1. I think 401K's are back to pre levels.

I bought stocks at a point when stocks were down and theyíve gone up pretty good. Iím sure thatís how those guys gained is through their stock holdings.

3. Good job! I did similar

But did not have the courage to jump in with all my cash in March when market was tanking.
But I did put in 40% and my portfolio looks happy now. I don't think we will go down to March level this year.
