Here is a quote from John Thompson, CEO of Villas Capital in his quarterly newsletter of 10/10/18:

Sitting in cash, or under one’s desk, in the name of prudence is ignoring the facts that consumers are healthy, many stocks are cheap, equity ownership creates wealth significantly above inflation, and trying to time the market is a fool’s errand.

This represents my belief  as well.  Times like yesterday test how strongly one can hold to their beliefs.
