The Union columnist Boardman’s stock market acumen?

On October 31, The Union columnist George Boardman wrote on George Rebane’s blog: “After learning Sunday that the Trump mask is the most popular political mask this Halloween, I sold the rest of our stocks this morning. We decided around Labor Day that if Clinton wasn’t a clear winner two weeks before election day, we would sell our stocks so that we are in cash election day. I hope I’m not in a position to say I told you so when the markets close Nov. 11.”

Ouch! Here’s how the stock market has done since George sold — it is at record highs. And to think George was once a business writer.screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-2-30-51-pm
