    I did an interview with Mike Swanson (Wallstreetwindow) on the weekend for this audience. I went ahead and added it to my channel. Anyway that's the reason why it starts off with him speaking first. 

    When you discuss being in

    When you discuss being in a "bear market" you mean a cyclical bear  in the middle of a secular bull, right?  I rewatched your Big Picture YT video from last summer and was thinking that if an investor has a multi-year timeframe and wants to hold MSFT and AAPL for example, they could expect with some confidence that prices will get back to their highs as long as they're willing to wait a few years.   Does that still make sense, given the market behavior over the last year?  Thanks Matt, and great video as always!

    The hope for everyone is

    The hope for everyone is that it will be a bear market in the secular bull, but who knows. Those secular cycles are more an academic guess and with the size of the debt everything bubbles and grand experiment of all the central banks who knows, I wouldn't be married to that. 

    But otherwise my same comments apply that I discussed in that interview. After a bull market ends and even if it's a cyclical bear, most of the time you have new leadership in the next bull market. Too many investors won't be able to let go of the past and will pay too much attention to past leaders looking for re-entries into those names once the bear market is over, when in reality there will be new leadership where the far bigger gains will be made. It's kind of like CSCO, it's still around, but after the 2000 - late 2002 bear market ended, there was new leadership and CSCO wasn't one of them -it was better to focus on new leadership.
