To continue our quarterly look at some of the big names in technology...

LifeForceDancer made the claim on February 3rd, 2018: This is the most overvalued stock market in history. Stocks around the world began their crash today. Crickets? Just when this board starts to make a noise is when the market will get squashed again.

At the time, I replied:

Your previous post on this board was on March 16, 2008 entitled Warren Buffet Was Right where you said:

"To think that somehow the current environment is going to pan out differently in the long run is the height of foolishness. This board should be kept at the Fool indefinitely to remind us to stick to basic investing principles."


So, we keep the indefinitely up and running - or rather, alive - to see what happens.

A reminder of our look from June 1, 2018...
