Well, what can I say about the first half of 2020? I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that was probably the worst six months of many people’s lives. Incredibly, it didn’t end up being the worst six months for the stock market at all. The Federal Reserve stepped up and essentially said they…
I previously outlined the reasons why I would be buying stocks in my personal portfolio during the COVID-19 stock market sell-off. In a nutshell, this virus is a temporary disruption and not an indication that there is something fundamentally wrong with the U.S. economy.
Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) CEO and legendary investor Warren Buffett is known for buying stocks during market downturns. Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway stock investors made a killing off of his timely investments during the financial crisis in 2008.
