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.

I think it is fair to say there has been zero "noise" on this board which has remained dormant for a decade or more.

Your last 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.

AMZN on that date closed at $66.53 ($1408 this morning)
INTC on that date closed at $35.52 ($46 this morning)
MSFT on that date closed at $22.15 ($90 this morning)
GOOGL on that date closed at $210.15 ($1103 this morning)
NVDA on that date closed at $16.56 ($228 this morning)
ORCL on that date closed at $17.36 ($49 this morning)
QCOM on that date closed at $30.83 ($65 this morning)
CRM on that date closed at $13.88 ($108 this morning)
AAPL on that date closed at $16.23 ($159 this morning)
NFLX on that date closed at $4.71 ($263 this morning)
FB, of course was not public then, but it closed at $38.23 on 5/18/23 ($188 this morning)

Of course, throw in the dividends for those above that pay dividends to get the total return to see how right or wrong Warren Buffett was with regard to technology investing for the leaders.

BRKB on that date closed at $84.90 ($205.50 this morning)

BB (strong believer in Buffett as well and hold Berkshire as well as plenty of the technology stocks listed above sans ORCL - both in index funds as well as individual shares)

P.S. You are correct - this board should remain at the Fool to remind us to stick to basic investing principles.
