I'm one of those long-term investors you hear about (recent thinking is that such creatures are extinct), but must say, with the gains here I'm tempted to take some profit. Probably won't, though. I like those dividends. But gosh, VNQI has experienced some run from the bottom!
I too am a long-term investor, so at least you aren't totally alone in that category. I've been watching this ETF (I have my IRA with Vanguard) and waiting for a decent dip, but as you say: ...continues to surprise to the upside.... Is this as good a time as any to enter with a small position or do you think there will be a pullback before it goes higher? What do you see on its near term horizon?
