BTFATH ??

Another thing, the outperformance of EM and Euro stocks was mainly due to the relative decline of the dollar’s value in the years prior to 2011. No one has ever mentioned any data of EM and Euro stocks in terms of local currency.

If surging stock prices create the urge to change your strategy then you don’t really have a coherent strategy. Chasing performance is a guaranteed way to generate poor risk adjusted returns.

    Problem is, you don’t know what is the “generational low”.

    Stocks went parabolic from 1994 to 2000. Following the same pattern, we are probably around early 1994. However, even during the worst days of 2008, stocks never crashed to below 1996 levels. Taking into account dividends, stocks probably never crashed around 1997 levels.

    So my dilemma is whether to “wait for the next crash”, like what some people have been doing since 2009, or to “BTFATH” ???

        I don’t think lowering the corporate tax rate to 15% is going to make currently overvalued stocks suddenly undervalued. But I’m sure it won’t stop another bubble. We’ve already taken out 2000 and 2007 highs so why not aim for 1929? Lunacy knows no bounds.
