I feel pretty good about my b&h, I have no intention to do anything with it today. Work goes on, construction site down the street still active, I will be doing travertine again after lunch unless the markets go haywire. Lots of calls already this morning from friends who think that I know more than I do. One friend turned on me and called me “a fukking sellout” for having a b&h fund!
Regarding the idea someone (Racket?) had about boomers retiring, my anecdotal experience is that a doctor friend of mine is now retiring at 63, another friend who has worked at Honeywell his whole life just put in his notice at 63, another guy I know who was a stock promoter and who had a second career with the USPS is retiring now being 71, and there are others. All are relying on their 401k’s and IRA’s, all have done well in the markets in the last 20 years.
