The Dow Jones Industrial Average passed 25,000 for the first time this week, and tech stocks reached new records, too. At more than eight years old, this long bull market has to end sometime. But so far investors are still riding it.

Roughly half of Americans own no stocks, even indirectly. The wealthiest 1 percent own about 40 percent of shares and the richest 10 percent own 85 percent.

If you’re in these cohorts — and even if you’re not — how are you changing your investing strategy in response to these record highs?

The poll has expired. Thank you for your submissions.
