Many investors are angry, frustrated and disillusioned with stocks. Anecdotal evidence suggests that some people have decided to swear off stocks forever. Others may be wondering how much more pain they can endure before they also bail out. Those reactions to the bear market are no surprise.

But if you've already sold all of your stocks, please reconsider. And if you're thinking of jumping ship, stay onboard. No one knows what the stock market will do tomorrow or over the next few weeks and months. But with the market at such low levels, the opportunities are far greater than the risks.
