    Yeah but I'm close to sixty, don't have thirty years. I'm pulling out some of my stock investment right before the election and dollar average back into it afterwards.

    What is the symbol for the Vanguard fund you mentioned? I found VTSMX, but it is closed to new investors.

    Great video, and perfect for the time period we are in. My thought is prepare either way, I am going to focus my investments on what's happening in the market currently. 😀💲

    Tom I greatly respect your stock pics and business acumen, but what is with your ADD like “hmm” noises? Let your guest talk and respectfully sit there and listen to him answer your question. Thank you.

    How should you invest? Keep investing in high quality stocks and don’t pay attention to the media.
