Yes, all retirees should definitely participate in the coming stock market surge. They should consider cashing out their annuities--even at a loss, if necessary--to do so.


Stock and bond prices go up and down, but the money you lose to fees, commissions and costs is gone forever. That's why it's best to minimize/eliminate the latter.
