The problem with this analysis, B, is that it is a retrospective pick of the exit point. For someone to have perfectly picked that point they would have to have a time machine. This isn't to say that one couldn't have booked *some* profit, but the contrast with holding would be far less dramatic. And, it would also mean holding a smaller amount of stock when and if they go back up again. The flip side is that dips are buying opportunities.One of the reasons for being leery of spending a lot of time in cash is that it is a sure loser position. Inflation *will* take away purchasing power, even if the absolute capital is preserved.
