Quotes

[05:15] - "It's easy to be bearish at this point, and the people that are rewarded are the ones that are bullish when everybody else is bearish." ~ Doug Stokes

[09:43] - "It's difficult to make buying decisions when there's so much uncertainty in the world and when the range of outcomes is so wide. I think that comes down to prudent portfolio and cash flow management." ~ Doug Stokes 

[09:58] - "As a young person, the exciting thing about the market today is the buying opportunity. If you're dollar cost averaging into your 401K plan, great. Your dollar cost averaging into lower and lower prices help with the accumulation of more and more wealth over time. But if you're reaching retirement age, the exciting component to your portfolio is that you can earn some interest on the bond side." ~ Doug Stokes
