However, it's not going to last. I think earnings for this quarter are already priced in. However, the way things are looking, most companies are going to have terrible earnings next quarter and the quarter after. Just heard from a large yacht builder (one of the largest in the Country), they just closed their plant today, for 30 days. It could be longer than 30 days......most companies are facing this. I don't think it will be until the 4th quarter that most companies start becoming somewhat normal and somewhat profitable again.

Based on today's trading, the 1 and 3 month US treasury bills now have negative yields - -.01% for the 1 month and -.03% for the 3 month. The 5 year note yields a whopping +.5%. You can lend your money to the government for 30 years for 1.342%

Found out I was being furloughed last week, undefined length of time, so the $20k I had primed to dump into RCL got re-allocated to living expense...

Not. Happy.
