      Hey Chad, if I had the answer to your question, I’d stop blogging and start trading full-time. Personally, I’d recommend taking a long-term perspective on investing. Right now, I think there are some great values out there in the public equity markets due to the amount of fear and uncertainty. That doesn’t mean things can’t get worse before they get better though. Also, if you sell an investment for a gain in less than one year you pay a higher tax rate on your gains. My approach is a value-based investment approach where I try to buy great companies and hold on to them for a long time. Unless anyone else has a suggestion, I’m on the side of investing for the long-run.
