Understandable, until u have forced withdraws(IRA) or voluntary withdraws(Roth); zero tax on the Roth, tax hit on IRA, can be substantial.
See vol., all higher; u cannot go against that.
I see 17'teens next week, based on upside vol. etc
So u buy more on dip or u hold for 17 plus mol next week, your call.
But u do pay tax on gains; long or short( God forbid); unless in a Roth, hate to return to that option.
Commissions are secondary to sound investing, for me
HD has always had huge turn-over at associate level, pay not so good until u move up over the years.
Notice HD raising prices 5-15%, on almost everything; will that hold.
So, that's how they have posted great numbers the last year; raise prices, hold compensation steady.
BX hit 29 on mid Oct 2014, and averaged low 30's for months, before it took off higher.
I held thru that, no fun I can say, sold some recently, and will buy back on market pull back.
Stocks go up and stocks go down. U would be way to early at today's price, imo
I agree, and I told myself similar arguments as BX laid egg after egg in low 30's less than a few months ago !!
Your right, as I was, but I assume your'll be wrong, as market corrects lower soon.
Besides S&P did hit a new high, oh my, what else did u expect for BX, recent higher prices.
