Yup
Been a joy to watch the stock market yesterday and today
I'm very bullish and believe it can go much higher
I'm actually pretty shocked how well the market is doing with our current very high interest rates
Can't wait for the Feds interest rate cuts and they are absolutely coming

Im probably unbalanced
80% stocks
20% bonds

My best score, Nvidia NVDA
I sold my house 3 1/2 years ago and had lots of cash to invest
Just happened to listen to Cramer on CNBC and he was raving about NVDA
So I bought in for just 2k. Just dipping my toe in
Went up 433%
My 2k worth over 11k
woohoo
Thanks Cramer

That is pretty much my strategy too. I rarely sell.

This thread started ten years ago. Do you mean that over the course of ten years, your portfolio is now valued at approximately 2.5 X what it was?

Yes. Now 2.56x. Iím sure I could have done better if just all in SPY or QQQ. But bonds of course have tamped down results a little. And usually a percent or two in cash hurts performance a tad. But Iím generally content.

My TSM is in a different portfolio. Itís around double from a year ago. Selling more today. Still leery about Taiwan.

What concerns do you have about Taiwan?

Some form of takeover/war by mainland China. Or even just the threats of such. I would still go there if I had planned to, as I donít think there can be a Ďsurpriseí attack anymore with no real warning.
Iíve already been burned by owning Russian and Chinese stocks due to our governmentís sanctions/delisting etc.

Personally, Iím just way over invested in TSM. Iíve had it for a while and itís up 15-20 fold. Iíll peek back and get a more accurate figure. Also, wifey wants some stuff that I need money for!

Taking some profits myself with DOW over 40k, then immediately putting in a buy order to buy mostly the same stocks back at a lower price, having a hunch that there will be a cycle now of busting 40k, then retreating back. We'll see

Check out the chart at https://www.macrotrends.net/1319/dow-jones-100-year-historical-chart

by clicking the box "inflation adjusted" you can see we have only just gotten back to 2021 with the 40k , adjusted for inflation. Still I expect this cycle for a while

Same thing with S&P500 if you prefer that

Now up 161%.

Of more interest is my TSM, which is now a 20 bagger. My cost basis is around 9, itís now 180ish. Itís in a taxable account, and of course when I sell a bit itís virtually all capital gains. As Iíve mentioned before, Iím still nervous about it. I may sell more today.

CMG (Chipotle Mexican Grill) is a high flying stock and their restaurants must be fantastically popular

the funny thing - to me anyway - is that they're in a mall very close to me in the food court

they're not even remotely close to being the most popular joint in the food court - a couple of little Asian joints are crushing them in popularity

I've had Chipotle's food a couple of times - I'm not impressed at all with it - very bland - kinna meh

it is healthy for the most part - I will give them that - fwiw

McDonald's has to be killing themselves for letting that one go. I find them nothing special. Not bad not great.s to the mall eateries, most seem to have consolidated under just 1-2 parents. I forget the name of one, it is Canadian, thus I forget how you would invest. But it is one of those "has-a-stranglehold-on-a-mature-market" kind of things.
