You think he doesn't know now? People act like he's a total idiot, a Forest Gump character who just happens to stumble into good fortune. I think that is far from the truth. In another thread someone talked about how uneducated he is. The man has an Ivy League education. He built a billion dollar business. Say what you want about his less-than-humble beginnings, but the fact is that he built that business and turned into a huge enterprise. Idiots don't do that. He is many things, many of them things you couldn't wipe off your shoe fast enough if you stepped in it, but stupid is not one of them.

As for investing, I have no idea what to do. I'm just sticking with what I've been doing. But, I'm first turning 48 in a few weeks so I've got a lot more time than you do, Dom. I've seen people say they are cashing out. Maybe consider cashing out some of your assets?

Regarding Ivanka, she could conceivably be the sole voice of reason in his echo chamber. She's our only hope for helping the environment, gay rights, women's rights, etc. I don't know she will come through on all that, but she is clearly our only hope.

No, he isn't stupid, he is sly.

RE: Investing under Trump
The Republican Budget Resolution introduced today (read it, you just won't believe your eyes), has the national debt rising dramatically, by trillions.
http://ktla.com/2017/01/03/senate-republ...esolution/
On March 16th the Continuing Budget Resolution expires, and Trump will have to propose an increase in the debt ceiling. And the Republican house of cards will start to crumble.

Happy St. Patty's Day, Mr. Dumspter. Your campaign lies will become obvious.

There IS no "alternative" to Obama Care,. The ACA is basically Mitt Romney's plan that Obama agreed to.
The Republicans have NOTHING as an alternative.
The "repeal" is not in the resolution introduced today. Repeal is basically a hoax.

RE: Investing under Trump
What IS probably going to happen, (at least partially), is that if either Italy or France elects their right wing version of Trump, (which is possible), then the Euro will disintegrate. For sure if France elects the woman who is pushing her version of Brexit, that's the end of the EU. Those few hours/days following that election will be THE best time, probably in our life-times, to make an easy fortune by selling the Euro short. Whooo-hoooo.

RE: Investing under Trump
Highly recommend investing in something more stable if you're not feeling good about a stock. Keep in mind that if you feel that way, other investors are as well. S&P 500 perhaps. SPY, NOBL, etc. Check the VIX to see how investors are currently feeling, check 10 yr yield. Dividends, drip drip.

I'm fairly new to investing but I'm in it for the long term. I don't care about loud-mouthed schnooks and their Twittering; I'm going to be putting money in and leaving it there. (pops over to online brokerage and buys a few more index funds)

Everything I have these days is in things that pay dividends, and very long term holds. My largest chunk is S&P 500 funds since I can sleep at night and it's stable.

Buy reliable car at inflated prices thanks to Trump, or buy shit car? Decisions, decisions.
