Buy and Hold...Enough Already!

June 16, 2009 – Comments (7)

Can we stop this debate now? Please? I have read that Buy and Hold is dead, unconcious, missing in action, taking a coffee break, and alive and well. All of these opinions have been offered up by TMF writers. So, which is it really? Who should we believe? Has Obama planted a mole in TMF HQ to rattle our cages? I am a LTBH Bull, in case you were wondering. So maybe I am extra touchy about the inconsistancies in THFooldom. Even I were not I would still be concerned that we have five sets of eyes looking at the same piece of sky telling me that they can't agree on what color it is.   [more]

I agree that some health exposure to precious metals is a great thing to have right now. I'm also of the opinion that potash is highly under regarded and must be considered for your portfolio. The farmers depend on it, as to the animals and crops we eat. If all the gold evaporated tomorrow we would be okay. If the same happened to potash we would be in serious trouble.
