The Reddit.com Community took up a discussion of Valuation-Informed Indexing late last week.
Juicy Comment #1: Gee Rob, you are basically advocating buying low and selling high. What an ingenious concept you’ve got there.
Juicy Comment #2: I just don’t think the analogy with cars is a good one.
Juicy Comment #3: Your idea is what we should all strive for but don’t delude yourself into thinking it is easy.
Juicy Comment #4: One reason why many people cannot judge if the market is at stupid levels is that it isn’t easy to find the aggregate P/E levels.
Juicy Comment #5: The market is artificially propped up by QE and the type of investor you’re talking about is gonna get crushed.
Juicy Comment #6: This is not economics. Try putting this in r/8thgrademath.
Juicy Comment #7: When compounding returns, the initial amount matters the most, don’t lose it! If you make a reckless bet with $10k when you are young, that is equivalent to making a reckless bet with over a hundred thousand dollars when you are old.
Juicy Comment #8: I have been rooting for stock prices to fall. I hope there is another economic downturn in the next few years and I believe it’s pretty likely.
Juicy Comment #9: With horror stories already abounding about pension plans how is it possible for any of these plans to remain solvent and pay out at present rates if the market craters as badly as predicted here?
Juicy Comment #10: I have at most a basic understanding of money; this helps clarify things a lot for me.
