Now, I know that lots of my readers are already yelling at their computer screens — “Buy and hold is dead!” goes the cry, and that has certainly been increasingly the sentiment of the market over the last few years … especially since, in so many stocks, “buy and hold” has meant “buy and watch them go down over time.” Any inflexible strategy is bound to have problems and down years … heck, even the flexible ones have down years … but still, there’s a certain part of me that loves “buy and hold.” Missing the worst days and the worst crashes in the market is great if your stop losses get you out before the bottom hits, but not missing the best days has historically been more important, if only because those who sell as their stocks go down are generally terrible at buying back in before the stock … Continue reading
