I'm reading the newspaper comics to Daisy the other morning and one of the comics referenced inflation, a concept I assume Daisy is not familiar with. Because she requires my wisdom, I take the time to explain it to her.
Me: You see, prices generally go up over time. Stuff gets more expensive as the years go by.
Daisy: Not for you.
Me: What? Not for me? Yes for me. Why would you think this doesn't apply to me?
Daisy: Not with that stock you own.
Zing! Daisy was, of course, referring to the stock from the company I work for, that comprises the vast majority of my portfolio. It's current price is about 2% of its high. If Daisy has learned one thing from her old man, it's not to listen to his stock market advice.
