If you don't have to worry about taxes, if you have no emotional involvement in your investments and if you believe what happened in the last 100 years will happen in the next 50 years probably a good idea.

On the other hand consider the people in say 1955 who thought that way.

Personally I like the approach. Stick it in an index, pull out for a few years. Very hard to sell individual stocks when they are up.
