The people who bought at the top i 2007 and 6 years later are not at break even :)

That was my point Man, If those people were net buyers during 08-09 while reinvesting the dividends they'd be rich.

Now if they panicked and sold without reentering the market they'd be poor.

Just sayin' trying to time Mr Market is a fools game. Of course the rule buy low , sell high always applies but you don't know when that will occur until it occurs:)
