I’ve written a Guest Blog Entry for the Stock Trend Investing blog titled Long-Term Trend Investing.
Juicy Excerpt: There’s one big flaw to Buy-and-Hold, however. When stocks are overpriced, it can take a long, long time for investors to obtain the average long-term return of 6.5 percent real. The Buy-and-Hold advocates don’t like for investors to learn how long it can take for the average long-term return to apply. How does the idea of waiting 25 years to see a good return on your money sound to you? If you don’t have 25 years to sit around waiting for the long-term to arrive, you might want to consider taking a pass on Buy-and-Hold.
