Profitability has got nothing to do with it.

Your short was betting against a powerful whole market, and it just didn't work out thus far given history.

I've been holding off a large sum (*for me) to buy big into Vanguard index funds, but now's clearly not the time. In another year, I may look back and be saying the same thing and kicking myself in the ass, but timing is everything.

Most of the portfolio stocks are at or nearing ATH which makes me believe we're just riding consumer confidence or we'll be seeing a correction in the near future (6mo - 1yr), so I'm planning for the latter.
