By June 20, 2024No Comments

Fear or FOMO?

It’s Episode 164 and we’re seeing a dichotomy in the market between investors who want to stay in safe money market funds earning 5% vs. those driven by FOMO to speculate in riskier assets like Nvidia. While Nvidia has had parabolic moves, it’s anybody’s guess when the party will end. Meanwhile, there are many other opportunities to be broadly diversified in areas that aren’t at all-time highs.
