I was kinda surprised that it is not down that much. I did see my value history, and I am glad I did not look at it in March.
I thought early retirement was off the radar, but today I am OK. I am optimistic about a recovery so things are much better than I anticipated. I do have 1/4 or so in a guaranteed moderate yield, so that helped the overall number.

I monitor my financial well being here on the computer usually once a week. I't's come back more than I was expecting after what I was seeing in March. Not back to where it was but back more than I thought it would. At least it's headed in the right direction.

I have been dumping in 25% of my pay every month, so that makes it look a bit better than the market. This is the first time I looked at it since January.

If we can just get Trump Re-elected we will be in good shape, my big worry is somehow the Dems cheat their way in, and screw the economy and market.

Structure is helping a lot now. Portfolios should have about 25% - 27% in income preservation class. It will take the edge off market dip.

The market has rebounded way too much way too fast IMO. We are in for a summer haircut.

No one calls me for my $$ opinion, so there's that.

Dow is up nearly 7k since it's low point in March. It's at 25,652.88 as I type. That's down from its high of about 29,500 in Feb or March, think it was March. Lots of optimism.

I am only worried about that IF these asshat blue state govs stay shut down until the election. And it looks like they're trying to. In the deep blue states with liberal supreme courts they hay get their way.

I agree, at some point the market will come back into reason, but the low bond rates have pushed up the average PE ratio. So a reasonable PE may be above above the historical mean, but the stock market is still pretty nuts, like 1999 nuts.

I think there will be a lot of turbulence and uncertainty in the market until after the election. The dems need to keep the economy held back to make Trump look bad. Republicans will be pushing it forward to the best of their ability. The media will be all out anti-Trump (nothing new there). As long as things open up and people can start circulating and spending again, the market should trend up overall, but it will be a bumpy ride. Media negativity will bombard everyone. Get the planes going, and the cars driving so we can spur the oil industry again...

I have been an AMZN investor since 2001.
P/E is not the way to look at that stock.
I monitor the revenue growth... to calculate P/E potential, assuming they could charge a 5% profit if they stopped growing.

Wife's investment account has re-gained 70% of what it lost in March. Up 10-12% versus 12 months ago.

I'm currently sitting about 6% below where I was in early March. That also included what I've put in since then, so I'm probably closer to 7% down.

My high was in February and I'm still down 8.8%. But I'm drawing a little out of mine so its not all the market. I also have a pretty high tolerance for risk, running about 74-76% stock.
