It breaks my heart to see millions of investors fearing the worst when they should be planning for the best.
Case in point: the FANG stocks.
Investors fell all over themselves in a rush to sell last December when the markets plumbed new lows and people thought a repeat of 2008 was in the proverbial cards.
Since then, those same stocks – Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), and Google parent Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) – have tacked on a jaw-dropping $600 billion in market cap.
Chances are good you're grinning ear to ear if you've been following along with me as directed, because I recommended you do two things: 1) stay in and 2) buy more if you could.
"Buy even a single share" – if that's what it took or that's what you could afford.
That's still true today.
I know the markets seem range-bound at the moment, but my hunch is they won't be for long.
