And if you believed in the Tesla mission 6 years ago you would have 10x your investment.If I was an idiot, I would have invested in TSLA @ $360 in hopes that it would go to $420 like EM suggested. Right now it's at $316. But in your world that's NOT "spent" money...it's an "investment". I have shown how paying off ones home can save Interest over time, which interest is INDEED "spent" money.
So yes, I will remain at the $2 Blackjack table counting cards and trading 21's with the house that pay me 1.5x. You can roll with the bottle service at the $500 min crap table. I don't enjoy the same privileges as you, so please excuse my poverty stricken (risk adverse) financial methods and goals. But don't patronize me.
Whether you would have been an idiot at $360 certainly seems evident today but we'll see if a year from now that may seem like a bargain. Many thought Tesla at $30 was ridiculously overpriced too.
