"Q" said: "Having been investing using the Saul method, I see things a little differently." I too made money following the information available on his board, but at some point each of us, who have lived through a number of market downturns, has to evaluate whether it "really is different this time".

Second half of 2018 and first half of 2019 I was in that investing style. From June to October I started a rotation out, at one point getting as low as a 10% allocation in those type of stocks. Currently I'm at 35% high growth, with 1/3 of that in a high growth ETF. I am likely to be rotating that down once again over the next two months.

This time is never different. The thing about the Saul investing strategy is that you really will lose more when things tank. The question is, were you in that strategy for a long enough period that you grew the balance high enough, that even after a large set-back you are still better off? That actually can happen, but I do not believe that pertains to me. Nor can I stomach that type of a sell-off in general. So I keep my exposure down.
