    Who said I'm a "big stock market guy"?

    The stock market is a great way to make money...if you do it the right way.

    I'm more of a common sense, conservative, stock market girl.

    And have been for a long time.

    Plus, do you have a source for your numbers in post #39?

    Not saying or even suggesting that they are wrong, just would like to see em.

    I guess a 5 second Google search is too hard for you to do??


    While the market has consistently gained under Trump, the gains haven’t been record-setting. From inauguration day on January 20 through October 27, the S&P 500 shows a 15.38% annualized rate of return. That’s less than the annualized percentages achieved under five other presidents.


    Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama all did better over the course of their terms. The top returns were achieved under a pair a pair of Democrats for whom Trump has expressed disdain–Bill Clinton at a 17.49% total return per year and Barack Obama at 16.25%.

    Given that Obama was the one who provided Trump with a robust, healthy, growing economy - despite having started with a worst-case scenario - don't you think we owe him, perhaps, a "thank you?"
    Thanks from HayJenn and Rasselas

    You bet.

    Thanks Obama.

    Coulda been a lot more "robust", lot more "healthy", and "growing" a little (or a lot) faster.

    But thanks anyway!

    You said 11 months.

    Looks like closer to 9 months quoted in the article Jan 20th - Oct 27.

    Since the article is dated Oct 30, it would have been hard for them to measure 11 months, since as of today we have not yet reached 11 months of the Trump administration.

    I also noticed that you left out this part: "Stocks have risen in nine of the first ten months of the Trump administration, a record that no other president can match."

    I'm sure that it was just an unintentional oversight on your part, eh?
