Must See: Buy-n-Hold Rhapsody

We put this together with Geoff from

Dedicated to all of the stubborn stockbrokers, experts and pundits that could not bring themselves to say the word “sell” at any point. What do we need them for?

Let me know your thoughts…. Thanks again Geoff for your great work … it is timed well for the 100th anniversary episode of The Disciplined Investor Podcast.

Lyrics ( in case you want to sing along)

Buy-n-Hold Rhapsody

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a stockslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
At Bloomberg and CN-BC.

I’m now a poor boy
I need advisory
Because it’s easy come, easy go
Bubble high, Crash low
Never sell my broker told
Doesn’t really matter to him
To her

Suze, told me not to sell
Put more funds into my plan
October bottom Warren said
Mama, retirement had just begun
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away

Did ya’ mean to make me cry?
If m’funds not back again this time tomorrow
HOLD on, HOLD on
As if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Losses up and down the line
Wallet’s aching all the time
Goodbye, everybody
I’ve got to SELL
Got to leave buy-n-hold behind to face the truth
I don’t want to lose
I sometimes wish I’d never invested at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, Scaramouche
Will you watch the Mad Money?
Buy-n-Sell and lightning-round
Very, very frightening to me
(Noriel) Roubini
(Noriel) Roubini
Roubini, Noriel
I’m now a poor fund and nobody loves me
(He’s just a poor fund from a poor family
Spare him his loss from this monstrosity)
Easy come, easy go, will you let me Sell

No, we will not let you sell
(Let him sell!)
We will not let you sell
(Let him sell!)
We will not let you sell
(Let me sell!)
Will not let you sell
(Let me sell!)
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, mama mia, mama mia
Mama mia, let me trade
Beelzebub has a devil buy-and-hold for me
For me
And for you

So you think you can fool me with buy-and-hold lies?
So you think you can charge me and watch my money fry?
Oh, Broker
Can’t do this to me, broker
Just gotta get out
Just gotta sell right outta’ here

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters but the fee

Any way the market blows
