Something interesting happened last week, as I am sure we are all now aware. During a meeting the next day, a colleague turned to me and asked what I thought about the recent debacle regarding Game Stop. I sheepishly confessed I had not even heard about the controversy. It seems that since I moved my retirement plans and HSA into self-direction entirely, my interest in the public markets had completely diminished. After quickly plugging back into the financial news and learning about the unusual actions and wild swings of transactions – it reinforced the notion that having all your funds in the stock market is foolhardy.
