My husband wants me to sell out of my brokerage investments and keep my money in cash or Treasuries til<sic> the current crises play out. He thinks there will be a war with Iran and the market will fall big-time. In the last two weeks I lost some but recovered all. I would like to know how everyone else (and not from my broker) is handling the political events vis a vis their investments.

Is your husband Peter Lynch, or James J. Cramer?

Timing the market is usually pure Folly. I have been a Professional Investment Manager since 1974 until I retired from my Venture Capital Portfolio Management position in October 1995. I have never even tried to time the market. I just buy undervalued stocks and hold them for three to five years or sometimes for decades.

There are almost always undervalued stocks. I am buying several now.
