I won’t deny that I have considered leaving a chunk of the profit in the account and dabbling a little for fun.Good with the bad for sure, not only is it stressful but you spend a lot of time researching. Ive been pretty good at it but still leave the long term investments to a financial planner.
My wife’s family are the kings of whole life insurance wife has a ****load of 5-10k whole lifers that her parents got her and she drops a hundred here and there. I finally got her convinced to start cashing some in for term and using the cash to buy solid dividend stocks that will pay the difference of the larger term policy and what she currently has and not having to pay anything in and having some hopeful capital gains and residual value. So I have to try to keep those separate also. So there are about 2-3 stocks I have to avoid.
