Many retirement experts say the current financial climate presents an opportunity for investors - especially those with more discretionary income - to buy into the stock market at bargain prices.

Gee Whiz! People loved bargain prices all the way down. People said when Buffet got warrants to buy $3 billion in GE common stock at an exercise price of $22.25 at any time over the next five years, he was really getting a good deal. It closed at 8.51 on Friday. I wonder if those warrants are ever going to be good for anything. The stock is already down today in pre market.

I find it really amusing when people talk about bargains in this market. The futures look terrible today pre market. The decline is far from over.

Do not believe the "experts". People have been saying to buy all through this bear market. Sooner or later they will be right, of course, but the people who followed their advice may already have squandered their assets.

I don’t think he’d be putting this money to work if he didn’t see some real value in these companies. He’s getting an opportunity to invest in top-notch companies at discounted prices.

And now discounted even more. Such a deal!
