"But a bet is a bet. Nobody guarantees a bull market. Investing in tech stocks is only timing." This doesn't mean you should avoid tech stocks, either. Actually, a grouping of old-tech issues does look cheap, and they all have strong market positions. Of course, while billionaires can bet the ranch, individual investors can't, or at least really shouldn't. The old-fashioned principles of diversification and asset allocation are still smart moves for individual investors. Keep that in mind as you build and maintain your portfolio. in '02 and '03 nearly all the large player s were buying yet all the talking heads were recommending was diversification and risk... of course, looking back there was no risk (thank u greenie -eqttdr) and the market went straight up.
