    If you are paying a high watermark fee I don't really see a problem with that. Just make sure they beat market by more than the fee

    2% management fee from some random guy at etrade is a different story. That said if I had money and could somehow get money with a fund like Renaissance Technologies I would probably gladly pay the 5/40+ whatever it is now

    Especially annoying when that all seems like a rookie mistake.

    Way to go, Janet.

    I'm more annoyed because I expected something sort of like this but didn't have it on.

    it seems like overall this is good in the long term it is indicative of a sustained US recovery....

    I think it's awfully difficult to attribute much of the rally in stocks in the past couple years to a strengthening US economy. Growth has been below trend yet SPs have been en fuego.

    If the latter part of the rally is in large part due to ZIRP / easy money from every world central bank / crowding people out of safer assets, seems like you'll need a whole lotta sustained US recovery to pick up the slack when they turn the tap off.

    I agree that the US is looking good. And they need to normalize policy and now is as good a time as any. But I don't think you'll get very far into that process without asset prices adjusting lower.

    That's not a bad thing. It's just a thing.

    The US may look good or at least better than it was but a lot of other countries are still in a rut. The US isn't going to buy the world out of it either.

    The market is taking out the froth, as CNBC likes to say.

    I still believe in FB, like a lot, so I'm not fazed at all.
