I love MJ because he makes me question what I am doing all the time which is good.
He's had (we've had), 13 years now of relentless up in the stock market. Unprecedented I think (maybe I am wrong). I mean look at the chart.
At the same time, of course depending on your start point, gold at least, compares favorably.
The slope of that stock rise line is pretty darn steep right now. Maybe they've figured it all out and stocks will never fall again. Maybe MJ will have an average 12+% return for years and I'll only have 6%, but I know I can sleep at night (not saying he can't!) whereas in the past when I was trading and mainly 100% stocks I'd have anxiety attacks everytime there was a dip.
And... in the chart below, if anything, gold has a pretty good looking cup and handle...if you're into that sort of analysis.
