    I'd probably stick it in an ISA and get two good performing funds and just cross my fingers. My fave punts would probably be Baillie Gifford American, AXA Fram tech or Polar Capital tech and hope for the best.
    Log back in next year and see how I did.

    Baillie Gifford can’t do anything wrong currently.

    The only fund I don’t have that’s not with them is SSON, and that’s because it’s part of Terry Smiths group, and I avoid funds(Woodford is an example why).

    Lets be honest..I’m a massive SMT fan, Anderson and Slater have shown over the past 10 years they are incredible stockpickers.

    I went with MNKS because is not my own money and it’s less volatile.

    Seems after the excitement on Monday/Tuesday everyone has either (a)taken a position waiting for the Vaccine injections to happen eventually or (b)have switched back to Tech Stocks prospering whilst we are locked down...or I guess (c) sit on cash

    Also read that Biden is in talks about a future(post Donny so January) US lockdown. If so, Big Tech again will prosper.

    What’s everyone else’s plans.

    Personally, I used the last 3 days as an opportunity to move my portfolio around(based on b)but I stay fully invested.

    Plan is to carry on as normal. Investing when I have cash available. Seems like the only reasonable course of action since nobody knows what's going to happen. So stick to the plan is my plan. If you don't have a plan, then make one first. This year there have been times when it feels uncomfortable to invest and they are usually the best times to invest looking back.

    Tesla TSLA, -0.47% shares on Monday closed at a record $385, supplanting a previous all-time close of $383.45 in June.

    On Tuesday, analysts at Jefferies started their coverage on the stock, siding with the bears: They rated the shares their equivalent of sell and forecast the company to lose money at least until 2020, one year past what other analysts have predicted for Tesla.

They have little proprietary knowledge and no idea how to mass build cars. Once the press starts to turn against Musk then his woefully inaccurate projections will be highlighted and investors will run a mile. In the meantime, Jeff Bezos will quietly carry on killing Space X with Blue Origin.

The likes of VW and BMW are already producing better electric cars, with better tech, on time and have huge upscaling capabilities. Whatever foothold Tesla get is dwarfed by the existing car companies.

    The doubts are well founded. As of last month, the total number of Tesla vehicles ever produced reached 250,000. Volkswagen and Toyota each make that number every 10 days. The traditional carmakers have decades of experience that give them real advantages in building efficient production lines and managing long supply chains.

    While Tesla has been grabbing all the headlines, General Motors has been quietly building mass market electric cars. In the 10 months to October 31, it has delivered 17,083 of its brand new Chevrolet Bolt fully electric vehicles and another 16,710 Volt plug-in hybrids. It also promised that it would produce at least 20 new electric models by 2023.

    The market is listening. GM shares are up 30 per cent in the past 12 months, and it has reclaimed its crown as the most valuable US car group, after briefly losing it to Tesla. GM is gaining market share in conventional cars and many investors believe that it is better positioned than many peers to survive the coming shift to electric and driverless vehicles. Not only does GM have the Bolt, it also put $500m into ride-hailing company Lyft in early 2016.

More and more I think this is going the way of a Ponzi
