I’ve been seeing a bunch of “buy and hold is dead” pieces. Here’s an example. Look, my view is that investment methods travel in eras. I remember the 80s-90s, where buy-and-hold was the rage. I also remember the 70s where tactical asset allocation returned, as well as gold bugs and other tangential market participants.
The popularity of investment styles is a trailing indicator of investment performance. Buy and hold will once again be popoular after three years of a rising market, and that should arrive in the next 20 years sometime.
It may take too long, but “buy and hold” will return.
