So who else is mad at themselves for missing the Google IPO a few years ago?

January 10th, 2009 at 01:38 pm

I saw a graph somewhere about how phenomenally the stock has done since its release. It reminds me of all the old people who used to say that about Xerox. I guess I figured that the market was more sophisticated now, and also I think it was pretty difficult to get in on it. It would have had to been in my retirement savings, which is fine, but only a very small portion is in a 401k or IRA that allows purchase of individual stocks.

Oh well!

And I'm not even sure how it has done in the bear market. On a related note, anyone who went into cash before the market crashed must be pretty darn happy!

    Well, that's true perhaps but Google had one of the highest asking prices at the time, and it's very hard to valuate something like Google.... You know what they say about hindisight....

    I read the other day that their stocks dropped for the first time in years...but not by much

    About a year and a half before, I went 30% bond, 20% cash, 10% gov bond, and 40% stock. That's not all cash, but even that made me happy.
