    Good time to think about buying more for long-term if the current discounted AAPL price goes lower.
    Or if thinking about gifting shares – the recipient can get more shares if one is thinking of giving a set $ amount.

    Interest rate risk is real.

    But it’s no big deal.

    At $120, AAPL’s a steal.

      With inflation currently about 1%, and the Fed’s goal is 2% (as it has been for decades) where is the risk?

      Certainly it isn’t the government flooding the economy with liquidity. We saw/learned from the bank meltdown of 2008 that in extraordinary situations massive injections of liquidity does not result in runaway inflation.

      I believe we have two of the best possible people (Powell and Yellin) watching over the US economy, and they have repeatedly stated in no uncertain terms they aren’t concerned and will maintain current easy money policy for at least two more years.

      Our economy has taken a severe blow and it will take time (2+ years?) to fully recover, which means there is room to grow before inflationary pressures rear their ugly heads.

      As the economy opens up, bond yields will stabilize, turning investors into equity buyers. When that happens rotation will reverse from growth to value back to growth, and it will occur much sooner than later.
