These have done me well the last few months but I'm sure the wave will soon crash......
I am by no means an expert, but I think your plan to move into less risky investments is wise.

It just seems as if there's been this mad buying frenzy since the market bottomed and everything's gotten out of hand. Tesla has a P/E of 1,222 !!! I just can't see how it can keep going in this direction.
