Don’t you love it when you plan for retirement and can sit back and just wait for that certain age to arrrive.
Unfortunately, a single phone call could just change everything.
My broker called me this morning and said, “Remember that stock we bought and I said you’d be able to retire at age 55?”
“Yes, I remember,” I said.
“Well,” my broker continued, “your retirement age is now 108.”
I know the feeling only too well, having purchased stocks in the past that just plummetted in value as soon as the purchase went through. Even when I did make a killing on one stock (over 4,000%), I used the profits to buy penny stocks, most of which are now worth pennies. It helps if you can see the funny side of things though.
