my first Nvidia lot was at $5/share

started doing a deep dive into into AI when IBM Watson was on jeopardy, saw what researchers were doing with CUDA and knew it would be huge

Waymo is a sleeper now... they just opened up to the public in san fransciso with no wait list, when they scale to other cities, I think their adoption will be rapid.

I buy equity mutual funds automatically every week as I have funds available which takes out the emotion and requires only a one-time decision on a strategy. Thus, I don't expend any mental energy on it nor any time on a recurring basis.

"Time in the market beats timing the market."

Not sure if you were asking about savings bonds, though? I have decided to buy the max on those (Series I) in late January every year.

Boring is good.

US markets are steady following assassination attempt on Trump

https://www.cnn.com/2024/07/14/markets/premarket-stock-trading-trump-assassination/index.html

Quote :
"US stock futures barely budged after an assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump on Saturday, signaling calm in the markets as Trump survived the incident.

Dow futures rose 65 points, or 0.2%, while S&P 500 futures rose 0.1% and Nasdaq Composite futures were unchanged."

Historically, in the US, markets go up despite which party holds the presidency, as long as nothing too extreme and anti-business happens. Markets also tend to like when congressional power is split as they like certainty and stability, and Congress being split usually means no major or abrupt changes will happen. In this election, both presidential outcomes ostensibly represent known quantities for the market, although personally I'm not at all sure that a second Trump term will be nearly as "restrained" as the first. Trump is likely seen overall as more pro-business with his stated desire to further cut the corporate tax rate from 21% to 20%, and to extend tax cuts, although in practice his policies could cause considerable long-term damage.

Check out the chart of returns by administration with party color-coding midway through this article (or actually read the article):

https://www.investopedia.com/presidents-and-their-impact-on-the-stock-market-4587369

Suffice it to say, I don't plan to make any adjustments to asset allocation or to long-term investment strategies based on the presumed outcome of the election. Stocks went up under Obama. Stocks went up under Trump. Stocks went up under Biden (now considerably more than that chart shows due to year-to-date returns not fully included). In fact, the only administrations in recent memory with net losses were under Republican presidents (GWB and Nixon). Our institutions are about to undergo a test for the ages. Hopefully they will survive, but they almost certainly won't emerge the same / unscathed.

Maybe. Maybe not.

Today was a good example of why it's important to stay in the market and ride the wave rather than to try to time it. If you think you can figure out with confidence ahead of time what the market is going to do or how it's going to react to any one event and when, you stand to lose a lot of money you could have gained on big up days. Even though the long-term trend of the stock market is up, a lot of days it just moves sideways, or sightly up or slightly down. Most of the net market movement in a year occurs in just a few days. It's not realistically possible to predict what days those are going to be and to jump in and out of the market. It's also much less stressful to just save and invest and let it ride.

Also, the Dow is just 30 stocks.

Law of averages

That's not a real law. If things always returned to the average, the stock market wouldn't grow over the long term. Yet it does.

In human/economic terms, yeah, I'd agree. But if you think about it on a larger scale, wealth and everything we've generated (while not being zerosum in terms of the economy) is because we also have an input from resources from the earth and being able to manipulate all that and use it... which will eventually average out in some way or the other.

Wonder how market is tomorrow. They liked assassinations until they didn't. I suspect they will like Biden dropping out before they don't.

I predict that the market will be either up, down, or flat tomorrow. You heard it here first, folks!
