Now that the stock market is in the doghouse, the contrarian in me is quite interested in adding to my investment holdings and taking advantage of cheaper stock prices. True that my investments are down around 30% or so from last year (I plan to give a portfolio update at some point), but if you’re someone who’s keeping the faith about the long term prospects of the stock market (typically 10 years or more), then this could very well be a good time to add to your equity positions.
